China Glaze Oh How Street It Is

Hello Oh How Street It Is, a screaming almost neon orange from the 2009 Kicks collection!  If you haven't heard, Pantone Color Institute has named "Tangerine Tango" the top color of 2012.  China Glaze recently promoted a statement saying that you can help capture this trend with the above polish, so in order to be (at least somewhat) current, I decided to pull it off my shelf.

Tangerine Tango in its bold orange glory.

For this manicure, I used a base coat of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and a top of CND Air Dry.  Polish formula was great, despite the bottle sitting on my shelf for over 2 years.

Again, this is not a neon color but it is VERY neon looking.  Neons dry matte, but not this creme!

Extreme sun angle!

Even though this is a picture in the shade you can see how bright this color is.  It's definitely going to be an interesting year if this is what everyone will be wearing.  I attempted a picture indoors with the flash, but the camera just couldn't handle it.

So instead, I'll leave you with the press release from China Glaze :]

China Glaze can be found online through several etailers, including my favorite Head2Toe Beauty, Sally's Beauty Supply as well as TransDesign.  You can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
