I spent most of the summer searching for the perfect tangerine coral. I've stared at page after page of swatches, and by now I've purchased 4 or 5 of these colors trying to find the shade I'm imagining in my head. The trick with these colors is that they are very difficult to photograph. Some corals look pink in photos while others look orange. I end up purchasing polishes because I love the look of the swatches, then don't care for the color in person. Girls Just Want To Have Fun was just another polish on my quest to find this color. It just so happens that I can't get color accurate photos of this one either!
Deborah Lippmann Girls Just Want To Have Fun looks more orange in photographs than it does in person, but try as I might I couldn't get the color just right! In person this polish has a bit of a bubblegum pink hue to it (but it's still very clearly coral). The color I'm searching for is the color that this looks like in photographs, perhaps one day I will find it!
Girls Just Want To Have Fun is a crelly/jelly formula. It doesn't apply like a jelly or dry semi-transparent, but it required far too many coats to be a true creme. I used 4 coats for the photos below because I had some issues getting a smooth flawless finish.
This bottle shot with flash captures the color a bit more accurately, although it still isn't quite pink enough.
Overall this is a gorgeous polish, even if it wasn't exactly what I was hoping for!
Are you ever disappointed in a polish after falling in love with the swatches?
