Oranges aren’t that easy to wear – not to me anyway. I’ve been on the hunt for an orange nail polish that compliments my skin tone for a while. I eventually came across this beautiful salmon colour called Toucan Do It If You Try by OPI Nail Lacquer in a Sally’s store in Virginia. I got this in the fall and it’s not the traditional Christmas friendly colour so I paired it with a gold to make it a bit more festive.
Topcoat Used – No
APPLICATION & CONSISTENCY
This nail polish applies easily but is quite thick. As a result, you cannot really do a single coat without it being a little uneven so two coats are probably best for the average novice. There is really no running so it is easy to control the application to avoid the polish spilling into your cuticle. OPI, in general, is a good polish for newbies who find it challenging to control the spread of polish during application. The nail polish can be opaque after one thick coat but not even. So, I suggest you do two medium quotes then a topcoat if it still isn’t smooth but it should be after two coats. Ultimately, the finish is really beautiful with or without a topcoat.
LONGEVITY & REMOVAL
This polish lasted me about 3-5 days and should do the same for you with a topcoat. I do gardening, cooking and cleaning myself so if you’re not handy like me, maybe it could even the entire week.
Removal is easy. There is no staining of the cuticle when proper nail polish removal practices are observed.
This is the best salmon coloured nail polish that I’ve seen in a while and is simply beautiful. It also can be worn year round thought looking off-season. I do believe the formula could be a bit more smooth. I’d expect this type of performance from a darker polish. So, this polish gets 4 out of 5 stars, falling down only in application. That could just be due to age, however, as this polish came out in the Brazil 2014 Collection so it’s not the newest polish around. Ultimately, I’d still buy it again.
