OPI and Gwen Stefani Hey Baby: Swatch and Review

Oh yes. Hello you gorgeous, rich, hot pink polish, you. What is it about a vibrant, blue based, eye popping pink nail polish that just screams my name? I own... How many of them? And will buy how many more? Because I just can't help myself.

OPI Hey Baby is one of the Creme Gloss finish polishes from the new Gwen Stefani Collection polishes for Winter, 2013/14. This great pink is reminiscent of Gwen's pink hair and the dip dyed hem of her beautiful John Galliano wedding gown.

I applied two coats for this swatch, three on my ring nail, since my ridges were making a pain in the ass of themselves and topped it with Seche Vite. Then I decided to grab some of the black Swarovski Elements crystals from my Over and Over A-Gwen set and dress up my ring nail just for the fun of it. I love pink and black together and I think that these crystals add a touch of edge to this sweet pink polish.

As with most OPI polishes I own, the formula on this polish is gorgeous. Smooth, silky, biddable. This polish flowed off of the Pro Wide brush onto my nail and sat down where I placed it without running, pooling, streaking, dragging or bubbling. Dry time is respectable. This formula dries very shiny and pretty, I could have skipped the top coat but I like the additional kapow! that top coat gives so I always apply it, even when swatching.

Isn't OPI Hey Baby pretty? I know that it is not tat unusual but I think that I am craving bright, happy, fun stuff, right now and this is hitting the right note for me.
