OPI's Mod About You has long been one of my favourite nail polishes. I love the pale pink with just a hint of lilac tone to it, and mostly I love how opaque it is. But, as pretty as it is, I've a lot of moments where I found myself wishing it was just a touch more neutral. I wanted a colour that was the palest of pinks, almost white but completely opaque. OPI's Privacy Please, Bubble Bath and Sweetheart were on the right track colour-wise but even with four coats didn't give me that opacity I was after. I kept my eyes on the nail counters, always looking for the right one but the story was always the same; the colour was right but it just went on too sheer.
Finally, in steps Romper Room, one of Essie's 2014 Spring offerings. It's The One! It's exactly what I wanted. A fully opaque polish with just a whisper of pink. SO pretty! I'll admit, the formula is not as good as I'd like, it can streak a little on your second coat if you use too many strokes but I'm willing to overlook that because I'm in love.
Do you have either of these two polishes, which is your favourite?
Are there any other pale polishes that you think I should try?
