Cameo Colours- Indian Summer

    Today's NOTD post is Cameo Colours Indian Summer. An intoxicating mix of red, gold, and copper colored glitters in a clear base, that look like sparks on your nails. I know I say I love a lot of the polishes I use but this one I love times 10. Depending on the lighting this polish can look red, orange or even a fiery shade of brown.

     The first time I wore this polish I attempted a twist on the glitter tipped manicure. I wasn't exactly happy with how it turned out but I'm going to try this look again, just with a different application.

     For this look, I used Orly Dayglow as my base and sponged Indian Summer over the tips and down the side of my nail. I didn't get much fading of the glitter and I think that's why I'm not super thrilled with this look. But I do like the way these colors work together. I wore my nails this way for a day and then decided to add Indian Summer over the entire nail.

     This is two coats of Indian Summer over white plus top coat. We had a semi-decent day here and I was able to take a few pictures outside. Unfortunately, this photo does not do this polish justice. I lost a lot of the sparkle with the natural light. But I was able to capture the way the individual glitters sort of "pop" within the polish. The first photo showed more of the sparkle. The application was pretty easy. There was no need to fish for any glitter and it applied pretty evenly on the nail. I did do some slight glitter placement on the second coat to cover a few sparse patches.

     Cameo Colours polishes can be purchased through her store. Prices range from $8 to $10 depending on the polish and come in a 15 ml bottle.

     Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing everyone!
