This is GORGEOUS! It is an apricot or honey toned champagne pearl. Under some lights at night I pick up more apricot, while in daytime I see more caramel tinged pale pink all with a luster of pearls, but the beigey pink kind of pearls. A neutral nudeish shade with loads of life. This is my new default setting when I want more than the sheer pretty "my nails but better" look of Bubble Bath but I don't want the heavy creamy nude of Dulce de Leche. I've got it on now, second day, not even showing tip wear let alone any chipping. I've been cleaning house, washing and chopping up vegetables, cooking, dishes, typing and dealing with a dry itchy winter skin that I'm scratching a lot so it should at least show tip wear. (edited to add, day 6, no chips, tiny little tip wear on my thumb where I dug into a cardboard box, been giving this polish a serious workout just waiting to see how long it goes before a fail. I have NOT even put another top coat on! This stuff is AMAZING!)(Edited AGAIN to add: DAY 8: Finally 2 barely visible tiny chips and a tiny bit of tip wear on 2 more fingers but still really presentable. This stuff is cast iron! It should be called Ever Ready Bunny Honey because it just won't quit!!!! I am removing it today because my nails are outgrowing the polish, there is a big gap above my cuticles now, and I want another shade. I still haven't put a second coat of my Sally Hansen top coat the Insta Dri no chip stuff and the shine is still shining on.)Back to original review:I have it on over 2 coats of Nail Envy Original, and topped off with Sally Hansen's Insta Dri Anti Chip top coat that I love.2 coats. Even with one, it covers.I rolled on both coats thickly to avoid any streaking because that can happen with a pearlized finish, but this worked well. No brush marks, covers evenly.As another reviewer said, this covers in one coat, and it just looks a tiny bit nicer with 2, but unlike some pearly or shimmery polishes, IT DOESN"T CHANGE COLOUR from the first coat to the second. What you see the first coat, is what you'll see with 2 coats only richer.This is an ideal polish for me, because it's so neutral but has life to it so I can wear it with anything, no matter what colour, and unlike a nude cream it doesn't look boring or a little bit dirty.
Meh. Neutral colors are tricky and this one didn't work for me. It's a sheer champagne-beige with a pearl, almost frost finish. A little dated and 80s-looking. Extremely unoriginal. And way too sheer for my liking.But the formula was smooth and easy to work with. And the color is pretty even if it's not my cup of tea.If you're looking for a ladylike, unoffending beige this might be perfect for you. But it wasn't for me and I wouldn't buy it again.
This shade just doesn't do it for me. I think it might be a personal issue, but it reminds me of the color of nail polish my grandma always used to wear! It's a like a taupe champagne with not enough pink to it and while it has no shimmer it has a lot of shine almost too much for the color. I think it would be better with more pink or some discernible shimmer, but for me it just looks "old lady." It's also not super flattering against my warm, pale skin. This is more of a cool-toned shade.The polish formula is that high-quality OPI standard, which goes on smoothly, dries quickly and without bubbles, and lasts nicely. You need three coats to get opaque with this shade.
This polish is a very pearly nude beige, a full on cheap looking frosty color. This is one of those polished that you can see brush marks in when you have applied. I don't know what possessed me to buy this as it isn't an attractive color when on, in fact looks very dated. It is opaque in 2 coats but shows every mistake in application. Wouldn't buy this color again but will mix with other polishes to tone down the pearl effect.
Hate it on my hands. Ugly gold. Love it on my toes hoever. So if you bought it and decide not to like it, still try 2 coats on your toes! Somehow it looks great down there, lol. I sent a bottle to my mom and she almost tossed it out, and I talked her into the toe thing, and she too loves it there. Weird... Lasts a loooong time on toes! :-)
