Orange Spring Tips

Hello, ladies. Summer is getting closer and the weather is getting hotter. Today I went with a bright orange tipped manicure. I think it's a fun play on the classic french that is perfect for Spring.

I started off with 2 coats of Essie Allure as my base color. For my tips I chose Zoya Arizona. Arizona is a fantastic sherbert orange cream.

To get that curved shape I used reinforcement stickers which I peeled off while the polish was still wet. If you wait until your polish has started to dry, the polish may peel off on the edge with the sticker.

The sun really brought out the milkyness of Allure, but indoors and in the shade it just has more of a great shine to it like the top picture.

I hope you all have a great rest of your day and thanks for popping in!


  1. Looks great!! I haven't been able to see Arizona the same since Scrangie compared it to nacho cheese, but I love what you've done with it here. It looks very fresh and summery over Allure.

    1. haha, nacho cheese?! If I didn't already love this color I would probably feel a bit turned off from it now, lol. Ohh, Scrangie. Did you see her April Fool's post?

    2. I did! That's just it! Ranch dressing and barbecue sauce, too... lol. She totally had me going, too.
