Orly Matte FX Purple Velvet

nothing too exciting to report today! spent the whole morning at the barn (not unusual!) checking on Aramis with the help of one of my friends... sadly, he's still a little lame. hopefully the injections he got will kick in soon! rode Bodie who was super good, i hope that sweet boy find a home soon :)

today's polish is Orly Matte FX Purple Velvet. it's a plummy purple that dries to that rubbery, satin finish... not really 'matte' in my opinion! it has a subtle white shimmer shot all through which really comes out when topcoat is added. it was amazingly easy to work with, some people could use it as a one coater. i needed the two to cover up one or two very slight patchy areas... perfection. my only complaint is that it takes forever to dry... and you can't use a topcoat or you'll ruin the finish. this being said, it's beautiful with topcoat, so two polishes in one!

two coats Purple Velvet, pinkie and middle fingers one coat Seche Vite.

check back tomorrow to see this polish topped with the Orly Matte FX Pink Flakie Topcoat! Ria :)


i'd love to hear from you guys! let me know if you have any questions or advice :)
