Shock {Nails to the Yeah}

ShockOK, y’all, I may need you to save me from myself! Seriously, look at those traffic cone orange nails. I know I said that I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and try new shades but, dang, this is like running past the caution tape and falling off the cliff. I’ma have to reign it in…

The color is called “Shock” by L.A. Colors and it is quite the shock. Every time I looked at my hands I was startled.

As much as I hate the color. And, yes, I hate the color, the nail polish itself is probably one of the best polishes I’ve used in forever. It took three coats of polish to get that shocking shade of orange but the manicure lasted forever. OK, well it lasted a full week (that’s as long as I could take the color without going blind).

Nails to the YeahHave you ever worn a bright shade? How did you adjust to it?

I’m linking up with Sheena at Sophistishe for Nails to the Yeah. She’s also running a contest at her blog, so head on over there and check it out.
