OPI Dating a Royal (+ my Memorial Day manicure)

OPI Dating a RoyalOh Dating a Royal. A long time favorite that took me ages to get my hands on. Originally released with OPI’s summer 2008 Mod About Brights collection, it is not part of the permanent collection for good reason. It is amazing.

Dating a Royal is a royal/cobalt blue jelly. Because it’s a jelly the formula is, of course, a bit on the thin side. I used three coats in my swatches and was very happy with the level of opacity three coats gave me.

There are more swatches of Dating a Royal below the jump along with my Memorial Day manicure which has nothing to do with Dating a Royal! I just did a simply manicure using Essie Hip-anema with a silver glitter accent nail. I wore a blue dress so the red and silver manicure worked really well.
