Hi everyone! Did you miss me? It’s been awhile since I’ve done a post. I think it’s been about a month that I didn’t even paint my nails! I’ve been in a bit of a funk and also busy making jewelry pieces for my new Etsy Store (shameless plug – JewelrybyRPF). But today’s manicure may have pulled me right out of that funk!
This polish was one of my biggest lemmings! I don’t know for sure when it even came out, the oldest blog post I can find online is from Scrangie from 2010 so probably around then or before. That makes sense since I first got into polish in 2011.
I have other big polish lemmings and I see them for sale now and then but the price usually keeps me away (I’m looking at you Clarins 230!) but this polish I never even saw for sale. Not on Ebay, not in destashes, never. I finally just saw it in a destash last week and I pounced on it! I snatched it right up and just got it in the mail on Wednesday.
Never give up hope of finding those elusive lemmings!!
Hot House Flower is a bright, neon orangy/coral with a pink shimmer. Formula was good. I used three coats plus topcoat. It does take forever to dry but I am still beyond thrilled to finally own this one!
Orly Hot House Flower 3 coats plus topcoat.

It’s so gorgeous!
What are some of your biggest lemmings? Let me know in the comments.
Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.
