Poison Sumac Orange

Well, the name’s a little crazy, but these nails remind me of the orange poison sumac bushes in New England. Luckily these nails won’t make you itch.

Take a medium neutral red and the most opaque bright yellow you can find. At least one of them should be shimmer, preferably the red. Remember, add the lighter color to the darker color. If you want the nails to “glow”, you can add a bit of gold shimmer powder. Adding pearl shimmer to these would take away from the nice warm tone and make the nails look more pink than orange. For the shimmer to really stand out, add a really shiny topcoat. Twice.

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.
