My Product Tests – OPI A Grape Affair

Even though I love doing my nails until recently I had never tried out any of the OPI nail varnishes. When I opened last months Birchbox I was excited to find a full size OPI bottle from their Coca Cola collection! 

Launched earlier this year, the collection is made up of 9 bold shades inspired by brands in the Coke family – from the punchy ‘Orange You Stylish’ to the more earthy ‘Green on the Runway’ and the subtle ‘You’re so Vain-illa’ it contains something for everyone.

I was lucky enough to receive the Fanta Grape inspired ‘Oh So Grape’ to try out and as I’m currently sporting purple Shellac Rockstar fingers I decided to give this a go on my toes whilst enjoying the drink from which it takes its fantastic colour.

I was really impressed with how easy this applied, the brush handle is slightly longer making it easier to grip, the wide tipped brush makes avoiding streaks a breeze and the formula doesn’t thicken or go gloopy as you apply either. Oh and another plus point is that being formaldehyde free OPI varnishes don’t have that strong odour to them either. 

This deep, sophisticated purple only too two coats to look solid and has lasted two weeks of boots and not worn or chipped. Get yours from Birchbox for just £11.95.
