Or, OPI in this case. I was looking in the mall before my friend came to visit me and before I picked up my Sephora polish I posted two entries ago. I went into one of the hair salons that sell OPI. There was an abundance of colors to choose from. I loved them all, but couldn’t decide on one. But you know what? I didn’t buy them. I don’t think I was allowed to “test” them because I simply asked if I could, and the woman waved me over to her and she tested it out on a sheet of paper? Yeah, I’m not buying something that’s tested out on a sheet of paper, which resembles nothing like a fingernail. Frig that.
For my own finger nails I usually like something modest, and not too BLAM BLAM BAM “out there”. I reserve those colors for the tootsies. I was looking for a nice sheer pink. But not sheer enough that I need four coats for it to build up. I want a nice pink color where I can apply two coats and you can still KIND OF see the white tips of my finger nails, but not really. I don’t really like the Sephora color I have on my nails now, as it’s TOO pink. Not a nice shade of subtle pink/white/sheer. I have another polish from Sally Hansen, but you need 4 coats of the darn thing as it looks baby pink in the bottle, but comes out clear. It’s friggen garbage and it ‘crackles’ after a few days. I think it’s mainly because I apply so much bloody polish to try and make it a WEE bit opaque than it is. But I don’t want that. I want something that’s genuinely opaque and doesn’t require too much time or effort.
So, that being said — does anyone have any colors to suggest? (Reminder: light white–ish pinks, but not ugly light pinks. If that even make sense!) It doesn’t have to be OPI either. Just something that I can get in CANADA.
