Swatch and Review: Glittering Elements Burning Desire

It was a bright, sunny day today, which means I got to try out a new holo!  Yay for me.  I just recently ordered a couple of polishes from an Australian indie brand I hadn’t tried before, Glittering Elements, so I was eager to try one today.  I chose the shade Burning Desire.

Burning Desire is such a beautiful and complex color.  It has a cool-toned medium pink base, and added to that are what appear to be golden and darker pink sparkles.  It also has a tightly scattered holographic flash.  In the sunlight, all of this combines to form a sparkle bomb on my nails.  It really is so gorgeously flashy.

The application for this polish was a dream.  It was the perfect consistency, and it didn’t flood or streak at all.  If applied in thicker coats, it really could be a one-coat polish; most of my nails were fully opaque at one coat (once I realized that it might be possible).  I used two coats for the photos.  I used an aqua base for this mani, and I did not use top coat.

Isn’t it just gorgeous?  Let me tell you, it looks even better in person.  This is definitely one of my new favorites!

I purchased Burning Desire from the Glittering Elements online shop for around $11.50 USD.
