Orange you glad?

This summer, stars have been having fun with their nails, rocking everything from cartoon character decals (Katy Perry) to electric yellow polish (AnnaLynne McCord). And now, the hottest nail color in tinseltown is tangerine!

Recently, the citrus-y hue has been spotted on both Jessica Alba and Carey Mulligan. Alba sported an orange mani on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in Burbank on Monday while Mulligan donned a bright pedi (rumored to be Capri by Essie) at Comic-Con in San Diego on July 21.

We find that orange is the perfect half-way point between a bright fuchsia and a cherry red -- two seasonless hues that seem to be regulars on fingers and toes, year-round.

Tell Us: Would you wear orange nail polish?
