We are big fans of Lex Cosmetics around here. It’s a unique company as it lets customers submit an idea for a nail polish color. The ideas are then put up for a vote and the winning concept becomes a nail polish. As if that wasn’t enough, $1 from each bottle of polish purchased goes to the charity of the creators choice. Pretty cool, right?
Katie was browsing the Lex website contemplating whether or not to place an order. She asked me whether or not I was interested in any of the polishes. Dying Embers immediately caught my eye. The description described Dying Embers as a “dark shimmery grey with a red-orange glow.” Not only did it sound interesting it sounded like nothing else I have in my collection.
Dying Embers is a brown leaning gray jelly with large orange-red, purple and silver and small square silver and orange-red glitter. Sounds complicated but to summarize: GORGEOUS!
I used two coats in my swatches and was more than happy with the results. That being said, I wanted to try this over another polish to see how it fared. I used one coat of Dying Embers over Essie Smokin’ Hot to create an accent nail. I loved the result. Really gorgeous.
There are additional swatches of Dying Embers below the jump as well as swatches of it layered over Smokin’ Hot.
