OPI Fly

Here is a polish that really surprised me! Fly is a polish from OPI's Nicki Minaj Collection, which should be popping up in stores now. I was expecting Fly to be a bit too bright and out there for my polish tastes, but I couldn't be more wrong!

Fly is a medium bright blue creme polish. This polish is the perfect shade of blue for me without venturing into the neon category. I find that neons don't normally look too great on my nails, they tend to wash me out and look even more pale than I already am. So, applying this polish I was ready to cringe at the overwhelming brightness of it, but it was just gorgeous! First, I applied OPI's Ridge Filler, since Fly is a creme polish. The Ridge Filler makes creme polishes apply flawlessly, creating an even nail for the polish to glide on smoothly. I then applied two coats of Fly, which resulted in a gorgeous opaque look. I'm not sure if this polish would have been streaky if I hadn't used the ridge filler, but I didn't want to take the chance. I then applied a coat of OPI's Top Coat, which I love! It makes everything so shiny and makes my polish last so long. I haven't tried the cult fave Seche Vite, since I am currently happy with OPI's Top Coat. Is Seche really that amazing that I need to switch it up? I kept Fly on for 3 days and I didn't experience any chipping or fading.

I've seen other bloggers layer Save Me over top of Fly, and I just love it! I will have to try this combo out the next time I wear this polish :)

What are your thoughts on Fly? Do you like bright, neon shades, or are you like me and tend to fear those bright colours? Let me know!
