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.
