I picked up Sinful Colors’ Citrine, a red-based orange creme, on sale at Rite Aid for 99 cents. Sinful Colors is a line of 3 free nail polishes carried at Walgreen’s, Rite Aid, and other department stores. The polishes usually retail for $1.99, though they go on sale every once in a while for 99 cents. I believe that Citrine is a Rite Aid exclusive.
The black speck on my pinky finger is from the brush, which is disappointing. Also, the formula was a little thin, so it dried unevenly. And while my camera is picking up a lot of red from the orange, I think Citrine would make a great nail polish for Halloween-inspired manicures.
I absolutely love the color of this polish, and I think red-based orange works well with my skin tone, whereas I don’t think I could pull off something that was more yellow based. Do you have any favorite orange polishes?
