This is another one I had worked on for the challenge that I am not doing anymore. I wanted something bright and fun to contrast the gloomy, wintery weather we are having recently. I really do love the colder weather but I do love the summer polish shades and trends.
I started off with two coats of Essence – Redvolution over basecoat.
At first I wasn’t sure if I liked this colour. I wore this for a day and a half on it’s own because I just wasn’t sure. It is a bright orange toned red. After a few hours though I really started to like it. By the following day I liked it a lot. I decided to go ahead with my original idea.
I bought this Sinful Colors polish for Ackermans which means it doesn’t come with a name. Lucky me. As far as I can tell it is Sinful Colors – Summer Peach. It is a really bright orange. Really bright. This is Summer Peach on it’s own:
In the photos it doesn’t look nearly as bright as it did in real life. This was super bright and summery. I can see on the photos that it doesn’t look as neatly blended as it did in real life either. I really liked the look of this though. I also got quite a few compliments while I was out shopping.
I topped it off with the new Tip Top topcoat I received from them recently. I am really impressed with this topcoat (and the basecoat). It actually dries quite fast, especially as it isn’t a fast drying topcoat. It also leaves my nails super shiny like glass. I will do a post about these some other time but so far I am really impressed.
What do you think of the colour combination? Do you also think it looks quite summery? I am by no means rushing summer to come back in a hurry but I do love the bright colours every now and then.
Thanks for reading!
