This polish will be $12.50 and is capped at 30. It is inspired by a photo of Geralt and Ciri with a stormy grey, orange, pink sunset behind them.

Calm Before the Storm is a light misty grey scattered holo base with heavy orange/pink/gold crystal flakies and 2 other color shifting flakies.

I love the flakies in this polish. They just are so fun and shifty and it's fun to wear!
I used two coats and this was fully opaque. It dried down to a smooth finish and a shine.
Matte nail macro.
I really love this both matte and glossy, it's just so good either way!
