Summer Nail Polishes: Oranges, Corals and Peaches

I was asked about my orange/coral/peach nail polishes, so I thought I’d write about those.

But I have to warn you that I (and this is shocker for a lot of people, I understand) don’t really like such shades. I have managed to gather six and some of them are definitely no longer available. But this will give you an idea, I guess.

Orange and Coral nail polishes for summer

This post also made me look at my old nail polish features and realize that my photos/ manicure techniques have improved a lot, thank goodness.

Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Alarm

This is technically a red with a coral twist but I thought I’d include it anyway, as it is my favourite and I am so happy I got it. It’s perfect for summer time and I use it a lot, as you can see.  See it on the nails.

 Inglot Nail Enamel in 949

Bright true orange with a hint of very delicate shimmer that is visible in the direct sunlight. This is like summer in a bottle.

Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in 36 Crushed

I have got this one ages ago and don’t even have swatches of it. Metallic orange is so not my thing, it doesn’t look flattering on my skin tone and probably is not available anymore.

Essence Nail Polish in What Do U Think

I always get a lot of comments whenever I am wearing this shade and I have actually used it quite a lot and do like painting my nails with it from time to time. It’s a great  product, especially for the price.

Maybelline Mini Colorama Punky Orange

I haven’t worn it in ages and, in fact, it’s no longer available since Maybelline re-launched their  Colorama range. But this cool toned shade actually looks very appealing in the photo, so I may have to use for my mani soon.

MeMeMe Nail Collection Long Lasting Gloss in Spirited

This is a pastel peach  which would be a great option for those who are afraid of bright colours.

So what do you think? Maybe you can recommend me an orange/coral/peach that will change my opinion? I’d appreciate that.

  1. You know, the funny thing is I think some of these would work so well for fall too! They remind me of pumpkins hahaha. I love Alarm, it’s such an eye-catching shade.

  2. hmm I think my first comment got eaten, so sorry if you get two of these! These actually remind me of fall too because they look like pumpkins haha 🙂 Alarm is such a great shade.
