OPI "Got a Date To-Knight" Swatch + Review

OPI "Got a Date To-Knight"
On Monday I talked about one of my new favorite pink products (the Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in "Pink Wink") but for the rest of week I'm going to take a walk down memory lane. As most of you know OPI is my favorite nail polish brand. I have a rather large collection but it all started with this one polish--"Got a Date To-Knight". My mom thought I was insane to spend over eight dollars on a nail polish but she insisted that if I was going to get one I needed to buy a color that I could wear with anything. Although, at the time, I wanted something a bit brighter, I have to thank her for being so practical. 

OPI "Got a Date To-Knight"
The polish, when applied to the nails, looks very similar to the color in the bottle. It doesn't seem that way in the swatch above but that's only because the bottle is practically empty. I only have a few more manicures before it's time for the bottle to go to nail polish heaven. "Got a Date To-Knight" is cream finish polish with a semi-opaque formula. It took about four coats to get the look featured above but (maybe) because I have so many found memories of this color that I don't mind painting on an extra coat or two. "Got a Date To-Knight" is my favorite pink OPI polish. It's subtle but not too subtle. It's not too-blue or too-red. It looks young and playful and sophisticated and classic. I'm also a big fan of OPI "Strawberry Margarita" (a darker, brighter pink) and OPI "Princesses Rule!" (a shimmery pink top coat). My review for "Princesses Rule!" will go up on Friday--so keep your eyes peeled!

  5. Love this color on you! I've always been a dark nail kind of girl, even in the summer. Clearly, I need to branch out!
