I recently ran a loop giveaway on Instagram where I asked participants which brand of nail polish was their favorite. The overwhelming response was OPI! I was intrigued since I had never actually tried OPI. So I decided to check out OPI and see why it seems to be the overwhelming favorite!
I have always wanted to test out a glittering top coat. Since I purchased a few bottles of OPI before the New Year, OPI Glitter Nail Lacquer in So Elegant seemed timely and appropriate for the occasion. I was right! OPI Glitter Nail Lacquer in So Elegant was a sparkling and festive top coat nail polish. I loved how it looked over the light metallic hue of Chanel Paradisio. It seemed to be the perfect, and “So Elegant” contrast that the sparkling top coat needed to shine.
It was fun wearing OPI Glitter Nail Lacquer in So Elegant for about one week and I was thrilled that it did not chip at all! Alas, after the New Year, it was time to change to a more subdue color so I took off OPI Glitter Nail Lacquer in So Elegant. This nail polish was so strong, that it took four cotton squares and a LOT of nail polish remover to take it off my nails. I give OPI Glitter Nail Lacquer in So Elegant props for being chip-free, strong and long lasting, my only complaint was that it was a lot of work to remove it. In OPI’s defense, this may have been due to the fact that it is difficult to get nail polish remover around and under the big chunks of glitter found in OPI Glitter Nail Lacquer in So Elegant.
I am looking forward to using OPI Glitter Nail Lacquer in So Elegant again whenever I need festive nails for an event or party. It should be fun to layer over pastels and brighter colors as the year heads into summer.
OPI Glitter Nail Lacquer in So Elegant is part of OPI’s “Sheer to the Top!” top coat collection which can be found exclusively online here. I am looking forward to testing out the regular top coat in the collection as well as the matte top coat.
