Sephora by OPI - I'm Wired

Hey everyone!

I'm kind of disappointed because I haven't been doing nail art and I really miss it (even if it's only been a few weeks). I have a job interview tomorrow which sprung me by surprise on Sunday, plus I'll be spending time with my girlfriend this week, so I really won't have the time to do it. Oh well... expect more swatches from me this week though lol.

Anyways, today I'm showing you Sephora by OPI's I'm Wired. I picked this up during the Big Lots sale and it's a such a pretty color. This is my first time trying out the Sephora by OPI brand, so I was excited to try this out.

I'm Wired is a bright pinkish coral creme. If anything, I think this polish leans more on the pinkish side. This is three coats with a top coat. I purchased this polish at Big Lots for $1.80. 

I'm not completely sure if the OPI buyout sale is still going on there, but it's not on the weekly ad. When I went there, they still had a lot of polishes so it's best to check your local Big Lots and see if they still have them.

The formula seemed fine, but when applying it on my nails it was a bit streaky for me. This could have easily been two coats, but I found a lot of streaks and bald spots even within the third coat. It's something that I can deal with, but it's still annoying. One positive is that this dried really fast in between coats. 

Also, the color is much brighter on the nail than the bottle. It almost looks like a neon pink in some lights on the nail. In the bottle, I'm Wired looks way lighter. I still love the color, but I do wish it was a little bit lighter.

In all honesty, I'm kind of disappointed with this polish, but I like it. I'm only saying this because I had high hopes since this brand is made by OPI, so I was expecting grand results. I bought a couple more Sephora by OPI polishes, so I'm hoping those will be of better quality than this one.

The formula and the streakiness kind of ruined it for me, but it's a lovely color for spring or summer. I think this polish will mostly be going on my toes for the summer (so I don't have to see the streaks lol), but I can also put it on my nails as well a couple more times. Overall, I love and hate this polish.

What do you think of I'm Wired? 

Thanks for reading!


  1. I love coral polishes and this looks amazing on your nails!

  2. I hope your job interview went/goes well! $1.80 is such a good price for this polish too! It really suits you and is such a nice colour. It's a shame it's a bit streaky though, I agree you wouldn't expect to be because it's an OPI nail polish!

    1. It did go well, thank you. ^^ Yeah, I was disappointed by the streaking mainly. I had high hopes for the brand, but at least I didn't spend full price on it. Originally, those retail for about $9.

  3. wow this polish looks soo lovely :)
