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!
I had hoped it would be less sheer. I have to apply 3 to 4 coats to get the desired pink tone.
It's just because I'm not into sheer colors; I never use it. But I can imagine this is a classic for other women, like for french nails.
Bubble Bath is a gorgeous and timeless shade. Not the kind that I wear every day (I like brights, vampies, and any colour in between... not really too many sheers), but it's a very subtle and clean looking shade that I believe is a staple in every nail girl's stash. You never know when you'll need a simple and classy shade like this pretty sheer pink!
this is an easy, light color to wear that goes with everything. maintenance is also pretty easy for those days when you just don't have time for touch-ups. you will need to do a few coats to get the look from the bottle though
