Orly ~ Scenic Route

Orly ~ Scenic Route
Neon lilac crème

Scenic Route is the last of my picks from the Pacific Coast Highway collection from summer 2016. I already showed you Life’s a Beach, Paradise Cove and Road Trippin’. Click on the names to be taken to each post. 

Crème polishes are not my favourites, as you may (or may not) know, but every collector needs a little bit of everything in my opinion. And Scenic Route has got a really nice colour.

I used two coats for my mani and the drying time between the coats was good.

This is two coats and no topcoat:

Isn’t that just a nice colour? I like it.

I stamped little dragonflies on it. It’s from stamping plate BP-74. It’s the first stamping plate I’ve had that was picky about which stamper it liked. I tried both my clear stampers but none of them would pick up the motif. I had to go back to my old faithful standard stamper that I bought on ebay for a couple of dollars a long time ago. That one is not a clear one though so I might check the market for a more flexible clear stamper for stamping plates like this one. Anyway, I stamped with Colour Alike’s “B. an Aurora”.

This is the final mani including a layer of topcoat:

I love dragonflies and I dig the colour combo here a lot.

I’m so happy with my four picks from this collection!
