Nails: OPI Yoga-Ta Get This Blue Nail Polish

Last week I was looking around online for OPI Chip Skip because I heard it was really good at preventing chipped nails. I found it on Amazon from a couple different sellers, but ultimately decided to get it from “BeautyLand4U” because it came with a bottle of OPI nail polish as well. It seemed like a better deal so I went for it and purchased OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue (i47) & Chip Skip together for $12.25 + $2.00 S&H.

FYI: OPI is a professional product, it is only sold through salons. All other online (including amazon, ebay and drugstore.com) and mass market/drug store retail is technically illegal.

As soon as it arrived, I filed my nails, buffed them, applied a layer of “Chip Skip” – a super thin and watery solution that dries really fast. Then I applied 2 coats of OPI Nail Lacquer “Yoga-Ta Get This Blue”. In the bottle when you hold it to the light, you can see green, aqua and purple speckles in the polish. When applied though, it’s just a shimmery navy blue. I finished it off with a coat of nails inc. Kensington Caviar Top Coat ($10).

It stayed on AMAZINGLY well for 6 days before I saw a chip. After 8 days, the tips of 4 nails were chipped off. I touched them up just on the ends, let it dry and then decided to throw on a coat of OPI Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night” – a shimmering, glittery blue. It looked like sparkling stars against a night sky, so I added two little gold nail stickers on my ring fingers as an accent.

My nails looked great for another 4 days before they started to fail. I was really impressed with the overall staying power of this at-home manicure.

What do you think of my manicure?
