NOTD: OPI Princesses Rule

This is OPI's Princesses Rule, a pale pink shimmer which is sheer, yet buildable, with subtle white, gold, pink, and even green sparkle.  Released with the Princess Charming collection quite some time ago, it's now a permanent part of the collection, and is apparently their most popular pink.  I'm utterly unsurprised by this, as for me this is the perfect pink - unobtrusive but not boring, pretty but relatively subtle, and sparkly without being over the top.  

It's my go-to polish when I don't have a lot of time for a careful application: three coats gives the above effect, but if I'm pressed for time, one coat still looks polished and groomed with minimum effort.  As it's a pale shade, it doesn't show chips easily, and it's hardwearing too - I can stretch an application out for five days or so with a good topcoat.  Application is smooth and non-globby, drying time is pretty decent, and it comes with a Pro Wide brush, which I personally love.

And indeed - I've used a quarter of a bottle.  I barely manage to make a dent in most polishes before they go thick and unusable (or unloved), so this is a real rarity.

If you like the look of this beautiful polish, you can grab it from BeautyBay, where a 15ml bottle will cost £9.95.  Which is definitely worth it.


  1. This is one of my favourite sparkly OPI colours too, subtle without being OTT. Thanks for reminding me about it. Jan

  2. I'm not normally a big sparkle fan, but this looks tres jolie!
