Spotlight On: Mode Cosmetics #10324 Desert Flame

Firstly, please read my post Introducing.... Mode Cosmetics Nail Enamel! if you have not done so already, as it contains general information about this brand of nail enamel.
Unfortunately I am unable to swatch #10322 - Soft Chilli and #10323 - Copper for you at this time, as both shades are discontinued, and I have not been able to find them anywhere - but I won't be giving up! If or when I find them in the future I will definitely be showing you all my excitement!

Desert Flame is a discontinued shade of the Mode Cosmetics collection, so if you like what you see and happen to find one - be sure to snap it up! Of the 20 discontinued shades, this one was nearly impossible to find. One of those shades that are difficult to define, I would describe it mostly as a pinky copper, but on some angles it has a more earthy rust colour to it. The polish has an almost glittery shimmer when it catches the sunlight, as you can see in the picture below. A little difficult to apply as you have to be very careful of unsightly brush strokes, but otherwise good consistency and pigmentation. I think this is a great colour that shouldn't have been discontinued!

Nail art: I used Crystallized Swarovski Flat Backs. These ones are Foiled Xilion Rose (2028/ss5.) Colour: 362 Light Peach. Set into wet nail polish and apply top coat. Voila!

I will be listing a bottle of this shade on OZtion for any Australian ladies interested in owning one! I will also be offering it for trade on MakeupAlley in the near future for anyone, anywhere! For ladies outside of Australia who would like to buy a bottle, please email me and I will happily list one on eBay for you. I will also be selling sample packs of Swarovski Crystals for anyone interested in replicating my nails! If you have tried these links and Desert Flame or the crystals are not available on any of these sites, please email me, and I will endeavour to source them for you.
