Once upon a time, there was a little Indie named Aly's Dream Polish. She burst on the scene with a zillion holos, and *blew my mind*. So much, so, that I couldn't decide which I wanted... so I didn't buy any. I had a sad.
And then, she got popular, and all the pretty bottles found other homes, and I had a sad.
And then, she got sick and went away, and I had MOAR sad.
One day, the Princess Aly awoke from her sickness and had a huge PRESALE! where all the pretties were available, if the masses were able to pass the trials of PATIENCE and then present the GOLD.
And, lo, I passed the trials, and bought (among others) the lovely Aly's Dream Polish Firebrick.
And my sad went away, banished from the Kingdom, never to return.
I absolutely love it. Perfect blend of reddish brown, with the scattered holo that evokes fire.
I actually wore it by itself for awhile before I messed with it. I had purchased a set of Essence Vintage District polishes from a blog sale, and thought that the three would make a fun dotticure with Firebrick.
I started with Shopping @ Portobello Road, a dusty-yet-vibrant teal.
I am forever on the hunt for that perfect peachy-melon color, and if this isn't it, it's darn close. Vintage Peach is lovely!
The last layer of dots I did with Antique Pink, another dusty-but-vibrant color. Definitely not an old-lady rose color.
I just love how they all went together. The Vintage District polishes are so cool - it's almost like they took a neon and toned it down - the color is still bright and pigmented, but it's not in-your-face loud. I really like them!
I also like the half-moon effect I got by leaving the top-third of the nail free of dots. I couldn't bear to cover up all of Firebrick!

So, dear traveler, be forewarned that it may not be a simple task to acquire the fabled Dream Polish of Aly, but it may be worth it!
