OPI - Don't Be Koi With Me

My camera was sitting out in my car all night, apparently. Oh, well! It's not a very sunny day, but these will have to do! Once the weather perks up I will be able to get better shots (including close-ups).

This is a stock photo of Don't Be Koi With Me.

This is how it looks on my nails in natural light.

Today I'm showing you OPI's Don't Be Koi With Me. I used two coats with no base or top coat. I've had this bottle for at least 4 years, maybe longer, and I can't find any information on how long ago it was released. I have read in many places that this is usually a very bright (sometimes referred to as "garish") orange. As you can see, this is not the case with my bottle. I'd call it a coral-pink. I don't know why mine is so different from the bottles others have. Could it be the age of the bottle?

And with flash.

The formula is great. I'm assuming this is the norm with OPI polishes, but since this is the only one I own and I've never used it before I'm not terribly sure. It took 2 coats to get full opacity and evenness. I really like this color. It's not terribly unique, but it's pretty and would go with a lot of outfits. I'd buy it again if I ever ran out.

  1. I would say that is more than likely...99.99999% a fake bottle that was mislabeled. I've seen black label Kois that were still bright orange, no hint of pink whatsoever.
