On Orange Alert

So my goodies (and Chris) arrived from India today! He brought back awwwwesome stuff!! I posted yesterday about the nail polishes that he found for me, and today, I decided to use them for my nail art!! To my Indian readers, I need your help- do you know what color this is? I have two VERY different colors with the same color name label!

I used Lotus Herbals Colour Dew Orange Alert (different than the one on their website- it's an amazing orange creme, totally looks like the color of papaya) as a base, with American Apparel Cotton for the flower, outlined in the actual Lotus Herbals Colour Dew Orange Alert, which IS the shade on their site, a shimmery golden color. Topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

My goodies!!

Pashmina shawls, the 2 on the left are mine, the green one flashes orange from different angles, and the one on the right is my roommate's, and is hand embroidered! The beads were the gift of a few of the men Chris was working with in India, they thought I'd like them, and they were right, they're lovely! :)

Emerald green Kurta, it's a type of Indian attire that women wear- somewhat like a tunic. :) Its hand embroidered and lovely!
Lilac colored kurta, this one is also hand embroidered, and is long-sleeved!


  1. Wow what lovely goodies!!! Indian fabric and colours are so beautiful!

  2. Well,The red Shawl has "Aari work" as embroidery on it,,,"Aari work" is a speciality of "Kashmiri handcraft",,,It looks beautiful !

    And the Lilac Color Kurta has "Lucknawi Embroidery(Kadhai..Hindi word for Embroidery,speciality of Lucknow,a town in U.P(India).
