I recently purchased my very first Opi nail lacquer and wish I had done so a lot sooner. I am not the neatest when it comes to applying nail varnish but found with this one the i could easily apply it neatly, in my opinion this is due to both the high quality of the lacquer itself and the high quality brush applicator. It applies so smoothly and a second coat is definitely not vital as good coverage is given from just one coat alone. Also if you find it chipping you can apply a coat without removing the chipped lacquer without it being at all noticeable, great if you notice a chip in it when it is not a convenient time to remove and reapply. As already mentioned, the brush applicator is of a high standard and smooths the lacquer without any streaks and evenly coats the nail. It is a great shape which allows you to keep it tidy around the edges, definitely one of the best I've used. There is a large range of vivid colours available offering something for all tastes. It may appear pricey at around £10 a bottle but I do believe that it is worth spending that little extra to get quality like this. I will treat myself in future with Opi lacquer and hopefully I will soon have a nice collection of colours. The first one I bought is Unrepentantly Red, it's bright and fun a good choice in my opinion and goes we'll with lots of looks.
The O.P.I nail polish brand to begin with a great company which offers great quality nail polish products and nail products which help produce a great finished manicure. The color itself, Live.Love.Carnival, is a great color for someone who loves peachy,coral colors. In addition to this the color would be a great color to use for the summer type weather.
The pro of this nail polish is that the brush is big and gets every part of your nail so you don't need to worry about have to put to many coats over the polish and having the product run out. In addition to this the bottle is a good size considering the brush is so big which isn't common in a lot of nail polishes.
However a con about this nail polish is that it can be quite pricey and might make you wonder if you should buy instead of alternative brands such as Barry M which the cost is only about £2.99-£3.99.
This nail polish is a great nail color for someone who like the color being very simple but wants to up their variety of and be a little bit bolder. They would want to do this because change is great and a lot of people want to do this for the summer season and try out new things.
A thing about this product is that it is very good quality and if you want to buy a good quality nail polish I would highly recommend this brand.
I bought this product as a gift for mothers day after we had used it before at a spa weekend and she loves it. I was so happy with the finish of the product and it dries reasonably quickly!
I bought this as a friend had given me a gift voucher for my birthday, I love the bright colour as I wear dark clothing but I thought this would be a good way to inject colour without being over the top. The main problem I have with nail varnishes is they take forever to dry and I seem to be re doing my nails within a few days which is really annoying.
The nail varnish was really easy to apply as the brush wasn't too big as my nails are quite narrow and I find with some brushes they overlap onto the skin and I end up looking like a child has painted them for me. The colour was really even with just one coat and there was no need to apply a second coat but I did the first time as I was worried it would chip.
The price for the nail varnish isn't the cheapest around £8.50 for 15ml, it comes in a clear bottle with a black handle which is very sturdy.
The nail varnish itself I would describe as very creamy and light it doesn't drip easily when its on the brush so there is no danger of mess. It goes on very smoothly and there is no need to keep re applying to the same area. When I took the nail varnish off I found that it was easy to remove with a standard nail varnish remover, I was expected my nails to be stained but I was surprised that there was no residue and no scrubbing to get the colour out of my nails.
I would recommend this nail varnish for ease of use and durability I haven't found anything that I can criticises it for. it is a little more expensive than other nail varnishes on market but it is worth paying the extra as all the problems I have had with some previous nail varnishes I found I didn't have with this one. I have since bought a few more colours in the range and I am extremely happy with all of them.
I picked up this nail varnish at the beginning of summer this year following a major clothes and cosmetics shop and have since gone back and bought some more.
The quality of it has impressed me no end, but the reason I bought this particular colour was because it matched my holiday bikini but I haven't limited my purchases of this brand to that particular colour. It is one of the most fantastic genuine nail varnishes I have ever owned and is an absolute steal at the price I paid for it in comparison to the quality it has given me; I paid £7.95.
The colour is strong and doesn't fade easily either, regardless of how much sun, sand, sea and dancing it is exposed to! It doesn't chip easily and this was a big thing for me as my holiday was very active with adventure activities during the day and partying at night: so much action in which my hands were used but not one single chip. It has a natural shine to it which doesn't quite look glossy and tacky but doesn't look fully matte either: it has a perfect balance.
The actual brush is very good quality also and doesn't split easily or fray and certainly none of the tiny bristles have broken off. The nail varnish liquid is quite thick also and doesn't water as much as some other brands do, and therefore requires very little nail varnish to cover a single nail.
It is very easy to remove with the correct removal liquid.
