The OPI Tag
How many OPI polishes do you own and why?
I have 80 OPI polishes which I've been collecting over about 4 years. I bought my first OPI when I was in JFK airport on my way back from New York when I was 17. The polish was Romeo & Joliet which I've actually completely used up but don't have the heart to throw it away! I was hooked immediately and my collection has grown from there. I love the brush, the formulas, the colour range and the names.
I have probably only paid the full price for about 5 of those 80. The rest I've bought at a very cheap price or have received as gifts. The mini sets make the perfect gift if you're not sure what to get someone! The best places to buy cheaper OPI are Fragrance Direct, Ebay, Amazon and keep an eye out on ASOS as they usually reduce the collections after they're been out for a while. I bought a couple of polishes from the Skyfall collection for about £5 each.

I ordered quite a few from the Lena White January sale as they were really cheap and I also had a 20% off discount code on top of that. It was "luxe20" if it still works! A few of them have been on my wish list for months and some just took my fancy when I was browsing the site. Sparrow Me The Drama is one I've wanted ever since the collection came out. I'm only one away from finally having the whole Pirates Of The Caribbean collection after deciding I suddenly wanted them all months after the collection was released.
Do you own any Top Coats or Base Coats?
I don't at the moment. I have used and finished Rapid Dry which I thought was ok but haven't bought another bottle since. I've also tried one of the Nail Envy polishes and really didn't get on with it. For some reason I never think to buy any base or top coats from OPI even though it's my favourite brand for coloured polishes.
Which are your three favorite polishes and why?
DS Extravagence - A holographic pink which just looks amazing and I can never stop looking at my nails when I wear it.
Stranger Tides - A dirty light green which I wear a lot.
My Private Jet - Another holographic polish but this one is a grey brown.
Is there any polish you wanna buy next?
Steady As She Rose is next on my list to buy so I can complete the collection. I also want some more polishes from the Designer Series.
Do you miss any colors or finishes in OPIs range?
No. I think OPI is one of the only brands that offer a full range of colours and finishes. Whatever colour I want I know OPI will have. I would like them to bring out some more suede polishes though.
