OPI Nail Polish Swatches

Two weeks ago I began swatching my Essie polishes and recently I have completed my collection of OPIs.                                             

I purchased the clear nail wheels from BF-Beauty:

A package of 10 wheels was only $4.99. I bought the clear wheels so that I could see the true opacity of each polish.

On the wheels below, I applied 3 coats of each polish. I did not apply a base coat or top coat to any of the nails.

  1. The wheel seems to be helpful in knowing what shade the polish will look like. I always have to test my old nail polish on one of my nail to see the actual shade.
