Ember Rust - Born Pretty Wine Malaga BPH03

My collection of red holographic polishes is increasing in size...! I just can't resist!

[Red Corvette]
Today's shade was generously supplied by Born Pretty for review. This is Wine Malaga (BPH03) from the Born Pretty Holo Series here. I think it's a great autumn/winter shade (yes, we are in Australia here...).

This polish comes in a cardboard box with a shiny holographic label to tell you what shade is inside. There's also a little round window cutout so you can see the bottle inside.

As you can see, Wine Malaga is more of a orangey-red. The holo particles are fine and scattered. I'm not sure if it's due to the base shade, but rather than a rainbow holo flame, you get more of a red-orange flame effect from the holographic particles.

This is an interesting formula! It's slightly uneven at one coat, as the holo particles tend to pool rather than spread. It needs a quick confident hand with strokes to avoid bare patches. This clears up with two coats, which is what I have on here. Oh, and also! Strangely enough, it dries matte! I definitely wanted a rich glossy shine, so I used a generous layer of topcoat after.

You can see a faint hint on my ring finger here where the holo particles were less obvious. It's really such a rich luxurious shade once applied though! I definitely recommend a decent base coat as this polish may stain your nails due to the amount of red pigment.
