I looked at this colour with a mixture of disdain and wonder, isn't it a bit too "fun" for my nails?No sooner than putting it on did I exclaim in joy "this is just gorgeous"! My husband will testify to that!
This Coral polish in particular is easy to put on, has a lovely consistency and one coat is enough for a speedy application! I'll be slipping on a hula skirt and sipping my first margarita in the bar in no time whatsoever! I'd rather that than wait for a thick OPI to dry! I should also add that it looks fantastic on short nails as most brights tend to make me look like I have tootie frooties for nails. The picture below is one coat, yes ONE coat, and it looks great. One coat with no top coat lasted really well for a couple of days, a bit of tip wear but no snagging or chipping I am happy to report. It also feels very comfortable on as it is quite thin but well pigmented.
The downside is that it peels and chips like nobody's business if you don't anchor it down with a good top coat! Don't expect it to last as long as your summer holiday either, but what the heck. Doing your nails is the perfect poolside past time, that and reading a bodice ripper of a book! Another personal downside is that if you wear this colour in the evening, it does look like you've got Oompa Loompa Fluorescent nails!
This colour also reminds me of my very first nail polish at the tender age of 9. It was by Sindy (for those of you who don't know was the British version of Barbie). It smelled terrible and peeled in the most satisfying way as it wasn't real nail polish. Even though I didn't like it then, I like this now, it's weird what a bit of nostalgia will do!
