Its Sheer Luck!

I love OPI's nail polishes.  From all the times that I've used the products, they have been great!  Though I have only aquired a few of the nail polishes, so far so good. OPI has not failed me yet!  I do expect to get some more in the near future as they have tons of awesome collections coming out!

Product Review:

O.P.I  "It's Sheer LUCK!"


This is a nude color nail polish, with subtle hint of shimmer and mauve undertones.  Very nice color that you can build with multiple layers for a heavier feel.

Pros:
~Awesome nude color
~When layered correctly, the payoff is amazing
~Lasts a long time, little chipping
~Wearable color, anyone can pull it off

Cons:
~Takes more than 3 coats to get good color
~Can be streaky
~Does not have pro-wide brush (for the one I have in particular)
~Pricey at around $8 average for a bottle.

Overall, OPI is an awesome nail polish brand. Well known worldwide and used by many many people.  With a good base and top coat, I can tell that chipping is kept at minimal which we all love, right Girls? I love using my hands and working in house and at work, I like minimal chipping.  The only problem I had with this particular color was the payoff.  It was a little more runnier than usual, and I had to apply more than 3 coats to get a good color, if I would have left it at one coat, my nails would not have been pretty.  After a few coats, the color was amazing, I actually really liked it.

Tip:  
             ~Always remember to use base and top coats to keep nail polishes from chipping!
             ~Wait for the previous coat to dry well before adding the next coat. This will give the next
                application a better surface to adhere to and will look more polished.


There are many places you can find OPI nail polishes, whether it be online retailers, the mall, or your favorite nail salon.  OPI provides plenty of colors for everyone, so you should be able to find one you like.

I love OPI nail polish. But I have to agree it is a bit pricey. Some times you can find deals though!

Bummer that you had to use three coats. I'm always too lazy to do more after two. When I first saw the picture I thought "WOW?! IS THAT ONE COAT?!" then was disappointed when I read three. Although, I do like the color.
