Year of the Tangerine

L'Oreal Colour Riche Nail Polish in Tangerine Crush
The color experts over at Pantone have already declared that the color of the year for 2012 is Tangerine Tango, and I for one am embracing it whole heartedly! Lately I have been on the hunt for tangerine accessories, tangerine jeans, tangerine lipstick, tangerine....well, you get the idea. So, I was ecstatic when I saw this polish in my local Ulta yesterday--and even more excited once I saw the results on my nails. 

This is my first colour riche polish and so far, I am quite impressed. The color is slightly lighter and less neon than it appears in the photograph. I would describe it (quite inarticulately, I must say) as a pinky-coral-tangerine with a gorgeous creme finish. It was a bit streaky with just one application, but with a second coat and a top coat (I used Seche Vite), the finish was gorgeous and perfect for spring. And so far it has resisted chipping, which is an epic feat on my nails. 

I'm glad I picked up this beautiful shade and am planning on picking up more from the L'Oreal Colour Riche range. Color me impressed!
