OPI Dating a Royal

Back in the summer while on vacation in the UK (Edinburgh, to be specific), I stumbled upon a Sallys going out of business. There were clearing out their OPI at 3 GBP a bottle, which is a great deal (even by US prices)! I picked up two bottles of Absolutely Alice which were laying by the cash register. When I was about to check out, DBF pointed out a huge OPI display in the corner... I was already overwhelmed, but I took a quick look. I saw a lot of core colours, and looked at Dating a Royal. I had heard a lot of good things about the polish on NB, but at that time I was still weary of blues like that! I didn't get it then, but while I was visiting family a couple weeks ago, I did pick it up :)

I was a little apprehensive, because it reminded me of American Apparel Cameo Blue (which I ADORE), but I was wrong! Yay! No Dupes!

OPI Dating a Royal - Beautiful blue jelly!



Comparison: OPI Dating a Royal and AA Cameo Blue - They are in the same family of dusty blues, but obviously Cameo Blue is lighter and a creme.

  5. Happy you decided to get this because it looks amazing on you! I NEVER happen upon a store going out of sale with a killer nail polish stash *sigh* But anywho, I came by to let you know I featured this swatch on my blog! Thought you would like to know :)
