Orly ~ Velvet Rope

Orly ~ Velvet Rope
Purple with silver glitter

This is possibly the prettiest purple I’ve got. It’s deep and beautiful, and as with most of my Orlys, the formula is a dream.

Here it is, two coats, no top coat:

It dried up a little bit matte, and I must say that even though I usually love glitter, the little silver glitters in this polish didn’t do anything for me. The polish even dried up a bit gritty because of them. So even though I’m usually like ‘the more glitter the better’, it wasn’t like that in this case.

But I moved right on along, because I had stamping in mind. And this time I wanted to try an all nail design for the first time. I chose Bundlemonster’s BM20, and Konad’s silver stamping polish, even though it hasn’t impressed me so far. In fact it does look a little bit better in the picture than it actually did in real life! :D

Here’s the result:

It wasn’t easy at all, but I’ve learned that the only thing that makes good is practice, so I’m not giving up!

Merry Christmas, everybody. I hope you have a great one! ♥
