NOTD: OPI Melon of Troy

I was feeling very Summery over the weekend and decided I need a bright and warm shade to match the wonderful warm weather.

OPI Melon of Troy
Melon of Troy - 2 coats in natural light
  • Lovely orangey coral-pink shade. Reminiscent of the sun ripen flesh of cantaloupes, hence its namesake of 'Melon of Troy' - just perfect for Spring. 
  • Has a half creme half pearly frost finish, very hard to describe but very pretty :) which is why it is one of OPI's best selling colours. I love the high gloss finish too.
  • As come to be expected of OPI's great 3T-free formula, it was easy to apply without being too streaky and was fast drying. I popped 2 coats of this on my nails and I was in bed 15 minutes later with no smudged nails the next morning. 
  • Great chip-resistance and resisted fading quite well. I did lots of scrubbing and cleaning the next day and the edges only experienced minor fading - quite impressive staying power given I didn't put on a top coat.
This will no doubt become one of my favourite Spring shades. What Spring shades do you like to wear on your nails?

Rating: 10/10. Easy to apply and great formula. An all time classic shade that suits all skintones. RRP A$19.95/US$9 at David Jones and selected salons.

This product was sent to me for review.


  1. LOVE that colour! I am officially starting a mission to improve my nails so I can start wearing pretty polishes as well (& not have them draw attention to the poor condition of my nails!) :)

  2. I chew my nails and find that nail polish helps to keep them long. When I am stressed, I'm picking on the polish rather than the nails... not a good look but at least the nails are growing and I can always put on a new colour :D

  3. I love this colour :) Great blog btw :)
