CG Fireside Glow - Layered

So here's what I did to spice up Fireside Glow (FG).  I added Ulta's Pinata-yada-yada (PYY).  I've featured PYY before; its an awesome multicolored hexagon glitter polish with a clear base.  Super versatile.

I originally wanted to try this with Wet N Wild's Jewerly Heist, but PYY is a much better complement to Fireside Glow.  PYY is a dupe of Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday, and Milani makes a nice dupe too.

This mani is one coat of base, 2 coats of FG, one coat of CG's fastforward (FF) top coat, one coat of PYY, and one coat of CG FF top coat.  CGFF top coat is the best top coat I have for leveling glitters.  Six coats, now my nails are super thick and hard!
