Orly Emberstone

I've tried a few Orly polishes and been very impressed. Decided to try another. This is a lovely red/orange colour with subtle gold through it.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It looks red in some lights and orange in others. Slightly iridescent I'd say. I think it also looks kinda foil-like too. Lasted very well! Very nice.

Illamasqua Hemlock

How happy was I when they re-released this? Over the moon! Had been after it for a good while. I put it on top of Avon's Midnight Green. Many a picture to follow...

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. How awesome does it look on top of Midnight Green? It's very good quality and certainly changed the dark green. Check out all the different colours! Pretty and versatile.

China Glaze Black Mesh Crackle

I decided to pop this on top of the last post.

Natural light.


This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying! I'd have to say it's a good quality crackle. Lasted okay. Looks cool on top of the orange colour!

OPI Tangerini Bikini

I last wore this a few years ago and fancied wearing it again. As it approaches Halloween I always seem to be attracted to orange! This isn't a very Halloween orange though, but this is hehe.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly slow drying for an OPI - probably because it's an older one? Brush is excellent and the lid is very comfortable to hold. It lasted well for sure! Lovely orange colour
