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.
