Orly Frenemy TX

the past two days have just been totally gross! pouring rain and cold... BUT, at least it wasn't snow :) i had a lesson yesterday, and just exercised in the indoor arena today. i'm really going to miss riding outside, but we're hitting that part of the year in Maryland where riding outdoors just isn't going to happen often. super happy to have the indoor, though... without it some days i wouldn't be able to ride at all!

got Orly Frenemy TX to share with you all today... it's a glitter i snagged at TJ Maxx! it's made up of loads of holographic microglitter pieces and sparse flakies, set into a sheer black base. you could probably get it opaque on its own, but i like to put two coats over a black creme base... for this mani i used Salon Perfect Oil Slick (press sample). i was pretty bummed that the glitters didn't show up more, and only one or two pieces of flakie are visible. it definitely requires a high shine topcoat to bring out as much sparkle as possible!

two coats Frenemy TX over Salon Perfect Oil Slick, finished with one coat Salon Perfect Crystal Clear Top Coat.




it's supposed to be sunny tomorrow... i'm SO excited!! Ria :)
