31 Day Challenge, Day 2: Orange

Good morning! I'm very excited to show you my orange manicure for the second challenge day! I tried out a "bubble" dotting manicure for the first time and really liked the outcome!

I used 2 coats of L'oreal L'orange as a base and then dotted on Essie Yogaga with a large dotting tool and then L'orange again with a smaller tool!

L'orange is a semi-sheer orange creme. I thought this polish actually applied pretty well! I didn't have the best experience with my other L'oreal polish, so I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I think Yogaga is a nice neutral to go with such a vibrant color! I want to retry this mani with blues to make it look more like water!

What do you think of this orange mani?
