O.P.I Ridge Filler Review , Purpose & Directions


O.P.I Ridge Filler

In a word, it’s simply a boon to me.  Wondering why?  This O.P.I Ridge Filler is a perfect solution for weak, damaged nails that have a rough, uneven surface. I know, you will say you can always buff and smooth them out, but, too much buffing is not good for your nails in the long run- it wears them out. My case is somewhat similar- too much buffing and now I have these weak nails with an uneven surface

Well, after some searching and researching I landed up with this amazing find from O.P.I and yes, I will say, it’s a great product. A perfect solution for weak, peeling, uneven and rough nails. You might just say that applying nail polish is a perfect solution to the above mentioned problems well- true to some extent but this product gives you something more. No wonder, O.P.I calls these “Classic Nail Essentials’

OPI Ridge Filler Directions:-

  • Recommendation: Smoothes nails for a more even lacquer application. OPI Ridge Filler fills those small ridge lines that some nails have from dryness. It gives nails a smooth glassy finish, so that nail polish applies evenly and looks great.

Apply OPI Ridge Filler before using base coat on nails, then proceed with nail polish and top coat

  • Ingredients: Not mentioned

OPI Ridge Filler Purpose:-

My take on the product: as I already said that I have weak nail and some uneven (by uneven I mean the nail surface is not very smooth when I touch it) nail surface, I found this to be a boon. It has a natural whitish color which turns out just your nail’s natural color and dries to a matt finish. If you look at your nails, no one will be able to tell you that you are wearing anything on them- just your plain, natural nails. It dries to a perfect matt finish. But, here lies the magic- your nails will look flawless- even and smooth! Yes! It’s true. My friend even complimented that my nails have improved a lot J-though I did not reveal the secret to her – devil me!!!

(After single coat application)

What’s more, one single coat is fine- you will not need a second one, mostly because you will be wearing two coats of polish on top of that- no point layering and wasting product. What I have noticed is that this O.P.I Ridge Filler works amazingly well as a base too- the nail colors come out amazingly well- somewhat opaque. And, if you are coupling it with an O.P.I polish- you can be sure that your polish won’t chip in the next 15 days ( but then again I don’t do any household work) and if you have this on your toe, it lasted me a good 21-22 days…yes, believe me! You will fall in love with your perfectly manicured/pedicured hands and feet <3

The brush is normal like any other O.P.I nail brush and is good enough to cover your nails in one go.

What Iike about O.P.I Ridge Filler:-

  • Perfect solution for weak, brittle, peeling nails

What I don’t like about OPI Ridge Filler:-

  • You will have to have a real fast hand- dries really fast
  • Don’t apply 2 coats- it will become patchy, uneven and streaky– mostly because it dries fast
  • While using keep your ceiling fan off- it will dry up the product
  • Before using u need to shake the bottle really well as a kind of yellow fluid separates and a white viscous liquid settles down.
  • While removing, you will need some extra polish remover
  • Best to keep off the cuticle- its dries there and gets collected
  • Yes, no ingredients mentioned

Recommended: Oh.. do I need to say that now? I will keep purchasing it! A must have for me now. You must be thinking with so many cons, why should I repurchase it? Because if you notice the cons, it’s normal with any polish I guess. So, I am overlooking that for sure.

  • Rating: A perfect 5

Love it/ Leave it: <3 it
