A while ago I came across a very pretty nude nail polish. I don’t have a lot of nude coloured nail polishes in my collection, so I decided to buy it. It’s by OPI and it’s called You’re So Vanilla. Today it’s time for the review. If you’re interested in finding out how I ended up liking this OPI nail polish, make sure you keep on reading!
The OPI Nail Polishes always come in these really pretty big bottles. I really love that about OPI. Their polishes aren’t the cheapest, but at least you do get a decent amount of polish for your money. Another great thing about the OPI polishes is the brush it comes with. It doesn’t have a special shape like the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes have or the Essie nail polishes, but it’s really nice to work with and I like using them.
OPI has one of the biggest colour selections of all nail polish brands and therefore unlimited choice. The colour I’m reviewing today is called You’re So Vanilla. I once saw it, I guess at TK Maxx, and since I don’t really have a lot of neutral nail colours, I decided to take it with me.
You’re So Vanilla is a very pretty yellowy nail polish with a bit of a beigy/greyish undertone. It’s pretty unique, at least I have never really seen something like it, and I think it is a colour that goes with lots of outfits. Aside from being a nice nail colour for everyday wear, I also think it’s a great base colour for nail arts. That because it’s very neutral and it looks good with lots of other colours.
Even though I am positive about the colour, I didn’t like the way it looked on my nails. There’s just something not right about it for me. I can’t put my finger on what it is, but I just didn’t like the look of it.
Sorry for the messy application.
Despite the fact that I ended up not liking the colour too much, the polish is still really amazing. It’s very opaque and covers perfectly within two coats, which is ,for a light coloured polish like this one, pretty amazing. It also has a very nice finish to it, especially when you put a nice top coat on top of it.
The lasting power is pretty great too, but not impressive. It stayed in place for about 3 days, after that I started noticing some tip wear. After 4 to 5 days I really had to take it off.
Overall I think this OPI polish in You’re So Vanilla is pretty okay. It’s not my favourite colour on earth, but aside from that I like the way it works and looks. In general I really like the quality of the OPI nail polishes. Aside from the fact that this colour wasn’t really my cup of tea, I do recommend it. Maybe go for a different colour if you’re not that into this shade either, but quality wise it’s definitely worth the money.
The OPI Nail Polishes are available online and in beauty stores for €15,-.
That was it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and let me know how you like this polish!
