After trying and being put off by a few drugstore nail polish brands before (including the regular Petites line), I’ve been sticking to my Sephora by OPI’s. Luckily, however, one day while I was browsing my local Rite Aid beauty section (is there anyone else who finds that therapeutic?), a small bottle of pretty grayish taupe polish caught my eye. It turned out to be a higher end Petites line called Color Fever.
There are some very interesting colors in the line (although many of them are hard to find in stores), and in terms of quality both of the polishes I own are on a par with OPI. For the sake of comparison, the brush is slightly narrower and shorter than that of the brush that comes with a bottle of Sephora by OPI.
These are creamy opaque shades that go on beautifully and last a decent amount of time (up to a week with a top coat).
The Petites Color Fever polishes are more expensive than an average drugstore polish ($3.99 for 0.25 oz, but that’s versus close to $9 for 0.5 oz for Sephora by OPI), but I would still prefer these over OPI polishes — really, how often do we use up even half of a full-sized nail polish before it dries?
