Shout out to my FAVE, tried-and-true nail polish of all time: OPI’s Hawaiian Orchid.
Sheer, shiny light pink that’s actually flattering on my tan skin tone (take that, Essie!) I got my nails done over the weekend, and was more than dismayed when they swiped on not one, not two, but three coats of a goopy way-too-pale pink that looked heinous (I think she thought more coats would somehow improve the look, but obviously it did just the opposite.) It smudged by the time I got to the car, leaving me no other option than to rifle through my bottles of polish at home for a fast fix.
I haven’t painted my own nails in years (!!), so it took some getting used to, but I managed to pull off a professional-looking (ish) manicure thanks to my beloved Hawaiian Orchid hue. Next time, please remind me to just stick to what works.
