Orly – Glam Rock

Posted by manicuremania on December 7, 2009

This is the perfect matte, seriously.

I have really been looking forward to the Orly Metallic Matte collection, it seems like a great concept. And Glam Rock is kind of awesome, just as I hoped. I love shimmery mattes! I think it applied better than any other matte I’ve ever tried – normally they dry so fast and clump up and I end up with polish an inch thick to get it even! Not so with Glam Rock, though, and I called it even coverage after 2 coats.

Normally I can admire mattes for only a few minutes before I start itching to add glossy topcoat – but I really actually like this better in matte form. It retained a ton of its shimmer even when matte.

Here it is glossy:

Pure Ice – Gold Mist & Iced Copper

Posted by manicuremania on September 16, 2009

pi twoThese are two colors that I don’t really see myself ever enjoying or wearing, so I figured I’d get them out of the way in one post. Like most Pure Ice colors, they’ve got beautiful shimmer. Buuuuut, the colors are just kind of blah.

I should really get rid of the polishes I don’t like…

I did three coats, just for the heack of it. I could have stopped at two on Iced Copper.
