To say we are excited about the newest OPI Gwen Stefani collection is an understatement, we’re elated! All of the shades look fantastic but the most interesting in our opinion is the silver chrome OPI Push And Shove. This outstanding shade, like OPI Liquid Sands, could result in a whole new generation of chrome polishes.
Let’s find out what is so special about OPI Push And Shove – read our full review below.
Set includes: Full size OPI Push & Shove silver chrome lacquer, 15 ml and a mini bottle of OPI Lay Down That Base nail base, 3.75 ml.
Formula: A fast drying, 3-free.
Application: Easy to apply with a signature extra-wide OPI brush. Goes on with streaks but evens as it dries to a smooth and even finish. It’s thick so you may find 1 coat is enough, we applied 2 coats in the pictured example. The foil effect finish accentuates nail surface imperfections so we recommend buffing your nails lightly before applying the base and then Push and Shove. This polish looks best on perfectly smooth nails.
Finish: Intense, mirror like silver chrome. No top coat required*.
Wearability: 1 day to 2 days maximum.
Nail Art: OPI Push and Shove is good as a base for nail art but keep in mind top coat doesn’t make this polish look good (read ‘Extra Notes’ below).
Overall Impression: OPI Push And Shove is a stunning silver chrome nail polish that is almost identical to foil look. It’s doesn’t last long and requires perfectly smooth nail surface. It’s beautiful, but due to it’s tricky formula, some may find it disappointing. However, if you’re looking for a stand out silver polish, have perfectly even nail surface and don’t mind it lasting 2 days maximum, then you’ll love it.
*Extra Notes: Instructions for application specifically state “do not use top coat”. We confirm the same, do NOT use top coat with OPI Push and Shove. As our experiment revealed, a top coat destroys the chrome finish completely.
Availability: OPI Push And Shove Chrome Set – available from January 2014 online, from $9 here. In Australia – $19.95, from David Jones and selected pharmacies.
