A fantastic, uber-flattering pink-based red, from the OPI 2008 Spring/Summer “India Collection,” this was a bear to photograph in a color-accurate way. In fact, I never managed it, and after looking for others’ photos of it online to see if it was just as difficult…. well, yes, I discovered that pretty much no one captured it accurately. Frustrating.
At any rate, here’s what I did come up with.
ALL the above shots were inside, using my OTT light – meaning, it’s supposed to mimic natural sunlight, right? Usually, Mr Ott combined with my camera on micro and no flash is right on, but not so good at capturing this one.
So going outside in the morning light on a different day helped a little, a very little bit.
I would be very happy with these photos if they’d’ve captured the true color of this polish – because they did come out not bad. Ah, well. Maybe it’s time of year and lighting – who knows. 🙂
