OPI Nail Lacquer Review

Nail Polishes

O.P.I is known for their nail polishes. I’ve heard of this brand for many years but have never actually tried their products until recently. My brother and his wife sent me a little gift and among the things that I got were O.P.I nail lacquer. I got them in four colors, and being me I immediately tried them all out on the first day. I guess sort of like taking the colors out for a test drive. Then I tried each color for a week to see how well the overall product is. The following are my pros and cons to O.P.I Nail Lacquer.

As I mentioned above I tried each color out for a week. A went with a week because usually nail polishes start to chip and peel before then, but if it lasted longer than a week I would know that the quality is better than the average nail polish. The color of O.P.I nail lacquer that I got were, ‘Makes Men Blush,’ ‘She’s Golden,’ ‘Alpine Snow’ and ‘Bubble Bath.’ What I liked about O.P.I nail lacquer was that it came in a variety of colors. O.P.I has one of the most extensive nail colors to choose from that I’ve ever seen. It’s a fairly easy product to find too if you know where to look. O.P.I products are sold in Sephora stores, and most salons.

I thought the price at $9 was moderate. It’s a tad more than the average drugstore nail polish but still not quite as pricey as some of the really high end nail colors that go for about $20. I liked that the handle was thick, and kind of tapered at the top for a good grip. The handle isn’t a slick plastic, which is nice, again because it allows for a better grip. The consistency was thin, but not watery. I wasn’t sure if I would like the thin consistency but I did. It didn’t go on goopy like a lot of thick nail polishes. I found that O.P.I nail lacquers dried pretty quickly too. After wearing it for a week I hadn’t noticed any chipping, peeling or breaking. I also liked that all of O.P.I’s nail lacquer, at least the ones I got, went on very glossy with or without a top coat. After a week my nails were just as nice as the first day I painted them. They definitely lasted at least a week for me.

The downside to O.P.I’s nail lacquer was that I did noticed some streaking with the light colors. It’s more noticeable when I used more than one coat. Other than the streaking I couldn’t find anything else wrong with O.P.I’s nail lacquer. I was very impressed with the quality. I would definitely be purchasing more of O.P.I’s nail lacquer. I would also recommend this to any woman looking for an affordable, quality nail polish. It’s more than worth spending $9 on.
