Review: OPI Swimsuit…Nailed It! Nail Polish

I know this is my second blog post of the day, but I have literally just finished painting my nails and have never been so excited about a nail product! I’m going to make a confession…until around 20 minutes ago, I had never used an OPI Nail Polish. Seriously. I am proud to announce that this is no longer the case, and that my nails are now beautifully adorned with the OPI Nail Polish in Swimsuit…Nailed It! Taken from the Miss Universe Collection 2011

I had always heard people rave about OPI Nail Polishes but the price always put me off – I didn’t see how much better a polish costing almost Β£10 could be than one costing less thanΒ£5. However, from the moment I started painting my nails, the answer became obvious. This is the best nail polish I’ve ever used!

The colour is the most amazing ocean blue with a gorgeous sparkle – the glitter is more subtle, which gives a gorgeous glossy effect. The application was amazing; the polish looked more than acceptable after just one coat and absolutely wonderful after two. I also loved how quickly it dried – I usually spend forever trying to lift things with my palms to avoid smudging but it wasn’t the case with this polish. I’m in love!

It is quite likely that my bank balance will now suffer as a result of my new obsession, but I literally don’t care! I can’t believe it has taken me this long to try OPI – I’m converted!

I bought this polish from eBay (as it is quite difficult to find OPI stockists in the UK) – the online shop was called hammer-it-style and the polish cost Β£7.99 brand new with no P&P costs!

    Wow, it looks amazing! πŸ˜€ Blue looks gorgeous on your skin tone! I really like OPI’s Linkin Park After Dark, it’s like a black color with purple undertones.
