I've been personally experimenting with a range of whites and recently fell in love with OPI's OPI Sensuous from the O.P.I. Don't Melbourne The Toast, which is basically a sheer shimmer formulation with a hint of mother-of-pearl iridescence.
Think abalone shells. If you're a fan of pearls, you will probably enjoy this hue.
When I first selected the bottle, I expected it to be a pearly white. In reality it is closer to a pale pink.
It reminds me of pink infused taupes, sands or fawn colors. One of my favorite results was pairing this polish with Twitter. Use your own imagination and layer as you will.
What can I say about this classy pearl infused hue? The list below summarizes my experience with this enigmatic hue.
Never fear, one coat is sufficient, but I always use two or more (up to five).
Two shades will flash a soft pink, giving your nails a very clean look. Three shades may showcase a hint of purple swirled through the pink.

3. Appearing to change depending on the light source shining on your nails, it's never boring.
7. Although you can achieve good nail coverage with just one coat, to pull more pink, purple or gold, experiment with multiple coats.
9. OPI Sensuous looks stunning with every skin tone and nail length.
11. Depending on whether it's worn alone or layered with other base colors, it can e worn all year long.
Whether in direct or indirect light, this polish is very shimmery. It look pinker in darker lights. Some reviewers have explained this polish as looking like an iridescent soap bubble from a bubble with a dash of pearly color. Just wiggle your fingers and you'll see a gorgeous shimmer.

If you're a sucker for a sheer opalescent polish with a gorgeous finish this one will fit the bill. It'll be great for Summer or any bride or girly girl looking to dress up her nails for any dressy event.
It's also sheer enough that it would be lovely to use to change up the look of other polishes in one's collection which means it can be worn all year round.
