Orange You Glad You Stopped By

What came first, the fruit or the colour? A question that, before this challenge, I hadn't really had need to consider. Apparently the English language had no word for the hue before the fruit came along - mystery solved! It was on this note that I figured I'd play it safe by taking the prompt literally and recreating an old design. I find that orange polish never really suits my skin tone, so I probably don't use it as often as I should!

I started with Barry M Matt White before painting the oranges using a mixture of Rimmel Apricot Punch, Zoya Arizona, and China Glaze Kalahari Kiss.

The branches are a blend of China Glaze Mahogany Magic and Kalahari Kiss. I then painted on the leaves using Essie Da Bush

Apologies for the slightly alien-ish tinge to all these pictures - my white balance turned my hands blue, so it was down to Photoshop to try to remedy the situation!
