OPI Nail Lacquer - Pamplona Purple 0.5 oz - #NLE50
A pampering, precious plum.
Nice color but I thought it was boring. From OPI's 2009 Spain Collection (but I think it's core now), Pamplona Purple is a slightly dusty mid-toned shade of plummy purple with a creme finish. The shade itself is borderline conservative, you could probably get away with wearing this in an office setting if that's a concern. Not my cup of tea exactly.Excellent formula though. Almost a one-coater and very smooth application!But I didn't love the color and I wouldn't buy this one again.
Pamplona Purple is a gorgeous mid-toned purple with warm undertones. It has a creme finish and the formula is lovely, it is smooth and creamy with a great consistency and is opaque in two coats. It has great staying power and is very chip resistant. This colour would look great on all skin tones and, in my opinion, it would look particularly beautiful on tan, olive or golden skin tones. This is a gorgeous colour for all year round and I would recommend it to anyone who loves purple polish.
Wow great colour. I picked this up in the discount bin for $1.89 at a local salon. Wasn't sure if I'd love it, as it appears as a fairly ho-hum, muted, creamy fushia colour in the bottle, but I love purples and at that price i couldn't lose. Just tried an application and can say it's messy and a little hard to work with but worth it. I did one coat overall, then a touch up for the most transparent or uneven nails. I found I had to cap my nails with this colour because it really emphasizes any whiteness of your natural nail showing under the tips and on the edges (google this colour for images and you'll see what I mean), and it really shows any unevenness or mistakes. It's thick and the brush is a bit too big for the thickness of this colour and it was hard to get precise application evenly near the cuticles and sides of my nails. I have a few errors to clean up now. Think next time I'll do broad strokes with the OPI brush, then switch to a disposable, finer brush for the other areas. The colour applies in a dark burgundy wine colour that i love.I gave this product a low mark for packaging because I have had to toss more OPI colours than any other brand because of the propensity of their caps to get cemented to the bottle and I'm not a careless user. Even trying locking pliers can't budge the cap once this happens, and you realize the bottle could break before the cap budges, so it's a toss. It's made me so paranoid of this happening again that I periodically wipe the bottle neck with my fingers to make sure it is clean, while I'm doing an application. I had to with this colour, and so that made things extra messy (can't use a tissue with colour drying on your nails!). This is the first regular nail colour I've used in a year or so, because i normally use my Nailene gel kit, but the price and colour are worth the fling! If this chips in 2 days or less, I may permanently disavow on any more regular nail polishes.Update: Took off a lippie. It chipped in 3 days. Removed it and am mostly wearing Dior Nail Glow now. Will probably stick to my gel and other polishes when I want colour. Not sure if I will wear this one again though. Glad it was under 2 bucks!
I love this color of purple! It is a medium red based purple cream. It goes on smoothly and is opaque in two coats. It looks fab with fair skin on fingers and toes. I recommend this shade to anyone that likes purple nail polish. I will definitely repurchase.
