      Comments about OPI Nail Lacquer Thinner:

      It was easy to use, however a bit tedious. The product comes out one drop at a time, so a lot of squeezing is involved. The instructions say use 2-3 drops. I had to use 40-100+ drops per bottle to get my O.P.I. glitter polishes (Katy Perry collection glitters) back to the normal consistency. I don't mind having to use so many drops, I just wished there was a faster way to dispense the thinner. I've only tried this on "Last Friday Night" and "Teenage Dream". One of them was almost completely dried out, and it took all day for it to reconstitute. I was skeptical at first, but it did work! I'm really happy that I can use these polishes again. Also despite having to use so many drops, I haven't even used up 1/4 of the bottle yet. Overall I would recommend it. It is a time consuming task if you are bringing ~5 year old/nearly dried out/super thick and goopy bottles back to life, but SO worth it! I haven't tried it on other polishes yet so I'm not sure how well it works with other brands and other types of polish.

          So.. I threw away about 4 shades of O.P.I. due to the polish being very goopy and thick. However, I just bought this stuff and it worked perfect on one of my favorite colors that was getting sticky. Now it's applying like new! Why didn't I know about this a long time ago?!

            Comments about OPI Nail Lacquer Thinner:

            Yes, some thinners change the restored consistency, particularly the top coat. I love OPI products and the thinner is the same reliable quality. Since they change colors so often, many of my favorites are discontinued and I want to keep using them. OPI could just force me to throw them away and buy a new color. But they keep the customer in mind!

              Great for thinning out base coat, and nail polish when it gets to the bottom of the bottle and is thick.

                    I used it to thin OPI nail strengthener which has not seemed to work as directions suggest. May work for regular nail polish but that is not what I needed it for.

                        I needed to thin my OPI Top Coat that had got a bit gluggy and one of my OPI glitters was drying out too so I thought I would give this product a go. It worked really well although I did have to use more than the suggested 2-3 drops before it worked. But the bottle is so big even after using it on both bottles it's hardly made a dent in it. It's a great product.

                              Great product for the price. I've thinned out quite a few of my polishes and it looks as though I haven't used any of the thinner in the bottle. This stuff should last a very long time! It works very well.
