I have been loving all of the fun gradient manicures I have been seeing on other beauty blogs, so I grabbed some make-up sponges and decided to give it a shot. I was thinking of a Cartier rolling ring when I picked these colors, but on my nails I am reminded of candy corn more than jewelry It’s a bit more subtle than I had hoped it would be. I think I need more contrast between the colors. Perhaps using a black base? Having said that this particular mani was also a bit photo shy. I think it looked much better in real life!
Numerous coats and a top coat shown (since I sponged them on, and then did some touch-up work I am not sure exactly how many coats are in the final result).
Orly Foil FX is a collection for spring 2010. I don’t associate metallic colors with spring, but hey they are stunning so who cares? Initially I only bought Rage since I love rose gold, and figured that the other two a gold and a silver were a bit boring. A rose gold polish struck me as being more unique. In indoor lighting Rage is pretty, but in sunlight it really comes to life with dazzling sparkle goodness! I had to go back and get the other two as well.
All three of these have a lovely foil finish that really dazzles in the sun! Application was a breeze, and this polish dried quickly.
I was racing to beat incoming rain, so the Shine picture did not benefit from as much sun as the other two colors.
Two coats shown without a top coat.
