OPI Heart Throb

OPI Heart Throb is a sweet bubblegum pink sheer. I got this thinking it would be opaque. That's what I get for trusting the bottle lol. It's still super cute though. This is after white tips and 3 coats...or maybe 2 lol...I can't remember.
The tips were done by hand with a Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen. I like these pens when it comes to nail art that is in small parts. But I find that when I do bigger things, like french tips, the "formula" dries weird and cracks.
You can see that effect in the above picture a little more. I think this has something to do with the fact that the Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens are a "quick drying formula" and not actually nail polish. I have never noticed this problem when doing normal nail art like dots, little flowers, etc. 
I took this picture from farther away to demonstrate what it looks like from a normal distance. I really don't think the odd cracking tips are noticeable to everyone else, just to me since I closely analyze my nails lol.

Anyone know of a pretty pink creme that is totally opaque?


  1. orly "basket case" is my favorite pink creme! and possibly my favorite polish color ever, you can check it out here:

  2. are you looking for a soft pink or a hard pink? cause about the only pink I have are hard pinks, all of which are opaque in 2 coats or less. 1 is Pretty In Punk by Hard Candy, Twisted Pink by Sally Hansen, and 1 is a pink/gold duochrome Ultas Always a Bridesmaid (which is one of those I bought because it was 99 cents, but it became one of my absolute favorites.)

  3. I already have an opaque hot pink. I want like a cute, normal, bubblegum pink. What do you mean by soft and hard?

  4. Cathryn that pink is /almost/ perfect. It leans a little too close to purple for what I'm looking for though. I hate it when I have a specific color in my head like this and get all picky lol.

  5. Zoya Barbie is a pretty bubble gum pink that is fairly opaque, I'm not sure if it's opaque enough for what you're looking for. I am actually wearing it today! Will try to upload pics for you! :)

  6. Nope, this is not a polish I would like, I don't like that colour if the polish is sheer.

  7. The peel off mask that I have doesn't take out blackheads, but it leaves your skin so soft (^_^)

    To take out blackheads I use a product from Pond's which is specific to take out blackheads from the nose (I don't know the name in English, sorry)


I love and appreciate your comments, and always read every one!
