I have around probably 4 dozen OPI polishes and they were my go-to brand for many years. OPI polishes have a wide shade range, fun collections with a theme yet offer variety, and have a formula that wears well. I have brittle nails that are prone to bending and breaking and I can go about 4-5 days with OPI polishes before they start to chip. Essie and China Glaze usually start chipping around day 3 and Marc Jacobs can last about 6 days. This OPI line is fairly typical in formula for a non-gel polish and they switched to a paddle brush in the last 5 years or so. The shades vary in opacity but most shades will be opaque at 3 coats, which is typical for non gel polishes. The polishes seem to be more resistant to thickening over time than other brands which is nice, however, they are prone to having their caps stuck shut by dried polish on the bottle rim. OPI is a really reliable brand that is accessible in stores and is reasonably priced, if not a bit on the expensive side. If I am looking for a particular polish shade I will start with looking in OPI's collection because of how broad their shade range is and how many finishes they are available in. I have slowly been switching over to gel polishes because they last longer and look better but I won't be getting rid of any of my OPIs either. I haven't tried their Infinite Shine line but I hope to soon. If I were to recommend a nail polish brand to someone it would be OPI. The only main gripe I have with the brand is that they discontinued my favorite polish- Vodka and Caviar. I have been looking for a replacement for years but no other brand can nail the jelly finish like OPI. It is also a bit of a downside that because they have so many limited edition collections you are likely to find a fave that you'll never be able to replace

Review for: OPI…EURSO EURO more...
I am going to start by saying that most nail polishes do not last on my nails for longer than 2-3 days. That is because I have really oily nails and for some reason my nails always chip really quickly.

To me, this is one of the best nail polish formulas. They stay on for about a week and are so shiny. I swear by these nail polishes! However, I have noted a few issues I would like to discuss.

To begin, I have used OPI and Essie and both are good. However, one thing I have found about OPI is different colors have different formulas. Say I used a red color, then I used a pink color, the formula could be completely different. I like these, don't get me wrong, but I feel like they could be more consistent. 

Another thing is OPI compared to other polishes. I have found OPI is just as good as Essie. However, I have found Essie polishes are a bit more expensive than OPI. OPI is also as good, or better, than high end nail polishes(sold at Sephora). 

Overall, I believe this product is nice. However, if they fix a few of the problems, they will be even better! I feel like the price is great for the amount you are paying. I truly recommend this product:)

I have so many of these OPI nail Lacquers. They are beyond easy to apply and have beautiful color to them. The pros of this product is the colors are amazing and look just like they bottles, unlike other nail polishes it actually lasts on the nail itself. I really like the way it shines in the light along with how smooth it goes on. I have found that these nail polishes don't really lose their shine and will last over a week and a half. The colors don't really dry out as easy. they are very affordable and elegant! I would say that when you find a color you like you better hurry and stock up on it because a lot of the colors are a limited edition type thing and you wont be able to get it again. that is my only con on the product. I would highly recommend trying this product to anyone and everyone! they really make your hands look amazing!!!

Honestly I cannot remember all the OPI shades I own in my collection lol. I really appreciate their medium size brush since I have large nails. On my nails, they last for about 7-8 days. I first apply a sticky base coat then 2 coats of nail polish and finally a quick-dry top coat. There are a few other brands that have a similar brush size but OPI is the most comforting for me. This is a nostalgic brand with fun, current, and timeless shade creations. I've repeated so many of their shades throughout the years. I'm not surprised why they're so popular. Usually I purchase these goodies online through either Target or Ulta.

Review for: # NL T02 Black Onyx, LINCOLN PARK AFTER DARK, MUIR MUIR ON THE WALL, BLACK ONYX, LINCOLN PARK AFTER MIDNIGHT more...
OPI Nail Laquer is my very favorite nail polish. The colors are amazing & it lasts for weeks! I can put this polish on my toe nails and it stays perfect. I take it off when my nails grow out making it look ratchet. 😂 Otherwise the polish itself stays beautiful. This is the best nail polish out there as far as I'm concerned. It doesnt bother me that it costs more than other nail polishes, I buy it because of the quality & staying power. It also doesnt seem to dry up like a lot of other nail polishes. I have bottles that I have had for 3 or 4 years that still go on perfectly. No other brand can compete with OPI.

I am in love with this brand! I love how majority of their nail polishes stay on for days!  I love how they have a huge collection of colors to choose from, it's amazing.  I also love the special edition collections that they do.  I remember being obsessed with the Katy Perry collection as well as the Alice in Wonderland collection and the Never Say Never collection!
I did remove a star because some specific colors will literally start to chip the next day.  It's usually the lighter colors too, which are my favorite.

Review for: GOT THE BLUES FOR RED more...
This has to be my favorite red nail polish ever, and although I literally have a nail salon rack of nail polish mounted in my bathroom (and full of a lot of polish), I have used at least 3 tubes of this one in the last few years, which is a lot given how many colors I own. Reds are hard because you can see when they chip, which is why this one is such a winner, you can go 3 days without a chip if you arent washing dishes, and the color is just a flawless red that looks dark but not so dark that you cant tell. perfect for any outfit and any skin tone. Really recommend!

Long lasting, no-clumps, easily spreadable standard nail polish I keep repurchasing. The applicator wand on this one is amazing: hard but at the same time soft enough that it spreads out evenly and has great reach. I usually just have to do two passes per finger to get all the spots. I love all of the nude colors. These are usually my standard day to day while the reds are great on my toes. They are on the pricier side but I think that considering they are long-lasting the up-charge is worth it.

While I have not had issues in the past with OPI I have run aground as of recently. I came across their Grease release for the 40th anniversary of the movie and was very excited. I love the movie, I had loved OPI, and I love nail polish so I thought it was a huge win. I was very wrong, in all honesty. The saturation of color left something to be desired. The consistency of the polish was very sticky and did not dry evenly, or even at all in some places. I never had the chance to let it dry completely as I sat there for about 45 minutes, which left me with polish slipping off of my nails and not even being somewhat dry on the top.

I gave OPI three stars because I did like their other products. Their other polishes have been great to me in the past so this really just frustrated me even more. I don't know if I got a bad batch or if they were somehow old. All I can say is that, as of late, I have not been impressed with their quality.
