Orly Matte FX Pink Flakie Topcoat

hit up a community yard sale today, but didn't find much... basically just got all four of the Indiana Jones movies on dvd. i've been casually looking for them, and $15 for the lot worked for me! we also went to the PX for some makeup... which i then had to bring back to exchange because the blush had been used... a LOT. it was all gross and there was dent in the product where it had been used so much. luckily, they didn't give me any trouble so i'm now the happy owner of a brand new Lancome Shimmer Violet Sunrise :) after lunch we headed over to Tuesday Morning... they had MeMoi leggings for $19.99 (retail $45), i've never tried that brand before, but the leggings are nice and thick so i have high hopes!

today's polish is Pink Flakie Topcoat from the Orly Matte FX collection. it's an opalescent flakie in a super sheer pink base that dries down to a fairly matte finish. i say fairly matte because it's not as matte as it would be if you were to use a true matte topcoat. the flakes aren't hard to work with and you get nice coverage without placing in one coat. this polish is nice for someone who wants a matte-like look without having to mess around with adding an extra polish... but i like it even better when either a matte or a shine topcoat is added!

one coat Pink Flakie Topcoat, pinkie and middle have one coat Seche Vite, all over Orly Matte FX Purple Velvet.

i just love how matte flakies look like stained glass! Ria :)
