I do absolutely love corals. Search "coral" on my blog and you'll come up with dozens of posts where I squee and tell you that coral is the best thing ever. This one is too pink for me, though. It's a nice sheer-ish shimmer with blue flash. I prefer my corals to be an even balance of pink and orange, and if not I prefer them to lean orange. I don't hate this color, it just doesn't seem very me. It could be nice for my toes in the summer, though. I think this was from OPI's 2008 Retro Fun in the Sun collection that brought us other classics like Lemonade Stand By Your Man. As I mentioned, this polish is a bit sheer. I did three coats.
Before Give Me A Coral Sometime you all might remember that I was wearing 212-Sephora. Let me show you that manicure after five days.
After five days I had extremely minimal tipwear. I've found that Sephora by OPI is the brand that seems to last the longest on me. I remember wearing Metro Chic for like eight days in October without chips. Regular OPI doesn't do as well, which is so strange. I'd expect them to be the same formula. The only place I got a chip was on my right thumbnail.
Hardly noticeable, right? Maybe the fifty cents more that I pay for this brand is actually worth it.
That's all for today. I haven't been sleeping well at all lately and I just need to get through the rest of today without falling asleep while walking or something. Unfortunately I have to go dig through a giant curatorial file right after lunchtime. That will not be fun. Actually, it probably will be. But I'll be sleepy. What do you guys think about Give Me A Coral Sometime? Does anyone have a favorite coral? I'll have to think about what mine is. I have so many.
