OPI Peace & Love & OPI Nail Polish Review, Photos, & Swatches

OPI Peace & Love & OPI

I have never purchased a mini nail polish set before, mainly because I usually find only one or two colors appealing.  However, the set for OPI’s San Francisco collection contains four deep colors-perfect for fall!  I will review each shade separately and then give an overview of the set.

OPI Peace & Love & OPI (price and quantity for full size: $9.00 USD for 0.5 oz./15 ml.) is described by the brand as a “holographic sage and eggplant.”  It has a medium charcoal gray base with violet and bright, sage green shimmer.  The shimmer gives the polish a duochrome look-depending on the angle in which you look at the polish, different colors will appear.  In darker lighting the charcoal base is more visible and in decent to bright lighting, you will see flashes of medium, eggplant purple and sage green.

Despite the small brush, Peace & Love & OPI applies evenly and opaquely in two coats.  The texture is not too thick or too thin.  It dries down quickly, which is common for metallic polishes, and lasted six days without chipping.  I usually get at least a week of wear from OPI polishes with just minor tip wear, so I deducted points to reflect the longevity.  I used Zoya Anchor and Zoya Armor for my base and top coats.

The only drawback to duochrome polishes, or metallic polishes in general, is they can show brush strokes and any imperfections of the nail.

Important Note: The grade for this nail polish is based on the mini size, not the full-sized version.  I suspect the full-sized version would yield a smoother application and finish due to the larger brush size.
