Ellagee ~ Ring Ding Ding Ding Dingeringeding



Ellagee ~ Ring Ding Ding Ding Dingeringeding
Terracotta orange with holo effect

Today I’m going to show you an orange polish with a funny name: Ring Ding Ding Ding Dingeringeding. It’s orange with a muted holo effect.

The formula is good and the polish covers in two coats. Drying time is good.


My pictures aren’t colour accurate. I couldn’t catch the dustiness/terracotta colour on cam, so this looks way more bold than it actually is.

Here’s two coats and no topcoat with flash:


I wish it looked like that in real life too, haha. Here’s a low light picture:


Imagine it more Autumn-y than the picture suggests and I think you got the picture.

I made a tiger mani out of it. I sponged white down the middle of my ring and middle finger. I used H&M’s Snow White for that purpose. Then I stamped tiger stripes on those two fingers. The motif came from BP-16. I stamped paw prints on the rest of the nails with a motif from a no name Essence stamping plate.
One layer of motif-smearing topcoat, and here’s the final mani:  


One last shot:


I’m not happy with the polish because it’s leaning too much toward Autumn. But oh well, you can’t win them all, can you.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Muted holo
Overall impression: I’m not a huge fan. There’s nothing wrong with the quality of the polish though
Buy again: No
