Orange You Glad I Joined The Rainbow Challenge?

Today's color in the Rainbow Challenge is Orange.

I chose to use a base of HITS Demeter, a beautiful orange linear holo.  I used three coats because after two a bit of visible nail line was still showing and I don't like my goods hanging out there for the world to see.

I decided to top it with Dandy Nails Into the Fire, a beautiful orange jelly base with scattered holos and orange bar glitter. (Look ma, no curling glitter!  That's how its done overpriced egotistical polish maker, the fabulous indie Dandy Nails is able to find glitter that doesn't curl AND I don't have to pay $20.00 for it! /soapbox off).  These two paired together perfectly.  Into the Fire took Demeter into a bit of a deeper orange and the holo still was able to show through a bit.  The bar glitter was the perfect amount of bling without being too much.  The holo bits in Into the Fire just added the perfect amount of punch.

Dandy Nails is a great indie polish line and one I've been very happy with.  I've owned this polish for a few months and it is still in perfect condition.   The HITS No Olimpio collection is simply stunning.  I haven't had a dud from it yet.

Onto the photos (RIP long nails, I'm sporting the nubbins again).

You can purchase Dandy Nails through her Etsy Store.
