I find myself generally gravitating towards colors with orange undertones such as peaches, corals or orangey-reds. I'm not sure why because I'm really not that fond of the color orange, but for some reason I love it on my nails.

Last week I painted my nails one of my all-time favorite colors: Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It by OPI. I've had this color for about 5 or 6 years now, and I still love it just as much as the day I bought it. In my opinion it's the perfect bright, orangey-red and looks great on short nails.
This week I tried out Tart Deco by Essie. In the bottle it appears to be a creamy, pastel peach. When you apply it, it goes on much more pigmented and appears brighter (which isn't always a good thing). Maybe because I was expecting it to be different was why I wasn't really loving it. The first day I had this polish on my nails it looked to me like a chalky neon 80's color. After a few days it's starting to grow on me, but I think I'm going to have to try this one again when I have a tan.

Here it looks neon...
Next week I think I'm going to go for a tropical red or purple. Possibly Essie's Lacquered Up or Jamaica Me Crazy.

What are your all-time favorite nail colors? Do you wear certain colors in certain seasons? Or do you prefer to wear similar colors year-round?
