Review: OPI Cajun Shrimp


Today's post is brought to you by my bon-a-fide Popeye's Cajun Shrimp, mmm-mmm. Haha, okay weirdness is over. I'm sat at work, here for over an hour and on my third cup o' joe. So excuse any random and unnecessary exclamations (!!!) OPI Cajun Shrimp is a beautiful coral-y red nail polish that is perfect for this summer season as corals are all the rage! I've seen this color on a few beauty blogs and have been trying to find it for ages at any nail supply store. I've found it before but the prices were outrageous. I bought this on Friday for $8.50 which I thought was a really good price.

I've heard that OPI nail polishes get a really bad rap for not being the best polish or just complete rubbish. Which I say to you, "what?!" This (as well as my other OPI polishes) are super creamy and are that lovely balance of not to thick of a consistency and not too runny. The pigmentation is great as well! I'm a two coat kind-a gal no matter what the polish but you honestly only needed one coat with this. No touch ups, no bald areas, and streaks.

I took this pictures about two days after I applied it and it still looks so lovely! Only now have I noticed any tip wear (which I honestly think is just my nails growing out a bit) and any chipping is because I foolishly pick at it. I'd say if you're a fan of corals this season to jump on this color! It's a perfect summer red; classy yet fun all in one! Don't let the bad rap fool you, this is formula is actually one of the best I've used! Even when coral goes out of style there's just enough red in it to make it a staple in your nail polish collection!

I'm now on a hunt for more colors. What are some of your favorite OPI nail polishes?
