As mentioned above, Firestarter is orange when cold. These photos are my own swatches on my own nails. I used three generous coats of Firestarter and one coat of Seche Vite dry fast top coat. I could have stopped at two coats of Firestarter but I went for a third for a really saturated colour.
With a change in your body temperature, as you get warmer, Firestarter turns yellow. For photo purposes I used hot water to assist in the colour change.
As I was taking photos and the water on my nails dried, the colour was changing back to the cold colour rather quickly and the following photos were the result of that.
I then wanted to show the colour change from one extreme to the other on the nails so I got my hands completely cold and then dipped the tips of my nails in hot water.
