I purchased this as a set along with 3 other mini bottles and out of the 4, this is not getting any love from me at all. I wanted this to work so badly and it's totally deceiving. Probably I just don't have the right skintone and nudes don't really go well with my pale, neutral to cool toned hands? I think this will look better on ladies with darker skin tone...
Colour in th bottle reminds me of soft cotton candy colour. Looks so delicious and I'd expect this to be jelly-like. But then in real life... I am not happy with the quality of this one.
Assuming the minis are as good as the full sized ones and let's assume I didn't get a bad one as I puchased this in an authorized retailer, this is so disappointing. With 1 coat on, the colour is uneven, oh fine, let's do the second coat. Still, very sheer and not streakless at all. 3 coats make the polish look more even but still sheer, not opaque. I can see the white tips of my natural nails easily and clearly. I'm not going to do my fourth coat. So time consuming and the colour will then be too pale and too solid to look good at all.
Being unhappy yet tired of smelling any more nail polish, I decided to leave it on. It took me 3+ trials to apply this on to get acceptable results. I leaved it on and on the second day it chipped. A large chuck. Ack. I even have base & top coats on and this is so unusual with me. At least my other OPIs last longer than this.
Certainly not repurchasing this one. For something similar though probalby not as pink & mroe white, I prefer So Laque in Rose Lounge from Bourjois. It's like a soft white creme with a hint of pink. Quality is better too - can survive 4+ days without a top coat.
I am obsessed with Giada and when I found out this was the color she wore, I had to have it. Unfortunately, I did not take into account that I do not have the gorgeous olive skin that she does and when I wear this color I look like I let Elmer's glue dry on my fingertips.
Yes, I jumped on the Giada manicure bandwagon.
This is such a beautiful milky pink that's just classic and lovely. 2 coats are needed for that Giada magic color. I have a lot of pink in my skin and its the first nude pink that I've found to actually be flattering. The application is smooth and easy too. HG pink polish here for warm or olive skin tones- might be hit or miss for cool toned gals.
Makes my hands look corpse-like. I was looking for a nice, natural nudey "my nails but better" pink and this is not it. The milky color clashes horribly against my light yellow skintone. It's still not completely opaque after 3 coats, and the formula is streaky and very sheer. OPI is one of my favorite NP brands because of the wide brush, but that could not redeem the unflattering shade of this color and BB certainly doesn't live up to the hype. My search for the perfect nude pink polish continues!
EDIT: Just wanted to add it's been peeling off already. What a shitty formula! It reminds me of Essie Ballet Slippers, an equally over hyped and unflattering color.
I'm a Malaga Wine-Bogata Blackberry kind of girl. I have a difficult time finding nudes I really like! It seems everything I buy has a yellowish cast, or is a dull, flat nude. I purchased this yesterday at Target, and it's wonderful. There is no yellow cast and with 2 coats, it's semi-sheer. The color is exactly as I expected, a milky pink. I would re-buy if I run out, but by then I will be into my darks for fall. For now, though, this fits the bill beautifully.
Very sheer and very yellowish, even though it didn't look like that in the bottle. Tossed the bottle, will not buy again. So there!
This USED to be the only nail polish I wore (for years!). Then once it became popular they completely changed to the color. I have no idea why they would do this...just make a new shade with a new name! This was a beautiful milky white-pink...now it is a nude (almost yellowy orange) pink. Completely different! So I immediately switched to essie's Ballet Slippers because it was a dupe for the old version of Bubble Bath. Now, essie has recently changed their color to look more like the new Bubble Bath. I am not understanding why these companies would do this. I have recently found a new dupe for the old Bubble Bath - Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Pink Slip. Gorgeous and a nice formula...and a touch cheaper than OPI and essie!! So ladies, if you are of the many who loved the old Bubble Bath, run out and get this!!
I was really surprised how smoothly this one went on cause sheer pinks usually get really streaky on my nails and accentuate the ridges *I'm looking at you Essie ballet slippers*...bubble bath is perfect for frenchies
For years now, I've been searching for Giada De Launrentiis' nail polish, and finally found out about it 2 weeks ago from a blog!
this is my first OPI purchase, and i have to say, it's quite expensive...but the quality is really good! and the shade was just as i expected it to be! alot of people say it's too pink from the "original" bubble bath mix.. but i find it just right!
will definitely buy again!
