Well hello, hello loves! How was your weekend, hope you had a lovely time? I finally arrived at the seaside and so far I’m having a blast! I’m trying to relax as much as possible and to catch up on some of my favorite reads. :) While I was packing for this trip, I had a look into my makeup collection and decided to take two nail polishes with me. The obvious one is Essie Cute as a Button (review here) and the other one is this gorgeous shade by OPI. I love them both for the summer and I figured that since I still haven’t reviewed this one, now it’s a good time to do so.
Party In My Cabana has a very special place in my life because I connect it with some amazing memories (am I the only one who does that?) and I really cherish it greatly. For starters, how adorable is the name?! It’s so summery and happy. It reminds me of the amazing beach-y summer evening we all know and love! :) Apart from that, the beautiful muted pink shade is right up my street and actually could be worn all year round, I feel like. I know it’s nothing special and we’ve all seen this shade before in many other brands and collections but I still adore it. I like how it looks on my cool-toned skin but I am pretty sure it would look even prettier on worm-toned girls. I know it’s pretty hard to find a nice pink polish that compliments wormer tones but I believe that this one is a great option. There isn’t any shimmer or glitter in the polish and it has a beautiful creamy finish. It is really glossy and I don’t need to apply top coat to get it as shiny as I like.
As far as the formula goes, Party In My Cabana is perfect. It is not watery, as some of my other OPI nail polishes and it’s just perfect and so easy to apply. It is not gloopy and it glides on the nail like charm. The brush is the standard OPI brush, which is not my favorite (I prefer Essie’s) but it works and prevents from streaking. Party In My Cabana is very opaque and you can get away with just one coat but I like to go with two, just in case. :) The staying power is also wonderful – it lasts for some good 5-6 days on me without chipping and with teeny tiny tip wear. Oh, forgot to mention that the polish dries out really fast and it’s completely hustle-free.
In a nutshell, Party In My Cabana is all rounder for me. The shade is lovely and would suit everyone, plus it’s a great alternative to the typical bright pink, which makes it much more classy and elegant. The formula is lovely as well and the staying power is impressive! If you are an OPI gal and you’re on a hunt for a new asset in your collection, than I can recommend Party In My Cabana with all my heart. Have a great week everyone! <3
