Hello and happy Saturday!!! This week I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of the OPI Gwen Stefani collection polishes. I didn’t fancy all of the colours but Push and Shove and Love.Angel.Music.Baby. tickled my fancy quite a bit :P Firstly I would like to show you OPI Push and Shove swatches.
Push and Shove is a mirrored chrome polish. It being my very first mirrored chrome polish I was extremely excited to try it out. It sure is one unique polish! Firstly, it comes with a special mini Lay Down that Base coat. OPI claims that this is the only base the polish would work and trust me- it is true (I tried Gelous/Nail Envy and it didn’t work). Secondly, it is intended for one night only wear. Again, I tested and it’s true- after about 24h the polish was happily chipping away :P The application was easy, however the brush left quite a few brush lines. Fortunately these lines kind of disappeared when the polish dried, the polish was touch dry after about 4-5 minutes. It dries into a very thin layer which brings out all the imperfections your nails may have- see my pinky!!! (I had no idea that I have such ridge there :P) lol Therefore I’d buffer the nails before applying this baby
Overall a really cool polish and perfect for a night out. It is unfortunate however that no other polish works with it. The “complimentary” Lay Down that Base is only 3.75ml and when you run out of that- you won’t have anything to use as the base :(
Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed my OPI Push and Shove swatches. I shall be back with Love.Angel.Music.Baby. soon! Anyway, I would love to hear what you think of Push and Shove! xoxox
