OPI Nail Lacquer - Sweet Heart 0.5 oz - #NLS96
The sweetest, softest pale pink.
In the bottle it's a whiteish tan with a hint of pink and peach, still very neutral. It looks opague in the bottle.1 coat goes on a bit streaky. It's milky and very pretty but it does not look good in one coat.2 coats go on streaky, but helps even out the first coat. It's milky and semi-opague and pretty true to bottle color. It still doesn't look as good as I would like.3 coats are still streaky and get a bit patchy. I really could not get this too look good even with quick dry, leveling to coat. I would not re-buy it.Skip this, and get an easy to work with formula in the same family (not a shade dupe) with Wet N Wild 2% Milk or Essie Allure or Madamosellie.
This is one of the first OPI products I have bought. Because it's so popular, and expensive, I thought I was going to get a high quality product. Instead, I got something extremely frustrating. This polish is extremely thin and streaky. It takes 3-4 coats to get full coverage, and you have to have a very light touch to keep it even. It takes a very long time for each coat to dry, and is very prone to denting and smudging. I've also found that it is pretty temperamental and bubbles easily when drying. You can't agitate the bottle at all before you use it, and after applying don't blow on it or shake your hands about or you'll have to start over. You need A LOT of time and patience if you want to get a good manicure out of it.The colour is lovely, and makes me feel girly and cheerful when I have it on. I also love it with a matte top coat, it deepens the colour and gives a lovely effect. I also prefer this polish on my toes, I think it looks super cute. It can be long lasting without chipping or cracking once it's all on and dried, I've had it to last up to a week without any visible damage.
Beautiful color but I think it's best to find it in a different formula. Unfortunately, this just is to milky and streaky for me. I've used it a bunch of times but it takes a lot longer to paint my nails with this since you need at least 3 layers to get it mostly opaque and each layer needs slightly longer than normal to dry. I also really appreciate a nail polish that is shiny and I feel like once the multiple layers have finally dried I'm left with an almost matte finish so I definitely need a top coat to give any shine. I almost always end up having to paint one nail an accent color because the polish will dent easily. On the plus side, when I do take all the time to use this polish I'm always very impressed with the lack of chipping. Normally my nails start chipping on day 2 but with this I can usually get about 4 days before I see any chipping.
I absolutely love this polish. It looks so natural on my nails. The baby pink is perfect for my complexion. The formula applies streaky on the first coat, but the second coat evens out the streaks. It definitely applies better with the OPI Natural Base Coat. I love it!
