Orangey nails

So I have been feeling the love for orange at the moment. Orange lipstick, orange dresses, but mostly orange nails. For a girl who usually wears black, this is pretty big.

I have 2 shades of orange (/coral) nail polish in my collection at the moment.

One is my VERY orangey orange (orange is such a weird word when you say it over and over, isn't it?) polish called 'Tangerine Dream' by Rimmel.

As you can see, it is really rather orange- and this is after only one coat. It lasts pretty well- most nail polishes, even OPI and higher end brands, seem to last about 3/4 days on me. If anyone knows how to make it last longer, let me know!

I've been using a clear nail polish as a base (rather than a specified 'base coat') as I want to avoid nasty nail stainage- it seems to be working at the moment.


The second shade is 'Coral Romance' again by Rimmel. This colour has red undertones, and I think I prefer this one. I would love a pair of shoes in this shade. Or a skirt.

Anyway, back to the nail polish. I put two coats on this time to achieve this finish. It has lasted pretty well so far and it makes me feel all happy and summery when I look down at my nails. Can't ask for more than that.

Now I'm off to watch Waterloo Road :) xx

PS Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last post. You (along with my nails) make me smile.
