I really like this colour, but as an Australian I think the name is a little bit contraversial... That being said the colour is gorgeous. I've had it on my toes for 2 weeks now (with topcoat) and it still hasn't chipped. It's a warm and bright coral colour. At first I wasn't sure about the colour, but after a day when I got over the shock (I'm used to wearing true reds on my toes) it has really grown on me. Looks nice on my warm toned skin.

Simply put: the perfect deep, vivid coral. Just a perfect blend of rich pink and peach with soft shimmer. Stunning on tanned skin. When dry it can look almost like a vivid red at some angles--a Chanel lippie trademark coral-red. HG! HG! HG!

I thought Charged Up Cherry was my favorite color until I came across this in my nail polish box and put it on. I completely forgot about it - which I don't know how because I've ALWAYS LOVED IT! It's perfect for Spring and Summer.

Generous hues of oranges and reds. I'm partial to metallics but this is more shimmery than metallic. I absolutely love it.

It looks nice against my fair skin and I know once I get my Summer tan it will really pop. LOVE IT!

I have acrylic nails, so my nailpolish collection is quite small. I only have a few staples. I picked this one on a whim because I thought it looked like MAC's L'il Sizzler lipgelee, LOL! Turns out.. this shade is PERFECT for the summer! I absolutely fell in love with it, and immediately went to Ulta and picked up a bottle.

It took me forever to finally try this shade, but now that I have, it will become a summer staple. I know most describe this as a coral, but to me its more than that. Its a bright shimmery mix of coral, red, and orange. Its bright, but not too bright for tips in my opinion. The application was super-smooth and props to the pro-wide brush as always. This looks great with my cool/neutral skintone.

Yaaaaaay! I'm revisiting my old friend, A True Ab-original today! We've had 2 consecutive days of 80 degrees, so I'm ready for spring (even if nobody else is). I LOVE this polish and rank it among my faves. Like a reviewer below, I have a hard time defining this as either warm or cool so, um, neutral anyone? I'm pale at the moment (NC15-20), but the highly pinky coral color of this makes me look considerably less dead -- it brightens up my toes (I only wear this on toes) and make my winter-white feet (ick) presentable for early flip flop wearage. Love, love love this and will never be without it!

I LOVE this nailpolish. I don't know why it took me so long to try it out. I purchased it in May or June and I just now (Oct.) tried it out. It looks a little too bright and scary in the bottle but it looks just divine on my toes!!! It's a really pretty reddish coral color. It's very summertime and a little bright. It's true, it does make me look more tan and overall it's just a gorgeous color. I'm glad I have this polish.

This is a beautifully rich polish - a true coral with a nice sheen. The brush is fabulous and the formula never streaks. Wears great, too. This would look nice on fair and tanned skin alike.

I like OPI polishes because they go on so nicely - no clumping or unevenness. They also last for a long time with no chipping. A True Ab-Original is a summery shade - bright (almost neon) coral. I was looking for something orange-y and this worked for me. Here's a photo of my toes 1 week after application. No chips!

I have several bright orangy/coral colors, but this one stands above the others as a truly gorgeous color. I absolutely love this one! It even trumps my old fav of Cajun Shrimp.
