Sephora by OPI - 212-Sephora

I'm SO excited to show you guys this nail polish.. I bought it in December while I was doing Christmas shopping in Sephora and of course I had to go look at the nail polishes. None of the Sephora by OPI nail polishes ever really made me go OMG I have to have that color but I took a look anyway and I'm so glad I did.. I never saw this one before and it was hiding on the bottom shelf and I absolutely love love love it. It's called 212-Sephora (obv) and it's named that for the Times Square location (that's the phone number). So I looked at other blogs who swatched this color and their saying it's sold out and that it was a limited edition & that it was only sold at the Times Square Sephora but I found it at a different one in Manhattan so I'm not really sure what the story is with that. But it has flakies & glitter all in one. The polish is a sheer black that needs about 2-3 coats to become opaque or you could just layer this over a black nail polish and use it as a top coat. I used 3 coats in these pictures. So the flakies are orange/green and there's holographic glitter. The nail polish doesn't look completely black because of everything that's going on in the polish so it looks sort of copper. Another blog I read said that the nail polish was supposed to represent the streets of Manhattan with the glitter being the lit up night sky & all of the action going on & the orange flakies being the embers of cigarette ashes on the sidewalk. That made me love it even more. I love Manhattan already and to walk around with it on your nails? I die. Here are all of the pics I took because I really want to try and show you all how amazing this polish is. Oh, and I believe this polish came out in 09? But I never saw it until last December! Wish I would've found this sooner.. I might have to go back and get another bottle.
