orange, it’s obvious!

Today’s Summer Challenge is

Orange Freestyle Day

I used essie Orange, it’s obvious!, essie luxeffects Shine Of The Times, nail stickers and orange fimo slices for this mani.

These are the slices I originally picked before I had a plan!

Then I found the flower nail stickers and decided to go super literal with this one so I did Orange Nails with Orange Slices and Orange Blossoms!!! LOL!

I know the flower doesn’t look exactly like and actual orange tree blossom, but I figured with everything else going on it would be OK.

I only used Shine of The Times on my ring finger to really accent the orangey fabulousness of those little slices.

You can see there is a tiny piece of fimo that broke off my last slice… sigh. My clear coat was sooo thick I was afraid to dip my tweezers in there to fish it out!

The best part of doing a nail challenge is that you get to try new things that you maybe wouldn’t have otherwise. In my case I am not a fan of orange polish. I see it on other people and think it’s pretty, but it’s just not very flattering to my coloring. For this very reason I probably wouldn’t have ever tried out this mani.

I’m so glad I did because I found out this color actually doesn’t look so bad on me! I probably won’t wear it very often, but it’s back on the list of OK colors! 😉

The next challenge is Favorite Summer Color! Can’t wait!!
