O.P.I Nail Varnishes

I recently bought three new O.P.I nail varnishes. Look Fantastic were offering 17% off all orders so I thought I'd invest in some new nail varnishes. The O.P.I nail varnishes that I bought were 'Planks A Lot', 'What's With The Cattitude?' and 'Sparrow Me The Drama'.

Here are the nail varnishes themselves...

"Aye, we believe this OPI Planks A Lot Nail Lacquer is worth walking the plank for. A divine purple shade, you’ll dive into style each time you don this fabulous tone. Fingers crossed there be no sharks lurking below…"

Here's What's With The Cattitude?...

"Conquer dragons, rescue princesses (or princes), or just relax in your favourite mud bath. OPI What’s With The Cattitude? Nail Lacquer, a moody light blue that’s really a pussycat, is sure to send you ogre-the-top…!"

Here's Sparrow Me The Drama...

"Shiver me timbers, this OPI Sparrow Me The Drama Nail Lacquer means business. Avast, you’ll be swashbucklingly stylish in this hot pink hue, but beware – they’ll be a whole host of lily-livered pirates ready to fight ye for it!"

Final thoughts
I adore these nail varnishes, in terms of the colours and the quality. I think that these colours would be lovely for summer and they are also fab colours to use as a base for nail art. What's With The Cattitude? would make a perfect 'sky' colour, I wish I'd have used this when creating my bee trail nails! 

The quality of the nail varnishes is exceptional. They are so opaque, probably the most opaque nail varnishes that I've ever used. I did use 2 coats when swatching each of the nail varnishes but I could have easily gotten away with only doing one coat. The only reason I used 2 coats is to see if there was a huge difference between 1 and 2 coats and I can safely say that there's not much difference at all. 

The nail varnishes are incredibly shiny, so shiny that there's no need to apply top coat! O.P.I do sell a fast drying top coat but I really do not think it's necessary. I'd only recommend buying the top coat if you're doing a french manicure or applying O.P.I glitter nail varnish, I find that top coat helps O.P.I glitter nail varnishes look a lot more sparkly!

O.P.I nail varnishes dry super quick, I'm actually amazed that it only took 15 minutes for my nails to dry. When using other branded nail varnishes I usually sit there for hours on end waiting for my nails to dry, this makes Cole a very unhappy Cole. 

I really would recommend O.P.I nail varnishes to absolutely anybody! They may be pricey but they are 100% worth the price tag! 

Hope you've liked this post!
