Hello beautiful people!
I know in journalism you are not suppose to show favoritism, but this is a blog and I do what I want. In that case I am going to be bias and say OPI is my favorite nail polish. There are a few reasons OPI is at the top of my list; it is a quality product that goes on smooth and stays on long, the colors have fun names and the polish is one of the most accessible being that it is in almost every store.
In my first blog post I go a little bit more in depth behind the differences between OPI and other nail polish brands.
When the company launched their first 30 shades in 1989. The color naming meetings were top secret like they still are today.
The OPI brand won every nails readers’ choice award…yes every one since the birth of the award in 2004.
According to Erika Kotite of Nails Magazine, there are 160 active OPI shades on the market; colors are retired every year to make room for new shades.
But let us get back on track, nude.
OPI carries over 20 nude colors (if anyone knows the exact number comment below). With Bubble Bath (pictured below) probably being the most popular nude of choice.
The plus side to nudes and natural colors is they really don’t get old. Furthermore, there are many nail art styles that you can pair the nude colors with.

In high school my favorite nude color Sweet Heart by OPI. The color is similar to Bubble Bath, but a touch more pink. Over the years I could not find the color anywhere…but I finally found it!!! I recently went to Sally’s beauty shop in Los Angeles, California and there in all of its glory was an entire row of Sweet Heart polishes.
Finally, to stretch the definition of nude colors I would consider Mod About You by OPI a nude. Do you agree? Or am I stretching it too much?
Mod About You is a baby pink that has a chalky finish. If you have not tried this color I highly recommend it!
Above Tatiana and I are supporting some nude shades…paired well with any outfit nudes are the way to go!
What is your favorite nude shade? Are you on the Bubble Bath train? How about favorite polish brand?
