Believe me when I say I used to detest the colour orange. I disliked its tones and thought it clashed with my skin tone and hair - it was just a definite no-go for me. Last Summer however, I went a bit mad for orange shades on my nails..talk about an episode of 'change your mind'! I loved the way it gave you a bit of a glow after a day in the sun or just with a basic outfit, it stood out a little more. When the Andy Warhol collection for NARS came out last Winter, it was this nail polish that caught my eye.

'TV Party' which is described as a 'vivid orange' is quite a toned down orange shade - compared to my fav Orly 'Melt Your Popsicle' which is a bright neon slap bang in the face orange, this is a lot more subtle, but still packs a punch. You can tell there's some red undertones in there which I think is what makes it a little different from other orange shades out there. Application is creme smooth and it's opaque within two coats, which I do love from a nail polish. I always apply a top coat after any nail polish application, but TV Party had such a glossy finish that it may not have been necessary. Lasting power is worth every penny - I wore this on my holiday to Cape Verde and it lasted the whole week beautifully, and that's complete with dealing with sand, sun, sea and chlorine - the end result is me feeling smug that I don't have to waste precious holiday time applying a new colour to my nails. Win.

You can still buy TV Party and the other colours from the Andy Warhol collection for £14.00. My love affair with the colour orange continues - I'm still not perfectly comfortable with wearing it in the form of clothing or shoes, but bags and nails I am very much overly comfortable with. Thumbs up to TV Party - you're helping me in my conversion process!
