I have long suffered from very dry, flakey and cracked cuticles. No matter what I tried they would always reappear as soon as I washed my hands to ruin any manicure! I tried the OPI Avoplex as I have long been in love with the OPI Nail Envy Polish that had saved my nails after a life long addiction with extensions ended. The cuticles oil really didn't disappoint. Firstly it comes in a little tube with a brush on the end which makes it super convenient to pop in your bag and apply on the go. Secondly the oil itself isn't so much of an oil but more of a oil gel. It's less runny than some others but I found this a really good thing as it allows you to rub it in with the brush and not get your hands messy. The oil itself worked wonders on my dry cuticles and smells lovely too. It also works well to help dry nail polish if you put it on after your top coat! An all round fab nail product by OPI that I will continue to buy.
OPI is a well known nail and hand brand. Originally was used for professionals but over the last few years has been sold and marketted on the high street. I have used the original avoplex oil in the 15ml bottle and also tis handy sized one. The difference is obviously the size, the bottle is 15ml and this is 7.5ml. But more importantly the texture, the oil in this format is sligthly thicker, so application is easy as you have to squeeze the product out, and if the oil was too thin could be messy.But the thckness means its easier to control and work with on the go.
I originally loved this idea because when Iused the bottle, could never really take it with me as I woried the bottle would break, the brush would come loose and the bottle would open so scared of accidents.Perfect size and shape for women who want to put this in their bag or pocket.Not singling out the guys, but alot more unisex than taking out a bottle that looks like its nail varnish!
This avoplex oil still has the lovely aroma to it as the original, makes the area around the cuticle nurished and mositrized and used after applying nail polish makes the finishing lookmore professional as if you have just come out of a salon. Its one of thise products that isnt as exciting as nail colour, but essential if you want your nails and cuticles to be and look more healthy.
