Battle Of The Baby Pink Nail Polishes

I’ve been looking for the perfect baby pink nail polish for such a long time. I’ve tried the infamous OPI Mod About You but I didn’t really like it and so I sold it. These are the current 4 I have:

l-r: Nails Inc Elizabeth Street, OPI Sweetheart, Eyeko Petite Polish, George Natural Rose
l-r: Nails Inc Elizabeth Street, Eyeko Petite Polish, OPI Sweetheart, George Natural Rose
As you can see the Nails Inc polish isn’t a pink, it’s more of a cream but it does have a really nice shimmer. This one only took 2 coats where as the rest took 5 or 6. Definitely not something I want to be doing on a regular basis. I’d say the George one has probably won as it’s the most pink but I’m still not happy with it. I always find with baby pinks that they never apply bottle colour and are always very sheer.
I’m not sure what sort of pink I’m after, I guess I’ll know when I find it but it has to become opaque with only 2 coats.
What are your favourite baby pinks?


  1. I love baby pink polish too, but I have yet to find one that doesn't apply streaky or take 6 coats to show up. I think most of these are fine when you're going for a french manicure because you don't really want too much color anyway, but when you wear them on their own, most baby pinks seem to majorly fail!

  2. @Prettyinthedesert, I totally agree! I just want a baby pink polish that isn't meant for french manicure :) xx

  3. My favorite is Essie Ballet Slippers. If not that, then Essie pretty much owns the market on pale pinks. Essie will definitely have you perfect pale pink.

  4. @Jennifer, I'll have to have a look at Essie's polishes then :) xxx
