OPI Nail Varnish
Advantages: Good nail polish
Disadvantages: The brush is a bit on the big side
I came to know the brand - OPI when I read about nail polish reviews online. There was a lot of good reviews online and I started using OPI nail polishes some years ago and had been a loyal customer to this brand.
The package of OPI nail polish is simple. It has a black screw on top and a clear body. The clear body allows you to have a look of the colour of the nail polish. The bottle usually contains 15ml.
Applying the nail polish
The brush of OPI nail polish is quite wide. The good thing about it is that you can finish painting one nail quickly but it also means that it is more difficult to control. You may also easily make your fingers dirty if you are a complete beginner....
The colour is generally a bit lighter than what you see on the bottle if you only apply one layer. I generally find that the colour will be best if you apply two layers of the nail polish. The colour is also very truthful to the colour shown in the bottle so you don't have to worry about it.
If you apply a base coat and a top coat then the OPI nail polish can normally last for 3 days which I think is quite satisfactory. The top edge will start to chip a little after 2 or 3 days. I was told that it was not healthy to have the nails painted 7 days a week so I would generally remove them after a few days. Therefore, the chipping problem doesn't bother me too much as I would take them off in any event.
There is a unique name for each colour and the names are very interesting. Here a few examples:
It's a Girl! (baby pink)
Grand Canyon Sunset (brown)
An Affair in Red Square (red)
Dating a Royal (blue)
They also have some special editions inspired by movies like Shrek, Spiderman...
Overall this is a brand of nail polish I trusted and never disappoints me.
Summary: A nail polish brand that I trust
