First Post! NOTD: 2012 The Summer of...Orange?

So after much agonizing I finally picked the topic of my first post! Yaaaaaayyyy!!! Well If you've looked at fashion magazines lately we're seeing lots of color. This is also being reflected in the recent summer collections from Essie, OPI, and Zoya, among others. But what I've noticed in particular is a lot of orange. And I mean lots of it. If someone asked me about my favorite color right now, at this very second, orange would not be the first color to come to mind (it would probably be blue lol). Anyways, if you want to follow this trend there are lots of new polishes to choose from. I love OPI's A Role in The Hauge from their Holland Collection. But if you don't want to run out and buy a new bottle of polish to be "in trend" this season, look within your own stash! So with that I've swatched an old polish as the first post to my new blog :). OPI's Brights Power, which is part of their Summer 2008 Mod About Brights Collection is a great go to polish. However I have to add. Don't let your color agenda be set by what magazines and popular media tell you you should be wearing. If you want to wear black on your nails all summer long go ahead and do it! Set your own color agenda!

OPI's Brights Power is a great orange creme polish. Its a perfect match for those who want a bright orange that isn't neon. Here I did 3 coats for the swatch but this polish is definitely a two coater and goes on evenly.  What colors have you all noticed are trending this summer? What are your favorite ones? Comment and let me know!

Until next post, またね(read: mata ne)!or later ^_^
