Summer It Colour: Orange Nail Polishes & Best Pieces

Posted by Siofan | Tuesday June 21, 20115 comments

There's a reason why Mother Nature made so many tropical fruits in shades of orange—the colour is mouthwatering. This summer, from papaya to tangerine to good ol' orange, the hot hue is packed with punch. Brands like Mango, Zara, Banana Republic, and more, filled stores with bold and washed out orange pieces.

Reaaly hating some of this year's 'trend' colors. Went and bought myself a yellow Revlon nail polish called Yellow Seahorse. Absolutely hate it. I ended up having to mix in some of my pearl mica and yellow oxides to make it half decent, otherwise I wouldv'e thrown it in the garbage. Reminded me of the color of cat urine the way it was. It now looks more like a creamy yellow, which is nice, but I still regret buying this nail polish.

I have an orange summer dress that I can't wait to wear to the office. Orange is such a happy color like yellow. Also, that pair of orange wedges look really nice. It'll add a splash of color to any outfit.

Ditto to Ali's comment about being a little obsessed! I have an orange t-shirt but the colour's fading and it no longer looks as good - that's the big drawback to such saturated colours.

I love it on nails, as an accent piece like a bag, belt, hair accessory, or sandal, but I think I'm done wearing it as a main clothing item... for the moment, anyway ;)

I'm obsessed with orange polish these days. And I'd also love the orange pants like #12 or #13 but I don't think they come in my size at the moment!
