The Neverending Pile Challenge: Two discontinued polishes

Good morning! Hope everyone's survived the week! Yesterday after I finished tutoring, my husband and I walked around Boston and got some really good burgers. We don't eat out very often so it was a special treat!

Today's Neverending Pile Challenge prompt is discontinued. I started with a base of a very old untried, Sephora by OPI Just a Little Dangerous (a dark purple shimmer). I got this polish around Christmas 2012 in that Tinsel Town set of minis. I thought Sephora by OPI was completely gone, but apparently they still make gel polish!

Then I added a coat of Hot Mess Lacquers Fuego. If you've been familiar with indie brands for a while, you might remember Hot Mess--I think she was pretty popular, but she closed up shop suddenly about a year ago and vanished off the face of the earth. She was also a member of the forums I frequent, but I wasn't really into indies yet when she left. This winter, someone at the forums kindly gifted me a bottle of Hot Mess Fuego for a Secret Santa swap.

Fuego is a topper with beautiful orange-yellow-green color-shifting particles--I think it's the same color shift as in the famous Max Factor Fantasy Fire! Check out my photos!

Sephora by OPI Just a Little Dangerous, two coats, plus Hot Mess Lacquers Fuego, one coat. Out the Door topcoat.

Beautiful, no? I'm really glad I have a bottle of this stuff! Must Fuego-ize everything!!

Total untrieds tried: 37



  1. I have a bottle (and a half) that I've been hoarding. I don't want to ever run out. It's like liquid gold! This is gorgeous! I love your combination.

  2. Very pretty! Too bad they're discontinued!
