An orange

We had some sun today, which doesn’t happen everyday in Saint Petersburg, even in summer. To match the weather I chose an orange nail polish from the Gel Effect line by Lumene.

Lumene Gel Effect 12 Cloudberries

The orange is listed under #12 and it’s called Cloudberries. My favourite berries :) The pics show 2 coats of the Lumene with a fast drying top. The white/orange accent is done with Essie Blanc and water decals.

Next I applied a thin coat of golden and purple glitter Tammy by Shimmer Polish.

Here’s a macro of the glitter on the accent nail:

The glitter partially hid the orange, but this way the fruit doesn’t look all lost and lonely over the white background.

I didn’t do any comparisons of Cloudberries with other oranges in my collection, today I just enjoyed the vibrant color :) However soon I’m going to swatch a pastel apricot nail polish and I’ll try to include Cloudberries in the comparison picture. I think the color will be close to OPI Atomic Orange, we’ll see :)

That’s it for now, till next time xxx

  1. I like very much your accent nail and I have to say, I like the mani better without the glitter on it.

      Thank you Andrea :) The glitter addition was more like a “what if” idea :))
