A Nail Polish Obsession #1

OPI My Very First Knockwurst nail polish

Now I’m usually all about the dark vampy reds, purples and navy’s this time of year but this OPI polish has caught my attention and I cannot get enough! This stuff has not left my nails for longer than two days since I got it a month ago and I can’t see that changing anytime soon!

If you have read my Manicure Essentials post you will know that I usually forego coloured nail polish on my fingernails and save it for my toenails. This is because I cannot stand chipped nail polish or more likely, my obsession with then picking the rest of the polish off! This stuff however is on a whole other level and the little nail combination I have been using has ensured this is the longest lasting manicure I’ve ever had, lasting a good four days before chipping which is a lifetime for me!

OPI My Very First Knockwurst manicure Nail Ency Seche Vite

As usual, I apply my OPI Nail Envy as a base coat, this is the most amazing nail polish ever and I often wear this on its own because it gives the most amazing shine to my nails and really strengthens them. Nail Envy was actually the only OPI nail polish I had tried prior to getting this one but I have a feeling this will change as I love the formulation of the two I have so much!

I first saw OPI My Very First Knockwurst on my friend at works nails about a month ago and had to know what it was! She couldn’t remember and wrote it down for me that evening and I had it ordered before break time at work the next day! It is the most perfect nude-y, pinky, pastely, chic, sophisticated shade of nail polish I have ever owned and I am obsessed with it! I mentioned that I have been so impressed with the wear time which could be down to the top coat I've been using (I haven’t tried it without).

Now I know Seche Vite hasn’t got the best ingredients in it but boy does it dry fast! Gone is the endless flapping of my hands to try and dry my nails quicker only to hit something by accident and smudge my whole nail anyway! Overall, this has become my nail dream team and I can’t stop wearing it!

I've just linked the EBay sellers I bought the products from if you want to have a look as these can be so expensive full price!

What nail colours have you been loving recently? Do you like this one or is it too nude for you?

  8. This one is perfect! I've been searching for a color like this (particularly in Essie) but haven't been able to find one. It's so great that OPI has one though, since I really like them too. Great post!

  17. yea nail color never lasts on me, it almost always gets dented or imperfect within 5 mins but a good base and top coat do help! i use seche as well and it smells super toxic which i don't like...but it does work..

  21. That nude pinky shade is amazing! These days I've been painting my nail with that kind of shades as well, sometimes I go for a brownier shade, sometimes for something pinkier. That one looks so fab for these days!

  26. Love hearing people's polish picks. Love OPI and Essie, too. My nails unfortunately don't grow nicely, so lighter polishes on my fingernails are typically the way I go, too! www.styledarrow.com
