OPI You're Such A Budapest

I am definitely in a pastel polish frame of mind lately... OPI You're Such A Budapest is such a pretty shade, I knew it had to be in my collection after getting a pedi with it last summer. It was surprisingly versatile on my toes, too. I think I wore it for almost a month! I definitely don't regret purchasing it one little bit, and I wouldn't be too surprised if it makes its way back onto my feet this summer... :)

Remember when I was talking about how Violets Are Blue from Sinful Colors wasn't named well? I can't say that I'm super thrilled with the name of this one, either. I mean, I don't hate it, but I am partially Hungarian, so I say Budapest the right way... Budapesh, not Budapest. You know what was pesky about this polish, though? Properly photographing it! Man, was that difficult!

I took pictures inside and outside, with my CyberShot and my iPhone. Outside, this polish didn't want to have anything to do with the idea of being lavender, violet, lilac, or purple. It just wanted to show its blue side, and that.was.all. Inside, I was able to capture it a little better, but it still leans a liiiiiiittle bit more towards the purple side in real life than what you see in my photos.

You're Such A Budapest has a really fine shimmer that's visible in the bottle, and you can sort of see it on the nails. You have to look really closely for it, though. I think it's mainly there to soften up the look of the polish. Pastels can go chalky so easily, and a superfine shimmer in silver or gold can really help to avoid that. Originally part of the Spring 2013 Euro Centrale Collection, I bought my bottle from Sally Beauty Supply, and it seems to be a part of their core OPI collection.
