Iv tasted quite a few Dim Sums in my life (some of the most interesting ones are available in Dim Sum Bros in Ambience Mall). There was a playboy bunny dim sum, a soup dim sum, a noodle dim sum but never have i tried a Plum Dim Sum till this OPI Dim Sum Plum came into my life. I actually was in the search for a bright, pink nail polish that wears long so when Dim Sum Plum first came, i was a bit dissapointed. This was more deep, magenta purplish pink. Infact in natural light, it kind of leans towards maroon. But once i wore this on my hands, this was such a ‘ Bridal’ color that i knew that this one was going to be on my hands throughout the wedding celebrations!

OPI Dim Sum Plum Swatch- Its a little more maroonish in indoor lighting . I like it better in this photograph than i like it on my hand honestly.

Dim Sum Plum is a deep magenta with a purplish tinge, that is sure to ring in the summer season! Its definitely a vibrant shade though it doesn’t fall into the hot pink or neon category, but i think that’s what makes it so special- Its different! In doors, this looks slightly darker, but in  natural light the vibrancy of the shade really comes through!!!

I love Dim Sum Plums high shine, super glossy finish. I clicked these snaps on Day 3 of wear, but on day 1 the finish is really really glossy, almost mirror like shine !!! I also love that it lasts a long time and wears a solid amount of time, thought i have to add this does show some tip wear as compared to OPI Sweetheart which shows minimal tip wear . One area where Dim Sum Plum scores over other OPI’s is pigmentation, this is pretty much Opaque in one swipe ! Love that!! With the lighter shades iv had to apply like 3 of four but this is one , smooth, gorgeous polish!

Its a relatively easy polish to dupe i think, its a color that Indians seem to love so i would be surprised if Lakme or Maybelline didnt have a similar polish to this one!

Verdict: A-

Price: Rs 520/- from urbantouch.com

Recommendation: OPI Dim Sum Plum is a deep magenta nail polish that is a pretty, vibrant color for summer !!! Its definitely a bridal color and this is what i am sporting  as i leave for hyderabad. (If you are reading this on 2nd July which is when this is scheduled to go up, then not only have i reached hyd, im already married and on my honeymoon!). This is sturdy and long lasting but shows  tip wear by day 3.

This reminds me of Revlon’s Plum deluxe nail polish, very close dupe I’d say. I’m digging the plum looks perfect with all the bridal attire. Pssst I wore Revlon plum deluxe on my Bridal reception ;)
