Palate Cleanser

Hello there, kittens.

I don't know about you, but sometimes I just need a little light episode, a palate cleanser, if you will in between manicures done in the deep, rich shades I tend to favour. Sometimes I just want to wear pink. Soft, sheer, glass fleck glittery pink.


OPI Princesses Rule! One of my all time favourite OPI polishes. I normally only apply two coats, but today I applied three. I don't think it like it as well with more than two coats. After two coats, it seems to lose that soft, dancing, ethereal, shimmery quality that makes this polish so special. Interesting experiment. Next time, I will keep it to two coats, tho.

I am beginning to run low on this polish, I wear it so often. I definitely need to obtain a backup bottle. :D

Okay, time for my now customary photo dump. These pictures were taken indoors with flash, without flash, in direct sun and in shade.

Topped with Seche, by the way. :D

So, do you have Princesses Rule!? Do you love it? Are you sick of me posting pics of this polish and raving about it? Are you aware that it gets colder than a witch's lunch bucket in Arizona? It never got above 40 degrees, today. I am frozen. Stiff. And I need to go turn my fireplace back on so I can thaw my fingers so I can type and use my touchpad and stop my teeth from chattering.

Thank you so much for popping in. Have a great evening. Stay warm and may your polish never bubble.


  1. AWesome color on you. I do a similar thing. I will do rounds of my dark/vampy type colors and then need a "cleansing" and will go for a sheer light color. Beautiful mani.

  2. I doubt for a very long time if I really want this one or not. But after reading this.. yes.. I want it again.. so it is back on my wishlist! :D

  3. i love princesses rule :D its such a gorgeous colour :) especially this time of year :D I usually like putting alpine snow as a base so its more opaque in 2 coats i dunno why but i hate seeing my nail line through polishes, theres so many sheer pinks i love and using alpine snow as a base has definitely made me use them more :D


  4. *Sigh* This is sooo pretty and princess worthy (hence the name)! I loveee it but I can't believe I haven't heard of it until seeing this post... Ive been missing out!

  5. He he, I am officially an evil enabler. Gotta say, I kinds like it. :D

    Diava, I never thought of layering this over white. I might have to try that. I don't really mind VNL when wearing a sheer that is supposed to be sheer. It is polish that is supposed to be opaque showing nail line that irritates me. :)

    Tasha, you totally need this polish. It is still widely available. :)
