Orly ~ Rock-it

Orly ~ Rock-it
Extremely shimmery red glass fleck with a golden duochrome

Rock-it is from Orly’s Mineral FX collection from autumn 2011. The Orly brand usually never lets me down and this is definitely no exception to that rule. The polish is gorgeous, the formula is great and the beauty transfers perfectly from the bottle and onto the nail.

I’m not usually into golden colours, but this polish is so incredibly shimmery that I decided that I could easily live with the golden duochrome.

I applied two coats. One coat would have been enough, but the brush gave me a bit of a struggle, so I needed the second to even out the surface. I don’t know what it is with the brush of this bottle, but it seems much thinner than the other Orly polishes I’ve got, and that made the polish a bit more difficult to apply.

I believe this first picture is without topcoat. I was a little indecisive whether I should “moderate” the mani, so I took the first pictures without the topcoat.

I decided to leave this mani as it was, so here’s a pic of it with a layer of Seche Vite top coat on it.

To be honest I can’t tell the difference, which is fairly unusual. The polish itself is so shimmery and has such depth that it doesn’t need a topcoat to show all its beauty.

Opacity: 10/10
Colour, prettiness: 10/10
Durability: 9/10
Value for money: 9/10
Overall: 9.5/10
Buy again: Yes
