NOTD: OPI Nicki Minaj 'Pink Friday'

Hi everybody!

Today I have another NOTD for you and this is one of my favourite all time polishes. This is 'Pink Friday' from the OPI Nicki Minaj collection. I am a big fan of Nicki Minaj, I just think she is in a league of her own, completely demented, and I love her music. I was so excited to hear that she was bringing out an OPI collection and I am drawn to 5 of the 6 colours released. Needless to say, I was very keen to pick up this nail polish which shares its name with one of my favourite albums.

It's hard to describe the colour- it's a beautiful pink colour, perfect for summer. It's not really pastel, definitely not fluorescent, it's truly pink with no hint of coral or orange. I knew when I saw swatches online that I was going to love this but it even exceeded my high expectations.

I love this colour so much, I cannot even convey. Every time I put it on, it makes me smile. It's just such a pretty blue based candyfloss pink and even though I have loads of pink nail varnishes, I have nothing like this really. It's bright, but not garishly or intimidatingly bright. I don't know if I would call in Barbie pink, I just feel like it's a little tamer than that, a little more muted, but everybody has a different interpretation of Barbie pink!

The formula is fantastic but it does take two coats to come out opaque. The first coat does look a little bit streaky to be honest so if you are looking for a one coat wonder, this is not it, but the second coat was the charm. It dried really quickly and lasts me up to three days without chipping (which is really great going for me!). I reckon this would be a good colour with most skin tones.

I just love this. It is definitely my favourite pink, it's so pretty and wearable. If you love pinks, I really recommend you try this. This is definitely a HG pink for me.

  1. I LOVE THIS TOO! I left my one in West Cork though so I only owned it for about 4 days :(

    1. aw leslie I'm so sad for you, I would be gutted! I remember you mentioning that in one of your vids! :( I know you've picked up a dupe since but if you really want to pick one of these up again, I got mine on ebay from the US for about $9/€7 ish mark and it only took 5 days to arrive! :) x
