YES, 2 weeks in a row!
I have a group of 5 orange linear holos from
Carpe Noctem Cosmetics to compare for you!
Nope, not a dupe in the bunch!
Each polish has its own unique characteristics
that set it apart from its sisters.
Thumb ~ Keep That Fire Burning
This creamy bright orange is packed with multi shifting metallic flakies.
It's from the M For Home collection.
Index ~ Foliage In Flames
Looking for a warm pumpkiny orange with gold metallic flakies?
This is your polish!
One of 2 yummy oranges from the I Come From The Forest Collection.
Middle ~ Canyon Copper
This one looks orange in some lights,
but has a definite copper metallic shift with slight pink undertones.
This is the other must have orange from
the I Come From The Forest Collection.
Ring ~ Gorgeous Gourd Holo
This is a holo'd up re-release from Emily's 1st CNC collection.
A lush dark copper orange sure to warm your cockles.
Pinky ~ Literary Lady.
Why did I include a pink in this comparison?
This is why...
Literary Lady is an old rose to copper shifting polish
of beauty & sophistication.
Not all of these gorgeous oranges are currently available,
but if you have either of the ones not currently for sale
& wondered if getting the others would be adding dupes to your stash,
I can confidently say NOPE, no dupes here!
Each of these polishes stands in its own spotlight
& I can't pick a fav cuz they're all MOST EXCELLENT!
The line up ~ Joss White, CNC Literary Lady, Gorgeous Gourd Holo,
Me being me, I couldn't just leave my nails as is.
So what does one do with 5 orange nails?
I turned them into butterfly wings!
I stamped using Bundle Monster plate BM-XL14,
Joss Black & my beloved Original Creative Shop Stamper.
A for a word or 3 on the Joss Stamping Polishes...they suck!
This is the 3 time I've used the black
& I waited over half an hour before adding fast dry top coat
Seche Vite this time
It's also the 3rd time it's smeared.
I used Joss White with a fine tipped dotter to make the dots
& they smeared too, even after a long wait.
You can see the smearing best on my index nail.
I have zero hope for the Lilac Shimmer
& can't recommend this brand for stamping or other nail art.
I don't blame the US stockist I bought them from
as she didn't make the polish
& probable stocked them based on somebody's recommendation.
This is why I haven't linked the Joss to her site.
Why you use sucky stampy polish over those claw pretties?
Thanks Jazz! I know better now. LOL
Thanks for stopping by
& don't forget that the
debuts this Friday!
