Anyway, I decided to swatch a bunch of OPI pinks I borrowed some time ago. That's right. Pink polishes on alizarine claws! And you thought you'd never see the day... But hell didn't freeze over, the alizarine only turned 30.
I Pink I Love You. Sorry, no sun that day. Medium pink with different sized multicolored iridescent glitter. This one I got over at the nail tech's place while she was touching up my gel enhancements. It was sole punishment, since I showed up wearing OPI Fiercely Fiona. She was so appalled that she decided to do a color she knew was my antithesis. She dared me to wear it while walking home at least. And you know what? I was still wearing it the next day... And liked it.
Kinky In Helsinki. Borderlining berry I guess. Not something I'd normally wear. Yet.
La Paz-itively Hot Matte. Has been on my secret wishlist for a while now. I like this kind of hot pink. Hot pink lemmings are Ange's fault. Liked wearing this one. Liked applying it. Though, I do not own one single polish from the Matte collection. They just weren't all that, so I never bothered. Especially since they're infamous for craptastic wear.
La Paz-itively Hot Matte with topcoat. None of us can resist doing that! Although very pretty, I didn't like this polish this way. The topcoat transforms it into any damn hot pink. Or is this the color you refer to as fuchsia? I'm ignorant in this color field.
DS Perfection. Sultry stuff. Gorgeous, but made me feel like a granny. Wouldn't dry.
Valen-Time For Love. Another one I suppose is fuchsia, perhaps. Cute. But not really alizarine.
And this last one is for my friend Cammi...
Are You a Movie Star? The insanely glittery Asian special. (If you're not in East Asia you'll have to swap for it.) Sheer pink jelly packed with glitter. Severely hard to apply. Very thick and gluey, and as always I have a terrible problem getting the larger glitter to disperse all over the nail plate, and instead just manage to put it down close to the cuticle. I know this polish is kind of funny. But that is where it ends. I like it for the pure novelty factor only, and I don't think I would actually ever wear this, not even layered on top of another polish. But I treasure it anyway.
There you go. I just kind of vomited all over my blog. How did you like seeing pink polishes on my nails? And are you a pink polish person?
