I’m still searching for the perfect neon-ish tangerine color.

Sad to say, I still haven’t found the exact color I’m looking for… so I’m still on the hunt. (If you know of any, please let me know where I should look!! Pretty please!)
I started blending some colors since I have so many “oranges” in this color range right now….

…..but ultimately, I decided I’d try again to find the pre-made color, and polished with the pretty Orly color.

Tape! Tape! Tape!

This has to be the most subtle tape manicure…  BUT it was a total success…. again!  Yay!!! *doing a little jig*

Time consuming? yes.

But I have come to a new appreciation of this tape process.  The clean lines that can be achieved are just flickin’ amazing!  Look:

The “real life” color is probably somewhere between the first picture and the last picture.  Sun Worshiper is near neon, and Papaya Punch is pretty deep and muted against it. The color change looks a light reflection as opposed to an actual color change. . .
