Colors by Llarowe ~ Rare Orchid



Colors by Llarowe ~ Rare Orchid
Magenta scattered holo

Rare Orchid is from the recent Fall 2015 collection just like Aubergine Dreams and Last Harvest that I showed you earlier.  

The formula is great and the polish is very pigmented. You could get away with one coat if you’re careful. I applied two though, to make sure that Rare Orchid presented herself the best she could. The drying time is good. I applied a layer of topcoat before I took my pictures and that definitely intensified the colour, so I recommend to always use a topcoat when wearing this.

Here’s two coats and a layer of topcoat; picture is taken with flash:


Isn’t that colour just fantastic?


Here’s what it looks like in low lights. I love this colour, it’s beautiful.


I stamped on it. I found a giraffe-ish motif on my new stamping plate from Moyra: 04-Animalistic. I stamped with an old time favourite black: Black from NailNation 3000.

Here’s my final mani: 


I’m impressed by Rare Orchid myself. It’s much prettier in real life than the swatches I’ve seen so far.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Scattered holo
Overall impression: Amazing colour! I can’t help imagining what this colour would be like in a linear holo!
Buy again: Yes

    1. Thank you, I love "open" patterns like this one that doesn't cover up too much of the base colour :)
