Golden Rose Matte Velvet ~ 101
Baby blue with shimmer and a silky finish
Orly ~ Stone Cold
Blue jelly base with blue flaky glitter
This Golden Rose polish was a surprise Christmas gift from my sweet friend Aylin from Posh Nail Art. It’s totally cool to have friends like her!
The formula is good, and the polish glides on easily. This one is not a one coater like its sisters – it takes two easy coats to get a smooth and opaque surface.
This is two coats, no top coat:
Isn’t this just pretty?
Then I put three peaces of striping tape on each nail, and painted over it with Orly’s Stone Cold. It’s from their Mineral FX collection from autumn 2011, a series I have come to like more and more as I get my hands on them. I applied one relatively thick layer of Stone Cold, and removed the stripes of tape right after. I sealed it up with a layer of Catrice Quick Dry & High Shine top coat.
Even though this mani looked really cool in real life, I must admit that I was really sad over how badly it photographed. There’s only going to be one picture out of the bunch, the rest was even worse! :D Here goes:
The blue couple:
I can assure you that it looked really nice in real life, and it was totally worth the effort with the striping tape! :)
