I tried OPI Fly a couple of months ago, late at night, painting my nails in bed. I usually do my nails late at night but when I do them in bed, it doesn't turn out so well... I ended up smudging the polish a ton, getting it all over my cuticles and it just was not fun. The colour also looked really strange and not like other swatches I'd seen! (Turns out this was just because I was in a poorly lit room, thankfully. I was scared I got a dodgy bottle or something.) I ended up getting a bunch of sheet marks and even more smudges in it when I woke up as well, so I just removed it first thing in the morning. It did stain my fingers a little with removal too. I also broke a nail that morning.
Swatches & more info after the jump!
Anyway! I tried Fly again a few weeks ago when I was house sitting. I ended up LOVING it this time! The polish looked much better when I was under a better light and in natural light, outdoors. It's a gorgeous bright teal-blue. A lot of people said that their Fly needed 3 coats to be opaque but mine was almost opaque in one so I'm not sure what that's about!
This polish does stain the nails a little, mostly the cuticle and skin around the nail for me. That's my only downside. Other than that I LOVE Fly! I actually love almost the whole Nicki Minaj collection! I own about 10-15 OPIs (not including mini sets). Can you believe that 5 of them are from the Nicki Minaj collection?! I own the whole collection apart from Did It On 'Em; a lime green that I think would look HORRIBLE on me. I'll be sure to feature some of the other colours from this collection soon because I love them all!
Do you own Fly or any others from the Nicki Minaj collection by OPI? :) What are your favourites? Leave me a comment below & let me know! :) I'd love to hear your opinions.
