OPI Nail Lacquer - Step Right Up! 0.5 oz - #NLF28
And see the most amazing light pink right before your very eyes.
Got this nail polish shade as a part of travel collection of nude nail polishes in smaller bottles. I was utterly disappointed. The formula is super weird, it comes across as very patchy with varying levels of coverage. To make it presentable without opacity holes, three thick layers were needed. I'm happy this one was a miniature as I have no problem throwing it out. Good riddance.
This appears to be discontinued.In the bottle it is a neutral-ish tan with a hint of pink and peach. It looks like it go on opague from the bottle.1 coat goes on a touch milky and streaky. Not terribly streaky and unworkable, but you do have to use some care. It's not a quick no-brainer on the go polish. But not horrbile like say Essie Marshmallow or Ballet Slippers. I like the color in 1 coat but as it dries some of the streaks look worse.2 coats helps a little. It still looks a bit streaky and uneven. Even with quick dry, leveling top coat (which does help), it's not quite perfect. 3 coats seems to be best. It tends to want to "lift" with quick dry top coat though. It doesn't really apply that well overall, but some who are good with tricky polishes and formulas might be able to get it to work. I can't.Skip this and get an easy to work with formula, like Wet N Wild's 2% Milk, Essie Allure or Madamosellie. (Not necessarily color dupes but in that same family.)I
This is a perfect shade that compliments most skin tones. I've had many trial and errors purchasing polishes that looked white but suited a pale skin tone. This colour is perfect! With and without a tan. It is a milky polishÃ¢â‚¬â€œso, if one pulls to many times with the nail polish brush it will streak. Two stokes of polish to cover the nail, nothing more, and it sets beautifully.
My first OPI and I'm very disappointed. The color is perfect for a job interview, which is why I bought it, but after FOUR coats it is still streaky and looks a bit chalky. Medium thick coats but I can still see the nail tips. My fault for not checking with here before I bought it. It was listed as a Best Seller on the OPI shelves but I certainly won't be buying it or any other OPI again, especially as it cost about USD$15. Very sad :(
The website I ordered this polish from did not give any information about its opacity, which was something I needed, because had I known it was this transparent I would never have bought it. It takes three coats to get it somewhat opaque and by then it's super streaky and has this "gooey" consistency. It feels like it never properly dries, and that I'm always in danger of scratching it up. Next time I'll check the opacity before ordering.
