NOTD: OPI Shorts Story

With its vibrant shade and fun pink hue, Shorts Story is the perfect shade to honour the last few weeks of summer!

Tired of bare nails, I searched through my collection for a pink cream finish polish that would complement a variety of summer outfits. With a quick breeze through my OPI drawer, I rediscovered Shorts Story which was released with OPI’s 2009 Paige Denim Brights collection.

This polish has a decent level of pigmentation and looks opaque after only two coats. In my opinion, this pink is neutral leaning towards cool toned which is perfect against my cool pale skin. It’s bright but not neon or harsh.

My only real complaint about this polish is the brush. Mine has OPI’s newer Pro Wide brush which is too large for my small nails. I had to keep an orange stick close by to sweep away polish that covered my cuticles.

Overall, Shorts Story is a great medium bright pink shade. I wish I had worn it more often this summer!
