Nail of the Day – OPI Crimsun

 Yes, it’s another Holographic polish, but this is one I’m a little disappointed in …

 Application was exceedingly sheer, meaning I still have visible nail lines, and … it’s pink. Not this orange shade you see here under my halogen lights, and not the crimson you assume from the name.  It’s pink.  Fuschia-pink under most lights.  Not a bad colour, as it happens, but not what I wanted!

Also, the holograph-effect is barely visible on the nail.

It’s a nice polish.  But not a great one. I like it, but I don’t love it. It’s also started to chip after about 18 hours on the nail.  Boo!  Holographic polishes are notoriously chippy though, so maybe that’s me being picky. I bought mine from eBay.

    ooh that is not the colour I expected to see when I clicked on the link!

    However, I really do like the colour it looks in the photos.

    Shame it's not like that in real life.

    I had one of these… they're from a very old OPI collection I think. I didn't like it on me, ironically it was too orange for my liking, so I swapped it!

    It looks nice to me! But I haven't seen it in person, and am not a fan of fuchsia generally. It crossed my mind that this may be an eBay fake, if the colour and quality are not what you expected?
