Manicure Monday: Mani Favorite OPI Mod About You

When you're constantly testing out new nail polish colors, you end up neglecting some of your tried and true favorites. Sometimes I talk about how some colors look like the shades I turn to most often, but funnily enough, I haven't actually shared some of those polishes with you. Too busy swatching all the new colors I get my hands on.

So, I'm starting a new Mani Monday type post. It'll be the same as any other manicure sharing post, except, we're going to call it the Mani Favorites. In these posts, I'll share some of my favorite nail polishes -- even if they're not the newest, freshest, just-released colors.

I've done that from time to time already. But from now on, I'll go ahead and label them as such, if only to give them the bit of extra praise I think they deserve.

One of my main faves is OPI's Mod About You. It's just one of those fun pinks I can't get enough of. I mean, just look at it's super pale, creamy goodness.

This is one of those colors I reach for again and again. I love the shade, which I think is aptly named. I could totally see this shade as a lipstick on a mod-inspired shoot. The formula isn't the most awesome on Earth, but only because these milky, creamy, light shades have a tendency to streak a bit. But don't fret, that second coat evens it all out and you end up with a pretty awesome manicure afterwards. 

You'll find this shade most often on my toes, since I'm constantly swatching new colors on my tips. But whenever I get that feeling, it goes right on my fingers so everyone can see it. There's always a bottle of Mod About You on the polish rack at the ready for me. Definitely one of my favorite baby pinks. What are some of yours?
