When I saw this shade swatted online before the official release of the collection, I was intrigued.  I was drawn towards it even though yellow-based colours usually don’t do much for my skin tone.  I ordered the OPI Brazil minis because it had the colours I was interested in but didn’t want to commit to full bottles.

Besides the super pun-ny name (which OPI has mastered), I liked it because it’s different from anything else I have in my collection.  It is a orange-y mango colour, but is light enough that it’s more of a pastel than a deep colour.  It is much brighter in real life than I was able to capture with my camera.  I would consider it too bright for me to wear to work on it’s own, so I threw on a coat of Cult Nail’s Wax That and found it softened it perfectly.  It dulled the ‘in your face’-ness of the polish enough to be worn by me to work.  On it’s own, it would be the perfect pedicure colour for upcoming beach vacations.  I did find the formula a little on the thicker side and you can see some bald patches and imperfections in the pictures.  These were not obvious to the naked eye.  I would recommend  a very light hand in application.
