Review: OPI Ridge Filler

OPI's Ridge Filler! Where should I begin with this amazing product? Well first I should describe my nails. Before I got this product I would always notice tiny lines and dents when I painted my nails. I have very weak nails so if I layer on the coats of nail polish there is more of a chance of the paint chipping within a day or less. So when I first heard about a Ridge Filler abut two years ago I just HAD to put it on my birthday list. And that loved bottle I got for my 19th birthday has been the same one I use with EVERY SINGLE manicure for over a year and a half. I had to thin it out once a few months ago, but other than that I don't have any downsides. I apply this after OPI's Natural Nail Base Coat and before any nail lacquer. I used to apply it as a base coat, and I haven't seen any difference between using a real base coat first or using the ridge filler as a base coat. It smooths out all my lines and ridges and I really notice when I don't use it. It doesn't have any strong smell, and if you ask me, it has less of a scent than all my other polishes. Although I haven't tried any other ridge fillers, I would highly recommend this one. Unless of course you were born with perfectly smooth nails! Haha, don't we wish?
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars and two thumbs up!

The middle nail on the two above pictures has ridge filler and one coat of OPI's Miami Beet. The two side nails have just one coat of polish

Left nail: one coat of polish, right nail: ridge filler and one coat of polish.

Pinky and middle finger: Ridge filler and one coat of polish. Index and right finer: one coat of polish.

Bare nail

One coat of Ridge filler. You can really see the difference!


  1. It would be nice to see a picture with and without the ridge filler. I've wondered whether they work or not.

  2. I will get on that! Check back soon to see the comparison!
