It All About Orange - My Bag Of The Moment And A Beautiful Nail Colour From Avon

If you were to ask me what my favourite colour is at the moment, I would have no hesitation in saying orange. I know it's not always the easiest colour to wear from head to foot, but I'm loving just little touches of it at the moment, not only in my clothes, but also in my jewellery and in my accessories. I own quite a bit of orange but probably my favourite orange piece at the moment is this bright orange patent bag.

Orange unfortunately isn't the easiest colour to capture on camera, but this bag is a super bright almost neon orange. Alas it was a Christmas present that my mum got me from a local independent boutique but look on any high street and I'm sure you'll find something similar. A little touch of orange really gives an outfit a summery look.

If you not brave enough to go down the clothing or accessories root then why not try an orange nail polish. I have a few in my collection, ranging from almost coral oranges to bright neon's, and one of my favourites at the moment is this newish addition from Avon.

I've probably taken around 50 pictures of this polish and this manicure and I still don't think I've got it right, it was that hard to capture, but hopefully it gives you some idea of what a summery colour this is.

Avon Nailwear Pro + in Mandarin Magic is a hot, hot, bright, rich orange (certainly brighter than it's showing here), shot through with a load of gold sparkle. I am a huge fan of the Nailwear Pro range and this polish was no different. The super wide brush makes painting a doddle and whilst the formula was slightly thicker than normal it did the job. You do need a couple of coats for full coverage but it dries pretty quick so that wasn't a great problem.

Like all orange and yellow toned colours I'd recommend you use a good based coat to prevent staining but again this shade is worth the extra effort. The orange tone shot through with the gold gives it a real summery feel, and I can imagine it would look great against tanned skin. Are you orange fan be it in nail polish or fashion accessories?
