So no nuances in color difference? I always feel when different words describe the same color they have often slight differences

No, there is no difference in colour.
There is only a difference in origin, 'oranye' is a loanword from Dutch.

Colour differences are usually expressed with words like "muda' (young) or 'tua' (old).
biru muda = light blue.
biru tua = dark blue.
