So this is OPI I’m A Princess, You’re Not. I first discovered this polish when kittytokaren from Polish Or Perish blogged about finding it at an airport in April. Ever since then, it has had my interest… partially because of the color and a lot because of the name. Let’s be honest, who can resist the name? I believe this collection came out in 2009, but I haven’t seen these colors around often this year. If you’re lucky you can still stumble upon them like Liz and I did the other week in the first salon we walked into in New Orleans. There were two bottles left and we promptly snatched them up upon realizing what they contained.
If you’re irritated by VNL, then this probably is not the polish for you. I’m sure it would look good layered, but may turn some polishes frosty. It is very hard to capture on camera, if you look closely at every nail, you may be able to get a good impression: it’s sheer, not too white, mostly iridescent pinky/silver. In some lights it has a pinkish purple sheen, which is my favorite part of the polish; pink, purple, and teal glitter are throughout. I know, that’s a lot to handle, but it’s all there. I’m A Princess, You’re Not is similar to Pearl Of Wisdom, so if you have one, you probably don’t need the other. I don’t know how similar to Pearl Of Wisdom it actually is since I don’t have the latter and I imagine they’re both pretty hard for the camera to get a handle on.
I say, if you spot this nail polish somewhere, definitely pick it up. It applies well, has a cute name, and is something new to add if you’re not a sheer-polish girl. If sheers are your thing, you probably already own this as well as Pearl Of Wisdom (and I’m sure could school me in the differences), if you’re not picky either way, you’d be fine with this or Pearl Of Wisdom… maybe just replace the label so you can say “I’m A Princess, You’re NOT”
Update! I changed the top picture on this post, I wanted to show a better and closer-up shot. I left the other picture because it’s a good shot of shimmer and color. In case you’re all wondering why my nails are 2 different lengths here, haha 🙂
