SPARKLE: OPI Jade is the new black

I put off getting this polish for the longest time because of my dislike of OPI and how hyped this colour was. Ultimately I have come to have an appreciation for some OPI shades (any polish brand is bound to create some stunners) and after eyeballing this shade for 3 months I finally ordered it.

This colour is the most gorgeous shade of green. It has a beautiful shiny finish and was opaque in 2 coats. Unfortunately for me this chipped the next day which is something I experience only occasionally with brands. While I found the wear time to be disappointing I think it is fair to mention that this shade was released in OPI's 2010 Hong Kong collection. As with any brand formulas improve and I have not had this issue with any of the other OPI shades I have tried so far.

If you love creme finishes and green, it is hard to pass up this shade as it is simply stunning. Just don't expect it to last too long on your nails and you'll be BFFs.

Happy Saturday everyone

  1. I find that OPI chips on me easily. This color suits your skin tone.

    1. Oh that's interesting T. I'd definitely stay away from this one then.

    1. Thanks Di, I am definitely glad I gave in and bought it. I'm just a little bummmed how quickly it chipped.

  3. I had this on my toes last week - great colour.
