Let It Snow #7: Fireside Glow

I was looking forward to this one =) I knew exactly what I wanted to do! Long ago, I had seen this gorgeous image from a blogger I'm going to call the Mistress of Colour. Just check it out!

Anyway, I started with Orly Rockin' Rockette. After two coats of that and one of Seche, I wore it for a day or two and then painted on another thick coat and white that was still wet, glorped on a bit of China Glaze Winter Berry, Orly Old School Orange and Essence Wanna Be Your Sunshine. All but the Essence and the Seche are from Kelly <3 I owe her so hard.

Anyway, here they are!

It doesn't look half bad! I picked up my KleanColor Chunky Holo Black and dabbed some on to show embers. Unfortunately the base of the KC is pigmented (a bad decision all around) and it dulled my yellow a bit.

It also didn't appear to do much other than that =( In lower light though...

Looks pretty cool! I'm sad about the darkening of the yellow, but it's not terrible. In the future, I wouldn't do the KC. Oh wells~~ Check everyone else!
