Fall Orange: OPI In My Back Pocket

Hi there polish friends, welcome to Monday.  I hope you all had a great weekend.  I had a good one myself.  Saturday was really busy.  In the morning the hubby and I ran errands and did grocery shopping and then after lunch we were with our friends the rest of the day.  We played Mario Kart on their Wii U, went out to dinner, and then came back and watched Guardians of the Galaxy.  Yesterday was supposed to be spent swatching in the afternoon but somehow it turned into nap time with a kitty and then wrapping Christmas presents...oops.

It feels a little strange writing this post after the morning I've had, but it is still technically Fall.  First, the wind chill is 1 degree, second, I had to clear the snow off my car this morning, and third, I am not exaggerating when I say that it took me a full fifteen minutes to get the door to my car open because it was frozen shut.  Yea, so here's a nice Fall orange...

I wanted to show OPI's In My Back Pocket because Thanksgiving and November still are Fall to me.  This type of weather we are having right now is typically January weather.  I wore this around Halloween and right when all the leaves were falling and it seemed like the perfect orange.  Not too bright but not too deep.  I always struggle finding that perfect balance with orange.

The formula isn't amazing with this one but it's workable.  I found that the best thing was to do three thin coats since the polish tended to be on the thin side.  For my swatches I used three thin coats with topcoat.

What's your favorite orange polish?  Do you have one you specifically like for Fall?  Thanks for reading and I hope everyone is keeping warm if you're in a "polar vortex" area like myself.  P.S. why are we naming these things now?  ;)


  1. This polish is gorgeous, I'll surely check it out as soon as possibile. I own many Kiko orange polishes, I love every one of them.

  2. What a fun orange shade that is. I really like it. I don't own a lot of orange colors myself but my favorite in my collection is Jessica Tangerine Dreamz.

  3. Beautiful orange and it looks great on you. I have trouble picking out orange polish. I am never sure how it will look on me.
