            Comments about OPI Classic Nail Lacquer:

            I was using Susie Eats Sushi by the Sea Shore, but OPI stopped making that color. I noticed that Aphrodite's Pink Nightie is very close to my old color so bought that. I get so many compliments on this color (and my old color) it is amazing. I buy the polish at Ulta and take it to the nail salon with me. I love the way it goes on and dries quickly. It does not chip easily and I love the way my nails look!

                I did find it chipped easy the first time I used, but I applied another coat over it and did the top coat again and it lasted almost 2 weeks, I work in a doctor office and use alcohol to clean and still lasted!

                      This polish was part of an online order. Attempted to use it. Something was not right about the polish. Exchanged it at the Deerfield Beach, FL store. The second bottle was not right. Wrote to Ulta requesting my money back. Received a form email. I deserve to have my money reimbursed.

                          A:

                          OPI is a 3-free brand (no formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene). Although some OPI nail lacquer shades are indeed 5-free (no formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, camphor, formaldehyde resin), not all of their nail lacquer shades are, so OPI does not claim to be a 5-free brand.

                          Originally, Pompeii Purple was created for the 2004 Greek Isles Collection by OPI; this shade is now part of OPI Classic Collection.
