Nail Challenge Day 2: Orange Nails

I have to admit I was a bit stumped for a while trying to figure out what to do for orange nails. My favorite orange polish at the moment is a burnt orange from Orly's Fired Up collection called Flicker. So I started off with two coats of Flicker but the other orange polishes were not to be left out so I decided on doing some watercoloured nails using orange colours. This is the final result!

So just to remind you on what Flicker looks like, here it is again! It is totally transformed by the use of the water coloured technique.

So all you need now is some acetone, a brush and some other orange coloured polishes. I completed my orange watercoloured nails using Santee Neon Orange, and China Glaze Orange You Hot? (from the Summer Neon Collection). I added just a tiny bit of white (China Glaze White on White) to create a bit of contrast between the oranges.

Stay tuned for Day three: Yellow Nails and be sure to stop by Jayne's blog Cosmetic Proof and Traci's blog DrinkCitra to see what gorgeous designs they also created for this challenge! 

Happy Orange Nails!

  4. This is wonderful! I recently purchased Santee neon Orange and I love it. Seeing this now makes me see how it can be wearable outside of applying it solid.

    1. Oh yes you can tone it down using the watercolor technique

  5. Your nails look like they are glowing! I was stumped for Orange too, but I'll have something up soon!

  6. I have that Orly polish and at first I hated but I eventually grew to liking it. But I really love how you made it look with the orange.

  7. Makes me think of the setting sun or the glow from inside some sort of expensive gem stone..this look rocks!

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass.
