It's been a while since I've mentioned anything OPI... I'm not really one for branded cosmetics or nail polishes, mainly because they have too much of a hefty of a price tag $$$$ for me.
Yesterday, I was actually looking for a bright feminine pink to use as a nail art base so I've steered towards OPI You're Such A Kabuki Queen. Sadly, when I finished painting ma' nails, I've realised that the colour itself isn't so bright, so it wasn't what I was looking for.. Eeek.
However, I thought I'd share this as a NOTD post and the nail art post will just have to wait (I really can't wait to get to it and then share with you guys!).
As much as I love blue nail polishes, medium rosey-pinks like OPI's You're Such A Kabuki Queen, are probably the easiest colours for me to pull off. It's just a colour that's impossible to go wrong with so it's probably flattering to many skin tones too.
The application of this was perfect, like I'd expect it to be... $20 a bottle man! I'm wearing two coats in these swatches which is pretty opaque as you can tell. Also very glossy, may I add!
If you really like this nail colour, but don't want to fork out the moola for it.. I'm sure there are PLENTY of dupes or very similar colours around in the drugstores/lower end brands!
Could you recommend an affordable dupe to OPI You're Such A Kabuki Queen?
The closest nail polish I have to this is probably Models Prefer's Out Of The Office. However, I don't think they have a full-sized version of that included in their range... so that sucks! :(
