An Unusual Orange

Orange is a color I mostly fear. It never looks quite right on me. Michelle on All Lacquered Up suggested around New Year's to try a color you've shied away from. So, I have bought some oranges and they look very nice, but I can never stand to have them on for longer than a day.

Color Club - Tangerine Scream

This, however, is different. It's a COOL orange, which seems impossible. I tilted the bottle so you can see the cool shimmer of it. Yet, it's also a neon, so it's a white hot orange. Like when water is so hot it feels cold.

It is so pretty and unique!

Last night I put it on as a pedicure. (It's no longer on my nails) I'll have a pic of that someday if the sun comes out again. We have had the crappiest, overcast, rainy weather for about three weeks now!

If you have a color you bought and are reluctant to try it, or if you have something you think doesn't look quite right, I encourage you to try it again!

You never know, it could become a favorite. I never would have thought an orange polish would be in my top 20!


  1. I love this color. I want the whole collection of these, but I only have like 3 or 4 of them.

  2. I just bought another three of them today!!! I got the pink because usually I can't wear pink, but I think this one will work. I also got the purple and the green. I just love that cold shimmer.

  3. That is such a nice collection. I think somehow you can get a polish to work. Use it on your toes especially if you love it and it doesn't look really good with your skin tone. This shade looks really pretty on you. Can't wait to see the other colors.

  4. That's a good idea. Sometimes it's easier to live with on the toes.
