After so many spring and cutesy polishes, it’s time for something to take you to the dark side! (Hey, maybe you’re going to sport some anti-Valentine’s-Day nails, right?)
OPI Never Have Too Mani Friends from the Hello Kitty Collection takes a manicure into the Witching Hour with a glossy jet black that practically cackles with delight!
At first glance, OPI Never Have Too Mani Friends may seem like the black sheep (hehe or black cat, in this case), but it certainly belongs in the Hello Kitty Collection.
If you’re creating Hello Kitty nail art, the black will come in handy for outlining and adding details. Black nail polish is a staple for any nail art.
Instead of nudes and soft shades, sometimes, I like to use black nail polish as a palate cleanser. And it doesn’t have to be during Hallowe’en or the colder months. (I’ve been known to sport black even in the dead of summer because a great dark manicure excites me as much as a bright one.)

OPI Never Have Too Mani Friends Review
Never Have Too Mani Friends by OPI is your standard beautiful black that paints midnight onto your tips and makes you feel gothic, even if you’re wearing corporate attire with a bright colour combination! 😉
There’s something about a black manicure that I love so much, regardless of the season and trends. Black is timeless. It goes with almost everything in my wardrobe, and it’s dramatic.
Even if you don’t go full throttle and paint all your nails black, this polish comes in handy for so many nail-art designs. It’s a staple.
Shiny and smooth, Never Have Too Mani Friends by OPI is exceptionally creamy. It’s a traditional black nail polish that doesn’t have any glitter or special effects. It’s simple, yet it’s so stunning!
When you remove it, it comes off without any hassles, and it doesn’t stick to your cuticles in an annoying way. You can get it off completely and cleanly.
Application & Formula
Yes, the formula is wonderful! I only needed to use two coats to get full coverage, and the application was effortless! It’s everything I expect from a black lacquer.
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
Although I’m excited about the vivid spring nail polishes, a great black will always win my heart over because it has a seductive quality built-in. Ohh-la-la!
If you’re like me and get a thrill from super-dark nails from time to time, OPI Never Too Mani Friends will be right up your manicure alley, too.
Do you sport dark nails in the spring and summer? What’s your favourite black nail polish? Were you surprised to see a black nail polish in the OPI Hello Kitty Collection?
I’m alwys on the lookout for another great black nail polish. It’s a must for nail art and sometimes you just want to go to the dark side, ya know? LOL Thanks for sharing this one with us. I think I’ll have to snag a bottle on my next shopping trip. Looks very vampy on you btw. 🙂
You’ll enjoy it. A black polish never gets neglected in most nail enthusiasts’ wardrobe! 😉
That is a jaw dropping, Perfect glossy Pitch black color. Amazing
Whenever I see a vampy polish, I think of you because you love these kind of shades! 🙂
I love wearing a dark manicure in the summer! Everyone is wearing neons or bright pastel colours (which we know actually exist! lol) and I think an awesome dark manicure kind of anchors my clothes from looking too bright and crazy. 🙂 Besides, it never clashes!
YES! Finally someone else who understands the joy of black nail polish in the warmer months! 🙂
I also love wearing neons in the winter, which is the opposite of what a lot of people sport. I think it’s because there are so many dark colours in the colder season, so I need a polish pick-me-up. Also, neons POP against the snow!
Yes I was surprised that black was in a Hello Kity collection. Might have to pick this up because of your great review!
When I first saw the black, I thought, “It must be Hello Kitty’s gothic side!” It’s a great black – shiny and smooth. Can’t go wrong with this one.
I love to sport dark nails whenever lol. In my opinion you can never have too many black or white polishes in your collection!
Hehe, totally agree with you on all the points. 🙂
P.S. Have you come across a one-coat white polish?
