Hello my lovelies! How's your week going so far? I'm enjoying my vacation with rest, nail art and reading. I have some fun stuff to show you this week, but first I'm gonna start with a true palate cleanser. It's also a polish that very much resembles snow and we've had quite a lot of that lately.
|Orly Au Champagne, indoors, artificial light|
This pretty comes from the Holiday Soiree collection for winter 2011. I love that Orly designed a color as perfect and delicate as snow. It's a great canvas for any nail art, but can be worn on its own for an elegant look. I thought that this will be more of a pearl finish, but I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that it's almost a shimmer. I prefer a larger shimmer in my polish!
The formula is a dream. You might get away with 2 coats, but I did 3 here because there was a tiny hint of visible nail line. I didn't mind though because it applies like a dream and dries very fast. I'm not very pleased with doing 3 coats of a polish because I'm not a patient person, but this beauty deserves a little sacrifice. The brush strokes are almost invisible, especially after top coat. I think it does require a top coat because it dries to a semi-matte finish.
I'm really glad I got this because it's not something I would usually go for. The raving reviews and gorgeous swatches on a few blogs convinced me. I also have Androgynie from this collection, which I will be trying soon.
So what do you think of white polish? Is it something you would wear or is it just too out there for you?
