Constance Carroll - Apricot Sun

What's happening to me? I saw this polish by Constance Carroll and I bought it. It's orange (one of my least favorite colors) and it's shimmery - almost frosty looking. I still saw something in it and wanted to have it.

Constance Carroll, Apricot Sun, 2 coats

The color really isn't my cup of tea, but I'm glad that I got it. It's so freakin' special. Nothing I've seen so far. Once you have tried as many nail polish shades as I have, you start to appreciate the unusual colors more than anything. I mean, there's not much to re-invent, right? It's not like the companies can discover a new color. That's why this one got my attention. It reminds me of China Glaze Sunset Glow. Well, the quality of the polish isn't as good, but the color is just as special and not so neon looking in real life as on these photos.

It's really hard to describe this color. It's salmon-y, orange and dusty pink at the same time, with golden shimmer. Amazing! The brush is round and easy to work with. The formula is OK, but it can apply a bit patchy, so you gotta be careful. It's still very much worth it - this baby costs only €1.64. It's big 3 free, like most of the EU polishes. I might have to arrange a giveaway of this pretty shade if it turns out you find it as special as I do. *hint hint* Just say you'd wanna own it and you're in. Deal?

What do you think about this shade? Would you wear it?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  1. Something must be in the air...because, I too, used to detest orange (apart from orange hair) and now I feel strangely drawn into polishes that bare this juicy shade...:O
    This is gorgeous! I love how you can see it is both orange and pink at the same time, and you still can't call it a coral! Lovely <3

  2. I'm not very fond of orange either, but the shimmer makes it much more interesting.
    Girl, the thing was cheap. The cheapest quality stuff available here is Essence.

  4. Hmmm, zelo zanimiv odtenek. Sigurno tudi ni moj "cup of tea", ampak mogoče bi mu morala dati priložnost, tako kot ti. :)

  16. I'm not a huge orange fan either but that is gorgeous!! It reminds me of silk fabric or that sheer stuff that's orange but shines yellowy-pink.

  17. Morat ću potražiti i ovo kod nas, čini mi se da sam ih negdje vidjela, mada nisam sigurna ima li nekog izbora. Štand je djelovao prilično zapušten. Anyways, I'd love to own it!

  18. Orange isn't a colour that I get on with but this is really pretty! The gold shimmer sells it to me but I don't think I can buy it here in the UK... I'd love to own it! *hint hint*

  28. Nimam še nobenega oranžnega odtenka in si ga tudi nikoli nisem želela, ampak tale je pa čisto nekaj posebnega (tole mora biti učinek zlatega šimra) in mislim, da si spremenila moje mišljenje o oranžni, ki je 'cestarska' barva in je zato nikoli nisem marala ;)

  29. Thanks for the comments, ladies! =)

    @Miss Pie: Ja, kupila sem ga v Tuš drogeriji. Imajo jih v tistih pletenih košaricah.

    @BekahCat: Isn't Constance Carroll a UK brand? It would be really weird to not be able to get it where you live.

    @MissDoll: Hahaha, ja cestarska barva. Ampak to velja samo za neon oranžno. =D
