As one of the most popular brands in the industry, it should be no surprise that OPI ended up at the top of our list. With an extensive range of colors/textures and a superior formula that will last for nearly a week without chipping, OPI is the go-to brand for nail polish.
Some users report quality control issues with certain bottles of polish being incredibly thick and clumpy. And even if you do get a good bottle, use it up fast because this polish dries up quickly.
Specs: OPI is one of the most sought after brands in the industry. The width of the square brush makes for a smooth and easy application--the darks go on evenly and the sheers don’t streak. Additionally, the OPI formula dries quickly and is created to be formaldehyde-free, which is always a good thing.
Shade Range: Available in more than 200 shades, there’s an OPI color for everyone! OPI is known for their elegant classics as well as deep, cool shades--perfect for fall and winter. Lincoln Park after Dark is for sure one of our personal faves, but users also have a lot of love for Hot & Spicy, Midnight in Moscow, and Pale to the Chief. Also, if you're looking for something to help strengthen and grow your nails, OPI's Nail Envy Nail Strengthener provides maximum strengthening with hydrolyzed wheat protein and calcium for harder, stronger, natural nails in as little as three weeks.
Staying Power: OPI’s heavily-pigmented Nail Lacquers are long-lasting and chip-resistant, with remarkable staying power providing up to seven days of wear time.
Price: At $10.50 per polish, OPI is definitely in the mid-range of polishes on our list. Although not the cheapest, just over $10 per polish sure beats what you would shell out for that weekly manicure.
