In my new-found capacity as a ‘Beauty Blogger‘ …..yeah, right …hohoho ! ….. I have been asked which brand of Nail Polish I favour.
Well, in my humble opinion there are 4 brands that lead the way and are heads above all others. And these are ;
They are the best for innovative Nail Care Products; their fabulous Range of Colours; the Ease of Application and, probably the most important element, Durability of the Polish. And, my absolute favourite from these brands is the marvellous O.P.I.
I find that O.P.I. polishes just glide on …the application brush is thick and luxurious and so it is perfectly possible to use the ‘3-stroke‘ method, just like the professional Nail Salon manicurists…..You know; one stroke at each side of the nail and then one down the middle …….
I always use a base coat, two applications of colour and …..and this is essential …. A TOP COAT …… and find that I can easily get 7 days wear, with no chips or loose edges or colour-fade, often much longer.
I have tried all brands of Nail Polish ….from the really cheap stuff for £2 a bottle to the premium ‘Fashion Designer‘ brands at £16 -£20 a pop ….and with the rare exception of a couple of Dior polishes, I have never found anything better. For me, O.P.I. ticks all the boxes, and, though the usual price of around £12 may be more than you like to pay ….its flipping well worth it. The polish is not only durable on the nail ….. it is long-lasting in the bottle, too. I have some colours that were purchased 4 – 5 years ago ….and they are still absolutely fine……. you can’t say that about the cheaper brands, which seem to go all ‘gloopy‘ in no time at all !
I also love the quirky, rather tongue-in-cheek names that O.P.I. use, though, of course this has nothing to do with anything ….but I’m silly like that.
And my favourite colour ….the one I always return to …..the one that I have purchased many times ….my signature colour ……. ?
Its this …………………
Yes ….. of course its “ I’m Not Really a Waitress ” !!
I must emphasise that this is only my opinion. …… I am not paid to advertise one brand against another and receive no free samples.
