OPI Fair Dinkum Pinkum

sadly, i have to interrupt the Finger Paints flakie series for a simple OPI swatch. today has been crazy! it's already 11pm, so i'm barely even making this post while it's still Friday!

we're looking at OPI Fair Dinkum Pinkum, a light pink with glass flecks. i have to say, i'm really not a fan. it's got a watery, thin formula that took four coats to build up to opacity. however, it is thin enough that it was easy to keep air bubbles at bay... so, what you see that looks like air bubbles is actually the glass flecks. they are GORGEOUS in the bottle, but once on the nail they are very, very sparse and just give the polish a yucky look. i'm also going to show OPI Pink Friday from the 2012 Nicki Minaj collection.

four coats FDP topped with one coat Seche Vite.

and that was three coats of Pink Friday with one coat Seche Vite.

as you guys can see, PF is a saturated blue pink, while FDP is a neutral beige pink. if you only want one light pink, there is no contest in my opinion... Pink Friday is the way to go!

hopefully, we'll be back to the flakies tomorrow!

i just realized i'm talking about Pink Friday and it's... Friday! Ria :)
