I have a real thing for light pink nail polish. The last pink that I tried was Essie Mademoiselle. Though I liked it, I found it too sheer. To get any color, I needed at least 3 coats. I was really excited when I got OPI Bubblebath in the mail. It looked more pink in the bottle than Mademoiselle. I had a good feeling about the new shade.

Personally, I recommend Bubblebath over Mademoiselle for sure if you are in the market for a light pink shade of polish. When Bubblebath is applied with just 1 coat, I find that the color is akin to when Mademoiselle is applied 2-3 times. With the one coat, it looks like a shiny clear polish with a touch of milky pinkness. 2 coats of Bubblebath is so pretty, opaque and light pink. It is not too white or too nude (Like Mademoiselle) either. You can really see the pink. I bet 3 coats is really nice and looks even more opaque, but I always stop at 2. You can still see the white part of your nail, so it looks like a French.

The polish isn't absolutely perfect. I've noticed some streaking when I polish my nails. I don't love that, but since it's a nice color, I put up with it. I've found that this gives a lasting manicure. I painted my nails on the 8th and up until the night of the 13th, I experienced NO chipping. This was without a top coat or base coat. I put my nails through the ringer last night because I was unpacking some electronics from blister packaging, and then I was putting everything together. The polish basically chipped off during that. I think if I didn't use my nails so much last night, the manicure would have lasted an extra day or two.

I received this free as a win from the Allure magazine giveaway for June. They are sold at salons and beauty supply stores. The price can vary. Check the brand's website for more information: link.
