I guess I really underestimated how much moving could knock me out of my groove. Mostly in a good way, but it has left me a bit disoriented. It has also taken more energy than I had anticipated getting settled and getting back to doing normal things like blogging. Anyway, Milani’s Orchidia is an orchid purple with a subtle silver shimmer. Yikes! I did not do a post manicure clean-up with nail polish remover, and it really shows in the picture. I hope you will forgive my mess, as I previously mentioned I am totally not in my normal groove! Orchidia is a pretty purple, and a nice beauty fix at a great price. I think I paid $3.49 at Fred Meyer.
Application was very good, but slightly sheer. Three coats and a top coat shown.
Pink Out Loud is a bright pink jelly/shimmer base with glass flecks. My eye sees the color as being a bit more blue shifted than the pics show (this was a very bright color, so it was hard to get accurate pictures). I wrestled with Photoshop, but it did not agree! LOL
Application was ok. This polish was a bit thick, but still fairly easy to control. It goes on fairly sheer, and even with three coats I had some visible nail lines. I did note that it has a pretty strong smell. Yuck! Still, not bad for only $3.29!
