Today I’m reviewing O.P.I Nail lacquer in the shade Silent Mauvie.
Price : Rs 520
I purchased it from B.LAB but it is also available at Styelcraze.com as well as Healthkart.com.
Quantity : 15 ml
What the company says about the product :
Available in almost every shade known and also in those you didn’t know existed;
OPI is THE product you have been waiting for. Carefully chosen and created with a great sense of style and boldness, none of their shades are ever out of vogue. Each shade comes with an eccentric name and their superb finish has already made them a household product across the globe. Whats more, they are amazingly quick drying which makes them busy-lifestyle-friendly and incredibly chip resistant which means, no more hassle when you travel! These nail colours last for a really long time so when the colour vial is finally empty, you would have gotten so used to its presence, you will absolutely want to have another one.
There’s more to OPI than just fashion and a sense of humour. They love the planet we live in and hence all their products are devoid of Dibutyl Phthalate, Totulene and Formaldehyde. In fact, even the containers in which they are stored are made of recyclable material. Love them for their colours, or love them for their style, they are a delightful way of saving our planet.
My take on the product
This is my first O.P.I nail lacquer and the most expensive nail paint I own and after using it I can see why it has such a fan following!
O.P.I nail paints come in a signature big round bottle with tapered ends and a black plastic cap. The quantity is 15 ml which is nearly double of most nail paints and the bottle looks quite big on first look. The brush is of excellent quality as one would expect from a nail paint at this price and coats the nail evenly without streaking! I really like the packaging except for one small con – the nail paint tends to dry and accumulate near the mouth of the bottle and can get messy if it continues to happen over time.
The consistency of this nail paint is delightful! Its neither too runny, nor too thick. It glides over the nail evenly and gives opaque color in single coat. The color can be intensified in 2 coats. It doesn’t dry very fast but doesn’t take too long to dry either. Application is easy and gives the perfect finish! The lasting power of this nail paint is not bad but I had expected better for the price. It begins to chip lightly after the 3rd day but the chipping rate is slow so one can easily wear it upto a week. After 8 days of wear, the look of the nails isn’t too bad as can be seen in the last image. Overall, the formula is great but I feel the staying power can be better.
Silent Mauvie :
The shade Silent Mauvie is a gorgeous brownish pinked plum shade. It appears like a mid tone earthy pink-plum in one coat and the color deepens to a deep plum in 2 coats. The nail lacquer has a pearlized finish due to presence of very subtle micro shimmer. It appears glossy but only on close observation, once can see the pearl particles. The shade is perfect for the cool season and would suit all complexions and skin tones. It neither too cool nor too warm, it doesn’t scream for attention and gives a polished look to the hands. In my opinion, its a must-have shade for Indian skin tones especially for this season! Highly recommended!

O.P.I Nail Lacquers have excellent formula and come in the signature classy O.P.I packaging. The nail lacquer coats the nails evenly and gives opaque color in single coat, it is free from harsh chemicals and can be worn on the nails for a week with tolerable chipping. The application itself is breezy and it gives flawless finish! The shade selection is H-U-G-E and has every shade possible.

The price is on the higher side and even though one gets a lot of quantity, I wish the wear time was a little better.
