my nail polish collection - pinks

I have a surprisingly large amount of pink nail polish considering how little I wear it - I guess it's because there always has to be a pink in a nail polish gift set, it's practically against the law not to have one.
L-R 2True Shade 6, OPI Bubble Bath, OPI Steady as She Rose, Laminelle No Name

2True Shade 6 - This is so so sheer, there's no way I would ever wear this outside a french manicure, it's basically clear with pink shimmer.

OPI Bubble Bath - I'm wearing this on my nails here, which took four coats to make it opaque and as you can see from the swatch it's just the colour of your nails. It cancels out any yellowness on your nails, but apart from that I see no reason to wear this because it gives the same look as a nail whitener.

OPI Steady as She Rose - I strangely love this colour. I say strangely because, as you probably can already tell, I don't favour light pinks. For such a light colour the application is quite good, only needing three coats instead of the usual four or five coats pastels normally need. NOTD here.

Laminelle No Name - I can't really comment on this seeing as I've never worn it, as is the case with a few others in this post.
L-R OPI Tickle My France-y, Nail Polish, Collection 2000 Charisma, OPI Sparrow Me The Drama

OPI Tickle My France-y - Haven't worn this yet, but doesn't look too nice in the swatch.

Nail Polish - Again, never worn this. Probably never will because the quality looks awful.

Collection 2000 Charisma - I picked this up because it looked so nice in the bottle but it doesn't translate too well onto the nail though.

OPI Sparrow Me The Drama - Oh, such a cute name. Colour is pretty average, it's a light to medium pink, there's not much to say about this one either.
L-R Claire's No Name, Body Collection No Name, OPI Strawberry Margarita, L'Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium 455

Claire's No Name - Pink, sparkly, uber girly, I have to be in a very specific mood to be able to wear this without throwing up. Ok, exaggeration, I just get tired of it quickly, it's actually a pretty nice top coat over a more opaque polish.

Body Collection No Name - Never wore it, can't comment.

OPI Strawberry Margarita - This is the closest to a neon pink I've got, I'm wearing it here, and I would describe this as a typical "toes" colour. It just looks better on your feet than on your hands.

L'Oreal Resist & Shine Titanium 455 - I can never tell if this is a pink or a coral, I'm going to say it's a pinky-coral and chuck it in with this lot. I really want to buy more of this L'Oreal range because the formula of 455 is amazing, it stays on ages without chipping, is opaque and applies nicely.
L-R Collection 2000 Siren, Colour Nail Polish, Filthy Gorgeous Tu-Tu Much

Collection 2000 Siren - Another bright, bright pink and this one is pretty opaque, applies well, dries fast and is around £2. If you're looking for a bright pink, look no further because this one's a good all-rounder.

Colour Nail Polish - This one's a reddish pink, and I've never worn it. Wow, that was short.

Filthy Gorgeous Tu-Tu Much - Compared to all my blue-toned pinks this one looks slightly warmer toned, also application and formula are faultless. NOTD here.

Do you like pink nail polish? Or do you get sick of it quickly, like me?


  1. Need to get myself some of those nail wheels. There's nothing worse than putting on a new polish, only to decide you don'tlike it, and have to start again! Much better to try them out first.
    I have never been a huge wearer of pinks, either, but this summer I am starting to feel more like it, as there are some beautiful brights around.
