No nail art this week- despite my hatred of holiday-themed nails, I gave in and did some Christmas nails this past weekend, so you have that to look forward to in about two weeks! I do it for you people. You’re welcome. ;)
In the meantime, I thought I would post about a nail polish line that I feel is so underrated- Orly FX. These are Orly’s line of texture polishes, and for some reason it’s almost impossible to find swatches and reviews of these, and the few that there are aren’t so positive. I can’t imagine why, since I love them! The color pictured here is Rose Pixel, a unique silvery rose gold with a few large silver glitters mixed in that catch the light nicely. The formula was really great- super opaque while applying evenly and not too thick. The polish is so opaque that you could easily get away with two coats, probably even one, but I did three as I found that the third coat really made the difference and brought out the texture. These pictures are without topcoat, but one coat of Seche Vite doesn’t affect the texture much. Two coats makes it totally smooth and really brings out the sparkle, as you’ll see in the upcoming Christmas mani! I’ve been wearing these sans topcoat for four days so far, and not a chip in sight! Definitely love these, and I wish more people knew about these gorgeous polishes!
