NOTD: Summer's Almost Over

Summer's almost over, but I won't let it end without showing you my nails with the most summerific color I can think of.


Fun, bright, in-your-face orange! A color that definitely stands out. If this color isn't summerific enough for you, then I don't know what is.


These were my nails a few weeks back. Had them done at my current favorite nail salon - Nailandia Spa!

I never liked the color orange. Especially on my nails. I rarely sport orange nails because I believe the color makes my hands look darker. But when I was choosing which shade to go for when I was getting my nails done, this neon orange really caught my eye. I decided to be more 'adventurous' this time and give orange another chance. Besides, it's summer, and this color's perfect for the season.


I didn't expect to like the results as much as I did. This particular shade seemed to be alright for my skin tone. Still not the best, I believe, but I had nothing to complain about.


Ok, fine. So not all oranges look bad on my nails. 


What's the most summerific color your nails have been painted with? Share by commenting below, ok? :)

  3. I love this color! <3 I've always been a fan of orange shades, in bags, tops, pants, etc. But I haven't had my nails painted orange. Will do super soon though before summer ends :) Anyway, I think my most summerific nail color's a pastel yellow, ala lemon XD

  5. Hmmm, the only orange from those brands that I know of is Sun Kissed from Caronia's Sweet Bliss collection. Not as bright as this one, though :) http://www.codenameaya.com/2011/05/caronia-sweet-bliss-collection.html

  7. Reminds me of orange jelly! :D


    Yeah, I noticed that too. This one was so bright, it made my skin look paler/fairer in the background, if that even makes sense. Haha
