Nails // Blood Orange

Last time I had my nails done, I was annoyed that I had to resort to coral pink rather than the bright orange I had in mind. This time, I made a beeline for the colour I'd spotted before- OPI's Can't Afjörd Not To^. I was envisioning bright, summery nails for the warmer days and, while in daylight that's exactly what I have, inside it's more of a blood orange/ red-coral shade. I waited 3 weeks for this. What a let down!

Never mind, my mum has had her nails painted the brightest shade of highlighter pink known to man and I am going to get that exact shade next time. You better be prepared for it. It is bright! 


  1. It sucks when they don't come out right!! I do think a super bright orange is hard to find, maybe check out the Model's Own polish-for-tans next time you DIY? I do think this shade is gorgeous though, and the neon pink sounds right up my street.

  2. Ooo I like these! I miss having my nails done so much. I want some pointy talons! xx

  3. Omg...I love this color! Not so much orange, in Florida, the footballs team is blue and orange! &lord knows, we get enough of that! But this color is fab!

  4. Oooo loving this nail color, gorgeous!

  5. I love this colour - but I know what you mean, it's a let down when it's not what you wanted

  6. I've been looking for an orange shade but can't find anything that is bright enough so I feel your pain! This is a lovely shade though, it looks really nice :-) And you have such lovely nails (they put mine to shame)!

  7. Ah I'm always about bright nails and love this colour!

  8. This colour is beautiful - so appropriate from Summer! Your nails are such a nice shape - tell me your secrets! They look so glossy and shiny! x

    1. My secret? They're acrylic and I get them done at a salon! I am HOPELESS with nails!

  9. SO pretty! I definitely understand those kind of nail polish let downs, though! // US Lifestyle Blog

  10. You have the most perfect nails, the shape and length. I AM SO JEALOUS. Love the colour too.
