I will say that this polish definitely photographs darker than it appears in real life. IRL it's the color of the outside of an orange. You know, like the fruit. In most of the swatches I've seen, and in my own photos, it looks a couple shades darker than that. But other than that, this color doesn't need much description. It's orange and it's a creme. It's bright and juicy, and pretty perfect for livening up your day. The formula was good, but a little thick. The brush on the mini bottle was really small, so that might have affected things. I needed two coats, and I was almost afraid it wouldn't self-level, but with topcoat it turned out to be fine.
This polish is a few years old by now, but I know that it was created with model Lara Stone, who is Dutch. You know what Dutch people love? Orange. I read this little blurb about why here, but I can't really claim that that's a reliable resource. So here's another one. I do love it when nail polish is educational, don't you?
Orange was a nice pick-me-up for me because the weather has been like this:
I took this yesterday, on the day that Ben flew off to Vegas, where I assume it is sunny and at least mostly warm. And here it was -6 with windchill. I'm looking forward to Saturday when it'll be almost 40, yay!! Winter really needs to just stop. Normally I actually enjoy winter, but this one has almost been enough to convince me to move south. Walking from my door to my car yesterday morning in my workout capris (it was sunny out, so I didn't realize it was THIS COLD) was torturous, and that's only a distance of like fifty feet. Once the wind hit my bare calves I was like, NO PLEASE NO ANYTHING BUT THIS. Won't make that mistake again. Spring cannot come soon enough.
Okay, that's all for me today. Sorry it was a quiet week. I wanted to see how long Essie Truth or Flare would wear without chipping; turns out it was a solid four days! But that left me wearing the same polish for most of the week. But anyway, since I was basically an orange virgin before this (true orange, anyway), what's your favorite orange polish?
