Humn... I'm kinda on the fence with this one... I purchased LMS because it professed to be a sort of blackish blue shade. At a glance (in bottle) I got the impression this would be along the lines of CC's Vamp in tone but forgoing the purple/red in exchange for a deep blue, which I was all about. When applied really what I got was a dull purple and black mix. Now lemmie clarify: If one is looking for a kind of flat black and purple mix OR if one wants to stray away from basic black nails, they will like this shade. I personally was disappointed because I expected something completely different--I get zero hues of blue. I suppose its a unique shade but I could probably have just mixed a black and purple to achieve the same at a lesser pricepoint. I also don't find it very flattering of a color either and it took 3-4 coats to even get any sort of color depth.
Its not terrible I guess, just not what I thought it would be and def not as advertised. So if you are looking for that hint of blue on any level (hence the name of product) you will likely be disappointed.

When applied the shimmer shines through and is very visible when it dried with the top coat .. I was disappointed .. Certainly a very frosty dirty dark navy petrol colour with micro shimmer. Very campy especially with long nails and a great shade for winter. The formula is a little thicker than usual and is not streaky.

Any polish that only requires 2 coats is a winner in my books, and Light My Sapphire is a winner! It also dries relatively fast which is always a plus :)
The colour is almost black (with the slightest flash of navy blue under the right lights), so it's perfect if you're looking for a 'black' that isn't a full jet black.
My only negative (and it's only a small one) is that you need to be extra careful not to get it on your skin, as it does appear to 'stain' it ever so slightly if you let it dry there. Get rid of any excess straight away and you'll be fine, otherwise it does wash off within 24 hours :)

Light my Sapphire by opi...it is what it is: one of those mysterious dark nail colors that for most viewers it's simply labeled "black", but given a few more minutes they will see the darkest shade of blue with a minuscule hint of gray, which I'm a fan. I was looking for a darker blue shade for a couple of months. The navy blue didn't seem right. So I found out about LMS and I bought the color yesterday morning and put it on as soon as I could. Before buying it, I asked the girl if I could quickly take a look at the swatch. It showed up black, then I got it closer to the window for natural light, and then it was the darker blue I wanted. I'm a happy camper.
Because I have so many nail polishes, 1 bottle of light my sapphire it's enough for now, so probably I wouldn't buy another one in the next few months. Some people find OPI's brush to be a pain, but I don't mind it at all.
Now what works for ME: every time I put on any mysterious superdark shade of nail polish I tend to dress more feminine just to even things out: skirt and dresses (with winter attire), gold rings, a shirt with a nice little bow, messy bun, side ponytail. And I tend to really care to keep my cuticles super healthy because it makes my manicure looks clean.

It looks gunmetal gray/black indoors, but under sunlight you can see that this polish is actually a very dark blue with silver shimmer. The formula isn't very pigmented - the first coat is barely there. I use two thin coats and one medium coat to get this opaque and smooth. It doesn't dry very quickly, so I recommend a quick dry topcoat. It only lasted two days before chipping. This was a gift, and I probably wouldn't have bought it on my own. I won't buy it when it runs out, but I don't mind wearing it on occasion. It doesn't stain at all.

Dark blue/black. Doesn't really show up blue on my nails at all. I was hoping for a dupe to Chanel Blue Satin, but this isn't quite it. In the bottle, there is a really tiny hint of mica shimmer if you look closely..i was hoping those would show up on my nails but they didn't. Flat and boring..good quality though. This polish lasts a week on my nails.

This color was ok. It is a shimmery purple/ gray color. I hated that fact that the first coat was so sheer and you need atleast 3 coats for it to look opaque.

Somehow it looks purplish on me, and I was hoping for an iridescent navy. oh well, it's still nice and dark (even though my hubby and a few male friends prefer lighter colors).

LOVE THIS! I was afraid this would look too much like Russian Navy, but it doesn't! RN has purple in it while LMS is straight up blue. It is soooo pretty with its deep sapphire blue and shimmer. I know it kind of looks black from afar, but I wear black polishes EVERYDAY and even a subtle difference is a difference. I really like this and am glad to have it in my collection!

I didn't actually buy this polish. I just had it put on my fingers and toes at a salon. It's gorgeous! It's a very dark sapphire, pretty much the exact color of a very dark sapphire. It's almost black but much prettier than any black I've seen. So far I like this much better than any other almost black I've ever seen. It's a nice sophisticated color, not too goth, not too matronly, not too juvenile. I have short fingernails and so far I've had this on for 6 days with not even one tiny chip. For comparison I normally get a chip within 48 hours and have to take my polish off within 3 days, even with other OPI colors. This is great stuff.

I have tons and tons of opis I just picked this one up been looking for it for a while. It's pretty unique it's a navy blue with a grey tinge and grey/blue subtle sheen in it. Definetly a must have if you love dark colors!!!

I have bought this colour many years ago. It's been sitting with all my other colours for a long time. Everytime I want to pick it, I put it back down and pick another colour. I finally try this one. At first I was a bit sceptical about the colour. It's took dark almost black. The 1st coat was scary. It's too thin. But once I put the 2nd coat on, it actually covers very well. The colour is very dark blue, almost black at a glance. But if you see it under sunlight, it's a beautiful, almost vampy dark greying blue. It also has very subtle sparkles in it. It's a very attractive colour. I love this one and will buy it again.

Okay, I've tried to love OPI polishes. I desperately want to, because they come in such incredible colours, and they go on like the shiniest vinyl - it's a very sophisticated finish unlike any other brands I've tried.
However... the staying power is just awful. And I'm talking, one day before it starts peeling off (or sliding off in complete nail-shaped pieces), with very basic activity such as washing hair and washing dishes. NO other polishes that I own, even the $2 chemist ones, have such poor wear resistance.
Plus, I use Seche Vite topcoat, so I feel like I'm doing everything right - after three OPI failures I've now come to accept it's the brand that's the problem. And that's extremely disappointing, becuase I love the colours so much! If I want to keep wearing them (and I do), I guess I just have to deal with one day of perfection before a new application is required... sigh.
In regards to the shade 'Light My Sapphire' - I think it's a bit dark and murky for my taste, I would like it to be more obviously blue. Will probably try Russian Navy next.

Love this. A very sophisticated deep blue with subtle silver shimmer. I think this is a much classier blue than any other I have tried, much more mature looking than something like Russian Navy, which looks very "junior high" on me. I am a slut for dark polish, and this is a great break from all the purples that seem to make up 90% of my polish collection. I have worn this more than anything else this year! On a side note, this really makes my yellow diamond engagement ring pop! :)

One of my top 5 polishes! Awesome black/grey/blue with subtle shimmer. Great vampy color, a must-have if you love darks. I recently bought a backup just in case...

This is a great nail polish is you are looking for a dark color but not black. You can see the navy in it and the silverish reflects. I thought it looked good on my toes:)

Pretty navy blue//black. Not the blue I was looking for. Takes eons to dry. Only used it once... I don't think I'll use it for a while.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
Love this color! Its so dark (almost black) but just enough navy and a hint of silver to notice its true color. I don't like wearing black polish but I do like dark colors and I'll definitely be buying this again. I think this came out a few years ago and it's a LE (?) but I just found it at Ulta last week!

LMS is a very, very dark, dull blue. It looks almost like a dirty metallic black. IMO it doesn't really qualify as a blue polish, since the sapphire is really only apparent in direct sunlight. I still rate it very highly though. I am a lover of dark polishes and this chameleon is a pleasure to wear. I really enjoy the pleasant surprise I get when I step outside and spy the sapphire in the light.
