OPI Nail polish makes me get perfect salon style nails!

“Life cannot be perfect, but your nails can be!” Now this is a quote I can definitely get behind.

I have always had very brittle nails. I used to act very delicate as to not damage them. I kept layering them with nail polish to give them some density and also because I don’t have to worry about them breaking from every little thing I pick up. That’s why you will never see my nails without nail polish. Another (HUGE) advantage I get from painting my nails is that it stops me from biting them when I’m thinking or nervous. Now having said that, I have tried many nail polish brands and my most favourite is the OPI Nail Lacquer polishes.

“A woman is only helpless while her nail polish is drying”. Obviously, you do not want to stay helpless for a long time as your polish is drying (wink!). I have many a reason to love the OPI brand. One of the main reason is that they dry very quickly. OPI Nail polish formulas are amazing as they are smooth, creamy, opaque and all you need is two coats to achieve a great nail salon finished look at home. Now that is not only going to save you a lot of money because you don’t have to run to the nail salon every week to get your nails done but also saves you a lot of time. These nail polishes have good staying power. They usually last for 4 to 5 days without base or top coat. They do not chip at all and the tips of my nails are always intact.

Gloss tip: I would suggest using them with a base and top coat as they last 7 to 9 days with both. When I say they staying power is good, I really mean it. Which means a bottle of OPI tends to last longer than your regular brands of polishes.

When I paint my nails, I always do a great job on my left hand and a terrible job on my right hand (I’m right handed, so my left hand doesn’t work very well). Now many of you can relate to this. You don’t have to worry about messy nails anymore.

Glamour tip: With the OPI nail polish, all you have to do is place your hands under the running water once the polish dries and after a few mins, the polish on the skin area will peals off when you scrub it.

The nail colours come with large applicator brushes and all you need is about two strokes to cover each nail. They do not leave any brush stroke and settles beautifully on the nail. The brush holds the nail lacquer really well and you don’t have to constantly dip the brush into the bottle during application. The bottles are made of clear glass and the nail colour is visible through it and the name of the shades is usually written underneath the bottle.

OPI Nail Lacquer (Glizerland and Pink Flamingo)

The colours I’m wearing in the photo is Glitzerland and Pink Flamingo. The OPI Glitzerland is a gorgeous colour and I wish I had found them sooner. I cannot even explain how mesmerizing it is in person and also how they shimmer under the sun. OPI nail polishes have all the qualities that I love in an affordable price range. However, the only con about this particular colour is that the formula is pretty thin unlike others. Since I’m a sucker for anything bling, I’m not going say no to anything that glows as well as this. I’m in love with the OPI Glitzerland and it will be my go-to colour whenever I have trouble deciding on what to wear.

The second colour is the Pink Flamingo, a gorgeous berry pink from OPI's Spanish collection. I really love this one and, in my opinion, it’s one of the top colours in the OPI collection. They ooze class and are yet feminine at the same time. They look darker indoors than in natural sunlight and makes my fingers look brighter. Please try them and I promise you will not regret it. They are hands down my FAVORITE pink polish!!!

You can find the OPI Nail lacquer online or at OPI stores and they are $10.50-$12.50 each for the basic ones. They are about Rs 850 in the Indian Markets.
