Best Answer

The color of your fingernails should never be orange, healthy fingernails have a slight pink hue to them. If you wear nail polish without a base coat first, overtime the polish can stain your nails, this will happen with dark colored lacquer. If only a couple of fingernails look a little orange, maybe, it could be the start of a fungus infection, although usually your nails will look white to brownish in color if this is the case.
