Two Pink Manicures

I showed you purple manicures the other day, now here are some pink ones! I have more pink polishes than any other color, even glitter, which sounds crazy. Probably because it's the most readily available shade out there haha.

This is a total classic OPI, Bubble Bath. It's literally the first shade of nail polish I ever remember hearing about. A predominantly "bridal" color, this shade is described as a pink shade of white. I know the newest versions of this are more pink than the original was, but this is my first bottle so I have nothing to compare it to. This is four coats, it's quite sheer, but lovely and timeless.

Now for a more salacious version of a pink manicure, this is China Glaze Wicked Style from their Electropop collection with an accent nail of Floss Gloss Dimepiece. The pink is a punchy bright but not neon pink which I think contrasts excellently with the chunky silver glitter. I felt so funky fresh wearing this mani :)

You can buy OPI at professional retailers and salons for $8.50. You can buy China Glaze from retailers like Sally Beauty, Ulta, and online for around $7. Floss Gloss is sold online for $8. Have you worn any good pink manicures lately?

  1. Two beautiful pink shades, I don't have too many pink polishes but I really like the look of Bubble Bath. Even though my wedding is quite a while away, I've been pondering nail choices and this could be a contender with a glitter aspect to it. I love the second mani as well, that accent nail goes perfectly with it!

  8. Both look absolutely beautiful on you!! I own Bubble Bath but it got so little contrast to my skin that I don't like to wear it on its own. The bright pink with Accent nail is definitvely my favorite <3

  9. Pink is my go to polish shade of all time. I am sure it was the first shade I ever wore back in the 60's when I wore polish as a kid. It was surplanted in the 60's by frosty white with the mod British phase hitting fashion, but I do recall in HS wearing a frosted Maybeline or Revlon pink more often than not. Today I tend to go for all hues of pink but not the frosted finish (we had little choice of finish in the 60's and 70's - it was frost or cream and only grandmas wore cream! I am a 2X Breast Cancer survivor so I really support wearing the pink! I am here cured because of the great progress that was made in medicine in the past 15-20 yrs. Now we need to do the same thing for ovarian cancer - still a huge silent killer of women.

  10. I have a mini bottle of Bubble Bath I've never worn - I need to! And this swatch makes me want Wicked Style BAD! You just can't go wrong with a pink manicure. I love every color of the rainbow but pink is always sure to make me happy when I wear it!
