Index to pinkie: OPI DC Cherry Blossom, OPI Hottie Pink, OPI Elephantastic Pink, Sally Hansen Flamingo
OPI DC Cherry Blossom: This is the brightest and most pigmented of all these polishes. It applies almost like old-formula OPI and it's such a gorgeous true hot pink.
OPI Hottie Pink: This was an Ulta exclusive from a few years ago, it's a softer hot pink that is definitely on the cool side of the spectrum. This is three coats.
OPI Elephantastic Pink: I love this polish so much I can't tell you. I have a thing for elephants though. However the yellow in this pink polish makes it soft and wearable, it's great for warm-toned people. It's really different than your average hot pink polish.
Sally Hansen Flamingo: The Salon range is gone, but you can still find these discounted in drug stores sometimes. I got mine for about $1. It's a bit darker on the nail than the others, but I like the formula. Two coats will do. And I like the warmth of this polish a lot, it really does remind me of a Flamingo, which I guess isn't surprising ;P

Index to pinkie: China Glaze Peachy Keen, Color Club Coral Cascade, OPI Back to the Beach Peach, Lippmann Daytripper
China Glaze Peachy Keen: There's really not enough pink in this to call it coral, but it looked pretty with the others. Two coats of perfection make it a perfect peach.
Color Club Coral Cascade: This reminds me more of a peach as well, but the added pink (and the name) is why I added this for comparison. Very sheer, but nice.
OPI Back to the Beach Peach: Peach... maybe. I'll call this a blush coral. It requires three coats, but the jelly finish is to die for.
Lippmann Daytripper: A jelly coral that is super bright and gorgeous. Three coats will give you great coverage, and it reminds me of my favorite Chanel Glossimer, Sirop!

I used China Glaze Admire and this swirly pattern from Konad plate m64 over Zoya Savita. I liked the bold shiny chrome over the matte finish and the pink sheen of Savita was really set off nicely by the pink chrome. I really liked this combo. I also tried it with Seche Vite topcoat which darkened the final product up a bit and made it much more shimmery in both the base and design colors. Below you can see topcoat on only my pinkie and middle fingers.
