Tag: orange nail polish
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.
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
I did a post about relatively subtle peachy coral makeup and since it got a lot of views, I’ve decided to do one about bright orange.
I am not exactly the biggest fan of bright orange (on myself); I prefer fuchsia, so I was surprised to see how many products I have. So I’ve decided to feature only four, like last time: for lips, eyes, cheeks and nails.
So here we go:
Inglot Nail Enamel 949
I absolutely adore this nail polish! I have several different Inglot shades and this one is the best, it brightens up even a dull outfit and lifts the mood. In fact, I wore it last week and got a lot of compliments. See it on the nails here.
Clarins Rouge Prodige Lipstick in 118 Clementine
I personally can wear this shade only in summer when I get some tan, as it’s not the best choice for my light cool toned skin but with some tan, it’s amazing. Keep the rest of the makeup minimum and add Clementine for a
NARS Summer 2013 is all about the bright and vibrant colours. Just take a look at the sunny promo! Yellow and purple look like a cool combo, actually.
The products are:

Duo Eye Shadow
- Fashion Rebel: Dandelion, African Violet
Shimmer Eye Shadow

Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner

For the lips there are two pink products and one
I wrote about one nail polish collection that I wanted to get several months ago. I am sure that my friend Charlotte knows what I am talking about. And guess what? I could not find it!!! I contacted the brand several times via e-mail and twitter and got no answer. By the way, I was not the only one who did and we all got the same results. I don’t understand what’s the problem here.
But well, it’s not the only nail polish brand and I can always get what I want from the other one, you know. So this is what I did! I’ve picked 2 shades that I wanted from Inglot : lime green 318 and cream coral 949 . The brand has TONES of beautiful shades and I am so getting more of them!
Check out the swatch of the Coral Shade 949
