I used to have nail arts done (by my sister Mariah) or change my nail color every week. I mostly stuck to shades of red, pink, and blue though.
Anyway, now I have to do my own nails and I have to wear muted colors. In my line of work, the nail color of choice is NATURAL (or at least close to it).
Thus, I’ve been searching a long time for a nail color that is safe to wear at work. So in my search for the perfect “safe for work” nail polish, I entered the world of Sephora, where I can literally spend hours looking, touching, and trying out all the products. Imagine my happiness when I went to the NAILS section and my frustration when, after being there for more than an hour, I still couldn’t decide on which color to get.
I ended up leaving without buying anything… and then going back there the next day to try almost all the shades again. This time though, I ended up purchasing Heart Throb by O.P.I.
O.P.I Heart Throb has such a beautiful soft pink color. It’s pretty sheer so I needed to apply two coats for the color to really pop out. This is like the “perfect nude” equivalent in the world of lipsticks. I love how it makes my nails look healthy and beautiful.
As you can see, the color is really nice and buildable. You can add a layer of glitter polish if you’re going out to a party. You can also add a French tip for a well-groomed look. It’s a great color for work or school. Agree? 🙂
This O.P.I nail polish applies very smoothly. I love how it lasts very long and doesn’t chip very easily. I wash the dishes every day, cook, and do laundry once a week so I was really amazed when it lasted for a whole week without chipping off. This nail polish is really worth every dollar. 🙂
O.P.I is comparable to Orly and China Glaze. I have used all 3 brands and I am really happy whenever I use them. These 3 brands have a wide range of colors. They’re all easy to apply and lasts at least a week. 🙂 Really good value for money!
Sometimes, I couldn’t find the colors that I want in certain shops because they have no more stocks. Thus, I’d have to come back another day or just visit another store, which is just too tiring and troublesome for me. Thankfully, there are online stores which offer nail polishes for sale!
Thank God for online shops like Zalora. 🙂 Zalora Philippines carries the top nail polish brands online. They have Orly, China Glaze, Zoya, VOV, and more. Do check them out especially if you’re the type of girl who changes nail color daily or weekly. Hehe!
