When I ordered this shade off of Fragrance Direct, the site was actually showing a coral coloured swatch. One big tip I can give you when you're buying nail varnishes off them is to open a separate page and google image search the shade you're looking for as sometimes they show a completely different coloured swatch to the actual colour of the nail varnish you're buying.
'Elephantastic Pink' is a gorgeous shade and it's also super summery. I love the fact that it's bright but isn't neon and would therefore be appropriate for wearing to work. I found that this shade of pink went with most things and was a really great colour to be wearing at this time of year - it's so summery! As with most OPI polishes the formula of this shade is super smooth and is relatively quick drying. The brush is a nice size and means that you can paint your whole nail in two strokes. Usually, my nail polishes don't last on my nails very well but recently I have been using OPI's Original Nail Envy and it has been working really well and improving the overall condition and strength of my nails. I have noticed that as my nails have been getting stronger, nail varnishes have been lasting longer. 'Elephantastic Pink' lasted on my nails for around 4/5 days and I was over the moon. Towards the fifth day there was slight chipping on my right hand but the left hand was absolutely perfect. I actually took the photo above as I was sitting down ready to take this shade off and re paint my nails with a different colour. I was seriously impressed with the way this polish lasted on me and it definitely confirms why I love OPI polishes so much.
The only slightly negative thing that I have to say about 'Elephantastic Pink' is that to achieve the super opaque colour that's photographed above, I had to apply three coats of the varnish. This didn't bother me because I wanted to apply a thick layer so it would last longer and I will definitely be wearing this shade a lot. The nail polish itself provides a glossy finish but to make it even more glossy and to help it stay on my nails a little longer I applied OPI's quick drying top coat.
