Today I have the OPI Nail Envy Strength in Color Collection to share with you. As a one time loyal user of Nail Envy, I was extremely interested to see these new creations. The collection contains re-vamped shades, so the names might sound familiar to you.
Bubble Bath - soft, sheer pink. The formula was a tad thick but as you can see it was still quite sheer. I like how it seems to hide imperfections and makes my nails look nice and soft. I applied two coats and it evened out nicely without smearing.
Hawaiian Orchid - soft, dusty mauve. The pigmentation with this one was quite good. I applied two coats and had perfect application. I don't think this color looks very nice with my skin tone but that's me not the formula!
Samoan Sand - soft, camel nude. Samoan Sand has always been a favorite shade. I just happen to own an old black label bottle! I applied two coats and noticed some streaking but not enough that I couldn't wear it. I applied three coats the next time I wore and still noticed streaks. With careful application it is wearable in two. This one was my favorite!
And here is the entire collection. I didn't swatch the clear one because you would just see shiny nails. I used Nail Envy for many years before I thought it stopped working. I think it was all in my head and a combination of other things. I highly recommend trying it out yourself, if you are looking for a good nail strengthener!
