Polish Comparisons - Oranges

Okay, here is another in my series of polish comparisons, this time we are covering the oranges.......

China Glaze Peachy Keen, OPI In my Back Pocket
and OPI Chop-sticking to my Story

Rimmel Pro Orange Bliss, Barry M Orange
and China Glaze Orange Marmalade

All polishes were pictured with two coats, all applied very well indeed and gave a great finish.

China Glaze Peachy Keen - a very opaque creme in a light to mid peach shade. Opaque in two coats.

OPI In my Back Pocket - a mid orange creme, not too bright, slightly muted in tone. Very pretty and opaque in two coats.

OPI Chop-sticking to my Story - a rich burnt, darker orange creme, Very opaque, two coats used here.

China Glaze Orange Marmalade - a slightly more sheer polish in a rich bright mid orange, filled with glass type flecks. Very pretty indeed and great coverage in two coats, three may be better if you prefer completely opaque.

Barry M Orange - a standard bright orange creme. Opaque in two coats

Rimmel Pro Orange Bliss - a more deep peachy orange creme. Opaque in two coats.

All very pretty. My personal favourites are China Glaze Orange Marmalade, as it is so pretty with the glass flecks.......and OPI Chop-sticking to my Story, as it is just so opaque and a lovely shade of burnt orange, when you want to be more subtle and not so in your face.

I'm not an orange fan, but I will show the love for Peachy Keen! It's such a sweet orange shade. It's delicious and playful.
It's the only orange polish I own!

Liene said...

I already follow you :) I'll looking forward to see more comparisons. ;)

Thank you so much for the kind comment. I think I'm going to have to buy some konad nail paints because I can only get a very thick black and the stargazer chrome to print!:-( xxx

@Sarah: Peachy Keen is a good one, a nice gentle colour :o)

@Liene: great! thank you for being a follower

@lauren:Konad polishes are very good, I highly recommend the white and black, but they all work great (except for silver and gold). Try experimenting on old mani's before you remove them, gives you a chance to have fun and try different polishes. Most opaque polishes will work. Fauxnad plates tend not to be etched as deeply too, so that may be a factor. Konad polishes dry slower so they give you more time to stamp. If you have any questions or need any help/advice, just email me okay, (link in sidebar) I am always happy to help :o)
I also have a link in the categories list for Konad polish swatches over various colour bases, may help you decide what colours to order :o)
