If you've followed me for a while, you know I'm not the biggest fan of orange nail polish at all. But, this layering surprised me. I actually didn't hate it. I mean, I might have told Mr. Sparkle that I had 10 evil pumpkins on my nails last night, but that was just the tired talking. And honestly, I can't really lump an ORANGE this bright and glowy into the pumpkin patch, now can I?

Orange nail polish will never be my favorite. It's not a color I like, and generally, it does nothing for my skin tone but clash, Clash, CLASH. But this layering is by far my favorite orange that I've worn. And I really, really don't like orange.
I remember when Juicy Orange Pop came in May's Rainbow Honey Mystery Bag. I was a little bit intrigued. It was highlighter bright and had flakies. I love flakies! But, because it's orange, it definitely got stashed in the Helmer more quickly than some other polishes. Little did it know, it's chance in the sun was coming a la the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge.
Because Juicy Orange Pop is a sheer, jelly flaky, I knew I would have to layer it over something. Feel The Vibe was an orange I picked up for nail art a little while back. And maybe a little bit of an attempt to get over my whole un-love for orange. Two coats of that would've been great for a base, except for the part where I forgot to wrap my tips. Hence, third coat. Juicy Orange Pop brightened up Feel The Vibe just a bit, it's a pretty decently bright orange on its own. The formula was a little thick. That's not typical of Rainbow Honey's jellies, so I'm not sure if the flakies were responsible? Because of that, I topped everything off with a coat of clear, followed by a coat of Seche Vite.
While I'm not a fan of orange by any means, I could get on board with polishes just like Juicy Orange Pop in other colors. Purple, Aqua, Blue, Teal, Pink, Red, Green... in slightly different shades of a jelly base from what we typically see, with allllllll different flakies in each one. Please?!?!
