NotD Autumn Swirl

For once I'm doing something that actually matches the season. I originally tried something more complex, but my freehand skills still suck, so I'll try it again in a couple of weeks.
But for now I have a Nail of the Day that's based on a polish I mixed a few months ago. I don't have a 'recipe' for this one, I just poured together various shades of orange and bronze and a bit of pink. The result was a very pleasant shimmery peachy orange.

First I did my usual basic application of nail treatment, ridge filler, two coats of polish and Seche Vite. Check out the gorgeousness of that frankenpolish:

Then I painted a swirly design on my nails, first in brown, then golden and coppery glitter. A layer of CND Air Dry, and the manicure was finished!

A couple of questions for my readers:
Do you prefer a full list of the polishes I used or is this format better?
Should I put a teaser pic above the cut?
