Living in an Orange Oasis with Covergirl

I think it is fair to say that I am not a summer loving girl at heart. Sure, I enjoy the odd beach trip and daily dose of sunshine, but I'd much rather a big coat and boots than a melting hot day where my lipstick isn't safe in my handbag. One part of summer I do enjoy is being able to work out outdoors more often, and another is the bright and happy polishes that seem to crop up more often! Orange is my weak spot (seriously, even my coffee machine is orange!) and when the new Covergirl Outlast Glosstini in Orange Oasis* hit my desk I was very excited to jump back into the bright nail game!
This took three thin coats to become opaque, and there were some bald spot issues which were a little bit frustrating. Luckily the perfect orange shade made it worthwhile, and I am pleased to say that this seems to really flatter my fair skin, but I can also envision it rocking darker skin tones as well - orange is a multi-tasker, what can I say!?
After being on a glitter nail kick followed by a deep metallic kick, it feels nice to return to an old favourite in orange. I don't see colours like this on many people, I notice a lot of bright pink or blue this summer, but I urge you to grab a mini bottle of polish and give a scary colour a go - that is the beauty of small sizes, people!
I absolutely loving wearing a jolt of summer on my nails, even though the formula needs a bit of work. What nail colour screams summer to you?!

The Covergirl Outlast Glosstini's come in a range of shades, and are only $4.95 for 3.5ml.

    1. I love nail polish as I tend to wear a lot of black, so it brightens me up nicely. I love glossy finishes too!
