I got inspired by a client of mine. She obviously had her nails done at a salon, but the color was just gorgeous. It was a Barbie pink color. Theres 2 sides of this debate: its either a Barbie pinked out strong opaque pink or in my case it is a pink with a very subtle blue undertone.
Search and you will find as I did through OPI. I found their Lucky Lucky Lavender shade which was just that – girly, pink with a blue undertone, and perfect applied one coat (as is my habit). It is hard at times to find color matches, but the good thing is the OPI counters always have the color swatches for you to ‘try on’ the product color – which is always better indication than looking at the color through a glassed bottle.
TIP: to really get a salon look: repeat a second layer for a thicker appearance and/or follow up with a glossy top coat.
