NOTD – Chapel Of Love

As with most of my OPI polishes I bought this purely for the name. I mean, how cute is that? Given that for a long time we were planning a runaway Vegas wedding you can imagine how this would appeal. I will give OPI this.. the colour is awesome! I have it on my fingers and toes and love love love it… however.. the formula.. not so much. It really grinds my gears that OPI continue to sell at such high prices when the quality just isn’t there. Yes their shade range is vast and seemingly unending with the constant stream of limited edition collections but it’s just not the best of the best. This took 4 or 5 coats to achieve the opaque “bottle” colour you see here and it was hard work. It’s very thin and dries slowly so if you’re not careful you will end up with a gloopy mess. The next time I use this I will be sure to set aside a rainy Sunday when I have nothing else to do because it will take hours to to it right. I find myself always annoyed by this with OPI and yet I continue to impulse buy for a great name or a unique shade… how do they do this?
Anyway… enough of my ranting and raving, My pregnancy hormones are leaving me less tolerant these days I’m sure. I am now on the hunt for a dupe for this bubblegum pink that is cheaper and easier to apply. I tried to capture the slight gold shimmer running through it in the picture below.. you can just about make out a sparkle on my nails but it doesn’t add anything for me I just really love the colour. I would be very happy to find a solid polish in this shade. Any suggestions?

    I've been wanting to splurge on an opi polish for months now but I keep putting off as most reviews aren't very good 🙁 it is a lovely colour but I'm so impatient I couldnt wait for it to dry x

    i like getting the OPI mini sets, then you get to try the colour selection but dont have to spend tons on all the different polishes, plus i never finish a bottel anyway 😀

    Gorgeous colour but I agree, couldnt be doing with several coats of the stuff! Just haven't got the patience.. even with my instant drying nail spray!
