OPI Nail Lacquer - Elephantastic Pink 0.5 oz - #NLI42
This carnation pink may start a stampede!
I am not a big pure pink cream nail polish person, but I do like Elephantastic Pink in spite of the overly punny name. This is a no-frills medium warm pink that looks great in just two coats. I like to use this as a base for glitter or glimmer top coats to give it more depth, but it is nice on its own too. The brush is nice and the formula wears well (though not the greatest wear IME.)
Bought this years ago based on the name. I don't wear it a lot but it is a beautiful shade. It's hard to describe it's pink but coral, changes a lot depending on lighting. Great colour for vacation imo. Would repurchase.
Elephantastic Pink in from Spring 2008 India Collection. It's a coral pink, cream polish. Like other reviewers mentioned, it can look different in different lighting conditions. I prefer in outdoor, when the coral/orange element is less noticeable. It applies thinly, but it is not streaky. I used 3 coats, but I could still see unevenness where I have ridges on my nails. I had no problems with longevity, but I change my nail colour frequently, so I cannot tell you how many days this polish lasts for. I think this polish is quite nice fun and bright, perfect colour for summer. But, I didn't like that the colour looks different in different light and I wish the formula was better. I see myself using this polish again (mainly for pedis), but I will not be repurchasing.
Salmon, orange, coral, warm pink mixture that transitions within these colors, depending on the lighting. Peppy. It makes me think of impatiens and geranium flowers, which I love.Full Size ImageI prefer 3 thin coats to eliminate any patchiness or settling, because I have a ridge in one of my toes that is pretty obvious with this polish. It is totally worth the effort. Cute, youthful color that says I love spring and summer. It is flattering on my warm skintone, even before a summer tan, but I'll admit, I had to wear it a few times; it was outside my comfort zone at the time. If you are warm like me, maybe this is a good fit. If you have cool skin, I would read other reviews before you buy it. Would I buy it again? No, because it changes color in different lighting: looks orangey in warm indoor lighting, and corally pinkish in other lighting. My favorite medium pink is I'm India the Mood for Love; I would repurchase that one definitely.
