OPI Rally Pretty Pink

Well since a lot of girls do 'Pink Wednesday' and I'm not an overly pink kind of girl I thought I would do OPI Rally Pretty Pink, one of the Serena Williams inspired polishes.  I love this polish, it really is pretty, but I'm not sure about the pink bit.  I guess it is pink but it is more of a dusty shade with purple leanings, but the gold pigment in it is what makes it a wow.  It gives it a foil like finish and it flashes gold like it has been kissed by the sun, with an undercurrent of colour that isn't swamped by the gold, and I just adore it.  I don't have a bottle of Zoya Faye for comparison but I'm told they are dead on dupes of each other so if you have one you don't need the other, but you DO need one of them!  It went on well and although I thought it was a little sheer initially it built up nicely with 3 thin coats.  The only criticism I have of this one is it took forever to dry!  It had already been on for hours when I fell asleep, but when I awoke some nails had lovely creases and imprints of cloth and had to be redone, not so pretty.  So I wouldn't do a mani with it unless you have plenty of time for it to dry (or use a quick dry top coat of course!) since I don't have a quick dry at the moment my option was painfully slow!  Once it was actually dry though it wore a lot better than I expected and had some tip wear but no chips and no lifting by the time I took it off.  So despite the long dry time, the end result was worth it.
