NOTD: 17 Caribbean Coral

After a week of putting my nails through no polish boot camp (and not much to show for it, post to come), I finally allowed myself to paint them this weekend.  With the lovely, sunny weather we’ve had, I wanted a polish to reflect the same.  So a friend and I happened to meander into Boots on Saturday before lounging about in a beer garden for the rest of the day. Of course to take advantage of their 3 for 2 on EVERYTHING!

Initially, I picked up Barry M in Coral, but I’m not the biggest fan of the Barry M formula.  I’ve found it to chip quite quickly and much prefer 17 Fast Finish nail polish and found a similar shade to the Barry M called Caribbean Coral.  Upon second glance, it’s Caribean Coral, way to misspell 17, minus 10 points for you.

So despite the creative spelling, this is a gorgeous, bright orangey coral.  Perfect for hot weather or for wishful hoping for hot weather.

What’s your favorite spring shade?

  1. I’m in love with coral and peachy shades at the moment! Rimmel do a nice one called Apricot Punch, which is quite similar (I think it’s in their Lasting Finish range).

    Oh dear on their spelling!!!

    • I’ll have to check out the Rimmel polish, I definitely need more summery polishes in my life 🙂 Yes, the spelling does make me cringe a bit!

  2. I thought i was the only person who didnt think the barry m nail polish formula wasn’t the best. I have tried to get on with them but so far not the best luck. I do love their glitters thou lol. But i agree 17 nail polishes are fab i will definatly keep an eye out for this one. Great blog 🙂 x

    • Thank you! I really wanted to like Barry M too, I just find the formula to chip way too easily. I painted my nails Sunday with the 17 polish and they are just starting to show tip wear today which I think is pretty good for a bargain brand! xx

Leave me a comment, I love reading them and will try to reply to each one!
