Apt polish name is apt.
It's pretty enough in the bottle:
And pretty meh when swatched alone:
But when layered over black (Pop Beauty Black, in this case), it is RED HOT:
I LOVE this mani, and I'm so sad I'm going to be removing it shortly (need to file in the worst way! ack!). This polish looks great over Milani Garnet Gems (or CG Lubu Heels or any similar shade), too, which is what I should have paired it with in the first place, but I forgot I had it and just wound up swatching that combination on a false nail after my full mani was done.
Definitely going to break this one out again after Easter, but on shorter nails and I'm sure I'll love it even more then, just because I prefer wearing darker shades on shorter talons.
Kleancolor has a ton of crazy, fun glitters, along with your more normal shades, and they're super affordable. They even offer free shipping over $40 on their website. I got this one from ebay, but I'll definitely be place an order on the official site sometime in the near future.

Loooooved this mani. The glitters are all from the Color Club glitter collection that came out a few years back, except for the blue, which is Pure Ice Strapless, I believe. They're all layered over a coresponding cream shade... I don't even remember all the ones I used. Um. Ruby Deer by China Glaze (red), Pippa by Zoya (yellow), Starboard by China Glaze (green), the blue... that might be Calypso Blue (?) by Orly and then Grape Pop by China Glaze (purple).
I do wish I had a true yellow glitter, but the gold worked okay layered over Zoya's Pippa, I think.
