OPI Nail Lacquer - A Rose At Dawn... Broke By Noon 0.5 oz - #NLV11
A gleaming, gambling, rambling rose.
I love this color with my skin tone, but I agree with the other reviewers who point out how easily flaws show with the shimmery/ metallic finish. Just like my other OPI polishes this shade is has a great texture and nice wide brush. Because of the shimmer you have to load the brush with a large dollop of polish to avoid streaks and bumps. Applying this polish is a bit of a pain, but once I have it on I can't stop admiring my nails. I don't think I'd buy this color again, but I'd love to find a creamy replacement in the same shade.
OPI's A-Rose at Dawn . . . Broke by Noon is a bright medium pink/rose polish with a very, very frosty finish (think 1970s/1980s). This is a beautiful color but quite-dated finish. The formula was very good not too thin and not gloopy at all; however, you will get brush lines with this one and when dry, the finish will show every flaw, dimple, and divot in your nails. Two coats makes for opaque bottle color. I have tried this color a couple of times and have either removed it or covered it up both times. (China Glaze Sex on the Beach makes for a nice frost-killer and still leaves the pink color). While I love the shade of pink in this, the frost finish makes it extremely out of date and I would not buy it again.
I dont know what it is about this polish as I love pink but everytime I have worn it I have not been pleased and ended up taking it off quite quickly or covering it in a glitter like Princesses Rule.I think it is because it is frosty so I feel it is a bit dated. It was first produced in 2003 as part of the Las Vegas collection so this could be why. I seem to like it more on my toes than on fingersIt is a crimson pink metalic rose and it does apply quite streakyAlthough the shade is very pretty in the bottle it is not my favourite pink on my nails. Cream based pinks look younger I think
This color looks beautiful in the bottle a berry pink color with a frost finish. I'm not crazy about it AND I'm not that upset that i didn't like it as much as i thought, it's just okay. You can really see the streaky-ness and lines of the brush when my nails were dry, that kinda bugged me. (OPI has always had such great quality for me and this wasn't up to par) I'll try and use up the bottle but I won't buy a second bottle of this shade.
