I cannot afford salon nails any longer. I had them for 10 years. My natural nails are a mess because of chemical assault and the drilling off SNS Stystem (advertised as a natural alternative to and acrylics.. My natural nails are as thin as paper and have been this way over a 9 month time span, without improvement. I was a die hard once every fortnight, getting my nails done. I had to give up the glamour, diamond shine and hard wearing gels. I never was into the hot UV curing, being told to stay out of the sun all my life. I took to wearing sunblock before I went into a salon to counteract the effect. They look great, but at what cost? Now they are extra short. Some with ridges and split vertically. I also got a fungal infection from where my big toenail fell off and slowly disintegrated. I have gone back to nail polish. It could be because of where I live. Unless i want to resort to Lolly Pink, there isn't 1 decent Ballerina Pink or Nude/Pink shade in stock. I wont go fluoro either. I want a wearable shade and I have come to rely on Bubble Bath as my go to subtle shade of pink. Thank You. It wears well and seeing as there is no other option, long-term, I will be sticking with that my Bubble Bath colour.
Non avevo ancora provato gli smalti OPI anche se ne avevo sempre sentito parlare. Devo dire che mi è piaciuto molto. Il colore è uniforme e si stende senza difficoltà, perché il pennellino non è troppo grande. Con due passate rimane tutto omogeneo. Per la durata, io sono solita mettere prima la base ed alla fine il top coat, in questo modo gli smalti mi durano 5-6 giorni. Anche questo come gli altri di marca che ho, con degli accorgimenti resiste. Per quanto riguarda la tonalità, non è propriamente un nude trasparente ma è un beige scuro coprente che tende poco al rosato (quindi se cercate effetto gel che lasci intravedere l’unghia sotto, non va bene).
Love the colour and I am generally happy with OPI products but this one disappointed. Goes on nicely but after one week, the top coat or second coat of colour peeled off leaving the first coat underneath. On another nail, the entire 2 layers of polish peeled off the nail completely- even though I used the base coat first to ensure adhesion. Thought that maybe I had ordered a non-gel nail polish by mistake, but not the case.
Application is super splotchy + streaky and requires 3 coats (you lose the natural sheer look after 2 coats). Gave it three chances and waited hours between coats but the second + third coats continue to apply unevenly and it does not look cute at all ugh :-(. As for longevity, it did not last one full day... I don’t have this problem with other polishes and am disappointed with this one. It wasn’t cheap either! Not worth.
Love the color with a little sparkle. Question is, does it stay on longer which Infinite Shine Basecoat or can you use OPI Nail Envy instead?... because I absolutely have to use it so my nails do not split.
