Wow this is a nice pleasant surprise, I'm on a nailpolish collecting mood this year and quickly got over 70 bottles of OPI/essie/China glaze etc salon brands within the space of 3 months, so for me to totally love a color it's gotta be special.
Well, Blushingham palace is special, consistency is great, applies really smooth and it's pigmented, two coats is plenty and i tried doing 3 coats and honestly it looks exactly the same. The color is a mauve-purply-rosey-pink infused with fine shimmers in the same shade. The purple undertone is not that strong, which makes it still wearable, the overall color is not too bright either, it's a very understated, yet elegant autumn mani color. Still very conservative office appropriate too. The finish is very fine shimmering glow, a tiny hint bordering metallic, but it's just so fine in shimmers it's not tacky or full metallic nail looking.

I included a pic below, it's fairly accurate but this color does look even softer/paler in most indoor lights. As you can see this is not a dominantly purple polish. I actually applied 1 coat of Senorita Rose-alita underneath first (it's a rosey-medium-pink with subtle gold shimmer that has underlying fuschia pink tones), but i thought it was a bit bright for office, then i painted 1 coat of blushingham palace over it and whola! instant pretty nails. I think layering a red or hot pink underneath might be able to tone down the purple tones for those who don't like purple. But just a tiny bit since this shade is very pigmented afterall.

This color is a great consistency, and has good wear. It's complete coverage in about two coats In the bottle, it looks like it's this gorgeous pink color with a gold shimmer in it. When I put it on, though, it just looks a bit weird. Not my favorite color.

I love this shade! I find it pretty complex. I would call it a metallic medium dusty rose-mauve. I am NW25 and find this perfect for toes and hands. It's very feminine and springy.

This is def. an interesting color. A deep, blush-rose color with silver, almost diamond shimmer. It goes on nicely with about three coats to achieve opaqueness. Looks nice on me, so I'll wear it again.

It's so hard to apply this color, esp. with the new pro-wide brush! Ahhh I gave up with this. It's a pretty color, but I guess not for me.

Pretty mauve lilac, slightly metallic. Very wearable shade all year round. Goes on smooth and easy to apply.

This is just awesome. It's a lavender/pink/mauve with a slight frost to it. A great color for fall that would look equally nice on hands and toes. I love finding shades like this that are muted and soft but aren't a sheer neutral. Being warm toned, I was worried that this would look weird on me but it doesn't at all. Highly recommend!

Very cute medium rosey mauve with a hint of lilac. Pearly/frosty finish. No shimmer. Sorta Barbie-ish, but quieter. A very girly color. Typical OPI quality in terms of wear. These suckers are expensive, though (around $8) and I can barely justify spending so much on polish I probably won't wear very often (I get bored of colors quickly and change my nail/toe color almost weekly). But good investment if you like the color.

I love this color! I'm a cool-toned PPP, so I wear a lot of pinks...especially mauves. The metallic shine to it makes it different than the other pinks I have. Also, the staying power is great. I'd definitely buy it again :)

This is a pretty rosey mauve shade that goes on with a nice shine and lasts for a long time on my nails without chipping. This is a pretty unique shade that I think would look nice year round.
