After this marathon of Birchbox-related posts lately I wanted to write about my new favorite nail polish shade: My Chihuahua Bites! by OPI. I know, I know, I’m a little late on the coral bandwagon but honestly this color really intimidated me for the longest time. I felt that it was really hard to strike the right balance between orange and pink. I wanted a coral that was more in the pink range and not too light. In addition my local BeautyBrands was sold out of most of their coral shades for the longest time. A couple of weeks ago I was at the store again and they had most of their colors back in stock and that was when I decided to take the plunge. And I haven’t regretted it one bit. And if I had BeautyBrands has an awesome return policy that would’ve allowed me to just bring it back if I didn’t like it.
My Chihuahua Bites! really is the perfect shade of coral, in my opinion. The picture doesn’t do it justice, unfortunately. The polish has more of a pink undertone, while in the picture it looks mostly red. The application is great, as is true for most OPI nail polishes I have tried so far. This nail polish has a nice consistency and goes on without any stripes. I used two layers to achieve full coverage. If you’re in need of a great coral, I highly recommend this nail polish.
Edit: I was able to take another picture that shows the color much better.
