Sephora by OPI: Tempted By Teal

Tempted by Teal is my first Sephora by OPI polish. It's from their Garden of Good & Evil collection. My mom was nice enough to get it for me while we were both at Sephora for my free birthday gift back in September. It was either this or Looks Like Rain Dear, which I've been wanting for a while, but since this one was limited edition, I figured it was the better choice. And it's beautiful too, so no complaints here.

As you can tell from the name, it's a teal polish and it's a metallic. Looking at the bottle, there are streaks of gold in it, but that's really only for the metallic finish. Sometimes, I did see bits of gold on the nail, but it's not super noticeable. 

It's kind of blah and boring in the shade, but in the sunlight, that's when it really comes alive and shines. It's super beautiful. I hardly have many pictures in the shade, compared to how many I have in the sun. And there are a lot of pictures in this post, just to warn you.

I don't own any metallic polishes besides this, so I don't know if all of them are opaque but I'm pretty sure this one was from what I remember. I think I did about two coats, but then again my brain is a bit foggy.

Here are some bottle shots. You can really see the gold that I was talking about. Excuse the smudge on the cap. I stupidly smeared my finger against it when I was painting another nail.

Now some shade pictures. Not every exciting, but still a nice color.

See, the sunlight brings out all the magic!

This was a nice way to go for my first Sephora by OPI polish. I wouldn't exactly call this color unique as I'm sure there are many dupes for it, but for my collection, it was. So if you are lacking a metallic polish in your collection, this is a nice way to start. Thanks for reading!


  1. This is such a gorgeous colour!

  2. LOVE how shiny this polish looks! I don't have it, but from your photos, it looks like the kind that looks lit from within and 'glowy'.
