NOTD Models Own "Coral Reef"

I wasn't sure if I'd already done a report on this as I've had it for a while. When I first received it from ASOS I was a little disappointed as I'd hoped for something a little bit paler. It is a fairly true bright coral and has that is it orange/is it pink?! thing in certain lighting conditions. Setting aside my own preconceived ideas I tried it and I have to say I quite like it...

It is fun for the summer, bright and hard wearing. I did use 3 coats of colour here but it doesn't take long to dry so it was fairly painless and this photo is 5 days after application so I think it is holding up well.

The photo below was taken by my iPhone (4 yes, get me!!) and is a fairly good representation of the colour though it might have a bit more of an orange sheen in real life!

Coral is a fun colour and I find it flattering especially with a tan. I think it would also be a fun base for some nail art if you feel adventurous...

What do you think? What other Models Own colours would you recommend?

EDITED - just as this morning I thought the above photo was a good representation of the colour, the ever changing nature of this in different lights has surprised me yet again! Here it is as a base coat on a leopard print-esque nail... showing its more orange side!
