A Dirty Little Orange Number

How in the world did this month get over with in a snap? I’m drawing tonight for my October giveaway. Olly Olly In Free!!  Right here.

A top color for Fall is orange. And orange can be a tricky color to wear; clothing, makeup or otherwise.

This orange by Ulta isn’t one of those oranges that worked for me…

I like that it is shimmery and, almost a shimmery frost.

This little baby was part of a collection that I didn’t keep track of.

I have on 3 coats and no top coat. I wasn’t going to spend any time keeping this polish on. I felt the polish made my nails look dirty.

Now that I look at the photos, it doesn’t appear that it was THAT horrible. But in real life, it did not suit me.

One point that is a saving grace for this polish is that it comes in a tiny bottle so I don’t feel I spent a lot of money on a ho-hum shade. Another is that it did apply somewhat nicely. It is soupy but it was very good at leveling out on the third coat.

I wish I would have thought about this before I took it off but, a black shatter would have given it more hope. If you want to see a similar look of that, my friend, Lisa of Shades of Magick, did, click here and check out her work.

When I lamented that orange polishes make my fingers look dirty, I got a few responses back on Twitter that other polish fanatics have that issue too. Some with oranges and a few with pinks.

Is there a shade that you feel makes your nails/fingers look dirty?
