Nails of the week- bright orange

This week my nails seem like a tribute to Magic, our goldfish – they are bright orange with some golden shimmery glitter flakes. Very goldfishy!

I used Kiko’s pure orange, 280 in Orange – it is a great solid colour with a very glossy finish. Application was alright, I wish their brush was wider; the colour is well pigmented, but stains a bit, so I put two generous coats and it looked fab.

But I don’t do simple, so I had to add a flaky on top. I used Sancion Angel Jóias do Nilo in Silex (from Brazil). This flaky has a reddish jelly base which applied colourless. The glitter flakes shift from a greeny gold to yellow gold and orange and after drying it looks a little bit matte; this polish hasn’t got that amazing shiny finish. So enters the topcoat!

Overall, I really liked the effect, durability was ace.
