#31DC2014 ~ Day 02 Orange Nails

Orange is one of those colors that I do not wear often on my nails. Yet, when I went through my stash looking for appropriate colors for today's prompt, I was surprised by how many orange nail polishes I actually own. I have quite a few neon oranges which I love for summer, especially on my toes. But for today's manicure I went with something more toned down.

China Glaze Orange Marmelade Orange You Hot

As a base, I put down two coats of China Glaze - Peachy Keen. With my skin tone, this shade is really hard to pull off on its own, so I needed something to accompany this peach shade. Using saran wrap I applied a thin layer of China Glaze - Orange Marmelade and one layer of China Glaze - Orange You Hot. I finished the saran wrap design off with a layer of Misslyn 60 Seconds top coat. To spice things up even more, I added a neon orange stud to each nail.

Again, this is a rather simple design and easy to create. But since I want to practice my nail art skills without getting frustrated at the very beginning of the challenge, I decided to start out with fool-proof things. Still easy designs can look very pretty and I like how this came out.


  1. True, the saran wrap did add some texture - mainly because I was too impatient to wait for my base to completely dry ;D

  2. Jaja, orange ist so eine der Farben die schwierig zu tragen sein können. Ich finde, gelb und orange sieht zu gebräunter Haut besser aus als an meinem käsigen Hautton. Und ich bin mal auf deine blauen Nägel gespannt!

  3. Gorgeous! Love the texture added with the saran wrap!
