*Metro Chic* Sephora by O.P.I

In my last Sephora Haul, I ordered the ever popular Metro Chic nail polish from Sephora by OPI.  I know a few friends who absolutly adore this nail polish and its color.  I don't have many dark colored nail polishes so this was a new color to my stash.

*Metro Chic* Sephora by OPI

On the nails:

This is definitely a dark nail polish. I thought it would be more taupe and lighter in color, but it was pretty dark.  However, I like the color.  I'm starting to love darker colors, I just have to find the right ones to work with.  Metro Chic had good nail polish texture, wasn't too runny or too thick. It did take me 2-3 coats to get a even color which probably made the color a bit darker after a few layers.  For me its not a WOW color, but it works and definitely see why many people like it.  Its more of a neutral dark color which I see can work for many people.

Overall I like the color.  The price is average with other higher end brands just like OPI. I do have other Sephora by OPI colors and this one works just as well.  No regrets so far!

Metro Chic can be bought at any Sephora or online.

Are you Metro CHIC?

I really like this color and it's dark but not super dark. I actually didn't realize OPI made colors for Sephora. This looks really pretty on you, you're good at painting nails. hehe.

Following you now, thanks for your sweet comment

I love dark colors too! But I have to admit they are harder to maintain! :p Worth the effort though :)

I love this colour as well! This is one of those shades that is a dark taupe to light brown in terms of neutrals this is about all I can handle. I've tried the grays and the lavenders and they're not the best look on me. I'm going to get this :)

I really like the color! I had something similar awhile back and adored it for fall. It's like chocolate for your fingertips. :D

this is one of my faves! iused to wear black all the time, then i kind of used metro chic to transition over to lighter colors.
