First up we have OPI's Koala Berry. Now I picked this up just for the name itself but it happened to be a gorgeous hot pink so it coincided with the work theme which was a bonus. I debated against posting this picture as it doesn't read true to colour AT ALL, but I've decided it might be nice to have the picture up as a way to see all sides of the colour. I can always post extra pictures if I manage to capture it just right!

These pictures are reading incredibly red but I assure you it is a hot HOT pink. Ugh these pictures almost make me cringe a little. Oh well, if you google it you'll find that some people did manage to post it true to colour, whereas others turned out with pictures very close to mine. I'm not alone!
Next up we have Reggae to Riches. Now I know that this isn't a true pink. In fact, I have it swatched on both my pink AND purple wheels just because I couldn't decide where it really fell. Okay, it really isn't pink at all, but it reads pink enough that I figured it would JUST pass the work guidelines. I ended up bringing the actual bottle to work with me just in case I had to prove it was... kind of.. pink. The vibrant blue duochrome isn't as apparent in the bottle, however, my pictures say differently. Boy does that duochrome glow in this lighting.
I'm obviously being very generous when I say this is pink. Lets say it is fuchsia with a kick. The application of this polish is amazing and I always get great wear for the time I have it on. I'm one of those people who changes their polish every two days so I can't say long term, but after two days it looks as if I just painted them. I'm already on my second bottle of this gem, it's one of my absolute favourites.
As you can see, I'm not doing too well with this pink thing, but I really am trying! >.< My idea of pink has been tainted by my love of cool colours. I am soooo not a warm colour person. I think I'm doing much better with the neutral/nude side of the work appropriate spectrum. I'll post those soon! Any pink suggestions are definitely welcome!
For some reason I couldn't get this song out of my head while typing this post. Mentioning reggae just screams Bob Marley to me and so I will leave you with one of my favourite songs. This is my message to you ou ou ou!
