Sephora by OPI Classic &Bright 15-piece Nail Collection
I love OPI nail polish and this is a wonderful set. My daughter and I can share because there are so many wonderful colors to choose from.
Looks good a long time
As suggested, I used an udercoat (Lorie Grienier), apply 2 coats of color, and a clear top coat. I used the "Looks like rain dear " during the Christmas holiday. It lasted more than 2 weeks; then, when I got ready to change colors, it was the most difficult polish to remove that I have ever used. It must have been the glitter in the polish. Since then I haven't tried any of the other glitters, but the regular colors are fine. Sample Sale is a lovely red as is Cherry on top. I like that the polish is quick drying. I thought it was a great value on TSV.
What a disappointment!
I love OPI nail colors, so I was excited to purchase this collection of colors from Sephora by OPI.
What a complete disappointment. While the colors are beautiful, the Sephora by OPI polish is NOTHING like the original OPI polish. First of all, the ingredients are horrible--this one is NOT "three free" like OPI. It contains ingredients most brands have phased out due to possible adverse health effects.
Secondly, the quality is terrible. I always use a base coat, two light coats, and a top coat for my nails. With the traditional OPI polish, I can get about 3-4 days. This polish chips within 24 hours.
I am so disappointed in the quality of this collection and I cannot believe OPI would want its name associated with these nail polishes!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
I just loved all of these mini bottles and of coarse have some favorites. I see there is a new set of four polishes with Mermaid to Order which I have already purchased. Now I would REALLY love to be able to purchase Sample Sale, QVC What I Mean, and Just a Little Dangerous in the full sizes. Could the powers that be look into the possibility of this happening? Thanks. PA grandma
The colors are beautiful,with that being said the paint chips very easily.the color starts chipping off the next day.
Got this as a gift for a friend and she loved it. Even her kids love them! Good buy!
Many Colors and great value
I purchased 2 of these kits. I kept one for myself and gave away the other colors to my coworkers. My coworkers enjoyed being able to choose a color from the 3 boxes as small gift from me. I love that there is a variety of colors to choose from: neutrals to bold colors.
Great Way to Sample New Colors
Received this as a Christmas gift and would definitely say there are some colors included that I would not normally ever purchase. But what the heck...these are great sample sizes to try out and OPI polish is one of my favorites in terms of how smoothly it goes on and how good it looks. I do find that with the darker colors, it is best to apply a base coat, two coats of polish, and then a top coat. I also reapply one coat of color 2 days later and seal it again with another top coat. The manicure will last 10 days easily if you do this. Now I'm hoping that Sephora will come out with a spring or summer collection like this so I can have more fun with some new lighter colors for the warm days ahead!
GREAT PRODUCT, but can't use most colors : (
I bought a few of these for the holidays. At 40yo, despite the fact that i am a Manhattanite, I can't wear most of the colors. I feeel as if I am trying to look like a 25yo while I am not. (I feel like I am sometimes!) ANyway, I even gave a set to a friend forthe holidays along with a scarf, and she insultedme by saying my daughter (who is 5yo) loves the manicures she already has had thanks to my polishes I sent. I sent them to her....not herchild. There was no mnetion of her 5yo on the gift. Then she said....how did you know my daughter's favorite nailpolish colors? I didn;thave the nerve to say...I bought one set for me, and one set for you. (I am 40 and she is 38). I couldn;t even telll her the truth , but I was hurt. The crazy thing is thatI sent her daughter a SEPARATE package of toys for her gift. The nail poishwas amongst the adult woman;s gift package. This confirms mythought that maybe the colors are too bright and young for me. LASTLY, I split up another box (box #3) into 3 separate gifts. The top set of colors (other than the beautiful pale pink) is a set that I could never wear, and nobody wanted. I gave an older woman I know the top shelf of colors and she gave them back to me saying the colors were not for her. The top shelf of colors are tooo neutral fo rme and for my porcelain skin color. I thought they were for someone older, but shegave them back. I offered then to my mom, who also sadi..."they are blah." But the 2nd and 3rd shelves are very bright! I found 3 or 4 wonderful colors in the whole set. Maybe I can use some of the bright , bright colors can be used as a pedicure in the summer? I can;t justify wearing turquoise nail laquer in the middle of winter, nor can I wear the turquise (mermaid color) as tips of afrench with the bright pink. It looks pretty on some, but not me, even in NYC I recieved some strange looks with these colors. I don;t care whatothers think....esp re: my nail color, but I do not like the unusual colors. I bought 3 sets as a TSV, which was close to this price. I live and learn.
I got this kit when it was TSV as I love to paint my nails different colors, but full sized bottles can add up quickly. This kit has a lot of nice colors in it, I've tried out about half of the colors now and I've loved them all except for two: the deep purple shade and the hot pink. I did love the colors of those two, BUT I had problems with application for some reason, I noticed the purple color (used with both a base and top coat) showed like scratches on my nails when it was dry, not chips, but instead scratches, it was odd; and the pink shade sort of peeled off like polish you'd give a child (the nail polish little girls use that peel off nails). Other than that the colors are great. Apply wonderful and it’s the perfect size for a "try me" to figure out what you like and would consider buying full size. I love the gold shades. I think those are my favorite. I think the bottles will last about maybe 3 or 4 applications (using 2 or 3 coats on each application). Overall a nice purchase, I would consider buying another kit like this next year during the holiday season. I gave it 4 stars only because of the problems I've run across with the purple and pink shade... shame, I loved that pink color too, wouldve been a perfect shade for spring.
Best Nail Polish Ever!!!
This is the longest lasting nail polish I have ever used. My hands are in water a lot and this polish just doesn't quit. It's also really fast drying and easy to apply. I have been applying it without a primer or top coat and it still lasts around two weeks or more. I love the colors and gave two boxes as gifts for Christmas, keeping one for me. These mini's are adorable. I'll be coming back for more OPI as it's worth the extra cost to not have to do my nails every few days.
OK for the most part
You have to be sure to use to a top coat of course on the darker colors. Gave this to my daughter for Christmas and she loves the variety, but the darker colors do tend to chip faster. That is true with all lines of nail polish though.
