Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Burgundy Orchid + Rainbow Honey Frozen Flame

 Today I have a lovely oldie-but-goodie for you, Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Burgundy Orchid. I have had this polish since I was a child, long before this polish obsession kicked in, and certainly before I knew how special holos and duo- and multichromes were (I doubt the words ever crossed my mind until a couple years ago, actually). I just knew these polishes were pretty. And pretty it is! Burgundy Orchid is a lovely purple-red-gold multichrome. It has an insane color-shifting effect -- in person it will never just look like one color, the edges are always red or reddish gold.It's truly stunning on its own, but I also decided to complete the mani with Rainbow Honey Frozen Flame, which is a fun mix of small blue and orange hexes, small silver holo bars, and large gold holo bars. The gold bars did have some trouble lying flat, but I personally love bar glitters so I just trimmed 'em down and was happy. I really like the way these two polishes looked together, check it out!

 On my nails:
1 coat Seche Clear
3 coats Sally Hansen Nail Prisms Burgundy Orchid
2 coats Rainbow Honey Frozen Flame
1 coat OPI Topcoat
1 coat Seche Vite

It really kills me that I used to have tons of these polishes back in the day, but threw all but one away due to the formula getting all mucked up. If only I'd known of Seche Restore back then, so many polishes would still be with me today... at least I was able to hold onto this one though :) And it is positively gorgeous, so I guess I lucked out.
