Orange Julius

I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for summer! I’ve started making some bright, fun colors to get into the summer vibe.

I used Sally Hansen Insta Dri Whirlwind White (any white creme will do), Tangerine pigment from TKB Trading, and Hot Topic Neon Orange.


I added 1 tablespoon of Tangerine pigment into 3/4 of white. To give this polish a little extra spunk, I added in about 12 drops of neon orange.


A perfect summery orange! Now I am craving warm weather AND an orange julius!


Pastels are fun & easy to make, so if there’s a certain color you’d like to see…give me a shout!

  3. That’s a really cute color!

    I’d love to see how that matte Nailtek-stuff would look as a holopolish, I like greens *hint hint*

  5. mmmm…this makes me think of an orange dreamscicle! YUMMMY!

  12. Hi

    I were just wondering what kind of powder pigment you use? Can they be bought online?

  13. Thank you all!
    I use cosmetic grade pigments. Coastal Scents and TKB Trading are two brands I really like…they both have online stores šŸ™‚

  14. Oooh ooh, make a dupe/sister for MAC newest sellout Peppermint Patti :D!

  15. Oh, I really enjoy your creations – and I’m not even a nailphile! I would love to see grayed pastel blue, shifting to periwinkle rather than to green.

    Would it be possible to create some vibrant duochromes, like Nubar’s Peacock Feathers or Indigo Illusion?

  16. Hi!
    I just wanted to tell you that I love your blog and that you’re a GREAT source of inspiration. I’ve written about you on my blog. Feel free to check it out! šŸ™‚
