Have you guys expirienced different textures of OPI nail polishes? I love mine,but some get thick just after few uses,and some of them I have for over a year now and they are still perfect.

Do you keep your nail varnishes in the dark and out of direct sunlight or heat? That can sometimes help them to stay fresh. If they become thick, a small drop of nail varnish remover in the bottle can solve the issue.

Sometimes my Essie nail varnish sort of separate? It can be frustrating, haha. I also find that whenever I take nail varnishes in my luggage on a airplane their texture gets absolutely ruined. Does anyone else have this issue?

While it's unfortunate, it's not unusual for nail polishes to become thick or separate. More than half of my collection has separated at some point... yet I just roll & shake the bottles until their consistent again.

For thickening occurrences, add nail polish thinner into the nail polish. Zoya, Seche, and Essie are among brands that make thinners.

Nope, thankfully I didn't have that problem.. Because if I did, I'd be totally damned.. Hahaha. I bought lots of polishes in London and my flight was around 16hours in total for one way. Anyway, do you always have that issue or is it a one time thing?

I will definately buy nail polish thinner on my next trip abroad,since I don't see that selling in my country,tough I was always negative about putting nail polish remover in my nail polishes 'cause I feel it's ruining my nails.

As far as thickness of nail polishes goes,I'm starting to think that maybe it has to do with the place they are produced.In my country for example,I never buy perfumes because they are not as good quality as when I buy them somewhere abroad,and maybe same thing goes for nail polishes.

Here are the color spoon swatches of the whole dazzling Ornate Collection:



I love how eye-catching Electra is. Definitely need that shade... and perhaps Blaze and Aurora too!

I will need the entire collection. Even the gold which does not flatter my skin tone, but it is bloody gorgeous.
