Today's pink is OPI Princesses Rule! As you will see by the level of polish in the bottle, this is a fave of mine. I wear it pretty frequently. A little less often now that I have branched out into other brands and colours. But when I am craving a pretty, pretty pink with some shimmah, I go right back to this polish. I love this colour so much that I ordered a new bottle from Amazon, the other day. I do not want to be without this polish. Ever. lol
OPI Princesses Rule! is a delicate blue based pale pink sheer packed with a beautiful silver white glass fleck. This polish is gentle and and in your face. Demure and flashy. Definitely something I can appreciate. :D I applied two coats and topped it with Seche Vite. There is VNL, as this polish is pretty sheer. In my opinion, it is meant to be a little sheer. I find that if I apply more than two coats to try to get opacity, the sparkle and brilliance of the glass fleck overwhelms the delicate pink. To me, two coats is just perfect. This polish is also beautiful layered over other colours.
Okay, now for pictures. They are, as always, clickable to make big, if you are so inclined. :)
There is something just so undefinable and magical about this polish. In my not so humble opinion, this is one of the prettiest pink polishes ever made.
The formula is OPI-tastic. The Pro Wide brush lays this beautiful formula right down where it belongs and it stays there. What little cleanup I did was just fussbudget refining, because I am utterly unable to leave well enough alone. lol It dries quickly. Even faster when topped with a quick dry topcoat like Seche Vite. I have nothing but gushing for this polish. It is that lovely.
This is a terrific emergency manicure polish. It has happened to all of us. You have to get to work or have an appointment and you hurry to shower, get gorgeous and get dressed and then you look down and your nails look like dog barf. What do you do? Grab remover, get the old polish off, slick on a coat of fast dry basecoat, then one coat of Princesses Rule! Blow on it for a minute or so and you can grab your keys and your handbag and run out the door. The manicure won't be opaque and it won't last too long but it will get you through your day with dignity and neat nails. I have done this more times than I can count with this polish and it has never let me down. :)
Do you own this polish? Love it? Not so much? Think I am off my marbles? lol Please do share.
Thank you so much for popping in. Have a great Wednesday, whether you go pink or no and may your polish never bubble.
