Today’s post is OPI Nail Lacquer Icebergers & Fries Review,NOTD
Icebergers & Fries is officially my first OPI Nail polish as this is for the first time I used an OPI Nail paint religiously – literally every alternate week. I bought one OPI Nail Paint long time back which was black blue in color but I hardly remember using it and lost it eventually on airport itself. Back then,OPI was not available in India and even I purchased Icebergers & Fries from Sephora,Bali. Thankfully , Nykaa has started selling OPI Nail polishes in India – 15ml of product is priced for 850 INR . Nykaa is selling 78 shades of OPI Nail Lacquers in India but I was not able to spot Icebergers & Fries among them .
Anyhow in this post, I will be reviewing OPI Nail Lacquer Icebergers & Fries with manicure pictures.

OPI Nail Lacquer Iceberger & Fries Review,NOTD
Brand Claims:With a superlative range of shades and a neat and delightful performance, OPI is a nonpareil name in the nail fashion industry and is a number one nail paint brand worldwide! From elegant classics & soft-shade nudes to eye-popping brights and unique hue nail lacquers, OPI has every color you’ve ever wished for! These nail lacquers provide exceptional formula, backed with fashion-forward colors and iconic shade names. The seriously pigmented lacquers are super rich, long-lasting, and chip-resistant offering you a luxury you certainly need!
OPI nail lacquers are famous for their wide shade range and creamy rich formulas. I was keen to pick one nail paint from OPI while I was rambling around in aisles of Sephora,Bali.I tried picking up shade that is universal, suit my medium skin tone and is not outfit bound. I loved Icebergers & Fries most among all the brown nail paints as it is gorgeous ginger – chocolate brown color that looks pretty on my hands. This shade has certain sophistication with style and I can wear it on my fully trimmed nails or long filed nails and even on my toe nails.
Coming to packaging and formula, all I seek from a nail polish is good quality brush, creamy formula, streak free application,pigment density and longevity. OPI nail lacquer Icebergers & Fries is packaged in sturdy round glass bottle ( 15ml) with matte black lid. Applicator brush is well rounded , medium in density and works aptly to spread the product on my nails. I get complete opacity in two swipes. Formula wears even on nails and gives streak free , creamy smooth finish with hint of shine. However formula takes time to dry completely which sometimes make me restless .
I wash feeders of two year old daily by myself and that is only time my hands are in prolonged contact with water. OPI nail lacquer starts coming off the edges of my right hand nails within a day of application. On my left hand nails, it wears chip resistant for up to 4-5 days but the shine is lost in a 2-3 days.It comes out easily with regular nail paint remover and this particular shade does not stain my nails.
VANILLA RATINGS 8/10
So even though the OPI nail lacquer has smooth creamy texture that gives streak free finish, but the prolonged drying time bothers me . Obviously I can enhance the wear time and finish using good base and top coats.OPI nail lacquers range does have really nice shades.
Icebergs & Fries is gorgeous warm brown with yellow undertones that looks sophisticated ,stylish and is perfect for everyday as well as office wear.These are no doubt expensive nail paints!!
