Spring into Pink with Nicki Minaj for OPI’s Pink Friday

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 23 - 2012

As part of Nicki Minaj’s collaboration with OPI this month, her collection features the infamous pale, bubblegum-esque Pink Friday* shade that first reared its head with last year’s MAC partnership.  It’s not pepto-bright but the chalky pink will stand out against most skintones – it’s not one for shrinking violets.

The formula was thick and you’ll need a little patience to ensure a smooth finish unless you’re willing to go the 3-coat option which will obscure any streakiness from the first two coats.  I’m sure the shade isn’t massively unique but I don’t actually own any dupes and infact, only two others that are remotely similar – I don’t usually go in for these finger-popping pale shades but I do like how this one looks once applied.

Pink Friday (and the rest of the Nicki Minaj collection) is available to buy online priced at £10.50 from official stockists, Lena White.

While I was comparing pinks, I thought I’d paint up a nail wheel showing some of my favourite pinks…

    Opi Pink Friday looks lovely on your nails. But when I look at the wheel (this is so useful, thank you for doing it) the shades which immediately jump out of the page for me are:
    20: CIATE Fun Fair
    11: H&M Sinful Senorita
    15: CIATE Main Stage (omg, what’s the ciate obsession)
    and of course 2. NAILS INC, China Town: that blue peeking through: yum
    what does it say of me? That I prefer blue undertoned pink?
    Jesus Fun fair is just gorgeous!!

  3. The colour looks great on you, I would of thought it woulr be a right bugger to oull off! I think I quite fancy this polish, though I keep hearing the formula is a bit of a pain, so £10.50 seems a bit steep. Love the pink nail wheel, a great idea! I’m gonna get Mavala’s Miami I think, so pretty. :-) xxx

    Pink is such a happy colour for me :) Just looking at the wheel I’m smutting here grinning like a maniac. Stand out shades for me are 3,4 and 10 if I really had to choose, but I must forget where they came from as I cannot spend any moolah on pretties <—Message to self. x

    Chanel April is my new fave pink shade. Disregard that fact that April is my birth month and I tend to covet all things associated with it.
