We all know i love OPI, my Instagram is a testament to how much time i spend painting my nails. So when the OPI sale rolls around, i get very excited, at £7 a bottle the standard OPI polishes are a bargain, usually retailing at £11.95 !! Here are my top picks from polishes i already own, and are trust worthy favourites.

OPI I don’t give a Rotterdam

I don’t give a rotterdam – a beautiful dusty blue steel with silver flecks. The cooler cousin of ‘I Have a Herring problem’ But still a good summer favourite for those who want something outside of the good old bright blue creme polish!

OPI Lincoln Park At Midnight

Lincoln Park At Midnight – This is a big time favourite for nail fanatics and bloggers world wide. Its a blackened red, leaning purple that comes to life in sunlight. Totally my all time favourite vampy nails, and a wonderful base for glitters!

OPI What Wizardry Is This?

What Wizardry Is This? this is possibly my favourite of all the liquid sands I own. And its best served not left as a matte glitter, but with several coats of a super glossy top coat and left to look like you dipped your hands in fools gold dust and it stuck!

Screen Shot 2014-03-25 at 17.53.18 OPI I Have A Herring Problem – Is this not the BEST polish name you’ve ever heard? It still makes my husband giggle! Warmer sister of I Don’t Give A Rotterdam. It speaks for itself, darker steel blue with gold and silver flecks.

OPI – Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous

Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous – Did i tell you this was my first ever OPI polish? It was bought for me by a boyfriend in John Lewis and it was amazing! It hails from the Swiss collection of 2010. Its a lot darker than this picture looks, Its a dark smokey grey shimmer, in my opinion. I love it. Perfect for breaking up a black dress and shoes combo, but sparkly enough to keep me staring at it!

OPI Magazine Cover Mouse

OPI Magazine Cover Mouse

Screen Shot 2014-03-25 at 18.06.38 Magazine Cover Mouse – this is my final pick, a strawberry red liquid sand, with some shimmer another beauty with or without top coat, i prefer this one without, but thats preference! Liquid sands do tend to have a good wear time on me, and i often use them to cover up a nicked manicure after a few days if i don’t have time to remove and repaint! Just think of them as manicure extending gods! Those are my picks! Other polishes of note are – – Glitzerland – Unfor-greta-bly Blue – Yodel me on my cell What are your must have OPI Picks?
