Fiery coppery nails for Autumn!


I always love the idea of fiery oranges and reds on my nails but never quite found the right colour for my very pale skin. After a girly shopping trip I picked out this glittery, shimmery orange nail polish that I thought I would probably never wear . . . and was seduced!

This one is part of the 'Miss Sporty Crush on you; 3D texture' range and dries virtually instantly to a strange, rough texture. Before applying topcoat, I tried it with a few different glitters and found this wonderful combination. It's given me fireworks on my nails that glint and sparkle without that loud I'M WEARING GLITTER!!!! effect.

  Even before topcoat this nail polish shimmers, especially in low light like candlelight - I wore this on Guy Fawkes night and felt like I was wearing the bonfire on my nails.

I added this glitter which added a warm rainbow of gold. I always find it hard to find a glittery topcoat that isn't too blue. This one is by Beauty UK and I'm afraid I've no idea how long ago I bought it. I sealed it all with my trusty Barry M topcoat and I'm good to go!

Fiery, warm, shimmery, sparkly, coppery, glittery; I'm loving this look! It's just so damn shimmery and my nails are catching the light in the most satisfying way. A top coat really does make all the difference.

Anyway, hope you liked this one. It's always worth having a look in the cheap shops like home bargains, pound stretcher, beautycare etc to find great glittery polishes and then experiment with them over different colours.

I can't stop wiggling my fingers, they're like dancing flames!

Ciao for now
