Nail Art // Bright Orange on Orange Stamping


I have a bright and bold look to share with you today that is way out of my comfort zone! Orange and purple... Who would've thought?! But they really do work well together, and I'm glad I tried it!


I started with a base of Essie Taj-Ma-Haul (originally swatched here) and then added some stamping with a slightly brighter shade (Mundo de Unas Sunflower) and a Born Pretty Store plate. I couldn't find the plate when I came to write this post up so I can't tell you which one it was, unfortunately. :(

To finish it all off I added some neon purple studs to each nail, also from Born Pretty Store. I really think the splash of purple makes the mani!


Being more adventurous with my colour combo choices wasn't nearly as difficult as I had convinced myself it would be. And I was super pleased with what I ended up with ultimately! So I think the positive result will really push me to keep trying new things and new colours in the future... And I know I know, you're probably thinking "Katherine, it's really not this serious or this difficult" but shhh! It is for me! Haha.

So what do you think of purple and orange? Is it a colour combo you'd wear? Do you have colours I should try together next? Let me know! 

Thanks for visiting! xx

  4. I love trying new combinations and sometimes I think it all depends on what type of nail art are you do too. You should check out When Colors Collide on FB for color combo challenges.
