Just a quick little post today to show my appreciation of these O.P.I varnishes. I picked them up a few months back whilst I was browsing around TK Maxx. They had them in a double pack for £9.99 which I thought was bargainous as I'd wanted to try O.P.I for ages but could never really justify the price tag, so I snapped them up when I saw them. They usually have the odd one or two packs floating around my local TK Maxx but these are the only shades I've ever seen that have appealed to me.
Formula wise, these apply like a dream and I applied two coats of Mediterranean Moonlight for a fully opaque finish and then one light coat of Pros & Bronze on my ring finger just for a touch of sparkle. The glitter is smooth to the touch unlike some of the cheaper brands and the drying time is more than reasonable, I left them about 5 minutes whilst painting my other hand and moved on to the second coat almost immediately. I finished off with a top coat of Sally Hansens's Insta-Dri Anti-Chip and this usually ensures my nails are chip free for around about 5 days. Alone, the varnishes tend to last around about 4 days before I notice a chip, so not much difference!
You can find Mediterranean Moonlight for £4.95 and Pros & Bronze £8.99 on Amazon Beauty which are pretty reasonable prices!
What do you think of these shades/combo? Do you have any O.P.I polishes or want to try them?
