Orly Au Champagne

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.

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?

  1. Ohh it is very pretty! I passed on it when the collection came out but recently picked it up since I had coupons and sale pricing. Your pictures are making me glad I decided to grab it.

  2. This looks so beautiful on you Mihaela!! I picked this one up a while ago just because it's a really pretty white and I figured I can use it for nail art. I hope it looks as nice on my skin tone.

  3. Well, on your nails it looks very pretty, but I don't know if I would like it on mine too...I love wearing white polishes, but the finish of this doesn't really convince me :/

    1. I'm sorry. Hope my swatches don't have anything to do with that.
