February Pinks - Pink Flamenco

Welcome to Babbling Brooke's 14 Days of February Pinks!  I really enjoyed sharing 14 of my favorite pink polishes with you last February, so I couldn't wait to start polishing some old favorites and some new (to me) pink polishes.  For the next 14 days, I'll feature a different pink polish each day.  I hope you enjoy!

OPI Pink Flamenco

Today I have OPI Pink Flamenco, a "new to me" pink that came out in the Fall 2009 Coleccion de Espain.  I was expecting this to be a blue-toned pink, much like Shorts Story, so I was a little disappointed that it was so red (it looks pretty similar to Orly Pure Petunia).  Even in these pictures I'm thinking it photographed lighter than it really is.  Otherwise, it is a really pretty shade that got me a LOT of compliments during the three days I have been wearing it.  It is a dark pink creme with reddish tones.  It covered nicely with two coats and I have only had one small chip.

My index finger is looking a little weird because the ENTIRE top of the nail broke off (it was actually in two pieces - and painful) and I glued the broken piece of nail back on to my actual nail (and sort of my nail bed too, unfortunately).  Since I took this picture, the edge of it has chipped off too.  But honestly, for what this little nail has been through, I'm thinking it looks surprisingly good (and still semi-long!).  I probably won't be photographing my index nail much for the next few weeks though!

Check back tomorrow for another February Pink.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thank you guys so much for your kind comments!!!

Lucy, thanks :) I am doing nail repair so often (because my nails tear pretty easily), but not normally anything as extensive as this nail. My second finger had a pretty big tear (about halfway across) in December and it is nearly grown out now!
