Run With It - $9 at sephora.com
I haven't been blown away by the other Sephora by OPI polishes I've tried so far, so I was ecstatic when I tried out Run With It. Metro Chic was pretty but a bit thin and I just didn't love it. The much-talked-about 212 was a solid "meh" in my book. Run With It is one of those shades that normally fly just under my radar being neither jewel-toned nor overtly sparkly. This subdued sandy shade is such a gem, though. I can't remember where I saw this first, it must have been another blog, but my curiosity was piqued big time. Now I'm thinking of it, it might have actually been the Sephora blog that got me drooling over it... I grabbed it finally when the 15% VIB thing was going on at Sephora and I couldn't be more thrilled. The light dusty beige base and the gold and silver microscopic shimmer are a sight to behold, albeit you must "behold" it fairly close to your face to appreciate it all. The effect reminds me of fresh sparkling sand. The application was very good, two coats would do it for most anyone, but three for this neurotic gal. The finish can look a tiny bit frosty till it dries, but disappears once it cures completely. I love the slightly-off and dusky quality of this neutral beige, and the shimmer just puts it over the top.
