I don't know what it is, but I always like asking people what they want to see on my nails. One day, the boy responded with "fire." So I dipped into my untrieds and went to work!
Orly Emberstone. This was one of the Mineral FX polishes from last fall. I found it on super duper clearance at Sally's and I am so glad I picked it up. Emberstone just glows. Depending on the light, it can appear more red or more orange, so I'll stick with red-orange. The mineral particles really set it apart although not sure it justifies the higher price tag, but it was definitely worth the $1.99 I paid!
To make Emberstone go on fire, I added a coat of Zoya Chloe, a flakie that flashes orange, yellow, and green. But because that wasn't enough, I added Kleancolor 2-2-Tango on my tips. Kleancolor makes some amazing glitters and did I mention they cost a dollar?? Of course, I had days of clouds when I did this mani, but hopefully you get the gist.
Lately, I love doing these types of manicures because they help me go through my untrieds, but in a meaningful way. I don't swatch polishes, so this is how I justify buying so much polish :-D
Now this manicure was awful to photograph because either I got the color of Emberstone correct, but then there was no sight of the flakies. So here we go. And wow, my nail lengths were crazy haha.
