Cleansing my Palette with OPI No Bees Please!

OPI No Bees Please - what an adorable name!

I know that normally when I sport sheers, the name Essie is usually on the bottle - I guess this is me mixing it up?

This is 3 coats:

No Bees Please is the perfect shade of sheer buff (basically my mannequin hands colour but sheer...) that leans a titch pink thanks to its gorgeous fuchsia shimmer. Typically sheer 'nude' shades are either too brown and make my hands look dirty, or too pink and just look...well, pink, but I think this one is pretty perfect. Plus, it applies beautifully and completely streak-free...I may have found a new HG shade here!

I feel so refreshed and cleansed wearing this - like eating watermelon after a big steak dinner. Sometimes I need to wear something clean and simple after going wild and crazy, and this definitely fits the bill - plus, its got a little extra kick thanks to the unique shimmer!

What's your favourite polish palette-cleanser?


P.S. Too excited not to tell you - I recently got my hands on Chanel Kaleidoscope! It is on its way to me and I can't wait to share it with you!

Very pretty!! My fave polish to cleanse the palate, and especially after wearing a few untrieds that turn out to be duds on me, is Sephora for OPI Metro Chic. It just makes me feel like myself again!

Bunny Masseuse said...

I'm amazed how good that looks on you... AND JEALOUS!

Wow, that looks like a complete dupe to Nails Inc's Sloane Mews. I usually wear that colour to school so that I don't get told off.

Alison said...

Yay! I am so glad you got your hands on Kaleidoscope! It's such a beautiful colour I am sure you will love it!

I think I have a mini of No Bees Please somewhere, it looks so pretty I think I am going to have to rediscover it!

@lolitadewdrop - Thank you! I think its this smooth because I used Barielle Camo underneath - it makes everything feel like glass!

@jaljen - Thank you - and the name is just too precious I think!

@Adrienne - Ahh! I've been eyeing that $OPI for a while now! I have Metro Chic and Run With It...I seem to only gravitate towards their neutrals!

@Jamie K - It's always good to have a decent nude in your back pocket!

@Baby D - It is kind of girly and delicate, you're right :)

@chickadee - I also love Metro Chic!! I have never posted it on here, but that reminds me that I should - I really love that colour :)

@Bunny - Haha you shouldn't be jealous!!

@Student's Guide - Yep no one would tell you off for wearing this baby...but I still like it. I'm boring.

@Alison - OMG Kaleidoscope is so gorg!!! I think you'd really like this one btw :)

No Bees Please is my favorite OPI color for my hands. Unfortunately it's been discontinued and is now becoming increasingly more difficult to find. If you do find it somewhere (like Amazon), stock up!
