OPI Nail Lacquer - Red My Fortune Cookie 0.5 oz - #NLH42
And this rich red is in my future.
OPI are good at reds and Red My Fortune Cookie is no exception! This shade was released as part of OPI's Hong Kong collection and is a very pretty shade of poppy red with a creme finish. It is fully opaque in two coats with a great formula even and streak-free application. The colour has warm undertones, with a hint of orange (thought it is definitely still a red!), so it is perfect for warm tones. Personally I think it would be universally flattering. It has good staying power, lasting around 5 days when paired with base and top coat, a wear time I find standard with OPIs. This is a very pretty shade of red, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable poppy red to add to their collection. Love this one, it's a go-to shade for me!
Cute, cheerful warm poppy red. The orange in it is good for warm skin tones (like mine). The formula is nice. That said, I much prefer Cajun Shrimp because it's more versatile, complex, and flattering (red + orange + pink). If I could only have one color in the world, it would be Cajun Shrimp. So if you're on the fence between the two colors, I'd suggest Cajun Shrimp to try first. Both are pretty, though.
Not my favorite. Typical red color, longevity not so great chips in about a day or 2. For some reason it takes forever to dry as well. Typical red, almost looks coral in certain lighting. Wouldn't buy again.
I thought this one was just okay. Bright reddish-orange creme. Lots of other polishes out there look just like it. The formula is decent but a little too sheer for my liking.There really wasn't anything special about this one. Wouldn't buy it again.
Okay, so great color for spring and summer, yes. ALSO fabulous color for this fall! Clear beautiful red-orange pigment looks beautiful with the autumn neutrals. Lacquer sweeps on the nail smoothly with coverage in a single coat if you're in a hurry. My current fave.
