OPI nail polishes are not bad per se, but considering how expensive they are, I really don't think they are worth it. Chips really easily, even with a good base and top coat. They do have an extensive range of colours though.

OPI Nail Lacquer Review
Tips: You can get way better nail polishes for only like $3 – don't waste your money on OPI
I have almost 100 O.P.I Nail polishes - I love the formula for the regular colours (no glitter etc). The range is exciting and impressive, when a new collection comes out the marketing and packaging is well thought out.
The glitters need more layers/build up especially the chunkier versions, also when removing glitters treat it like gel polish and soak your nails for 10 minutes or so and it will come off a lot easier.
My nails are naturally very weak and brittle, so the polish doesn't last long for me, but I love experimenting with new colours/combinations every few days.
My favourite colour: 'Mod about you'.
Tips: ALWAYS apply a base coat! protect your nails!
I have quite a few OPI polishes now and i love every single one. They have a range of gorgeous and unique colours too which is awesome. They never chip so easily, like other polishes tend to do. They aren't opaque either, so you only ever need to apply one or two coats and you're good to go! A little pricey compared to other brands but definitely worth the money!
Back in the day nail polish never would stay on and we have now have the likes of OPI which seam to be a lot more hard wearing and don’t always chip so easy. I think these are great and I have had a number of colours. The range on huge and beautiful with the lovely brights right down to the nudes. Personally they sure don’t beat the technology we have now with sns, gel etc. however they are great for at home nail colouring and I would certainly rate OPI as one of the best that You can get for doing at home.
I always use OPI nail products, they have a good selection of colours, gives good coverage, drys quick and the polish lasts for ages. To avoid chipping I always apply two clear top coats and this would normally last a good week before I change my colour.
In my personal opinion I don’t think O.P.I. is worth what they ask for. You’d expect real quality and durability for the price range.
I have “We Seafood and Eat It” which is a fun name but I don’t really understand it as the colour is a pale red. Maybe I’m missing something. It’s a nice shade in any case and the bottle is a good 15ml so would last a long time.
The problem I have with this nail polish is that it’s so fragile. I always apply a base coat, 2-3 coats of colour (after allowing them all to dry), and then a top coat. Most of the products I have, for example Essie, or even $2 shop nail polishes, last for days, but I’ve found consistently that O.P.I. lasts a few hours before chipping or fading at the edges.
This product was a gift, but I would never purchase.
I found the formula way to thick witch made it hard to apply and chip off way to easily. I'll definitely have to give it a go but after a couple tries I'm not the biggest fan.
Who doesnt love the OPI nail polishes??? They are so great. I have used them many times in many different shades and I find they apply really nice and even. I love that there is such a range of shades, i like the names too. I do find that without a clear top coat the polish does chip after about a day, otherwise it lasts well for about a week. My nails are always nice when i remove it and its never caused any damage.
Tips: Use a top coat to keep it from chipping.
I am a fan of OPI nail polish – I own quite a few bottles. I received the shade You've Got That Glas-glow in a Beauty Box. I love this colour. It is the perfect cool-toned, nude, pinky-greige.
The colour comes in OPI’s standard size 15ml clear glass bottle with the matte black lid. The clear glass allows you to easily see the shade inside the bottle, and the textured lid allows you to grip it easily. I love OPI’s wide, flat brush, it makes polish application so much easier!
I usually wear sparkly, or iridescent, nail polish as I find the formulas dry less streaky than the shiny, opaque ones. But this polish goes on thick enough that it does not look streaky, even with only one coat. It dries quickly too, so another coat can be applied within half an hour for an even more opaque finish. It wears well, only chipping after a couple of days. I recommend this colour if you are looking for a neutral polish shade to wear for work.
The ONLY reason I haven't rated this higher is that I am a Gel Nail Polish girl. This is the best normal nail polish I have ever used. It goes on smoothly and easily. Drys pretty quickly, only needs 2 coats and doesn't chip too quickly. If I didn't own my own cure lamp and a massive box full of gel polish and accessories, I would convert to OPI in a heartbeat.
