I found Sit Under The Apple Tree (hate this name) on clearance at Ulta recently. It’s originally from OPI’s Retro collection in 2009. It’s rather sheer so I knew I wanted to layer it. I’m very satisfied with this outcome, I’ve been admiring it all day.
I knew I wanted an opaque base for this manicure and a number of base colors would work well with layering Sit Under The Apple Tree. I picked the pale, grey-ed out sage Stranger Tides. SUTAT is very pretty and delicate for a yellow / green shimmer. The micro-shimmer is so fine and dense that it really covered my nail well with one coat. It looks gorgeous and cheerful in the sunlight. Somewhat “springy” because it’s a yellow-toned green. There’s definitely a brighter cast of green that comes out when it’s applied, but it worked perfectly with ST.
I used two coats of ST and everything was opaque and streak-free. It also dried quickly. On top of that, I only needed one coat of SUTAT to get a good amount of shimmer and color. Of course, applying another layer would bump it up even more. I think SUTAT would look good layered over a lot of different colors. Neutrals, green, yellow..maybe even black.
