Blue’s After My Heart

There can never be enough blue nail polishes. How much better can it get than a creamy, vibrant and glossy blue?

OPI Dating A Royal is one of those colors that instantly grabs my attention. Who am I kidding? Most nail polishes call to me like vodka to an alcoholic. It’s pretty, right? This color is very similar to Essie Mesmerize but they are not exact dupes. The main difference is that Dating A Royal is so sheer; it needed three coats while Mesmerize is perfect in one coat. Since I am a Konad freak, you know what’s coming….

This is the first time I’ve used this stamp and I absolutely love it. What do you think?

  1. Whoa this stamping is perfect! And I don't own this but I wonder if it's similar to Revlon's Royal. Still a gorgeous blue. (Blues are my fave!) 😀

    1. From what I have seen, Revlon Royal looks brighter than OPI Dating A Royal. It's gorgeous too. Dang it…now I want it too. LOL

      Thanks for the stamping compliment! 🙂

      1. they HATE the smell of nail polish they give me the evil eye when they see the nail polish bottle lol lol

    1. Thanks Mavel! So you already scoped out your new Sephora? I wonder when we will get the Julep polishes in store. I am not sure I will buy any because they are rather pricey…especially for the size.

  3. Oooohhh I love blue polish and I LOVE the blue and white combo! You make me think I need to save up and get like a billion Konad plates. I wish they came in sets like BM and RA. I definitely need Mesmerize (I'm sticking with the one-coater) now. 🙂 PERFECT job on the stamping, btw!!!

  5. I always pick this color up and end up putting it back before i can buy it. Have SO many blues! Do you know how this compares to Sephora by OPI Blue Grotto? They seem like they might be dupes to me, which is probably why i havent bought Dating a Royal yet. (Has anyone else noticed that OPI's colors for Sephora have a ton of dupes from the regular OPI line? :/ that screams laziness to me)

    1. You know, I'm going to do a blue comparison tomorrow so we will find out. I think maybe Blue Grotto is a little darker. I totally noticed that about the dupes in the SOPI line and I agree with you. Who are they fooling!? Have you tried any of the Betsey Johnson polishes?

    1. Thank you my dear! You're right…it does look like those mediterranean tiles. I really like this stamp but wish it was a little wider. It doesn't quite cover my whole nail except for my pinky. 🙁
