Orly Emberstone

Orly Emberstone is an orange-leaning red foil with gold shimmer from last year's Mineral FX Collection. I've mentioned on here multiple times that I am a huge fan of Orly's FX collections. All of the polishes from those lines are really exceptional and Emberstone is no exception. This is easily one of the prettiest reds I own.






Emberstone's formula is excellent and covers in two coats. It goes on smoothly and opaquely. Emberstone really is the perfect name for this polish because it positively glows. The shimmer is really phenomenal and catches the light beautifully. This may be a red but it's far from boring. The base color is very vibrant and the foil finish only serves to amplify that.


I hope Orly releases another FX collection soon. Their last couple releases haven't really been doing it for me. In the meantime, it's definitely worth it to track out some past FX gems like Emberstone. I was lucky enough to land this on clearance at Sally not too long after the Mineral FX Collection originally came out, but I've noticed that several of the Ultas around me still regularly stock both the Mineral and Cosmic FX Collections, so that might be the place to start if you're looking to add Emberstone or any of the other FX polishes to your collection.

    1. Thank you! I was really excited when I found this on clearance. I had wanted it but couldn't justify the full price at the time. I'm glad I was able to get it!

    1. Thanks! That's what I like about it best too. It gives it an almost duochrome look.

    1. Thanks! I love the FX polishes because they have a very vibrant, glassfleck-esque finish and many of them are also beautiful duochromes as well, so they tend to be complex in addition to being gorgeous! Orly doesn't make anything close to them in their regular lines, so that's why I find the FX ones so special. :)
