Ever buy a polish that becomes a staple in your collection? A polish that, no matter the day, time of year, circumstances is pretty, appropriate and easy to apply, quick to dry and versatile, as well?
For me, that polish is OPI Hearts and Tarts from a collection that was released in 2007 or 2008. This milky, slightly pink toned beige sheer jelly with a beautiful hot pink flash shimmer works on freshly shortened nubbins, is beautiful on long nails, makes a fabulous all over colour for a French or American style manicure. I have even used this polish on days when I had two minutes to get out the door and realized that my existing polish looked like garbage but I didn't have the time to do a full on polish job. I can remove the old polish, grab Hearts and Tarts, slop on one coat, let it dry for one minute, grab my keys and run out the door. My nails look softly shiny and neat until I can get home and polish them properly.
I am on my second bottle of this polish and am beginning to think about bottle number three. Yep. I like this polish that much.
I had to file my nails down, again and was craving something soft and pale and delicate on my nails so I grabbed Hearts and Tarts. This is two coats topped with Seche Vite. It isn't streaky. Those are my demon ridges.

Just look at that shimmer! It is so delicate yet so beautiful You should see it in the sun. :D
OPI Hearts and Tarts is a beautiful polish with a stunning formula. This polish applies like a dream, being neither too thick or too thin, it flows softly off that fabulous Pro Wide brush onto the nail, sits sweetly where it is placed and softly mounds, making the nails look rounded and curved and squishy. This polish doesn't streak or drag, it never runs or floods my cuticles or bubbles. I think I picked up my cleanup brush once, doing this manicure. Hearts and Tarts dries fast and it is, for a sheer jelly quite long lived. I wore this for two days, then did nail art and wore it another two and it still looked nearly flawless when I took it off.
OPI Hearts and Tarts is, if I am not mistaken part of their core collection. It is pretty easy to find. I see it when I am cruising Amazon for polish, all the time and I have seen it at Ulta, too.
Do you own this beautiful polish? Do you have a go to, never fail, easy to apply and wear polish that you reach for again and again? One that you have to replace, now and again, you use it and love it so much? Please share, I'd love to hear about it.
Thank you so much for popping in. Have a wonderful day and may your polish never bubble.
