Post and Video-My Favorite Orange Nail Polishes

Hi everyone and happy Hump Day!  I am very happy to report that I took my migraine medicine for the first time yesterday and it actually worked, yay!  I felt like I had so much time for blogging and youtube after work and that makes me a happy girl :)  Today I am really excited to share with you my favorite orange polishes.  I feel like oranges can be so underrated and often ignored but as more time goes on, the more I love a good orange polish.  Let's get right into it!

The first set of photos are my favorite peachy orange polishes.  I feel like every peach polish I try I end up loving, but I still haven't found that perfect true peach color.

Julep Clara-pale cool peach cream, the formula is a bit difficult and it does need three coats but obviously the color rocks ;)

Maybelline Color Show Bleached in Peach-this one is from the new Bleached Neons collection, which was supposed to be discontinued in May I believe, but I've still seen them in a few places around me.  The color is a neon pastel warm peach.  It is a little bit difficult and needs three coats but I think it's worth it.

Zoya Cole-When I look at this one in the bottle, I think of it as peach, but on the nail it translates to a dusty peach.  Another tough formula, needing three coats.  It's slightly more crelly than a true cream.

Next up are some unique glitters and some medium orange tones.

Deborah Lippman Million Dollar Mermaid-Do I need to even explain?  A shimmery orange and gold glitter in a light orange base.  

NailNation 3000 Wrapped Candy-I included this one because the holo base is slightly orange and it also contained shredded glitters in a rainbow of colors, including orange.

OPI Where Did Suzi's Man-go?-A melon mango cool toned medium orange cream.  I find this color really unique because it's a cool toned orange.

Wet N Wild Sunny Side Up-I included this orange, which is a warmer medium orange cream, because it's the orange I use the most for nail art, hands down.

Zoya Thandie-A deeper cantaloupe orange cream and I love this one because it again has those cooler tones.  A vein of silver shimmer is visible in the bottle but it doesn't translate on the nail.  Perfect formula.

Now we're getting into some rich deeper oranges!

OPI Bright Lights, Big Color-This polish was acquired on a trip to Marco Island, Florida, because I have a tradition of getting a bottle of polish from each place I visit.  This polish is an orange shimmer but it has a really strong pink base.  Great formula.

Zoya Rocha-A vibrant red/orange cream and I picked this one specifically because it doesn't bleed when you clean it up, which is rare for oranges.  The color is bright, vibrant, and juicy, and the formula is great.

OPI A Roll in the Hauge-Another bright red/orange cream but this one is the warmer cousin to Zoya Rocha.

Zoya Amy-Fall in the bottle!  This one is such a gorgeous shimmery orange, but like Bright Lights, Big Color above, it has a really pink base to it.  Great formula.

OPI A Woman's Prague-ative-This polish is a copper orange shimmer that leans much more bronze than Zoya Amy.  

Spellbound Nails Fall 'n Leaves-One of my favorite Fall glitters, this clear glitter topper contains gold, orange, black, and red glitters.

Julep Autumn-Another clear glitter topper, I think this one is really unique because the metallic orange glitters are more melon cool toned and the red glitters are more pinky red.
