China Glaze Orange Marmalade

Before you start singing Lady Marmalade (because I do EVERY time I see this color), let's look at this beauty from the 2009 Summer "Summer Days" collection from China Glaze - the orange glass flecked Orange Marmalade.  I actually wore this as my Halloween manicure - contained in the glass flecks is some gold particles that really made my nails shine.

I used a base coat of Seche Natural, 3 coats of Orange Marmalade and a top of Seche Vite.  The formula was good but I had a tiny bit of VNL afterwards.

Sun!  Check out all the gold in the bottle!  It's not a neon orange, despite looking quite hot on my nails ^_^  Instead, it reminds me a lot of an orange prescription bottle - less brown though.  Go figure.

More glass fleck goodness.  This is different from a glitter because it's not gritty or bumpy, but it's not really a shimmer either because it looks like crushed glass has been added to the mix.  

For laughs, here are some pictures from summer 2009 before I was blogging.  I used a "natural light" makeup mirror as my light source.
