OPI Big Apple Red

Hello gentle readers.

One thing I like about OPI now being available at Sally Beauty Supply is that when I have a few clams lying around and a coupon I can pop in and grab myself a core line colour or two to to keep adding to my collection. One of my latest acquisitions is the incomparable, classic Big Apple Red, a smooth, shiny, flawless blue red crelly. If you are a regular reader here you know that I can no more resist a beautiful red polish than I can taking my next breath. They sing their sweet siren song to me and I have to have them.

I am actually currently wearing this polish. This is two coats and it is topped with Nubar Diamont top coat. I have heard a lot about that top coat and I finally decided to pick up a bottle and give it a test drive. I'll do a review on it, once I've had a chance to run it in really well.






The formula on OPI Big Apple Red is as gorgeous as the colour. Smooth, silky and biddable, it flows off the Pro-Wide brush, sits down where you place it and whispers up the nail without streaking, dragging, running, pooling or bubbling. Dry time is pretty good. I am seeing a little minor tip chipping I will have to touch up in the morning on a couple of nails on my right hand, after two days wear. I don't mind. I am planning to do a glitter gradient tutorial over this manicure so it's all good. I'll get a couple more days wear out of it, this way.

What do you think of OPI Big Apple Red? Do you own this classic, iconic red polish? If you would like to, it is part of OPI's core line and is available wherever OPI is sold. I picked mine up at Sally Beauty Supply. As I said earlier in my post, I like to buy some of my OPI there using my Sally Beauty Club Card and any coupons I may have. It saves me a little money and allows me to get more polish. Two very good things.

Thank you so very much for popping in and reading and have a great day.

  2. I actually don't have this one yet and I LoVE reds, just like you... I wonder what other color this is similar to?

  8. Oh, bummer. There are beautiful classic blue based reds from many brands, you should be able to find one or a few that will be more compatible with your chemistry. :)

  18. I didn't know OPI was at Sally's. I guess I need a visit there. The Nubar Diamant is wonderful. I should get a new one.
