I love this colour, in fact i love all opi polishes. They last longer than the average polish and iv also found opi tends to last longer than other premium brands.
I do use opi top and base with the colours and they tend to last me 4 - 5 days before chipping.
A long brush for an easier application and the bristles are straight so you get a nice neat finish near the cuticle.
I have had opi polishes hanging around for years and they dont go thick and clumpy. The polishes have a little ball inside so when you shake the polish it mixes the colour well and keeps the polish at the right consistency.
Even though the colour is quite dark, it does come off easily with nail polish remover and without leaving stained skin around the nail. I use nails inc dippy pots to remove my polish as it keeps nails strong and healthy.
iv seen no damage to my nails when using opi polishes, they have always remained strong. This is a lovely colour for christmas and nights out.
Opi brushes allow easy coverage and straight lines with the 3 stroke technique. Middle, side, other side. However, nail polish always looks best with two coats, top coat and base coat. I found that the colour dried very quickly too which is another bonus when using opi polishes as its so easy to smudge the colour! This has got to be one of my favourite opi polish colours. This and alter ego :)
