Orange you glad?

I am not usually much of an orange or red polish wearer, but I do have my fair share of them. Likely in the pursuit of finding the perfect shade for me. It's not that I don't love them, because I do. Especially on other people. You will usually find me with a purple, blue or green polish on, and usually some sort of nail art. But, I am not afraid to try anything once. Well, perhaps I might cringe at an upchuck yellow, or a baby poo green.
So here we have a few of the oranges in my collection.

This is LA Girl Color Addict, in Indulge. Most of my LA girls colours (yes I add a 'u' to coloUr because I am Canadian) are great quality with good application and this one was no different. I do love the colour and although in these pics it makes my skin look a little red, it doesn't do that so much in real life. It is a medium orange with a gorgeous gold shimmer that I love so much. ♥

I'm His Coral Friend by OPI is from the SUNBelieveable Collection, released  in the Summer of 2009.
This is a beautiful coral colour. Love love love it. It's a two coater and the application is flawless. I think the finish is what really makes it stand out. It's very shiny, almost like a jelly, but it's more opaque than most jellies. I would say this  is definitely one to get if you like corals.

This is Hot & Spicy by OPI from the Hong Kong Collection in the Spring of 2010.
It is a medium-light orange cream. Good application.

OPI Cajun Shrimp is part of the OPI Classic Collection.
It's a bright chili pepper orange red. Super bright and summery.
It is very very close to Essie One of a Kind. I would say close enough to be called a dupe.

Ok that's all I have for today in the orange/coral department.
Suddenly I am craving a fruity summery drink.

Thanks for looking!

  2. Hi Becky, thanks for getting back to me. Ok that sounds great. I would love to make a shell chime. My youngest daughter collects shells ALL the time. I was just afraid of the shell cracking or something so I wondered if you had braced it somehow.

  3. Thanks for this article! Coral and orang nail polishes are great for summer! I'm His Coral Friend is cute!
