My first OPI purchase was two years ago. I walked into a salon in the mall and saw this nail color that went with the dress i had just bought. There wasn't a sign stating the price, so I just picked up the bottle and went to the counter. Being a very frugal person, I almost had a heart attack when the attendant told me the price was 7.00 a bottle. At the same time not wanting to embarrass myself and return the product to the shelf I decided to go ahead and slurge and buy this really expensive nail polish.
Recommend this product?
When I got it home and used it I could tell the difference between OPI and my other .97 Wal-Mart special. One coat is as durable as two coats of the cheaper brand. I also noticed that it did not stain my fingernails like my old brand. Being in the industry of service where i would use my hands a lot I noticed that this polish held up its end of the bargain by not chipping. With OPI you don't have to use a top coat to prevent chipping because it is durable enough allready.
This polish also comes in a wide array of colors. I have noticed that this polish does not dry out as quickly as its competitors polish. If there is one thing I hate it is to grab a bottle of polish that is half empty and when I start to apply it to my nails, find out that there are a lot of bubbles in it, which means it is drying out. I also hate when you pull the wand out of the bottle and the polish is goouped up on the brissles. I still have that original bottle of OPI from 2 years ago, and i have not seen any goop or bubbles in it yet.
So in short, the big price for this little bottle is worth it in the long haul. I figure one of those .97 cent bottles were only good for a few months whereas I have had OPI for years and it is still good.
