OPI Keeping Suzi at Bay

Today I have another one of OPI's new San Francisco polishes to share with you, Keeping Suzi at Bay*. This is OPI's 2013 Fall collection, so a lot of the polishes are a bit darker. I'm still loving Summer, but these deeper, darker polishes are a welcome change.

OPI's Keeping Suzi at Bay is a beautiful cobalt blue shade. This creme finish is perfect on it's own, but I'm also thinking that it would be great to use as a base under a glitter polish. This formula was incredibly pigmented, and I almost got away with just one coat. However, I decided to add a second coat to deepen the colour and even out any streaks. I did add OPI's Top Coat to add a bit of extra shine. This polish dried fairly quickly, and I wasn't left with any streaks, bald spots, or any other issues.

OPI's Keeping Suzi at Bay is a beautiful shade that I think will be a great transition colour going into Autumn. This shade is a mid-toned navy, but it does appear a bit darker in person than in pictures. The formula was great for this polish, so if you don't already own a similar shade then I would recommend picking up Keeping Suzi at Bay. The actual colour isn't terribly unique, so if you already own a similar shade, I would skip on this one. 

Have you picked up any of OPI's new San Francisco shades? Are you looking forward to the darker shades that come with Fall, or are you happy rocking neons and brighter shades for a while longer? :)
