You’re Such a Kabuki Queen is a medium hot pink nail polish, released with the OPI Japanese collection for Spring/Summer season in the distant year of 2005. Today I’d love to show you the color in a combo with light pink and white laces :)
On my nails here you can see 3 thin coats of You’re Such a Kabuki Queen over a clear base. In the bottle the polish looks like a creme, but when applied it feels somewhat jelly-like. The formula is great, as usually with OPI. The 1st coat is streakless and smooth, but the nail line is visible and it doesn’t disappear after the 2nd coat. I wore the polish solo several times already, and the VNL looked natural and didn’t bother me. However, this time I thought I’d rather hide it under the 3rd layer, since I was going to do a half moon design.
For the half moons part I chose a light pink colour that matches the pink 3D bowknots.
Bowknots usually look good with dots and laces, so I added white lace water decals to outline the half moons.
Overall, for the pink half moon nails with bowknots I needed:
- Orly Nail Defense clear base
- OPI You’re Such a Kabuki Queen – base colour
- Essie Need a Vacation – currently it’s my go to light pink
- Lace decals
- 3D pink bowknots
- Clear top
Thank you for reading :) Have a good weekend!
