I love OPI polishes, but you really missed it on this one! I wanted a pretty pink for summer, and instead I received a beige color with some mauve, no pink at all, it’s a horrid color.
The polish was fine but the shipping charge is outrageous. Will never order again.
what I wanted in a timely manner
This is an interesting shade. Looks like a nude brownish pink in the bottle. On the nails it looks like a light brown taupe. This is a different type of color then I would normally wear. When I first put it on I wasn't too sure but it really grew on me. It made me look like a sophisticated lady. I did notice it chipped quickly though. And it took three coats to look solid
This is nice -one of Opi's better consistencies, and an understated shade that works...well enough, for me. But, overall, kind of underwhelming. It seemed to take ages to completely cure -24h later it was still easy to dent (I had yet to apply a top coat. For some reason, it took three coats, and not the two most have mentioned here, for opacity. I'm fair -always the lightest or second lightest foundation shade -and it doesn't look so much neutral/nude on me as it does a dark taupe. Other cool-toned pale sorts might feel like this is the polish equivalent of ye olde "suntan" pantyhose -too dark and just not quite right...L'Oreal's "Doutzen's Nude" has a better formula, and is very, very similar -switched next to each other on white plastic it was hard to see a difference (except the L'Oreal went down in one smooth streak and the OPI pooled off to one side -I only use two coats of the L'Oreal, which is silly-easy to apply). On the nails, "Doutzen's Nude" is slightly lighter, and more mauve, less brown, than "Tickle My France-y." I tend to either wear stuff like rainbow-hued multicoloured nails OR "ladylike" conservative shades with little in between, so had high hopes for this as a new favourite for the "conservative" box o' polish. No dice; will keep buying the L'Oreal. On the plus side: apart from it being prone to dents and taking too long to fully dry, the stuff lasts. After four days, there's only a *tiny* chip on an index finger, so small that I really had to hunt for it. (Two coats Essie "Millionails" underneath, gel-type topcoat, unfortunately unbranded, widely sold in Canadian Dollaramas in a black bottle with three other mini bottles of polish -give the polishes to a little girl if you don't like the colours or whatever, and just buy the set for the amazing top coat!)
