Jordana Glitters 17 Copper Blaze

After a week of my Hits Demeter orange holo manicure, I added an accent on my ring finger with Jordana Glitters 17 Copper Blaze.  I bought this earlier this year at K-Mart, and it was very inexpensive.

There is only one coat of Copper Blaze in the pictures below, but I did have to go over my brush strokes to get the brush to release the large hex glitter.  With one coat of Copper Blaze, you can still see the underlying polish color. From what I can tell, the glitter is suspended in a clear base and does not alter the color of the underlying polish.  The glitter lies flat, and the addition of a coat of Seche Vite made it very smooth.  This was not a top coat hungry glitter.

I used Copper Blaze as the accent on my right hand, the one that doesn't often get photographed.  On my left I had Hits Glitter Forte Punk Rock.  My husband preferred the Hits glitter.  He is not a fan of hex or chunky glitter.  This is probably the only area where he is a traditionalist.

Please excuse my dry cuticles in the pictures below:


You can see on my ring finger, near the top left of the photo, that the glitter lies completely flat and smooth.

The glitter may appear golden in the pictures in the sun, but it's definitely orange rather than gold.



Blurry, but you can see the holo from Demeter showing through.

Thank you for reading my blog!


  1. You make orange look so awesome!
    I gave you a Liebster award here:

    1. Thank you! The funny thing is that I don't even think regular orange is a good shade against my skin, just red-orange or coral-orange maybe, and even then I'm not sure, but I love orange polish so much that I don't care. I just like looking at it in polish bottles, and I like looking at it on my nails.

      Oooh! That's an award I haven't heard of before! Cool! Thank you! I will let you know as soon as I do a post on it!

    2. Well I think it looks great on you :D I'm a pasty white haha so orange just doesn't really look amazing on me. It maybe because I'm not a huge fan of orange in the first place, I love it on others just not on me.
      And yay I'm excited to read your post on it <3
