OPI Strawberry Margarita {and a coral question}


I am seriously loving this color right now.  Just the perfect summery, preppy, Lilly-esque pink for an unusually hot, hot, hot week in the Pacific Northwest.  

Now, anyone have ideas on the perfect coral?  I need a good coral for Florida in August...

Happy Monday!

  3. I like OPI's Los Cabos Coral. It's subtle and not too orangey.

  5. Do you find that Strawberry Margarita fades if exposed to (a lot of) sunlight? I have had that happen to my sister and a friend. Weird. It is a fab color, though. For coral, I think Cajun Shrimp is good for bright and Chapel of Love is good for more subtle.

  6. thanks Heidi! I was srsly hoping you would chime in here too :) I've only had the SM on since Sat and trying to stay out of the sun so I haven't noticed any fading. I will add C of L to my list to check out too. I know you know your colors. :)

  7. Sweet Tea - if you want to see a lot of coral options (b/c I admit it's not a color I wear much), go to Community Nail Polish gallery:

    This is the "orange/coral" page. Lots and lots of pics that people upload with nail polish. I think you need to register to do the search, but this will get you started!

  16. OPI's Cajun Shrimp is a touch too orange for me, but I love, love, love Essie's Coral Reef. More of a pinky coral than an orangey coral. :)
