Wheels E8 and F8: Yellow and Orange Cremes

Halloween week seems like a perfect time to share orange cremes, so that's what I've got for this Nail Wheel Wednesdsay, along with some yellows, because at the point I painted that wheel, I didn't have 20 untried yellow cremes so filled out the wheel with oranges and ochres.

(all three coats except as noted)

1. Finger Paints Lemon Sour
2. Ulta Cream of the Crop
3. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Buttercup
4. Revlon Nail Art Neon Neon Light [white base that came with it taken off and stored with the white cremes; love the satin finish from the neon pigments]
5. Studio M Neon Caution [not so neon as all that]
6. CND Bicycle Yellow
7. Cult Nails Feel Me Up
8. Studio M Psychedelic Scene [more yummy satin finish]
9. Nails Inc. Westbourne Grove [ditto]
10. Essie Action [also ditto]
11. Essence Marble Mania Peaches
12. Zoya Arizona
13. Sinful Clementine
14. Essie Fear or Desire (2 coats)
15. Jessica Only in Venice (2)
16. Orly Glowstick
17. Wet 'n' Wild Pin 'em Slater
18. China Glaze Kalahari Kiss (2) [I learned in junior high art class that adding black to yellow makes ochre, so that's how these last three got on this wheel]
19. L'Oreal The Perfect Trench (2)
20. Nails Inc. Hampstead Gardens (2)

Bottles 1 through 6:

7 through 11:

12 through 15:

16 through 20:

The first half of this next wheel is a festival of dupes. Good gracious, I need to weed these out at some point.

1. OPI Y'all Come Back Ya Hear (3 coats)
2. Zoya Coraline (3)
3. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Fired Up
4. Sally Hansen Insta Dri Orange Impulse

6. L'Oreal Boozy Brunch
7. Sally Hansen Insta Dri Heat Flash
8. Ulta Professional Bing
9. SinfulColors Citrine
10. Sephora Pantone Universe Tangerine Tango
11. Sephora Pantone Universe Tangerine Tango Matte [it's a nice matte, to be sure; I wish they'd just included a matte topper in the set, though]
12. Nails Inc. Portobello (3)

  1. Oranges don't go well with my skin tone, but yellows often do! The Orly (nr 16) and Wet'n'wild are my picks, they are bright and neon. The Revlon, nr 4 looks lovely too.

  2. My favs are the 16 & 17 from the yellows. I like those bright colours :-) 17, 18 & 19 from the oranges look funky too :-)

  3. YAY - the 3 first pastel yellows can move into my stash any day <3
    You have a lot of gorgeous oranges :)
