notd | papaya punch

First off, apologies for the rather slapdash application, this was the nail polish I took on holiday and I ended up painting my nails at the beach - completely normal, right? (I know, I've really got to stop talking about my holiday).
China Glaze Papaya Punch was part of the Island Escape collection, but it's still available and I've included a link to the eBay search where you'll find the cheapest prices here.
I didn't bring a top coat with me so to even out the colour I had to apply a third coat, but with a top coat two would suffice.
I'm not sure if it was because this polish is quite old or because it was being warmed up by the sun, but the formula was a tad gloopy. 
Papaya Punch is a completely different kind of orange from others I own, it's a tangerine colour that's not quite neon, but it's certainly more in that area than it is peach, it goes really well with a tan but started chipping after two days - but that's without a top coat.

I'm thinking of starting book reviews on here. What do you think, should I do them or should I stick to writing about makeup and nails?

  2. I just bought the OPI Pool Collection. I believe my orange "Sun Worshiper" is close to the color on your pic...I love it so much! I am currently wearing it on my toes with Essies "Set in Stones" on the big toe!

    I would like it if you checked out my blog! http://adthefashionblog.blogspot.com/

  5. Great colour! Shame about it being gloopy, but it could just be from the heat.

  6. This has made me want to be on holiday taking nail of the day pics so badly! I do find China Glaze polishes a bit too thick/gloopy sometimes.. but it depends on the shade I find - odd.

    As for book reviews its a yes from me!
