OPI’s Charge It

I've had this for quite some time, but have only just gotten around to actually using it. This is part of their regular line, so it's not going to drop out of rotation any time real soon.

Charge It is rather similar to Zoya's Ziv - if you have one, you don't need both unless you're a roughened-metallic-gold-polish fanatic. Application was decent, and the polish stays in place for about two days of intense keyboarding before I start noticing tipwear. This polish takes a little bit more work to remove, but not as much work as a glitter or glass fleck polish.

This polish (and Zoya’s Ziv) is a little bit thinner. I’ve tried using it as a stamping polish for wider-patterned stamps, and the results weren’t the most fantastic. I don’t know if that’s because of the texturing, or because of the thickness - or lack thereof - of the polish.
