Can anybody recommend a nice spring opi gel colour for nails

I'm usually have a dark colour, as I have pale skin and that looks most classy on me,

However, my nails grow at an alarming rate so I thought a paler colour would last longer? (Or not look so dramatically different from the nail regrowth at the bed).

I like coral colours, anybody know of a nice shade?

I mainly eat Lobster is my summer choice .
Mostly for the name.

I quite like "tiramisu for two" but honestly even if you want a deep red right now, do it. I don't believe in seasonal colours.

Trouble is, I wear a lot of pinks/softer colours in spring and the red clashes!

Is a natural colour gel a no-no?

Oh and I only like a non glittery finish, I think they call it 'Cream'

Of course not, I had shellac Romantique for my wedding and much preferred it to the standard French mani so many other brides have (again to each their own)

I meant for a pale person, like me?

I have OPI Samoan sand in normal polish and nail envy and love it, am sure they must do it in gel. It's a lovely warm pinky beige. Don't pretzel my buttons is lovely too. I'm fairly pale and think they suit me well, love a neutral manicure!

Excuse Me Big Sur and Put It In Neutral are great colours for this spring. Also have a play with the opi web site. It is excellent.

Just lana'ing around!

I agree with Just lana'ing aroind - it's a gorgeous colour. I struggled to get hold of it last year but finally tracked down a bottle although I wish I'd ordered more as backup!
