Pixi Vivid Coral

we tried to go down to Cannery Row today, and apparently... so did everyone else in Monterey! since i didn't want to pay $20 just to park while we ate, we ended up not eating down there. i'm thinking i probably won't be heading out to Cannery on weekends anymore... it's hard enough to park there on weekdays in the middle of the day :D

today our polish is Pixi Vivid Coral... which is another well named polish from Pixi! it is indeed a vivid coral red with a jelly formula. i was expecting the formula to need loads of coats for full opacity and was pleasantly surprised to really only need two! i used three on a couple fingers, just to see the difference, and there really isn't much of one. if you have long nails, you may need more coats to get rid of any visible nail line... but this polish does cover really well! my camera also refused to capture the brightness and depth of this color, although it wasn't quite as freaked out by Vivid Coral as it was by Pixi Summer Pink. this dries quite dull so you will definitely want to add a topcoat. the Seche Vite did cause it to back off some from my nail tips, leaving it more pink at the very ends. this was not nearly as noticeable in person as it is in the swatch!

one coat Orly Nailtrition, two coats VC on pinky and middle fingers, three coats VC on ring and pointer fingers, one coat Seche Vite.




i was really shocked by the opacity of this polish... i was expected a runny creme, so i was super delighted to find a fairly opaque jelly! the color leans more red than it does in the bottle, i'd love to find a polish that is the exact bottle color to have in my collection as well. Ria :)

Pixi polishes retail for $8 for .25 fl.oz and can bought online at PixiBeauty.com and Target.com, they can also be bought in Target stores!

:: this polish was sent to me for review, these are my honest opinions! ::
