OPI You're Such A Kabuki Queen

Hey. Long time no OPI?

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!

Ah, love this colour on my nails. The colour is just so elegant and girly! I was considering to clear this from my nail polish collection, so I'm extremely glad that I didn't.

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! :(

OPI Nail Colour, $19.95, David Jones and leading salons.

  1. Gorgeous! I love glossy colours like these :)
    I don't own anything OPI, can't afford it XD

  2. This is such a pretty colour, I love OPI! One of the polishes I own by Sportsgirl is similar to that shade if I remember correctly but it's not available anymore.

  3. OPI is a beautiful brand, but yes it is way too expensive! I guess this is one of those shades that change drastically with each coat you put on! Still, looks gorgeous :)


  4. Ohh I love this Colour I am going to have to add it to my OPI Collection I think. Please follow me back www.corynleebeauty.blogspot.com.au

  5. I love rosey pink shades! I haven't of this shade before but it looks stunning. I can't believe how glossy it is!

  6. This is a really lovely colour! Although I tend to steer clear of OPI unless it's on eBay or something, as the price tag is far too steep for me! (I'm happy to pay a big amount but not when I know I can get it for $9 in the US!)
    A shame you didn't get what you wanted though!

  7. The is such a pretty rosy pink/red! I love the formulations of OPI nail polishes as they are so smooth and easy to apply. I don't think I can think of any dupes from the top of my head but there probably is one out there haha! :P
