So the little black nail polish wearing, corset sporting, goth girl at heart loves this color…and not because of the name! I’ve always had a tendency to lean towards dark nail polish and this is no exception…even if it has glitter. What I love about this is actually the glitter…it’s silver against black – yay!! – but not only that it’s different sizes: big, medium and small. Very cool. What a way to play on glitter, Orly. Smart move!
I am so sweet on this blue gray. I wish I could carry off gray nail polish and I wish I could carry off some of the blues I see out there…and this is a perfect compromise! This concrete blue hints at periwinkle, too. It’s got a mild blue shimmer that runs through it, making this blue-gray a total winner in my book!
Things that make me go SQUEEEEE…and when I saw this on my nails, I sure did that. 🙂
I’m currently wearing this on my nails – loving this shiny foil like effect!
Out of all the 3 Foil Fxes, this one flattered me the most and I loved it. I looked at it on me and the only thought that ran through my head was, “This reminds me of rose gold!”
It looked super futuristic on me, but I did like this…it reminded me of an old school Urban Decay I had about 15 years ago.
Not one my favorites…only because it’s too close to gold and I look awful in gold. Rose gold (I love it makes things have an antique-y feel to it!) is a bit cooler in tone so I find I tend to favor it than straight up yellow gold. When I looked at this color from a distance on me it really wasn’t very flattering for me.
As always, click the thumbnails to see the bad cuticles up close. 😉
I’m not partial to pastels and I guess Orly had to put up some pastels because well, it’s spring and what is that season without pretty happy colors for me to throw up on?
I did have problems on most of them. I tried different base coats and they still had a tendency to be a bit chalky and unpredictable. All were 2 coats aside form Cotton Candy. I think I had a bunk bunch of bottles. Oh well. *shrugs*
Pixy Stix – Shade (L) and Sunlight (R)
Not quite as bright as some other pinks out there, but…it’s got a pretty darn close neon factor.
Cotton Candy – Shade (L) and Sun (R)
Dunno why, but IÂ think ‘coral’ when I see this on me.
Gumdrop – Shade (L) and Sunlight (R)
I thought of China Glaze’s For Audrey when I put this on. Will amend post later to add in a comparison swatch
Lemonade – Shade (L) and Sunlight (R)
Just reaffirms my belief that IÂ was never meant to wear pastel yellow ORÂ yellow nail polish, period. Ever.
Lollipop – Shade (L) and Sunlight (R)
This reminds me of a lavender shade that’s been liberally doused with pink…
Snowcone – Shade (L) and Sunlight (R)
IÂ thought it was a periwinkle color, but it’s more along the lines of a light turquoise.
