Picture Polish ~ Orbit



Picture Polish ~ Orbit
Purple toned blue with tons of silver microglitter

Here’s yet another pretty Picture Polish, namely Orbit. I got this from my friend Stinna for my birthday.

Orbit’s formula is thick, but manageable. The brush was a little bit wonky which made it a bit difficult to apply the polish neatly, but I was satisfied with how I did. The polish covers really well – I made one coat and was actually satisfied. I gave it a second coat to see if it made a difference, but it didn’t. Drying time is really fast, by the way. I love that! There’s one layer of Catrice “Quick Dry & High Shine” top coat on to make it shine even more!

No more words, just enjoy the prettiness:


And again: 


I stamped on this, because I wanted to try my new Kiko polishes. I bought a bunch from their Mirror collection because I heard they should be great for stamping. I wanted to test that myself. I used stamping plate GA34 from Gals Fairy set of plates. I stamped with Kiko 618, Orchid Pink.

And man, does that work! I am totally blown away over how well that stamps!

Let me show you:


And another shot, to convince you: 


How about that? Is that amazing or what?

I have to say that I am not utterly pleased with my Fairy set of stamping plates. I have to double stamp my thumb, which is ridiculous, because as you can see, I don’t even have long nails! It’s the same problem with the Princess set, so I’m not totally convinced that I’ll keep them, but we’ll see.

Anyway, here’s the pretty couple of polishes:


Have you tried Kiko’s Mirror collection for stamping? If yes, did it work out just as good for you?


Opacity: 10/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Durability: 8/10
Value for money: 8/10
Overall: 8.5/10
Buy again: Yes
