OPI A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find

This is 3 coats of OPI A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find, a bright, red-based orange creme, and one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri topcoat.

I have swatched this polish in the past, when I reviewed the collection, but I have never actually worn it as a manicure.  Honestly, I was never really taken with the color, as when I swatched it, I didn't really like it with my skintone. 

However, I was taking my youngest nephew out for his birthday on Saturday, and I needed a bright orange-ish polish to go with the outfit I had in mind.  A Good Man-darin... came immediately to mind.  And after applying it, I must say that my first impression was not the right one.  I loved this polish with my skin-tone.  Yes, it's an orange (which sometimes doesn't look so great with my pink skin), but this one worked, probably because of the red in the base. At any rate, it's a fantastic color and I can really see me wearing more of it this summer.

The formula on this one was good, better than good actually.  I had no issues with application, but I did need 3 coats to reach fully opacity.  Though, if you wore a sticky base coat (which admittedly, I stubbornly refuse to wear) you could probably get this one opaque in 2 coats.

A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find is from OPI's spring 2010 Hong Kong Collection (I apologize for previously stating 2011... my years are starting to run together :P), and per OPI's website, it is still in their line-up.  OPI polishes retail for $8.50 a bottle.
