Today I have a post I was really looking forward to. Awhile back, Cait from Polish Hound came up with the idea of "Nailstalgia" which was an idea to showcase older shades of polish that were more well known, some of them from her stash of untrieds. I thought this was a fantastic idea! Her first post featured China Glaze For Audrey, which pushed me to try the same polish from my stash. The idea took off and Cait as well as myself and Caroline from Good Lack, Nail! decided to make this a monthly post. The theme for this month was pink, but both ladies decided to try OPI Elephantastic Pink. What a perfect reason for me to hunt it down and add it to my collection ;)
OPI Elephantastic Pink is from the 2008 India Collection and it is described as a carnation pink cream. When I put this on my nails, the first thing I thought was.....pink salt water taffy. That led to a google image search of pink salt water taffy and my suspicions were correct! I loved the color of this polish but I found the formula to be a bit thin and streaky. I ended up needing three coats plus topcoat to even everything out.
And just because I couldn't resist....
