Hi guys! With Valentine’s Day just one day away I felt compelled to wear a festive pink manicure this week. So today, I’ve dug out OPI Be a Dahlia Won’t You? from their 2011 Nice Stems Collection. It is a sparkly fuchsia shade that just can’t help but catch your eye. I had thought about doing nail art for Valentine’s Day like I did with my Christmas manicures but I just didn’t have the energy to think of something. But, a nice classic pink manicure is always festive and Valentine’s Day appropriate in my books!
OPI Nail Envy Maintenance (1 coat)
OPI Be a Dahlia Won’t You? (2 coats)
Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat (1 coat)
OPI Be a Dahlia Won’t You is slightly on the sheer side so even with top coat there is very, vert faint visible smile line. I’m sure a third coat would eliminate this. While it applied a little bit on the thin side, the polish was quite easy to control and didn’t pool at all. Honestly, I think I prefer a slightly thinner formula because I’m not tempted into slapping on thick layers that never dry. I’ve had it on for about 3 days now and so far I am chip-free. Just a bit of minimal tip wear that is barely visible. So far I’m impressed and it’s another polish I will need to try to remember more frequently. Honestly, I don’t think I have worn this since I purchased it when the collection was released in 2011. This is why I barely ever buy nail polish anymore. There are so many that I completely forget that I own.
What do you have on your nails today? Did you have more energy and do something fun for Valentine’s Day? Let me know in the comments down below!

So pretty and feminine! I think this is probably one of my favourite shades of pink to wear.
Thank you! It’s definitely a beautiful pink shade. I love wearing bright ones like this, I find they really catch my eye throughout the day.
