Throwback Thursday! OPI — Blue Moon Lagoon (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: OPI 2003 Summer, It’s Summer for Shore

Since I’m planning on re-swatching many of my older polishes, I thought I’d encourage myself to get going on that by doing a Throwback Thursday (yeah, not too inventive!). It’ll just be a quick swatch and a comment for these older polishes.

Blue Moon Lagoon is a sheer baby blue holographic shimmer/nanoglitter. I did three coats in my swatch; you’d need an extra one or two for full opacity. I’d prefer to use just a coat or two on top of an opaque polish.

OPI Nail Lacquer retails for about US$9.50 / higher in CA$ (I see a range of prices) and is 0.5 US fl oz / 15 mL. OPI nail polishes are currently free of toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor. (Since this is an older polish, I suspect this is not 3-Free.) They are made in the USA.

OPI has been owned by global beauty company Coty Inc. since 2010.

    • Yes, they are best as toppers, for sure! No sense doing 8 coats to avoid VNL (visible nail line)!

      Ah, right. Was the label change an indicator of when they went 3 Free? I can’t recall if this was linked with the Pro-Wide brush, too.

      Here’s the old black label (I’ll add it to the post, as well):


    • I suspect most of my OPIs are black label, as I stopped buying many of them after the Pro-Wide change (I am guessing that happened not too long after the formula change). CANNOT REMEMBER ANYTHING. Ha!


      • I’m wearing OPI Coca-cola Red this week with the wide brush and omg, that brush is wider than my pinky! I don’t have many OPIs… for the longest time I only had “I’m not really a waitress” just because it was a cult favourite. I should check if that’s a black label.
