Sometimes when you just aren't feeling it, a fresh coat of polish is all you need to appear put together. Especially in a bright red shade. So if you haven't gotten much sleep or it's a gloomy rainy day, taking the time to paint your nails may be just the thing to pick you up. It sure works for me. No one has to know that you literally just rolled out of bed and threw on the easiest outfit and a pair of sunglasses. Immediately your look will have an air of sophistication to it. And that brings me to the nail polish currently on my nails in this vibrant shade of red. It's by OPI and it's called "Big Apple Red."
I used to appreciate the OPI nail polishes in terms of wear. The last few I've acquired haven't been all that great in that aspect though. I believe that may be due to trying to their newer 7 day formulation and these just don't come close. I get a couple days wear with this one at the very most.
It's interesting how this specific shade changes in different lighting as you can see in the photos. OPI nail polishes are priced at somewhere around $8 in most places, not terrible for a decent nail polish. 1 coat doesn't quite do it with this nail polish, 2 coats gets you to a satisfying opaque finish.
Aside from that, it is not often I come across a red that I like on my skin tone and this one is a beauty. I sure hope this gets added to their 7 day collection.
Have you given any of this nail polish a try? If you have, what did you think of it? If you haven't do you want to?
