Australis – Bronze Flash

This is an old polish – note the square bottle, not the spiffy round style they have today. It needed a little thinning, but otherwise applied beautifully. It dries a little bit darker than the bottle colour.

After a couple of days I thought I’d try a coat of Essie’s Luxeffects ‘Shine of the Times’ over the top, and wow! It’s a little bit hard to see here, but it really brought out the oranges and reds in ‘Shine of the Times’. The flecks of green around the edges were pretty, but not overwhelming.

Loving that combination!


Set in Citrus

Hi… it’s been a while. My inclination to Konad has dwindled, but the polish has stayed so I figure I might as well share what I’m wearing, even if it’s not stamped. All right, let’s get this nail du jour thing started!

This is Australis ‘Citrus’ – the original orange with gold shimmer, not the new orange creme – with a layer of Essie ‘Set in Stones’. The formula on Citrus is super-streaky for the first coat, but seems to sort itself out for anything after that. Set in Stones is a dream.
