Celeb Inspired Orange Nails - China Glaze Papaya Punch.

Sunday 28 August 2011

Celebs have been rocking orange nails in their droves this summer, and Solange Knowles seems to permanently have the juicy colour on her nails in some shade or another, but my fave is still the tangerine shade in these pics from a Range Rover party in May. Her nails accentuated her gorgeous skin and popped off her stunning white dress and gold jewelz, what an amazing colour choice.

Anyhoo, I've finally found a similar shade (a lot of orange polish out there is spicy hot or super bright neon as opposed to a warm, yellow orange) but China Glaze Papaya Punch, from the Island Escape collection is perfect!

I LOVE this polish, China Glaze has been a fave brand for a while but this shade goes on like a dream. This is 2 coats and no top coat but see how dense and shiny it is? I've had so many compliments whilst wearing it over the last week or so, the future is definitely Papaya Punch orange!

If you haven't tried China Glaze before, you need to - the colour choice and quality is amazing and it's really affordable at £6.49 a bottle, take a peek HERE! As a recommendation, if you're a fan of crackle/shatter polish then CG's Crushed Candy baby blue is a must have. I love all of their crackle colours but the baby blue is really unique. What's your favourite?

J - Kind of obsessed with nails right now!
