I've seen some women wearing a red nail varnish but not sure what it is or when I've looked I can't seem to see one like it. It's not a pillar box red but a lighter red with a hint of an orange tone to it. It seems to be more flattering and not quite in your face iykwim

Its defo not an orange varnish but I struggle to find one that's inbetween red and orange.

Anyone have any recommendations?

I have a nails inc one that is just that colour called 'Beach' but it was free on the cover of In Style mag so I don't think it's on general sale. Sorry that's not much help is it confused

Revlon do an orangey red called Craving Coral or something similar (bought in Poundland so may be discontinued). But lots of Corally Orangey reds around including OPI (they do loads but seem to change every year, On Collins Avenue is one) Try looking for something with the word coral in it but coral seems to cover pink red orange. It's very subjective though because someone's light red with orange tone is someone's elses bright red or tomato red.

Check out OPI's colours - The Thrill of Brazil and Red My Fortune Cookie have a distinct orange tone.

Also Nails Inc's The Hurlingham and Leighton Denny's Feel The Burn which is more of a terracotta than a true red may be what you're looking for.

As glad has said, colours are subjective. I've been wearing OPI's My Address Is Hollywood which, to me, is a coral colour that's certainly not in your face or particularly statement making. It suits my summer wardrobe and looks good for day and evening but may not be intense enough for you.

Cheers all, a good few for me to check out. Realise it's a difficult question! I should just ask the next person I see with the perfect coloured nails really!
