Manicure Monday: Nicole by OPI Selena10:43 PM
Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share my first Nicole by OPI polish in a classic pink. Some of you may know that Selena Gomez recently teamed up with the line to come out with her own set of polishes and this particular color happens to be her namesake. Like Selena herself, Selena is perky, girly, and undeniably cute!
After wearing quite a few masculine polishes in the last month, I really wanted to try something out that would be super low-maintenance and feminine to bring me out of the last stages of my cold. This pink caught my eye since it was bright but the peach tones and nearly-undetectable microshimmer create a very wearable Springtime shade.
Here I am wearing OPI Nail Envy as a base coat with 3 coats of Nicole by OPI Selena for full opacity. I also used my favorite top coat Seche Vite to seal everything in place. This combination has been incredibly impressive because I've already worn the polish for over a week and have had next to no chipping with minimal tip wear and only visible nail growth after all this time! The color isn't too harsh on my skintone so it's a great polish for busy girls who don't change their polish often and want a lacquer that "ages gracefully."
As popular as pinks are, I feel like it can be difficult to find a perfect pink that goes well with my skintone without falling back on a go-to magenta or pale ballet pink. Selena for me is a nice middle ground that is bright enough to feel like a change of pace but is still demure enough to be work-appropriate and go with any outfit. In a word: easy!
Readers, what is your go-to pink? What tones of pinks flatter your skintone? Let me know in the comments!
