Manicure: O.P.I. Yoga-ta Get This Blue nail polish swatch

If you love blue polish, you need this in your collection. O.P.I. Yoga-ta Get This Blue is my favourite polish at the moment and goodness knows it was on my wishlist for years. It kept getting sold out every time, on every website I tried to buy from.
Yoga-ta Get This Blue is from O.P.I.'s India Collection. For some reason, polishes from that collection are hard to come by. I've been running after Royal Rajah Ruby, Mon-Sooner Or Later, Charmed By A Snake and I'm Indi-a Mood For Love as well, to no avail - all I can find are Moon Over Mumbai and Elephantastic Pink, both of which I don't want.
The first photograph is in direct sunlight and the second is indoors, facing natural light. The third picture was taken just during sunset, no flash on any picture.
Anyway, Yoga... is a "rich-mysterious" blue. I can't think of any other kind of blue that will suit this polish. It is lighter than O.P.I. Ink, Russian Navy, Unfor-Greta-bly Blue (more teal-ish) and CG Up All Night (closest shades to this that I can think of). This isn't as vampy either. I've read that it is better than Chanel Blue Satin. The Bourjois Blue Moonlight I wore about a week ago is much vampier - blue-black, even (see here). I love that I can wear Yoga-ta Get This Blue alone, whereas with any other polish, I need to stamp or shatter or do something else. And it stays on - I've been wearing it since Saturday now and there is some tipwear since I use my nails for everything from opening caps of bottles to peeling veggies.

The camera makes it look more shimmery than it really is. This is the colour of the cape the mysterious gothic hero wore when he appeared in your dreams at midnight - a deep blue with beautiful teal-ish microshimmer which isn't as evident in real life as on camera. A topcoat gives the polish extra depth and you can layer it below a nice glitter.
Apparently the polishes in the India Collection had iffy brushes when they came out, but O.P.I. has since worked on them and provided regular brushes; I didn't have a problem with this. In fact, this is one coat on two fingers and two on the other two. The polish has slightly smudged on the middle fingernail where I had a run-in with my camera lid. These are without topcoat so you can see the colour in all its glory. If you pardon the pun and love nail polish and/or the colour blue, you've got to get this blue!
