The Orange Manicure - Nailed It.


Who remembers The Style Edit I typed up about my current love for all things orange? Well, the same colour scheme has worked its way onto my finger tips and I've been gravitating towards all the orange bottles in the isles of boots and now have a few in my stash. I've narrowed it down to my 2 most loved nail offerings that just bring it when it comes to popping a bit of colour and owning that high shine glossy finish. These 2 may look the same on the image, but they each offer a different shade.

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine// This little pot in 'Passion Fruit' is a much loved shade that is a great transitional shade from winter to spring. The Gelly range by Barry M is awesome when it comes to staying power and after a few coats it genuinely looks like you've nipped to the salon and got your shellac owwn. The shade is a lovely deep orange with a slight hint of red and as I'm not a brave enough red nail wearer this is the perfect meet in the middle colour for me. I'm also going to just point out that even my boyfriend commented on this particular colour when I had layered it on for a date night so that must mean its a winner - right?

Maybelline Super Stay Gel Nail Colour// I can't even explain how big my heart eyes are for this shade. I have been on the hunt for a pink nail varnish - which I'm well aware this is not - but after deciding that pink is not a 'me' colour I came across the shade 'Hot Salsa' on the Maybelline counter and I had to make it mine. Once applied unlike the Barry M which has more of a red undertone, this shade holds more of a pink undertone - making it the perfect orange/pink hybrid. Chips? There are none. I wore this on my tips for almost a week without a scratch or chip and at around £4 a bottle I was bloody surprised at the awesomeness. I haven't checked out the rest of the shades in the line yet, but don't you think that I'm not all. over. it.

Are you all about the orange mani too?
