The color is pretty but I think it's not complimenting on a lot of skin tones.. The formulas extremely streaky and sheer, one needs at least three coats to get even coverage.

I have had this polish now for 3 years & I can't believe I have under-used it. After applying it for the first time in a long time, I have realised how much I actually love it. Fair Dinkum Pinkum is an opaque, slightly chalky pale pink - with a tinge of beige/flesh tone in it & some fine specks of silver glitter. They are actually dispersed in a way that they are very subtle when applied - you only see a faint fleck here and there due to the opacity of the colour.
Because it is one of these creamy opaque colours, I found that it was streaky on the first 2 coats, so applied 3 coats for even coverage. The Australian collection was also the first collection with the pro-wide brush, and I think possibly that the brush has widened slightly in recent collections, as this one feels a bit narrower. But I actually like the slightly narrower pro-wide, especially for me as I have a small nail bed. The staying power has definitely improved though in recent collections - although this still lasts longer than other polishes, it does start to wear away at the tips quicker.
Overall, I actually really like this colour. I think it would look great during summer when I have fake tan applied - I think it will make it stand out even more. I have a feeling this has been discontinued from the permanent collection - shame because I really like it and it's different from other pale pinks in the range.

i got this at CVS in a bogo sale and i love it.. its the perfect color to do with white nail polish to create a clean polished french manicure.. the sparkles are subtle and while it does go on streaky.. i find that 2 coats are enough to even the color out and look clean and fresh =) i love this and will def get a few more back ups

If you are reading this review before your purchase, please think twice! I normally love OPI polishes but not this one. Formula is quite different from the other ~2 dozens OPI bottles I have. This is very sheer but streaks and difficult to apply even with wide pro brush. I've neutral medium skin tone (a bit tanner in the summer) and this color is quite ugly.

I must be one of the only people in the universe that actually like this color. I have very fair warm toned skin (red hair & freckles) and the pale pink color is a nice change from some of the other brighter colors I usually wear during the summer. The glitter is a nice touch too, although I often make it more intense by adding a holo topcoat.
I had no trouble with the application- and 2 coats were enough to give me an opaque look w/o any streaks but again, being so fair, I have pale nail beds. Ultimately, if you run across this one in the bargain bin- it might be worth a shot (if you are fair)!

The color in the bottle is gorgeous - a milky pink with glitter. When I went to put this on my nails, it was VERY VERY VERY opaque. Took me 3 coats to get it to look like it was in the bottle. Very streaky looking too. Don't recommend.

I was intrigued by how pretty the pink creme base of this polish was, and the mention of sparse silver glitter in it. I figured it would be a safe pink with a little bling. Turns out, very little bling. Application was very streaky and uneven. Took 2 thick coats for me to get opaque, and I was not sure that 2 coats would do the trick at first. I love the base color, but the silver glitter does not show up well, IMO. I think there are other pretty pinks like this out there that apply better in 2 coats (I won't keep a polish if it needs 3 coats) -- I just have to find them.

I was looking for a part-sheer part-opaque light pink when I bought this. It requires at least three coats for a uniform light pink color. I have light to medium skin, and am in a struggle to figure out if I am warm or cool so I cannot comment on that. Overall, this polish is pretty good, but not as good as most OPI polishes. However, I have yet to find a light pink with enough opaqueness, so its possible I would repurchase this.

I was looking for a pale pink opaque cream polish. I used 2 coats to get an opaque finish (it's somewhat streaky otherwise). I've seen many photos of this color on others and it always looks pale and lovely. On me, the color is more like loud Pepto Bismol/bubblegum. Almost an orangey-pink, especially horrible looking under strong indoor lighting. It seems like it goes on darker than it appears in the bottle. It was disappointing. I have pale but warm/yellow-toned skin, maybe it's just a bad clash. I think this would look better on someone who has pinkish/cool skin.
The shimmer/glitter is extremely subtle, very nice.
Nice packaging, like the brush.

A nice pale bubblegum pink shade with what looks like white irregularly shaped glitter. Unfortunately, it doesn't go on the nail quite as nicely as it looks in the bottle. This takes me at least 3 coats to acheive full coverage without giant streaks in the middle of my nails. While I like this colour, I wouldn't buy it again.

It seems like OPI had reached their zenith long ago and now all the latest shades are pooh! I too should have read the reviews closer before buying this. The glitter is choppy!! Very uneven and looks horid! If it were a cream, it might have been OK. This glitter looks like mistakes or bubbles as somone else described. I'm going to use it on my toes where nobody will see close that those chunks are so sloppy looking and use a glitter type coat on top to save it.

Once again, I should have read MUA before buying! It's just that this looked like exactly the color I wanted, and I thought the microglitter would add some depth so the color wouldn't look flat or chalky. Instead, the glitter looks like a mistake because the polish is so streaky and uneven. I like the shade of pink but the application is awful.

Not my favorite pink. In the bottle FDP is a baby pink with silver microglitter. On the nails, it is a streaky pepto bismo-esque pink. I think I am too warm-toned to pull this one off, plus there are other pink shades that I prefer to FDP for a low-maintenance mani (Dulce de Leche, Malaysian Mist).

I'm not a fan of pink polishes, but Fair Dinkum Pinkum was so light that it looked good for a low-maintenance pedi color. It is an opaque light pink with random silver glitter, which makes for a streaky, uneven application. 3 coats were definitely necessary, but I still did not like this color for my very fair, warm-toned skin. Perhaps on someone with a good tan or someone fair w/ cool tones, FDP would work as a low-maintenance color.

I really hate this color. For starters it's too sheer to be an opaque which is what I think it's supposed to be. The whites of my nails shone through. The color is really awful too. I have a warm but light compexion and most colors look good on me but this was not good.

Hm, I didn't have any streaking problems at all. This color is almost sheer, so maybe that's why. Or maybe it was the brush. Usually creamer, more opaque colors come out streaky but this does not. It's almost opaque with one coat. By the second coat it's opaque enough, and I didn't notice a difference with a third coat. The hint of glimmer is kind of unique, almost like snowflakes, not the typical shimmer. The color is basically a blue-based medium pink, a nice light color for spring.

This is a soft powdery pink creme with a light sprinkle of micro-glitter. I've tried both a mani and a pedi with this shade and given how difficult it was to apply, it looked much better on my toes where the streaks and inconsistencies in coverage weren't as noticeable. Fair Dinkum Pinkum is one of twelve shades from the Spring 2007 Australian collection.

Gorgeous slightly shimmery pale pink! Not Pepto-Bismol like at all, even lighter than that. Very pale w/ slight "glass-like" shimmer. Unlike other reviewers, application was great for me. With no basecoat/ridgefiller, it became opaque in 2 coats, the first being fairly streaky (as with most shades) and the second evening outthe color for a flawless finish.

why do i feel like i should be wearing "electric youth" with this color? this is the bubble-gummiest shade of nail polish i've ever tried. wait--make that pepto. at any rate, this color doesn't seem it would be appropriate for anything beyond a barbie convention or '80s prom party. a single coat looked streaky, and a double coat became way too pink. yuck.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
The color is beautiful - a pale cool pink with just the slightest hint of shimmer, semi-opaque rather than sheer - but the application gave me a really hard time! The polish went on unevenly and streaky, no matter how hard I tried. I had the same problem with Canberra't Without You, another shade from the Australia collection, but there, while the first coat went on streaky, the second evened it out. Is it me? Is it the formula? Is it the ProWide brush (which everyone else seems to love)? I've been using and loving OPI polishes for years so I'm kinda puzzled and disappointed.
