Orange Peel

Zoya Arizona and Zoya Shelby

This isn't necessarily a total fail, but it definitely didn't end up with the cool artsy vibe I was going for.  Instead it looks pretty blah - BUT I still love these two colors together and definitely want to do something else with them.

It's strange; my entire life, I have REALLY disliked orange.  Orange was pretty much the worst of all colors, and I wore it only for Halloween and Orioles games.

Oddly, though, in the last four or five months I've become a bit of a fan of orange.  I can't even believe I am saying this, but I actually like orange!  Now not all oranges make the cut, but Zoya Arizona is the perfect bright orange with a spot-on name.  I'm not ready to commit to reddish oranges just yet, but these fun, bright yellowy oranges are actually pretty great.  And when paired with pink, my favorite of all colors, orange looks even better.  In fact, I've found myself gravitating towards my orange polishes lately.  I am just so surprised!  I guess tastes change, right?  I actually even found a wine I liked recently, and I dislike wine more than I used to dislike orange (it is called New Age, by the way, and it truly is excellent!).  

Anyone else with strong feelings about orange?  I feel like many bloggers are the most divided on pink - we either love it or hate it (and well, I just adore all shades of pink!).

Thanks for stopping by!
