BECCA Tangerine Dreams nail colour was released with the Halcyon Days collection along with two other colours, Summerdaze which Helen reviewed for me and Dancing Barefoot. Tangerine Dreams is soft coral shade, I see something of the salmon pink about this colour too. It has a super glossy finish: in the pictures below I am wearing two coats with no top coat. It is slightly translucent as the free nail edge is visible if you look very closely.
I really like the handle on these bottles. The rubberised material makes it easy to open and grip. The brush has a nice size and shape too. I found I had wear with this manicure quite quickly but this was probably an error on my part missing out a top coat. Not to mention the uneven surface of my nails. The colour and finish was a delight to wear though. I think this is a great holiday colour as it looks really nice against tanned skin and it also makes a lovely pedicure shade.

I compared the colour to a few oranges and corals to put the colour in to context. In the pictures above, you can see the colour compared to Illamasqua Gamma*, Max Factor Bright Orange*, Rimmel Coralicious and 17 Pink Grapefruit. Hopefully you can see from the comparison that Tangerine Dreams is quite a light and muted coral-orange shade.
The Becca nail polishes cost £12 and I bought this particular bottle from Zuneta.
*Both the Max Factor and Illamasqua polishes were PR Samples.
