OPI Blush Hour

OPI Blush Hour is a sheer pink base with pink and purple glitters. I must admit, this polish was kind of a bust for me. First, I tried wearing it alone...

It took four coats to build to opacity and the end result looked kind of muddled. I also experienced some pretty bad bubbling. So I decided to see if I preferred Blush Hour layered. Here it is over Essie Ballet Slippers...

...but I wasn't completely in love with the layered look either. Plus I feel like the tinted base kind of stifles the layering possibilities. I feel like OPI should have either made the base more opaque so it would look better worn alone or just left the base clear so you could layer this polish over a wider variety of base shades.

So overall, this shade didn't live up to my expectations. I tried, but I just wasn't feeling it. :-/ What was the last polish you were disappointed by?


  1. Aw I see what you mean. It probably would have looked a lot better with a more opaque base

    1. Yeah, as it stands it's kind of a weird in-between. You can't really wear it alone and you're so limited in what you can layer it over. :(
