More Bright! - OPI Cajun Shrimp

I think that this might be a Polish or Perish favorite! My bottle of OPI Cajun Shrimp was sent to me by the fabulous ilexica, who already had a bottle herself. It is also one of Piff's summer faves. And now, it has a permanent place in my stash!

It's not coming out as shocking in the picture as it is on me in person, but it is a hot-hot-hot pinky coral!

While I prefer Essie Geranium on my tips, I think that this will be a favourite pedicure shade of mine this summer! In fact, I think I'll put it on tonight...

Is there a shade that is universally loved among your friends?

The three shades that I think every single one of my friends own are Essie Wicked, Essie Fiji and OPI Russian Navy. No idea why but we all love them and wear them all the time!

I am LOVING that coral as well! So bright! I just got my first hot pink/coral that I'll be posting up this week! They can be so fun!

Pretty said...

Such a classic! This was one of my first opi polishes ever, and I still love it. I think I even have the old black label bottle hanging around in my stash. I think this, LPAD and YDKJ are the two most common polishes in my friends' stashes.

This was the first polish I ever bought! I think I lost or swapped the bottle a while back, but I NEED to get a replacement asap!

Katy said...

WOW! I want this color! It's beautiful! I don't have a lot of pinks but I NEED this one, so gorgeous :)

K2K: I am really loving this hot, hot, hot pink coral red on you, (I really love your description, LOL) looks so beautiful and really amazing g on your nails. I think it would be so sensational as a gorgeous pedicure color, I can really see that on your toes, Great selection.

Yay for Cajun Shrimp! I have 3 back-up bottles of it because I wear it ALL summer. My roommate and I wear this, Essie Mademoiselle, or OPI Big Apple Red pretty consistently.

Marta said...

My sister picked up a bottle for me a month or so back, and I have been painting my toes with it eversince!!!! Loooove it!
My friends and I all have a china glaze "chords" fetish... :)

hermetic said...

great color! I somehow always had the impression this one leans more orange, and I stayed away from it because of that. But on you it looks just perfect!

@Lacquered Lover - Wicked, Fiji, and Russian Navy are total classics!! I can so see why your friends own those. Which coral did you get?? Can't wait to see your post :)

@Pretty - Hahaha I get really excited about some polishes, eh? I am lame. But I think this one is really worth trying.

@elenaeris - Excellent!! Do you wear it on tip, toes or both?

@tata-nadaver - Thank you!

@Grace - Wow I didn't know this even was a black label at some point! LPAD and YDKJ are OPI staples to me as well...mmm...LPAD...i might have to do an anti-summer mani with that soon.

@Varnish Vixen - Wow what a good memory! I don't remember the first polish I ever bought....It's so perfect on toes, I think you def need to hunt it down again!

@Katy - This is somewhere between a red, pink and an orange, depending on the light. Try it!

@George - As always thank you for your kind words!

@Rachel - WOW! 3 back up bottles?? I have two (well 1.5 now) of Essie Tennis Corset, and thats the most out of any back ups that I have.

@Marta - Chords is very pretty! I love hearing about the polishes that people love/use/think of as classic!

@hermetic - It does in some lights, but on me it stays more in pink/red territory.

That is such a lovely shade!

Laura said...

I've got this on my toes right now! L-O-V-E!

Sandi said...

I WISH I had a friend that was as polish obsessed as I am. My all time favorite pedi shade is China Glaze's Seduce Me. My favorite tips shade changes day by day although Stroll probably has a bigger dent in it than any other bottle.

I need a bottle of this polish BAD. I have been meaning to get one recently. Your picture is making me want it now!

@Claire - Thank you!

@Laura - Woo!!

@Sandi - Awww you need a polish friend!

@deathbypolish - Luckily it is widely available!


Lucy said...

I can't believe I don't have this! Must do something about it. My friends arent' polish obsessed at all. If they dowear polish it's usually nudes. My best friend buys my drugstore polishes for me. She's always on the lookout for a new neutral. Thank God for blogs!
