lol, strange mental picture:The Nail Geek said:Thinning breaks down the enamel and makes it pants.
Maybe the formulation has changed, but I used OPI polishes for a very long time in my salon, and found I had to thin them regularly. It was one of the factors that led me to make a change.Up To Scratch said:I use OPI polish and have OPI thinner at my workstation, just in case.
Can't say that it was worth buying the thinner tho - only had to use it a couple of times, in OPI glitter polish, and even then I could've got away without using it!
Would definitely only ever thin a polish with the same brand thinner that's been designed specifically for that polish too!

Maybe in another country is ok but in Thailand it is hot and opi polish and top coat do not like it here for sure .

Here is the logic --- when you stop to consider (the chemistry) that different colours use different pigments and different pigments have different characteristics.Carole Lindsay said:hi everyone! well my experience is the same as most others: once a polish needs thinning it will always need thinning! what i find strange is that it doesnt seem to be relevant to what make but what colour!!! i find that french whites always go thicker quicker (no matter what brand i use) and an odd colour here and there - what's the logic in that???
