Last Thursday my friend and I got together to watch Germany's Next Topmodel and to paint our nails. When rummaging through her nail polish collection I saw a bottle of OPI which I just had to try. I had never been able to test any OPI nail polish and also I really liked the reddish neon orange colour so my friend was kind enough to borrow me the bottle. On Thursday I immediately applied it to all my nails but then I saw one of the models from the show having a photo shoot with white nails plus an orange accent nail. I thought it looked super cool so I changed my manicure into an accent manicure yesterday. Also I couldn't resist looking through my own nail polish collection to see whether I have a similar orange or not and I indeed found one!
What I used:
OPI A Roll In The Hague
Essie 1 Blanc
Now what is my opinion about the OPI nail polish? First of all I liked the texture which is really easy to apply even if OPI doesn't have a rounded brush (or did't have one back when my friend bought the nail polish). However I had the feeling that OPI doesn't dry as quickly as Essie, maybe some of you can confirm or disprove this feeling of mine?
What do you think of the OPI colour and of the orange I still had at home? The OPI is in fact more reddish and neon like than the pictures could make you think and thus an even cooler colour (plain orange isn't my thing at all!). If you are an OPI beginner just as I am or simply want a new shade for your collection I can highly recommend the OPI app featuring all the available colours arranged by collections, which is pretty cool. And now I would love to know which OPI shades do you already have?
