If you’re going to get anything from this collection, get “Made It To The Seventh Hill,” a beautiful true rose gold color. All of my other shades that claim to be a rose gold are actually more of a muted gold, while this one actually has that gentle pink hue in the sunlight. You’d have to see it to believe it. The formula is also really smooth. The only thing that I dislike about this polish is that after three coats it’s still a little bit light in some spots, but four evens it out. It’s nicely metallic and does best with a top coat.

Review for: MIMOSAS FOR MR. & MRS. more...
I don't know if I just got a bottle from a bad batch or if this shade's specific formula isn't up to par, but I can not put this on for more than a few hours without it peeling off. I never have this problem with other OPI shades I own, just Mimosas for Mr. & Mrs. It's the weirdest thing, the polish peels off in sheets like a Jamberry wrap. I have tried several light coats, one heavy coat, with base coat and without, all with the same result. Very disappointed because I love this pale pink shade!

Review for: YOU’RE SUCH A BUDAPEST more...
OPI You're Such a Budapest from the Euro Centrale Collection for Spring and Summer 2013. OPI describes You’re Such a Budapest as a periwinkle purple which I think is quite accurate.

The consistency of all the polishes are nice and thin, easy to manipulate, BUT... the same issue I have with product is the I have with the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish-The OPI Pro Wide brush is flat, wide and medium in length. It easily spreads out on the nail when pressed. That’s the only Con I have which makes a huge difference when shopping for a polish.

Review for: THAT'S BERRY DARING more...
This is a generic review for all OPI nail polishes. I do like the colors that they come out with and the names are beyond cute. I find it even helps me remember what I own and what I don’t. You know, when you find a shade named red 115 that you love and you bring it home to find that you have five of them all ready? Well the names help with that. I am really rough on my nails so in terms of chipping... yes it does. But it probably gives me an extra day before it does. The polishes are smooth to apply and give excellent coverage with two coats. Recommend.

Review for: PINK FLAMENCO more...
Let me start off by saying that I'm not the biggest fan of a lot of drugstore nail polish lines, especially the higher priced lines. I prefer to spend my money and support indie polish companies, the quality and variety is higher and the price is usually comparable or just a bit higher than higher priced drugstore brands like OPI. I find OPI and other drugstore polishes to be very hit or miss and I typically only pick them up if I find them on clearance. I do like this pink polish just fine. The formula is easy to work with, it fully covers the nail line with two coats. I find that it looks like my nails are just colored pink rather than painted with polish, it's just so flat, even with my go to trusted top coat. Speaking of top coat, I use the same kind every times I paint my nails, it always works with the indie polishes I own but I find this OPI polish, along with most others, chip within one day. That's just ridiculous for a polish at this price point when my indies last for days and days before I see any wear. I can't really recommend this polish for those reasons.

I have the OPI Nail Lacquer in Bubble Bath.

This brand of nail polish is my overall favorite when I am choosing a color at the nail salon and it’s also a drugstore favorite. I love how these polish are long lasting, no chip, and fast drying when I get my nails done. I feel the nail polishes are always very pigmented, even when it comes to the light color. The one I have is a really good light everyday bubble gum pink. I would recommend using this product whenever your choosing a color from the nail salon. I also believe because these polish are more in the high end side, they don’t damage your natural nails. I noticed that using cheaper drugstore nail polishes or small brand polishes, they have some type of chemical that’s harmful to your nails. Overtime your nails will become a dirty yellow color from those polishes and possibly weaker, which this polish does not do to you.

Opi is my favorite nail polish brand. When it come to quality and kind of home manicure you will never go wrong with Opi. They have beautiful color range. They last long and dry quickly on hands. I have several shades and sometime it is like I picked same color not even realized that I already own it.Cost is also not high when you want quality we can spent little extra bucks.

Review for: LIVE.LOVE.CARNAVAL more...
Nail polish is not something you mess around with, if you take the time to do your nails you should take the time to get the polish and that’s exactly why I buy OPI. Anytime I use the coat of OPI nail polish my nails come out shiny and beautiful, it takes forever for them to actually chip and I get such a nice wear out of the polish. They always have such a wonderful selection of colors to choose from and the names are so catchy! I adore it!!!

Review for: THE THRILL OF BRAZIL more...
I purchased this solely because my autistic niece wanted me to wear a red-orange nail polish and none of the reds I owned were a true red-orange. So when I stumbled across Thrill Of Brazil I had to grab it. She was very pleased that I wore a color she had requested. Beautiful true red-orange nail polish. The formula on Thrill of Brazil is great. You get a fully opaque nail in one coat and two coats doesn’t change the color at all, which I appreciate. I lov OPI and I think they are by far one of the best nail products on the market. They wear very well and very rarely is the formula difficult when working with the large bottles. They are a bit pricey but close enough to other brands to stay competitive. OPI Nail Lacquer

Review for: CORRECTAMUNDO more...
In the end you're either a polish gal or a lacquer gal. Nail polish is a varnish to make them shiny (think Essie) and nail lacquer is a solution and is thicker in comparison. OPI is the latter. So if you love the languid feel of the gliding brush, OPI is for you. But beware- lacquer takes longer to dry. Give it an hour before you play hard and a good 4 hours to solidify, or horrors- the dreaded sheet marks. They have the market cornered with their inimitable range of colors and idiosyncratic names (personal fave: Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine!) and continue to impress with their technology. High end salons use it for a reason. OPI is the undisputed Grande Dame of polishes.
