WOC Nude Series: OPI Hopelessly In Love

OPI Hopelessly In Love
direct sunlight, three coats
Here is another post that I have been sitting on. It's part of my WOC nude series, which are reviews of nail polishes that I think could constitute as a nude polish for women of colour. I don't think I have anymore of these sitting in the vault so I will have to do a bunch of swatches in the summer of more nudes to show you what they look like.

I know it can be a bit of a struggle to find nice nudes if you have dark skin. First of all, most bloggers have light/fair skin and then almost all the swatches you search for in google are white. So it's hard to know if buying that one colour is going to work for you. I think I've also bought so many polishes that I've just accepted that idgaf about what the colour will look like on me. If I really hate it, I'll trash it. Or I'll use one of those OPI sheer tints topcoats and give it a different colour.

That being said, I love this colour. I really do - I left it at home though because I couldn't bring all my nudes with me. And you know what, I love the name of the colour too. I think it's very fitting and definitely could be used as a bride. OPI describes it as "A pink as true as true love" awww. How cute.
