All the shades are beautiful and my vote goes to GUERLAIN NAHEMA 🙂 would love to try it out 😀
my orange pick would be CHANEL COROMENDEL 🙂 reddish orange 😀 adoreeeee this shade

i was never a nail polish person and especially high end , but you and my close friend Radhika of weekend ramblings made me crazyyyyy about them last year 🙂
this year i only picked Graphite which was a gift and now i am thinking which one to buy , i need to update my stash

i saw “FIVE WAYS with grey pewter shades ” and read your comments in the post regarding that shade .. and as i was very late in building my collection i had no idea how that color looks like …. headed to CHANEL Counter and asked my fav SA to show me in discontinued drawer , she was kind enough to give me that and i still thank my stars for that 🙂

Essie’s Sunday Funday looks really pretty! I’m not a huge fan of Essie’s brushes though. I find the narrow brush makes it more likely that my polish is going to end up a bit streaky. But I’d consider getting over my objection to their brush for that color.

My favorite orange hued polish is Julep’s “Karen”. Mostly because it shares a name with me. But it also is a lovely orange sherbert type color.

I like a wider brush, too, and I agree that some of the narrower, stiffer brushes can make polishes prone to streaking!

The Essie one is just beautiful! Mind you, I kind of love all of them, but Sunday Funday, Marquise and Amy are my picks here 🙂

I had to check my collection because I was sure I had something close lol
We’re just drawn to certain things, I guess.
Kinda reminds me of Orly’s Terracotta, OPI’s Baguette Me Not and China Glaze’s High Hopes.
