Swatchity-Swatch: OPI Tangerine Scene

Hello gentle readers.

Friday, at last. I am kind of looking forward to the weekend. Time to have a little fun, do some shopping, maybe pick up some polish and so forth... Get out and enjoy this unseasonably nice weather we are having.

To celebrate March temps in January, I have orange. Bright, clear, almost neon orange. This is OPI Tangerine Scene. This is a creme that thinks it wants to be a jelly. It is very shiny and smooth. I applied three coats and top coat.

Photographs were taken in my lightbox under my OttLight.

OPI Tangerine Scene has a very nice formula. Smooth and easy, it applies like a little bit of a dream with that fab brush that OPI does so very well. There was no running, pooling, dragging or bubbling. The first coat was a touch thin and streaky but subsequent coats took care of all of that, just fine. I don't really know about dry time as I didn't wear this one for very long.

Do you own Tangerine Scene? What do you think about this bright, warm orange polish? I don't know what collection this polish is from but I do believe that it is still pretty easy to locate and purchase. I have seen it here and there.

Thank you so much for coming by. Have a great Friday and may your polish never bubble.


  1. What a beautiful orange polish - it reminds me of a creamsicle. :)

  2. Ooooooh I love this polish, looks beautiful on you!!!! Have a fab weekend xxxx

  3. I don't have this and it sure looks great on you!  I read something about how tangerine is going to be the color of the year for 2012.  It's such a cheerful color.

  4. That's right! Pantone declared Tangerine colour of the year for '12. Hey, at least they got the name of the colour right, this year. lol

    Thank you for your kind words. :)

  5. Thank you so much! You as well. :D

  6. Ooh, I like this one! It's really bright, but also kind of muted. Interesting!

  7. That is what I like about this one. It is bright but not obnoxious. I don't mind an obnoxious orange, on occasion but it had better be a fluorescent neon, dammit! lol

  8. that is gorgeous! right on trend too! ;)

  9. Thank you. :) I read that Pantone declared tangerine the colour of the year. :D
