I really like the pinkish-nude color, but it's a three coater. Gah!

This is a nice nude peach colour. Its an off cream/peach colour. Its flattering on my skin which is more yellow based. I would recommend.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Tan, Warm Hair: Blond, Straight, Medium Eyes: Blue
From the Japan collection (2005). This collection had 3 nudes - tempura is the peach based nude.
I really love the thin brush that the old style OPI had - so I think application of this is quite easy. I got opaque in just 2 coats - but a 3rd coat provided a more polished look.
3 ways to use this...
1. Alone - a pale peach nude that gives a well groomed look
2. With white tips as a peach based french mani
3. As a pale base for glitter top coats that are a bit to sheer to wear alone (like OPIs happy anniversary and hollywood blonde)
Happy to have in my collection x

pretty color, but consistency was terribly milky for me.

Love, love, love! Lately I've really been loving the nude polish look. It was a bit difficult trying to find the "right nude" for my skintone. This polish looks different on everyone. On some it's more peach and on others it's more beige or pink. For me, it's perfect. The formula is a little difficult but not unbearable. Definitely a three coater and as others have already suggested, a ridge filler helps even it out. This shade is still available online and not hard to find. Will repurchase if I manage to finish the bottle.

Love this opaque creme beige colour. It's wearable for everyday and every season. It's one of the first polishes I bought when I was in my early twenties and felt like I needed to start dressing/styling more like an adult. And I've been reaching for it ever since (like 5 years, revived once with thinner). I do need 3 coats for the best result. Ufortuntately I believe it has been discontinued :(

I really like this colour. It takes 3 coats to get the best out of it. The 1st coat is very streaky. The formula is hard to control as it's quite chalky. However, this peachy/pinky polish is a must to have as it's so pretty on my olive skin tone. It's discontinued since but not hard to find on the Internet.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Blond, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
I like this at three coats, and it takes on an almost chalky effect against my super-pale skin, but that's what I was going for with this color. Suits me well in the winter months.

This is a gorgeous, gorgeous, light pink polish with peach undertones. It applies completely opaque after three coats (the first coat is definitely streaky, the second is good, but I like to apply three). It has a high shine finish and is unique because it has a glow. It's not a boring, plain light pink polish, though it is definitely work-appropriate. It has a sort of lit-from-within look that I don't get from any other polish I own.
This is my absolute favorite polish. No tip wear until the fourth day of my manicure, and I use my hands a lot, so the wear is excellent. My bottle did not come with the pro wide brush, but I like the smaller brush because it's more precise anyway. I am thrilled with this.
(I ordered this with Hopelessly in Love, and while they look similar in the bottle, they are completely different.)

I really love Tempura. It looks really neat as you don't really see this colour around much :D
It went on smoothly for me. Three coats were what it needed to look its best. The formula was really nice, not hard at all for me to work with.
It did remind me of my foundation though hehe

Have a Tempura Tan-trum is a blend of pink, peach, white, and a bit of beige. In some lights this is light pink, in others a chalky color, and in some it is very peach. I can't decide if I like it quite ... but it is much better than Polar Bare on me as it is lighter (so peach-y instead of orange-y). For reference, I am very fair and cooler-toned.
I definitely had problems with streaking, but with two coats, I got reasonably even coverage. Using a ridge-filling basecoat and perhaps a third coat would probably even this out even more. This is not as horribly streaky as some other polishes I have tried and I believe pale, opaque polishes are by nature streaky.
This is not a slap it on and go polish, but if you are on the hunt for opaque nudes, this is worth a try. I think most shades in that category are ones you have to actually try in order to find if they work on you or not. I have been looking for the perfect opaque nude and this one is fairly close.

This is one of the few OPI's I've repurchased. It isn't the easiest to apply, but just did all my nails and didn't have to go back and redo any. I find it easier to apply than some China Glaze, which is another polish formula I love. What I like best about this is it is an opaque and with OPI's soft shades, they're nearly all sheers. In the bottle this looks tan, but on me it looks a soft peachy pink with only a hint of tan. I have warm peachy skin and the color looks great on me. Love it isn't too pink or too tan. Gives me much more omph than Cotton Candy as someone else mentioned in earlier reviews. I don't see how anyone could use this as a French because it would look streaky with the 1st coat since it is opaque. I've found that some base coats it streaks and some it doesn't. This time I happened to use China Glazes' Mineral #1 as a base and it went on like a dream. I'm going to get a back up bottle since I haven't seen this color in other lines I like and it isn't in OPI's classic line.
UPDATE: Also using OPI's top coat, this chipped on day 2 and I'm disabled awaiting surgery so I'm not working or doing much around the house to chip this. Too bad, I love this color. I don't recall my last bottle chipping so I don't know what's up.

I bought this because I love opaque nude polishes. This nail polsih is a light pinkish-beige color. It takes about 3 coats to get the color perfect. It is a bit streaky at first. It's very shiny and lasts a long time. This is my second favorite nude nail polsih (my first is Bare It In Trafalgar Square). I would repurchase, but I think this was LE.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
It's a pretty colour, but I find it hard to apply as it is so opaque. It ends up really streaky.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
ultimate nude. not sheer, or see-thru... actually goes on the way it appears in the bottle!! gives you that perfect pale "manicured"-looking color that is classy and polished. good on long and short nails, and toes.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I don't really know why I like this color so much, but I think it's because it makes for a GREAT French mani tip color (Not to mention it was like $3 at ulta lol)! Not too white, but still visible. Also, If I have a crazy color on my tips, I like this on my toes because then I don't look like an Wharhol painting. It also brings out my tan, in the summer, and a lack of one in the winter. Love it!

I actually like this more than I expected too, but it's still not a favorite. Have a Tempura Tan-Trum is from OPI's 2005 spring/summer Japanese collection. Like all of the neutral shades in that collection, this is very chalky and opaque. It is a creamy, very opaque, warm sandy beige color I think it looks best on really short nails, as it kind of gives them a mod look. I think you could really make this color work if you wanted to and were really patient applying it.

Fascinating. I was trying to decide if I liked this color - it is a very nude pink, opaque creme and is very understated, when my DH came over and I asked his opinion. Weirdly, it's one of the few polishes I have that he likes in his opinion, it isn't flashy, but it doesn't look like I'm just wearing clear polish. (He is a guy - he doesn't appreciate the subtle differences between Bond's Beige/CICC/Bubble Bath/Mademoiselle/Vanity Fairest and the like.)
It looks like a polish that my grandmother would wear - but before you judge - I have a pretty stylish grandmother, she just likes very understated, clean nail looks. If you like nude polishes, but don't care for all the sheer nudes that are out there - give it a try.

Hm. This is *almost* it for me. The color is not bad, it is just a tad too cool for me; the ever so slight mauve pinkish cast is a bit too much for me (I'm NW20 in winter). But this is very close to a perfect neutral!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal Hair: Blond Eyes: Hazel
LOVE IT! This is the perfect peachy/pinky opaque nude. Note that I prefer something more opaque, as my nails tend to get a lot of white spots....plus I like the look of something more opaque for my PPP skin.
