Anyways let me leave this lovely talk for our big day and continue with my today’s goodie which is again a surprise gift from my better half! So here I come with OPI nail lacquer “midnight in moscow”..  Please read on further to know if it’s worth the hype!

My Experience with O.P.I Nail Lacquer “Midnight in Moscow”:

Well by now I have totally understood that not every stuff from a brand needs to be consistent or true to its claim. If one product worked well for you that may not hold same for others too! I was initially fascinated by OPI nail lacquers for their long lasting shine and chi- resistant formula but this particular “Midnight in Moscow” seems an exception! I hardly wore it for 3 days and it already started showing signs of chipping and fading from all 5 fingers of my left hand! However, the shade in itself is superb, thick charcoal black with maroon shimmers which looks black in artificial light but I can actually see its brownish maroonish pigmentation in natural sunlight. I love the fact that it brightens skin tone of my hands every time while wearing it or washing hands. It goes well with almost every outfit which is a bit relieving for a messy mum like me. Apart from the shade the texture is super fast drying and evenly coats nails but I feel surprised to see how it chips off on the very 3rd day of wearing it that too from my left hand which is hardly dipped in detergent or water! I wonder why  it hardly stays intact 2 days as of now that too when I have limited my kitchen and laundry task, how long will it stay when I will come to my real form in summers! I am more in love with this black maroon shade rather than anything else. I don’t know if I would ever reconsider it in my shopping list.

Cons of O.P.I Nail Lacquer Midnight in Moscow

• Unfortunately this particular nail lacquer chipped off on the very 3rd day of wearing it on my nails.
• It is really expensive for the fact that it chips like any ordinary nail lacquer.
Well I could only say better try testers and then opt for these even if they are hype,d for you never know what you get at the end! I love all shades of OPI I own till date and probably this “Midnight in moscow” is my favourite shade forgetting its chipping off! I would like to give it a second chance for it is a gift from my hubby! So gals if you want to pick it up for its long lasting chip resistant formula then it may disappoint you totally, for the shade it is superbly awesome! Hope it helps!

neetu, i totally agree with you regarding the sentiments about love….we had 2nd anniversary on 25th Nov, we took Panga with family society friends department we work in, guess everywhere to be with each other, a long story so i really know how it feels to fall in love with same man again and again because we are still facing the aftershocks of our marriage…
the color is superb, liked your nails but again, the same thing that’s the price for a nail liqueur that chips off on 3rd day is not justified…
loved aadiya a lot, give her a kiss and warm hug on my behalf…please keep posting her, MashaAllah you are blessed with an angel, may Allah bless her with every happiness success and prosperity & health in her life …. *clap* Ameen

aww.. *puchhi* lovely sameera dear. Unfortunately I have to say we both never got this golden oppurtunity to discover magic of love as our wedding was fixed even before we cud meet or even see each other in person. *haan ji* I always love to hear succesful love stories for deep down we knw my hubby n myself used to hv secret crush for someone else bt it nvr happened as we used to think at that time.. *silence* Finlly destiny or say parents made us man & wife n thats hw we discovered the magic of love and understood difference b/w our infatuation and love.. *haan ji* *happydance* We dnt hold regrets anymore but it feels gud to see love birds united.. *puchhi* *pompom* Today anyways i thank god for blessing me to be mrs lohani.. *happydance*
N *thankyou* *puchhi* for ur lovely blessings for aadya dear.. truly touched.. *puchhi*
