OPI // Brights And Shatter Top Coats


It's been a gorgeous summer day in London today, what have you guys been up to in the sun? I thought I'd quickly share some OPI nail polishes my mum picked up from her work - one of her friends was selling a bunch of them for a fiver each?! So naturally she bought four - little bit naughty but they are OPI :)

She chose two bright summery colours and two shatter top coats. I'm absolutely in love with the bright orange one! I'm not normally a fan of orange I seem to be a little bit obsessed with it lately - must be the weather..

Up until now, I was an OPI virgin because for me they're pretty expensive and I probably wouldn't get that much use out of them. That being said it really is obvious why they're a little more pricey, because when it comes to quality they are amazing. All of them only needed one coat and they dried within a few minutes to give a perfect glossy finish. They really don't chip very much at all, even without a topcoat - I managed a week without any major damage which is pretty impressive! The shatter coats also work really well, just one coat over your favourite colour and you're done - I love watching them crack to bits ;) 




Conquistadorable Color - NL E51

A Good Man-darin Is Hard To Find - NL H47
ha ha loving the names ;)



Silver Shatter - NL E62

Turquoise Shatter - NL E64 

Overall, I'm really loving these polishes and I'm definitely going to be getting a lot of use out of them! I would highly recommend 'A Good Man-darin Is Hard To Find' to anyone searching for that perfect coraly orange summer shade. If you're not too keen on paying full price for them, check out your local TK Maxx as I often see discounted OPI sets there too!
