Light Orange Comparison Swatches

Orly Crush on You (2 coats) is my favorite here only because the application was so much easier in Comparison with OPI Osaka-to-me Orange (4 coats) and OPI Tangerine Scene (3 coats). Both OPIs gave me horrendous cuticle drag but with Osaka-to-me Orange, the amount of drag was almost irreparable. Color-wise Tangerine Scene is the standout. I consider L.A. Girl Flare Glowing to be a very light orange, but I decided to exclude it from this comparison in favor of comparing it to yellows sometime in the future.

Now that you guys have seen my orange stash, what are your favorite oranges? Do some of you still feel like orange is a no-go color despite the recent orange trend?

    I own a few orange polishes but I never end up wearing them for long… (like I literally cant stand them for longer than a couple of hours). It’s not like I’m opposed to nontraditional colors… I buy and wear every blue I can get my hands on.

    but alas, like Polish Addict I’m stuck in a professional environment and have to limit my trendy colors to the weekends….

    It’s definitely hit or miss with nontraditionals – and I definitely feel your pain on the professional environment thing. lol.

    Osaka-to-me orange is actually my fave orange. Did you get one of the new formula OPI’s? Mine is the older one, and it applies like a dream!

    Hello! Looking at these, my previous hate for orange np has ended…Actually, now I am lusting for a rich dark orange creme (not neon!). Which OPI would you recommend me, Tangerine Scene or Brights Power? In the few swatches I’ve found it seemed that Brights Power is darker, but not sure so in case you have it, I’ll listen to your expert opinion!!
    Thank you

    Aw Ana I wish I could give you a better answer but I don’t own Brights Power. : ( I know for sure that some girls on MUA probably own both, I’m posing the question to them and I’ll get back to you with the results. : )
