This post is dedicated to fivezero. I had lodged a complaint on her blog a few weeks ago because I felt she had been featuring too many orange nail polishes on her blog lately. I mentioned that I only owned 2 orange nail polishes whereas she had 20 minimum. Well, it turns out I actually own 3 orange nail polishes, and in the spirit of Halloween, I will showcase them here:
L to R:
• Essie Braziliant
• L’Oreal Nail Color Orange You Jealous
• Essence #46 Wake Up! (this was the one I didn’t realize I had)
I’m testing out something different for this post – a black background! I’m not sure how I feel about it – I think it makes colours look wonky. I mainly did it for the Halloween-y theme of orange and black. 😛
My favourite out of the 3 is Essie Braziliant – it has such an interesting flash of hot pink shimmer.
Even though the L’Oreal shade Orange You Jealous contains the word “Orange” in the name, it is the least orange of the bunch – it’s more of a peachy coral:
And the surprising hit of the bunch is Essence Wake Up! It’s a fantastic formula, almost opaque in one coat, and a true orange cream shade:
Bonus: I picked up these nail art stickers from the dollar store:
And proceeded to pretend that I do nail art:
(black polish is Illamasqua Boosh, and orange polish is the Essence Wake Up)
No, I did not wear this out. I’m rocking just Essence Wake Up, straight up. What are your favourite orange nail polishes? Are you wearing a Halloween themed mani?
