Weekly Nail - The Dainty Squid

Supplies used...
Orly Solid Gold
Sally Hansen Barely Blue Bell
Seche Vite as a top coat
Nail stickers (blogged about here // bought from here)

I'm pretty sure I've found a new favorite polish, at least for now, Orly Solid Gold. I bought it after seeing it on some nail blog. I had seen Orly colors in person at Sally's Beauty Supply but their bottles clearly don't do them justice. This is the most beautiful gold polish. Even better than that it only takes one coat to cover nearly any color. I was able to put it over a dark brown polish with no problems and only one coat. Color me impressed! I'm definitely going to be checking out more Orly colors now.
Hope you're having a fabulous Sunday!
xoxo

  7. That is such a great color combination! I agree that the Orly bottles are kind of unattractive... I'll definitely give them a try in the future though.

  8. This is breathtakingly stunning! I need to check out some Orly nail polish too. I don't think I've ever seen them in a shop here nearby so I probably have to search on the internet. No problem though, I mean.. Pretty colour and you need only one coat? Impressive!

  13. Cute design! Out of curiosity, how did the gold polish hold up? I tried a few, but they always chip with in a matter of hours.

  20. I love the color combinations that you make. :) I don't own a ton of Orly's but my absolute favorite color that I own is called "Space Cadet". It is a multi-chrome that changes between purple, olive green, gold, pink, etc. It's so much fun and interesting!

  21. Very cool! They have a pretty sweet mod vibe. I really wish I had your patience when it comes to painting my nails. I never seem to be able to sit still long enough for them to dry properly!
