This nail polish is one of my favorites. I'm very fussy and barely ever try anything new, but I fell in love with this color when I saw it online. My mom says it reminds her of buttercream frosting. It's just so gorgeous. It's not like a pepto bismol pink, or any weird shade for that matter. It's just a beautiful creamy color. Very elegant!
I HAD TO PUT 5 COATS OF THIS TO GET A SOLID COLOR, omg... other than that, drys fast, hasnt chipped really in over a week, hmm from the reviews here maybe i should try it with a french manicure, Will update. :)
An average color. Bubble Bath is milky pink creme. It's quite sheer after 2 coats. I mean the application is not that good as I can see the streaks. I only apply 2 thin coats and I can see the color is not evenly distributed. I don't mind using it once a while but this color is definitely too ordinary and I have seen heaps of OPI like this. Nothing special. I don't think I will wear this color very often so I choose not to repurchase. But if you want a clean nails, apply one coat and it's good for going to work.
If I was reviewing on the older bubble bath,
I would had given it a 5 instead.
I'm reviewing on the new one.
One word.... PINK!
It's too pink for my liking.
I have to say,
Bubble Bath was my all time favorite color.
But when I saw the newer one,
I was just sad.
I tried it out and I just can't stand it.
The Axxium Gel Lacquer one actually comes out more like the older bubble bath then the newer nail polish one.
If your into the older Bubble Bath,
I recommend Innocence by China Glaze.
It looks almost like it.
But the formula is just a little thicker.
Oh OPI - WHY oh WHY did you change the colour of Bubble Bath? I bought Bubble Bath 4 years ago - it was my first ever OPI purchase, and I have loved it for so long. It was my no-brainer nude/natural nail colour - a milky, soft pink-tinged off white. Sheer on the first coat or two, but became opaque after the 3rd coat. Just beautiful - chic and clean. Perfect for when I felt like a 'pale' nail, but didn't want to go for the harshness of a white.
Because my orginal bottle was before the pro-wide brush was introduced (and the pro-wide brush makes application so much easier), I decided to update Bubble Bath to a new bottle with the new brush. And to my disappointment, I found that the colour is different. It's now not milky looking and a tad more pink. (I will post comparative photos when I get around to it). Also, the formulation is different & I'm not happy with it. This one, as with other recent Soft Shades I have purchased, do not apply easily - and take AGES to dry.
So if Bubble Bath was the same colour as it was originally, I would definitely buy it again. It was unique. But with this changed shade - no - it's nothing special, and the formulation is horrible. I will probably use Essie's Ballet Slippers instead, as it's the most similar to the original OPI Bubble Bath. continued >>
Nice neutral all-over manicure color - I have short nails (+ short nail beds) and fair skin, so dark nail colors don't work for me. Sort of a milky-pink with a faint hint of lilac, but sheer enough so that the white tips of your nails show through, which I like. Looks polished, but natural.
Too pink/lilac and I prefer more nude based sheers for my french manicure. It made my fingertips look swollen and washed out. Did not like it at all and will never use again.
Perfect for everyday wear-and lovely for a french manicure base color!! I like that it is a milky pink-beautiful and classy on everyone! This is my second bottle!
I'm not crazy about the price, but I had a great coupon so I got this for about $2. When I put on the first coat, I noticed it was streaky but figured after one or two more coats it would be fine. i love how this dried really fast. after putting on the second coat it wasn't as streaky but on one nail it was pretty bad. i didn't have time to put on a third coat so i hurriedly put on a top coat. now, the color is only okay. It's too pink for my taste, but still looks decent. overall, i wouldn't purchase this again as this will probably last a while.
EDIT: after a few more months, i really like this color. i usually now use three-four coats, which is perfect. with a topcoat, for me, it lasts up to about 5 days. it's still streaky buttt i've learned to deal with it because the result is really beautiful!
Looks so great over a french manicure to tone down the white. I love french manicures but sometimes I don't like the look of the bright white tips. This color looks perfect with my skintone to tone it down.
