NOTD: Star Spangled

No matter how much my boyfriend tells me off for buying magazines "just for the freebies", I highly doubt I'll ever stop being tempted by something shiny on the front of a glossy - this month, it was the choice of four mini Orly polishes with the December issue of Cosmopolitan UK (with Miley Cyrus on the cover) which drew me in - I went for 'Star Spangled', which looks like a lovely dense glitter-packed red polish in the bottle. It applied beautifully, although on application it's less of a glitter polish and more of a shimmer. The first coat goes on quite pink-looking, but a second built it up nicely to a gorgeous deep, shimmering red shade which I can't help but think will be perfect for the upcoming festivities! In these photos, you can see two coats of 'Star Spangled' over 17's Strengthening Base Coat.

The other shades available with this December's Cosmo include 'Hair Band', a golden glitter, 'Country Club Khaki', a nude shade, and 'Naughty', a deep burgundy red. Did you pick up this month's Cosmo? Which Orly shade did you go for? Do you like the look of 'Star Spangled'?
