OPI – Cajun Shrimp

OPI - Cajun Shrimp Yall. Can you believe that Cajun Shrimp was originally released in 1990? It’s been a salon staple ever since and it’s my go-to polish for the perfect poolside pedi.

OPI describes Cajun Shrimp as a spicy shade of coral. It’s about the spiciest a coral can get, but I’m okay with the description. It’s my favorite summer almost red. It’s bright and fun without being eye searing or dated. It’s easy to see why it’s been around for so long.

I used three coats to get rid of any visible nail lines, and I really love the classic shiny finish.

If it’s not already a part of your collection… my question would be: Why? This polish is very available. It retails for $9.50 and you can snag it at at any of your usual favorite spots: Ulta, Amazon, Target

  1. Oh I absolutely CAN believe that this was first released in 1990. I was 26 then, and this shade had by then already been super popular for like 10 years… it was the shade that just wouldn’t die, ha ha. I’ve never been a fan of it, partly because I’m not into brights, and partly because it reminds me of something an old lady who lives in Florida would wear. I’m too close to actually being an old lady for that to be even remotely acceptable, ha ha. Fave summer pedi color: Julep’s “Freida”… a glass-shimmer gem that’s a cross between candy pink and hot pink… summer in a bottle!

    1. Okay so this is intriguing – I just looked up Freida and that makes me think of old lady Florida! I love how different people perceive different looks and colors.

  2. Just got my toes done yesterday in Opi This gown needs a crown with top coat. Looks great with a tan, it’s like having jewelry on your toes lol. I think silver is an underestimated pedi color in general.

What do you think?
