Creative musings in bright colors

Salmon Hands

I really tried to make an orange manicure. As it turns out, the reason I own so few true oranges is that they just don’t look that great on me! That being said, I showed this mani to my boyfriend: “I like it! It looks like fish!” So great, the official salmon hands mani :-p


The inspiration for this particular manicure was a lovely pin on pinterest with a pink-red-orange gradient and some art on it. So, I put together a 3-color gradient (pink-hot orange-orange) with golden glitter, and a tried a watermable with the same three colors. Sadly, the colors were so similar you almost can’t tell! I covered that with glitter as a last ditch effort. *shrug* I think I’ll stick with more sharply defined color differences in my gradients in the future!




  • Orange: Wet n’ Wild – Sunny Side Up
  • Hot orange: Julep – Natasha
  • Pink: Sinful Colors – Pink Forever
  • Glitter: Sephora – I Found A Pot Of Gold


On the plus side, this manicure took maybe 20 minutes. Some day, I will make a pretty orange mani, and everyone (including myself) will be suitably surprised :-D. Except my poor confused boyfriend, who thinks raw fish is pretty.
