Colour Me Crazy: Orange!

I have been rubbish at blogging this week. As in - I haven't posted at all! I also wore bare nails to work for FOUR days in a row. I know, I know... I'm ashamed.  
Anyway, this is only week 2 of the British Nail Bloggers' Colour Me Crazy challenge, so I can't give up already! I did these nails a few days ago (they were my one day where I didn't wear bare nails to work) and didn't like them much, so didn't write a post. But then I thought I might as well post them...

The orange is OPI's Juice Bar Hopping, from the new(ish) full size neon range. I didn't use a white base for this, because I like it as it is. This is two coats. Juice Bar Hopping is a fabulous bright, juicy orange, with a slightly sheer finish. It dries to a satiny sheen, so I added topcoat for these photos, which really brings out the oh-so-juicy colour!

I used W7 Black on my accent nail, and added a bunch of rhinestones that were a Christmas present. I love the rhinestone effect, but this is where I became unhappy with the design - I really like Juice Bar Hopping, and I like the accent nail, but I don't like them together. The rhinestones are a lovely colour, but next to Juice Bar Hopping, they look really washed out and pale. I should have paired them with an all-black look, or with something else that was a proper contrast. Oh well! 


  1. The rhinestone nail is reminding me of Honeycomb! I love it :D

    1. THANK YOU! I knew it reminded me of something and I could not work out what!

  2. This looks amazing! I love Juice Bar Hopping! So bright and bold. The rhinestones look fabby! :-)

    I didn't bother with a white base either and I think it looked good on its own! :-)

    1. Thank you! Yes, JBH is gorgeous isn't it? I know plenty of people don't like the visible nail line, but it doesn't bother me, so I didn't waste time on a white base.


I absolutely love comments! But please don't spam me with links to your sales website here!.

If you have a blog that you'd like me to check out, then I'm more than happy to do so - just drop me an email. Thanks!
