OPI Fly Nail Polish Review

On my recent trip to San Diego I picked up a few nail polishes and one of them was Fly by OPI as part of their Nicki Minaj collection. I'm not an overly big fan of Nicki Minaj so I hadn't intended on even looking at any of her nail varnish collection, nor was I really even aware that she had one, but the colours were so beautiful I ended up getting two. I got this one and Pink Friday and I'm in love with them and the OPI nail polish collection in general.

Fly is a beautiful teal blue type colour which is perfect for Summer and seems to go with anything. It goes on really smoothly and easily and the texture of this one is quite thick so once opening it up it nearly covers three nails without having to dip it back in. It also dries fairly quickly comapred to some other brands I've tried, which I love as I hate having to wait ages before I'm allowed to touch anything.

I done two coats of this polish, but really, you could probably get away with just the one if you were pressed for time. These two photographs show what it looked like after one coat, and then after another. Sorry they aren't too good quality, they were taken with my iPhone camera and I really should probably just use my own proper camera for things like this! As you can see, it looks pretty much the same in both photographs because the colour is pretty bright and thick anyway! I'm writing this after applying the polish yesterday and it and I have to say that I'm pretty impressed at how well it's stayed on as I'm quite hard on my nails and it hasn't really chipped all that much. 6/10 nails are completely perfect, and the rest of just tiny chips in the corner which aren't really that noticeable.

If anyone is interested I can also do a review of the other Nicki Minaj nail polish I bought, which is the Pink Friday polish, and it's a lovely bright baby pink which reminds me of a Barbie nail polish would look like. I've used it a few times and love how bright and colourful it is. 

Update: Just letting you all know that I found out that Asos actually sell this nail polish, and the other colours from the Nicki Minaj collection. You can find them by clicking here.
