I have a couple of these polishes and all of them are streaky to apply and need at least two coats if not more. I recently bought the shade "got myself into jambalaya" (I love the names!) which is a bright coral peach colour. Its so summery and bright but was so thin it took three coats to look even - which is far too much maintenance for me! For their price point they really should glide on streak free...

It's an ok polish. I had 3 of these. I have found the worst is the darker colours especially dark purple. I don't know why but after a day it will chip and if not careful will crease. If I use a good top coat then it will last 3 days. Not the easiest to apply. 1st coat looks Great, 2nd coat not as good. There are better polishes out there.

Fabulous range of colours and shades to try. Good coverage and easy to apply. No streaking or gloop.Dries well with a nice shine without being brash. Love the neutral shades so I can wear them to work subtle but make my nails look groomed and attractive. Staying power for up to a week through housework and typing. A favourite and always try out new shades a favourite of mine

Unfortunately not happy with it :( I bought a beautiful plum shade, and was so excited to try. Upon my first application I noticed it was very runny, and needed a good few coats for the colour to be even. Then even with top coat it started chipping really quickly! Not sure if it's just that particular shade or the brand in general but I was disappointed.

I absolutely love this nail lacquer, It has a huge range of colours so there's something for all tastes.
I have very shakey hands due to my meds and i can get great results using this nail polish.
The wide brush makes application so much easier and quicker with just 3 strokes. These are fast drying and super pigmented so its always best to apply a base coat first to avoid staining on the nail. Just 2 coats for a opaque finish, some shades only need one coat.
These are long-lasting and look great too. Also the gift sets with minis are cute too. Even better when you can get them around £3

I love the opi nail varnishes they are such great quality and the colours come out like they look in the jar. This is an amazing colour and lasts ages just put a gel coat over the top and it stays on for over two to three weeks.

One of the best lacquers I have in my collection. The colours are endless and the last on the finish is smooth and sleek. They do take a while to dry and can easily smudge, but apart from that they have a high status In my lacquer stacks.

Not sure if I had a faulty bottle or what but will not buy anymore. Colours are really lovely but they don't last long on nails. They chip next day in the most horrible way. They just flake, break off. Not a fan.

Would give 10 * if i could. Provided you apply this the way it was intended ( base coat, 2 coats of colour and top coat) this polish will last and last. I love the diversity of colour and textures and feel like they are worth the money. I have a huge collection as does my mum. They are self levelling which is good if you have ridges and i love the brush you can easily do a nail in 3 strokes

It gives an amazing colour with a couple of coats, looks brilliant. However it chips really easily and doesn't last long at all which is very disappointing because it feels like such little value for money but it really is one that looks good to start with at least

Use this all the time, the colours are gorgeous and really do stand out after the 2nd coat. They are pricey depending wear you but them and do chip easily but they are the right consistency and makes nails look amazing
