i have a disturbingly strong faible for bold pink nail polishes. since i decided against Chanel Riviera when it came out last summer thinking it would be just another bright pink, i could not get the swatches and online swatch pictures out of my mind: it became the perfect hot pink in my imagination. perfect for my skin tone, bright but with a hue of a muted cast which prevents it to be screamingly bright and adolescent.
well, it's gone now :( so i will always keep my eyes open for some great pinks... such as this one!
it's OPI's My Address Is Hollywood from their recent Touring America collection.
i bought it on ebay, i think i paid something around 6-8€ for it (shipping included).
it has a flat wide brush and the bottle contains 15ml. the texture is good, rather liquidy but not too thin. My Address Is Hollywood is a slightly muted bold pink with pink and gold microshimmer. the shimmer is only visible in sunlight, but in normal light it does create a subtle glow on the nails.
it applies streak-free and evenly, it's opaque in 2 coats. the drying time is average, the finish is quite glossy. it's near to my perfect pink shade, but i find that the shimmer adds some brightness to it that i wouldn't need.
it did last on my nails for 3 days without any tip wear or chipping.
