Here is what is on my nails today:
This is Orly “Liquid Vinyl” (2 coats), which is just a plain black polish, topped with Orly “Atomic Splash” (2 coats). I have it topped with Orly’s Won’t Chip top coat, last time I paired Orly with Orly like this it lasted well over a week with only minor tip wear! We shall see if this is a recurring phenomenon…
Atomic Splash is from Orly’s Flash Glam FX line. It is a clear base with small circular and large hexagonal glitter particles. The glitter itself is a beautiful pewter grey colour. I wish it was opaque enough to wear on its own! I think the effect would be really cool, but I also think it would take about 50 coats… As far as a glitter goes it is quite easy to work with. I find it similar to OPI’s “Pirouette my Whistle” top coat, in that the glitter goes on really easily, but it is a bit tricky to get it evenly distributed.
I am pleased with the result though, it catches the light nicely! I think I Instagrammed a photo of this right after I bought it, over a copper colour and I said I wasn’t thrilled with it. Obviously that was just a poor choice in colour pairing!
