Hello Darling Oops...

I'm always on the hunt for Holy Grail shades especially when it comes to black and white. I purchased Hello Darling Oops... from the Crazy in Love collection some time ago in the hopes it would be an opaque white and while it doesn't fit the bill it's a gorgeous white and a nice accidental find. My go to stark white these days is Cult Nails Tempest but Oops... is great when you need something soft and delicate.

Oops... is a milky marshmallow white jelly. I love how soft and squishy it is!! The formula isn't the easiest to work with and if you're impatient like me you'll have to go back in to cover bald spots - you can see some unevenness on my ring finger. Definitely take your time with application. 3 coats is pictured.

What's your favourite white? Thanks for looking as always!

What they say:

"OPI joins celebrity partner Gwen Stefani in announcing seven new limited edition nail lacquers for 2014, featuring standout color in breakthrough finishes. Highlights from the collection include a bold red lacquer that pays homage to Gwen’s signature lipstick, a new semi-matte satin finish in shades of gold and black, and a mirrored chrome paired with a special base coat.

Inspired by the 2013 Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala that featured the theme “PUNK: CHAOS TO COUTURE,” OPI Executive VP and Artistic Director Suzi Weiss-Fischmann decided to create a collection of lacquer celebrating the role of music as a major influence in fashion."
