The Color of the Year

Ever since Pantone , announced their Color of the Year, Tangerine Tango, I've been hoarding orange things. Polishes, shoes, blazers.. I'm in love with it. Also, I'm basically the dream consumer, advertising really gets to me, so it's no wonder I'm loving orange haha. I have 2 oranges to show you today, a mainstream polish and an indie:] First up to bat is Essie's Orange, It's Obvious!


So first of all: I hate the name. However, this polish is really really gorgeous, so I'm willing to overlook the awkwardly long and dumb name;] The formula was amazing, almost a one coater but I put 2 coats on to smooth everything out. And it was really self leveling, too. Plus, the color looks great on my skin [not to toot my own horn or anything], AND I wore it for over 3 days. For a creme to hold my attention so long is a feat! Plus, I got no chipping and barely any tipwear!

Now, Alta Costura Vernis' Drama:




I believe this was 2 coats, but I've worn it out with 3 when I just wanted more glitter! Haha. The hearts in this are my absolute favorite part, I love it. And the orange jelly base is squishy and perfect and shiny. I had to search a little for the hearts, but nothing too bad. Plus, the maker of these is such a sweetie. And I have a LOT of ACV polishes, and I really love them all. You'll be seeing them a lot, hopefully in the next month:]

  9. Wow, I've never seen an orange+jelly+glitter indie polish before. Very nice!
    I think I would layer it over the Essie for a stronger base and also to preserve Drama.

    1. I actually don't really know lol! Just that they pick the color of the year every year and sales of things in that color explode... Case in point: every piece of clothing I've bought recently;]
