5 Orange Nail Polishes to Try for Summer

Looking for some brights for your nails? Here are some of my favorite more orange-hued shades for summer! I can’t wait to hear what your favorites are!

  1. Illamasqua Marquise — a textured, gold-shimmered orange
  2. Zoya Amy — a fiery orange
  3. Zoya Arizona — a yellow-orange cream
  4. Guerlain Nahema — medium-dark, orange-red
  5. Essie Sunday Funday — a muted, orange-coral

Guerlain Sun Celebration Terracotta Bronzing Powder & Blush

Guerlain Sun Celebration Terracotta Bronzing Powder & Blush ($76.00 for 0.56 oz.) consists of three distinct shades with a gold overspray (which I removed by brushing it away before swatching/applying). There is a pinky-coral, tangerine, and brown. It’s most practically used in halves, so taking the bronzer and either adding the orange blush or the pink-coral blush to it, but the size of each quadrant isn’t quite big enough for an average-sized blush brush. If you have a smaller blush or highlighter brush, you could feasibly use each shade individually.

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder Brush (2014) Review & Photos

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder Brush (2014) ($42.00) is a short-handled, red-bristled brush designed to be used with Guerlain’s Terracotta Bronzing Powders. The brush head is 1.5 inches / 3.5 centimeters in length, 1.5 inches / 3.5 centimeters in width, and 1.5 inches / 3.5 centimeters in thickness. It had a total length of just over 4 inches / 10.5 centimeters with an open ferrule. The bristles are scratchy, and the brush, overall, is poorly cut–it’s just not even at all. I had shedding for the first four washes, but after that, it did seem to abate. I noticed some dye bled for the first three washes as well. At this price point, there are too many higher-quality options to consider this one (and there are more affordable options that are better, too).

Guerlain Gladys (78), Galiane (15), Gaetane (16) Rouge G Lipsticks

Guerlain Gladys (78) Rouge G Lipstick ($51.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “vibrant fuchsia.” It’s a rich, medium-dark fuchsia-shimmered berry with cool undertones and a luminous sheen. The color payoff was incredibly intense and opaque–one pass is all you need–and the coverage was even and made lips look smoother. This shade wore well for six hours, and it left a noticeable stain behind, while still being hydrating and comfortable to wear. This is a new and permanent shade. Guerlain Rose Grenat (864) (LE, $51.00) is lighter, brighter, less shimmery. YSL Exquisite Plum (22) (P, $34.00) is darker. YSL Forbidden Burgundy (12) (P, $34.00) is darker. MAC Commotion (LE, $20.00) is sheerer, more muted. Urban Decay Venom (P, $22.00) is darker. Guerlain Gigi (P, $51.00) is less shimmery, brighter. Guerlain Champs-Elysees (P, $35.00) is brighter, more fuchsia. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
