NOTD: OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine!

Hello dears, how was your week-end? Have you had fun? or may be you could chill out and relax? My weekend was not too bad, considering the horrible weather here in Switzerland, dull, rainy, awfully cold for this time of the year.
Into the nail polish, then! This is my mani today, OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine! From the Germany Collection for Fall, that you all know by now. Here's my opinion:
The good: (I like the name :), very nice dark dusty green shade, which has enough green not to look straight black under most kinds of lightings. I found it very classyl, the formula was on the thick side, but it finally levelled out fine.

The bad: the application was not what I expect from OPI polishes. This is a mini polish and the brush is sh*t. Well, I wanted some shades from this collection and minis are less expensive option to full size bottles, so you have to take the bad that comes with the good. But I did not have the same problem with Suzi & the 7 Düsseldorfs from the same set! The brush was a little stiff and wouldn't bend properly, I really had to struggle to make a neat application near the cuticles, and because of the brush and the thickness it was some cuticle drag that I was able to repair eventually. The point is that I don't want to work that hard with such an expensive product (yes in Switzerland the mini set retails 25,00 Swiss francs, which is more than 25 US dollars!).
That's why I think the name is suitable, when you apply it you go "Nein! Nein! Nein!" and when you look at the final result "OK Fine!".

    1. Hi Gelic, so glad you are visiting my blog!! The nail art will be tomorrow, tomorrow, promised! I've done it and took the photos, but haven't written yet! There was some sunshine today and I chose to take my baby out for a walk, rather than blogging, we really need it after 5 endless days of awful grey weather!
      Your tutorial really rocks!

  2. Like the colour but curses to the duff brush. I generally get on ok with mini brushes because I've got mini nails!
