It’s pretty obvious from the content of this blog that I love nail polish, and because of my blog I am often switching up the shades both for swatching purposes and because I have a trillion polishes to wear. One of my biggest beauty concerns is trying to keep my nails from peeling and cracking, which is exactly what OPI Nail Envy helps to do!
In addition to the regular, clear base coats, there are now four OPI Nail Envy Strength In Color tinted options that you can use on their own, or under another polish and I put my nails to work again to share OPI Nail Envy Bubble Bath*, Hawaiian Orchid*, Pink to Envy* and Samoan Sand* with you today.
Three of the shades in the OPI Nail Envy Strength In Color Collection are permanent polish options now available in the nail strengthening formula, and that includes OPI Nail Envy Bubble Bath. This is baby pink is milky and semi-sheer with 3 coats, although the formula is fairly even which is often an issue I have with similar shades. That said, in terms of which one I’d reach for, I feel like the other shades are all slightly more flattering to my imperfect nails.
The only shade which is opaque is the OPI Nail Envy Hawaiian Orchid in two coats and it’s definitely my favourite from the OPI Nail Envy Strength In Color Collection. This pink mauve creme is a gorgeous shade that is easily wearable on its own so I will definitely be reaching for it when my nails need a break from more demanding polishes.
If you’re looking for a slight twist on the regular OPI Nail Envy, there’s a new shade exclusive to the line that provides a very subtle pink tint, the OPI Nail Envy Pink to Envy. I went with two coats and it has a good formula but is quite sheer and basically just provides a bit of a healthy tint to your nails, as you can probably tell, mine definitely need the help!
The final OPI Nail Envy Strength In Color Collection option is OPI Nail Envy Samoan Sand, a creamy nude beige that is nearly opaque in two coats. This is a really flattering option for those who like more nude polish shades.
Overall, I am really excited about the OPI Nail Envy Strength In Color Collection, and after a couple weeks I do see improvement in my nails already. My personal favourite is definitely the OPI Nail Envy Hawaiian Orchid and I really hope OPI decides to expand the range because I would love a bright blue nail strengthener next!
