For my second “Manicure Monday” I chose an oldie but goodie, “My Private Jet” by OPI. First off, I must say, OPI’s names are to die for and the colors are endless! This was a color I’ve always either seen on other people, or was runner up for my bi-monthly manicures. I decided to purchase it although I haven’t worn OPI in a long time. The color is gorgeous. A deep black with glints of glamorous sparkle to create very minimal speckles. The color reminded me of a starry night.
I received so many compliments on this color and even wrote the color down for a few people. I sometimes forget about OPI’s colors because of the numerous amount of options a girl has for nail polish now-a-days. I have to admit, I was nervous about the chipping too.
I must say, either I did an extra good job on this manicure or that Butter London top coat worked magic once again. I did find that with OPI top coat on one side and the Butter London on the other, the Butter London side won. I wore this color for a FULL week, with only two chips on my left (very very minimal) and one chip on my right hand side. I was very surprised and a very happy girl. One of the most annoying things to have happen is when your nail chips, so I was very impressed with the results.
TOP COAT. TOP COAT. TOP COAT. TOP COAT – you really do need it people, I know it’s tedious but it beats having chipped nails on day two. If it’s really a big damper on your day, get a fast drying one that dries instantly.
Now, bring it on Nicki Minaj OPI Collection, I will post pictures as soon as I get my nails on them.
