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

    This looks much nicer on the nails than I thought it would!Looks like it would be fun to stamp over. The nail wheel is making me drool, Ciates Fun Fair and the H&M holo are gorgeous!

  6. Leah says:

    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

  7. Lovely on you but I am not even close to being ready to give up my vampy winter colours yet!

    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.
