OPI Lucky Luck Lavender

Who knew a nail polish could change your fortunes? But OPI seems to think so , insisting that this lavender nail polish is not just lucky, its lucky lucky !!! (I dont know why, but im getting an image of this nail polish dancing around , waving its brush in the air doing bhangra in that song- “Oy lucky lucky Oy!”) . While i am yet to test whether this actually gave me any luck (im going to wear this to a cards party and see if i win!), i can safely say OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender is one of the prettiest pastel polishes to own this summer.

Lavender is really a wrong word to describe this polish-its definitely not a blue based purple. This is more mauve- a soft, light purplish pink. Infact its more pink with a hint of purple in it. That was a slight dissapointment since really, i just wanted a lavender polish but once this was on my hands i kind of fell in love and didnt mind! Like all OPI Polishes this was smooth and hassle free to apply and its been 3 days without chipping on my hand so yay! OPI Cremes are really lovely and streak free so they are a delight to apply! One thing i do love about OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender one more than other OPI’s is that this was two coats to opaque while in some other lighter ones like Sweetheart and Coney Island Cotton Candy, it takes atleast 3 to reach anywhere near opacity! One thing i did notice though was that this particular one did not have the kind of glossy finish i experienced with Coney Island. This was much more subtle shine and not high gloss.

The reason i actually went and spent this much money on a nail polish is because on my honeymoon i wanted a polish thats sturdy and chip resistant. ( Me no buying nail polish remover from Paris and paying 10 Euros for it !!!) . OPI and Illamasqua have the most longest wearing formulas iv tried to date hands down, so i stocked up on some of these to get me by.I cant think of a cheap dupe for this one. I think soft mauves that look good on my skin are hard to find. Most mauves make my hands look dull , but this one is not that! Can you guys think of a dupe for this one?

* Its much more pinker in real life. My camera refuses to capture it!

*The actual polish is more pink than this. I dont know, the sunlight does wierd things to this Lucky Lavender

Verdict: A

Price: Rs 480/- on Urbantouch.com

Recommendation: OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender is more a pinkish mauve polish with a creme finish thats just a delight to apply. It took me to coats to opaque ( but i put 3 anyway), its long wearing, chip resistant and super smooth in application. I wish the finish were a tad more glossy like other OPI’s but otherwise im not complaining!

It really is vaishnavi!

That’s so lovely. But I’m not sure if I can pull it off. I never feel comfortable in mauves.
Oh btw, the bottles that priced so in Europe are huge. They are mostly sold in 500ml or 1 litre bottles which you can never finish up :P

Hi Mehak
Recently , I have been following your blog. Great job, you are doing, indeed :) … And I guess, not sure, you are soon to get married, Wish You all good luck. Sorry if am wrong ;)
One thing I would like to know, does OPI nail lacquers, give yellow stains on nails or do they dry them? As staying in AC at a stretch for 9-10 hours make my nails really dry, specially nails of my feet. Would like to know some good quality brand nail shades.
Also a good hand and foot cream, mine are too dry :(
And , definately you look so pretty and beautiful :)


mehak June 13, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Dear Paromita,
They definitely dont give yellow stains. But as for drying them, if you wear nailpolish fpr extended periods f time without ever giving them a rest, they will get dry and yellow no matter what polish you use! Also- the nail polish remover u use also matters..try the flormar polish removr its amazing.
Vaseline has a new foot cream which has really great moisture!!!

Thats a nice shade..Hey Mehak, if you want long staying ones..try Avon Prowear Nail Enamels if you can lay your hands on..they are the longest wearing of all I have used till date including Illasmasqua..
