OPI Kinky in Helsinki

Would you believe if I said that I only have one OPI polish? Well it's true, mainly because they are so expensive here and I discovered all those etailers just lately and didn't get to ordering OPIs before it was too late. Too bad, but at least there are still other great brands available and I think I'm more into China Glaze anyway.

Have to say though that I'm really glad I own this Kinky in Helsinki. The name is great (obviously) but I really love the color too!

It is really hard to capture the right color and I think you have all probably seen this already. I think it looks too red in these pictures, it's really more magenta, I think. This was two coats and with top coat and it was really easy to apply as it probably is always with OPIs.


I also did these flowers on top of Kinky in Helsinki with China Glaze Second-Hand Silk using a toothpick. They don't look so pretty in this close up picture but at least from a distance they looked kind of nice.

  1. does "kinky" mean something in finnish? i like the color, maybe too pink for me.. but i don't understand the name.. does it fits to the city? i've been to Helsinki twice and probably haven't seen anything pinkish :D

  2. I didn't know how to explain "kinky" reasonably so I looked it it on wiki and it says: "In human sexuality, kinkiness or kinky (adjective), is a term used to refer to a playful usage of sexual concepts in an accentuated, and unambiguously expressive form." So I think it's just one of those playful OPI names and it rhymes with Helsinki. :)
