OPI

OPI began as a dental supply company which was purchased by George Schaeffer in 1981. After partnering with Suzi Weiss-Fischmann and R. Eric Montgomery (Artistic Director and Biochemist, respectively) they created an acrylic color system and began selling to nail salons individually. In 1989 they expanded to nail laquers and other products, and in 2010 OPI was aquired by Coty Inc. They are currently headquartered in North Hollywood, CA.

Nail Lacquer - Hurry-juku Get This Color
3.0
Created with Sketch.

13 days ago

Hurry-juku Get This Color was released as part of OPI’s 2019 Tokyo collection. It is a fairly bright, berry coloured creme polish. It reminds me somewhat of an older OPI from the Hong Kong collection named Dim Sum Plum. I loved that old shade so was happy to be reminded of it! I believe the colour would suit many skin tones and is also suitable for all year round. It also makes a beautiful pedi Ute shade. The formula is easy to work with, fully opaque in two coats and easy to work with. It also dries quickly and to a shiny finish. However, this colour only wore for 24 hours before chipping, when paired with base and top coat. Usually I can get around 5 days wear from OPI’s paired with base and top coat, so the wear time is very disappointing and the reason for the low rating. The colour is pretty but the wear time leaves a lot to be desired.

Nail Lacquer - All Your Dreams in Vending Machines

All Your Dreams In Vending Machines was released as part of OPI’s 2019 Tokyo collection. This shade is a bright fuschia with iridescent shimmer which flashes purple and blue in the light. It gives the polish that bright ‘lit from within’ look. The formula is great, opaque in two coats and applies well. It wears for around 5 days when paired with base and top coat (standard for me with OPI polish). This is a great colour for summer. I believe it would suit all skin tones. It is bright without being too ‘much’. And it makes for a beautiful pedi. I am very happy with this colour!

Nail Lacquer - Another Ramen-tic Evening

Another Ramen-tic Evening was released as part of OPI’s Tokyo Collection in 2019 and it is one of my favourite shades from the collection. It is a lovely creme polish in a shade of baby pink with a slight mauve undertone. It’s a very understated and classy look, but girly and pretty too. It makes for a lovely mani or pedi. The formula is great, no streaking or running and it is easy to work with. It dries quickly and to a shiny finish, and when paired with base and top coat wore well for 6 days (so slightly longer than my typical wear time from OPI). I believe this shade would suit every skin tone. It looks nice on short nails as well. I really enjoy this shade and would happily recommend it.
