When I first spotted the Gwen Stafani OPI Collection, the shade I was most instantly attracted to was Over & Over A Gwen. It is the classic Gwen red – after all, Gwen‘s blonde hair, red lips and red nails are her trademarks! I don’t actually own many red polishes, so was super excited when OPI very kindly sent me this beauty to try out!
Now you may have noticed something different already – the amazing thing about this shade of Over & Over A Gwen is that it comes with a set of Swarovski Studs and Crystals! I haven’t actually used any of them for this review – just the polish – but I hope to do a proper look with them soon!
Let’s take a closer look…
How amazing is this red shade?! I think it is actually my perfect red, which is saying something! I could tell even from the bottle that the finish of the polish was going to be beautifully shiny, and I couldn’t wait to pop it on my nails. I opened up the box a little further, and the gorgeous studs and gems fell out – here they are!
I’m already excited for creating some awesome looks with the embellishments! However, let’s focus on the nail polish for now. I applied my usual OPI Nail Envy as a base and then used Over & Over A Gwen on top. After just the first coat, it looks totally opaque! I’m not kidding – I even wondered whether to add a second coat, as it didn’t look like it was needed. I did a second coat in the end, but I was seriously impressed with the quality!
WOW! I was simply stunned at the result. I can’t believe that the polish looked even more amazing on the nails than in the bottle! I’ve been wearing it for around 3 days and a few chips have started to show, but it has lasted well as far as I’m concerned. I’d love to know what you think!
The regular bottle of OPI Over & Over A Gwen plus the studs and crystals costs £14.95. It is obviously pricey for a polish, but when it quality is this amazing and you get the added embellishments I’d definitely pay it.
A big thanks to OPI for sending me Over & Over A Gwen!
