Orange Fail

I've always hated the color orange for some reason.  So much so that I would buy a pack of highlighters and toss the orange one out as soon as I opened them.  But I do love me a good orange nail polish! I was swatching all of my orange polishes and thought it would be a good change to wear orange before summer is over here (which will be a few more months - UGH!)

I picked out Milani Neon Awesome Orange and went about my business. FOUR coats later, I still had VNL (visible nail line) which I hate. But it's a very pretty orange though!

Okay, FINE!  I'll just layer a coat of Essie Clambake over it and be done with it.  It's a pretty deep reddish orange.  It'll work.

Not so much.  After TWO coats of that on top of the FOUR coats of the Milani, I still had VNL.

So I took it all off and put on a khaki color. Essie Case Study.

Geesh. Next time I'll lay down a base coat of white or something first.
