Orly Emberstone

without flash

This is Orly first time trying an Orly! This is from the new(er) Mineral FX collection.
I used 2 coats of this and one of Seche Vite. This is really pretty! I don't think the pics are really accurate though. The first 2 look more blue-based, cherry red than it really is. The last 2 are too orange. In real life, it's a bright red with lots of gold shimmer, but it can look orange.
The application on this was good, I didn't have any problems. The brush seemed average. Not bad by any means, but nothing spectacular. I know this looks really beat up in pics...but I wore this for 3 or 4 days, so I obviously did get a lot of tipwear!
I really like this, but the problem is, like I said in my last post...this is similar to OPI Animal-istic, and I have to admit, I think I like that one a little better. The difference is that this is more glittery, with the gold in it, but really, the base colors are super close. Ah well, still love both of them!!
