February 29th: Doomfire Day!

Ah, February 29th! It always seems strange to me as I write down the date given that it only happens once every four years. This year, February 29th has been declared to be Doomfire Day!

Doomfire /duːm, fiYA/ - sunsets having the appearance of the apocalypse; a Baroness X group custom made of elusive unicorn pee pigment

Yes, dear readers, today is all about that gorgeous polish made by Baroness X! Doomfire made my list of most loved indie shades of 2015, and for perfectly good reason. This polish is pure magic, and it looks amazing alone or layered over other polishes. It was created as a group custom for the Baroness X Facebook fan group, The X Army, and as long as you are willing to play nice, you are more than welcome to come join the group. Let's get a closer look at this amazing polish.

Doomfire is absolutely gorgeous on its own. It is sheer, and I have it shown wearing three coats here. Not only is the colour fantastic, the formula is so smooth that it perfectly lays across your nails will a swoop of the brush. If you want opacity while conserving The Precious, you can easily layer it over a similar base shade. 

Why stop there? You can layer Doomfire over other shades for a completely different look. I have done just that to give you an idea of just some of the gorgeous looks that can be created with this beauty. Be forewarned, I am now rocking nubbins as I had two breaks while opening nail mail. While  not appreciated, the irony of the situation did not go lost on me. They may be shorter now, but at least I have pretty polish on them to help ease the pain.

This is such a fun combination! Green polishes don't get enough love, but if you are wanting a little green on your nails for St. Patrick's Day next month without being so in your face, this is a good way to do it.

Given that I pretty much never layer anything over black, hell must have frozen over. As far as I know that hasn't happened, but I did want to share the combination since I know a lot of you like to see this option. It's not quite me, but it is still rather pretty. 

Speaking of pretty, up next is probably my favorite combination!

I wasn't sure this combination was going to work at first, but it was love at first sight as soon as it went on my nails. I definitely don't mind having shorties as long as I can stare at this!

As I mentioned at the beginning of this post, this polish is a custom for the Baroness X Facebook fan group. If you are already a member, this polish will be available for purchase today at 7pm EST. If you are not already a member, you can request membership to the group. Please note that admittance of new members is temporarily on hold for a few days so current members of the fan group can have first access to this beauty. There are other gorgeous polishes on the Baroness X website here that you can pick up and drool over until the gates open.


There are other bloggers that are celebrating Doomfire Day with me, and you should check out their blog posts too!

    1. I was debating on what to layer Doomfire over when I spied the green. The combination reminds me of Colors by Llarowe Gunfighter. I don't think it ever got much love overall, but I really like it and this combo!
