OPI Teeny Weeny Pink Bikini

Okay, so I can't take it anymore, I really want to post a NOTD. I suck pretty bad at describing polishes and I'm basically lost when it comes to categorizing finishes, so I apologize in advance. Hell, if you looked at my polish spreadsheet you'd notice I kinda gave up a quarter of the way in and everything became a glitter XD Anyways...

I was out running around the other day just to get out of the house, so I popped into several beauty supply stores. While I was at Beauty Brands, I noticed an entire display of a single polish, naturally I had to take a look at it. What I found was the Beauty Brands exclusive OPI shade, Teeny Weeny Pink Bikini. I couldn't decide if I had anything too similar to it, so I left it there. After checking my stash, I decided to head back today and pick it up. I'm glad I did!

Teeny Weeny Pink Bikini is a hot pink polish with fuchsia and pink glitter. Like most OPI shades, it's highly pigmented and has a smooth formula.

two coats, no top coat

I'm a little obsessed with gradients right now, so I sponged on some China Glaze Blue Sparrow and Frostbite, which turned out really nice.

I also picked up Essie Matte About You while I was at Beauty Brands, and I decided later in the day that I might as well try that out too.

I'm really pleased with the end result... well, aside from the fact that my nails are jacked and I ran out of q-tips and couldn't clean up my mani! Haha, oh well!


  1. ooh I love this! I haven't ever tried a gradient, what do you do or use?

  2. I just use some sponges I bought at Michael's in the paint aisle :) This definitely isn't the best gradient ever, but it was fun!

  3. HI Amber! You did a great job on the gradient! I need to try this someday!! I gave you an award, you can check it out here....

  4. Yay you!! :) This is cute. I'm going to send you a message with a link to the clean-up brush I use that I bought on amazon. You will seriously -never- use q-tips ever ever again!

  5. I found my sponges at my local dollar store. If you have one near you, you should check it out- they're just the wedges that people use for their foundation. They work great!

  6. ... And I gave you an award on my blog as well, but I didn't realize Traci already had... woopsies :) You get 2 of 'em!

  7. This is so awesome!! I love the colours, and still haven't decided if I like the glossy or matt version better haha. Great job :)
