The first orange I've ever loved.

Hi lacquered lovelies. I'm not going to be writing much today as I feel pretty dreadful. I'm not too sure what's going on, but about halfway through the day yesterday I started to feel really sick - clammy, headache, sore throat etc. And my glands are swollen today. Holla giiiiirl, this always happens to me in the last week of classes. Bah!

Today I have the first orange that I've worn on its own and loved. This is Nicole by OPI Fresh Squeezed. I really wanted a summery nail colour and I was rooting through my stash and decided to go for this one. In the bottle, it has a bright pink flash that I could see sometimes on the nail. Sadly, 100 pictures could not capture it.

This was three coats, because it is a bit sheer, no topcoat because... actually, I don't remember why, but the drying time on this wasn't too horrible, so maybe that was why.

In the shade. I love the way it looks here, so so pretty.
And full sunlight. Excuse the weirdness on my ring finger, I did this around 4:30 in the morning when I was pulling an all-nighter. Oooh school.

I love this colour. I've noticed that NOPI seems confused about their new brush - I see it on some colours, including older/core colours, and some new colours don't have it. Weird! I got some of the new colours from the spring collection and only two of them have the new brush, out of the five I got. Weirdness.

Finally, I just want to ask you all to keep Landa in your thoughts. She's got a kiddo in the hospital and I'm sure she'd really appreciate your well wishes. She's one of the sweetest people I've "met" through blogging and I wish her and hers all the best. I guess I'm thinking about this after everything that happened with Ange and her giveaway. I have a lot more that I could say on that but I'm going to stop. I feel so achey that even my hair touching me hurts. What's up with that?!

What do you guys think? Do you like this colour? I've never been big on orange but I'll make an exception for this polish, it screams summer to me and I'm ready for summer. Not because I like warm weather/sunlight (I'm a ghost so I don't really) but because it means classes are ending. This semester has been rough and I'll be glad when it's over.

Thanks for reading, lovelies!


  1. FEEL BETTER! *hugs* <3 lol hopefully you don't have mono like webmd told you ;)
    i love this colour, but really i like a lot of colours, and i could rant forever about stupid ass people that natural selection needs to rid the world of so they stop being mean to ange but i wont. UGH

  2. I need this orange in my life. <3 <3

  3. I don't like it... I love it :)
    Get well soon!

  4. @Elizabeth: LOL stupid WebMD app, I spent far too long putting in symptoms that I've experienced before in a desperate attempt to figure out what's wrong with me. That's the problem with stuff like that, you read it and automatically think OH GOD THAT'S ME I HAVE THROAT CANCER AND LUPUS AND AIDS AND HOW DID I NOT KNOW?! Also, I agree with the Ange thing. People can be so shitty. It really makes me not want to do giveaways at all anymore. <3 <3

    @L(anda): Ooooh it would look AMAZING on you, I must see it! I'm very jealous of your ability to pull all colours off but especially orange! <3

    @Maki: Thanks for the well wishes, I'm hoping that it's just end of semester stress getting to me. I haven't had that for a bit (since first year, really) but I can hope! This is gorgeous, isn't it? I'm glad you like it! Thanks for reading! <3

  5. Aww sweetie pie I hope you get better soon. :( *hugs*

    You know I'm not crazy on orange but this I love.

  6. What a wonderful orange it is! Here's hoping everyone in the blogosphere starts feeling better, there's so much sickness going on ;_;.

  7. I hate orange all the time...but this one is great, you're right! It looks great on you! Feel better!

  8. It's like a creamsicle :)

    Feel better. If you have what I had a couple of months ago it's a doosy.

  12. I like this color a lot, and I hope you feel much better soon!

    Also, I made a franken called Fresh Squeezed and I thought I'd come up with an original name. Guess not. :/

  13. I never thought i'd say this but this tangerine orange color looks spectacular as a nail polish! I guess I should start being adventurous with colors from now on, I'm definitely missing out

    @Melissa: Thank you! I often have issues telling if a polish looks good on me if I like it but I thought this looked okay! Thanks for the well wishes, I appreciate them! Thanks for commenting!

    @lacednotes/Karen: It totally does look like a creamsicle, I was thinking that but somehow forgot to mention it! I hope I don't have what you had, but I hope you're feeling better now! Thanks for commenting!

    @Scandalous/Ange: I'd love to see this on you when you return to blogging! Thanks for commenting, darl, I'm going to email you soon just so I can hear how you're doing, I miss you on twitter! <3

    @Julia Natalia: Ooooh that's horrible! I would love to do a swap with you if you like! I don't have many issues getting a hold of them here! <3

    @Zara: Haha it's hard to come up with original polish names but it does fit, doesn't it? I'm so envious of your franken skills, doll! Thanks for commenting!

    @PolkaDots/Rebecca: I agree! I'd love to see you step out of your comfort zone, I hope you'll share it with us! Thanks for commenting, darl!
