Daring Digits Almandine & Amy’s Nail Howl At The Moon

The final of my polishes from Daring Digits polish; this is Almandine. Unlike the others, which have been glitter topcoats, this is a shimmer, and a pretty unique (to me, anyway!) colour too.

blurry, but it was the only photo I got that showed the subtle shimmer :)

What colour is this? I’m not quite sure. Dusty purple brown, with super fine multi-coloured shimmer. This almost looked like a duochrome, but if it is (and it’s not meant to be) it’s pretty subtle.

This was two coats, they went on smoothly and dried moderately quickly.

And over that I put one coat of Amy’s Nail Boutique Howl At The Moon.

Howl At The Moon is a gorgeous autumn glitter top coat, with small red, yellow and black hexes and what looks like super fine red and black glitters. All the glitter is matte, and the combination works really well together, and is packed in the bottle!

Whole hand photo – I wore this mani to the first ever Art in the Woolshed exhibition locally, and had a few comments on how it looked like I had splatter painted this myself. No, no, this is easier! 😀

And with proper top coats – Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food, topped with a quick dry top coat for shine. It looks bumpy in these photos, but it wasn’t.

  1. These two polishes together shouldn’t work but they totally do!

    • hehe it’s fun picking the base colour! I wanted something cool toned but thematically similar, which would show all the glitters (and go with my outfit, most importantly) 😀 I’m glad it worked! Thanks for reading 🙂
