Orly Decoded

ran errands today... but didn't get done stuff for my trip... that'll be next week! i went to Sally's to get the Orly Electronica collection (which i got!) and completely forgot to pick up more acetone. so, i guess i'll be heading back there soon! Target has a bunch of stuff on clearance, if you like their clothes, you should go check it out :)

from the Orly Electronica collection we have Decoded, today's polish! it's a dark greY creme with a fantastic formula... i only needed one coat for full opacity! i really love the color, it's such deep, saturated greY... much darker than most of the ones i have in my stash. the polish did want to back off the tips, i definitely should have wrapped them... but, i'm really terrible at that! i made the mistake of trying to 'fix' it after the Seche Vite made it back off even more... you can see in the photo where i added polish and then went over again the whole nail again with top coat. i thought the Seche Vite would blend the added polish better... but it didn't! if you're going to add polish, absolutely do it before adding any top coat! on my ring nail i had added a little more polish while doing the other nails because of a slight bare patch at the base of the nail... that nail didn't back off the tip at all. that is the only reason to add another coat, coverage at one coat is perfect!

one coat Orly Nailtrition, one coat Decoded, two coats Seche Vite.

i had a hard time deciding which polish to choose from this collection... but since greY is my favorite color, i decided on Decoded!  i think i'm going to go ahead and do this collection over the next few, it's three more polishes, so we'll finish up on Tuesday! Ria :)
