Orange nails. Right. That proved to be a bit of a challenge as I do not own any orange nail polishes and I have already maxed out my nail polish budget for at couple of months.
Creativity is the key!
I ended up mixing together a red and a yellow colour that I already had in my collection. I put a drop of red and two drops of yellow onto a small piece of tin foil and mixed it together with a paint brush. It tried out different colour combinations, but it the end I found that the mix that looked the most like ‘real’ orange was this. I mixed together L’Oréal Paris – Banana Pop and Rimmel London – Celebrity Bash. Afterwards I put on a layer of Essie – Good to go. as top coat.
Because I painted it on with a regular stiff paint brush, I couldn’t get it to look as smooth as regular nail polish, so I ended up putting a layer of L’Oréal Paris – Top Coat Carat on top to take attention away from the imperfect application and onto the colour.
Here is the result:
Have a nice day – see you next time!
