Orly - Luxe
Welcome to my first post as the proud owner of my own .com!!! That's right no more blogspot for me. Woohoo! I decided that if I really wanted to get serious about blogging that I needed to make that leap. I'm probably way more excited about it than a grown woman should be but I can't help it. I was jumping up and down and all giddy like a school girl that just got asked out by her biggest crush last night. And to start this party off I've got Orly Luxe to share with you. So let's get to the polish, shall we...
Orly released Luxe in the spring of 2010 as part of the Foil Fx collection. The finish on this one is pretty unique. Instead of being all one color, Luxe is made up of tiny gold and silver particles giving more depth to the finished look than your typical gold polish.
Shown here as 2 easy coats plus top coat. Application of Luxe is smooth with even coverage on each coat. And would you look at that, no real brushstrokes! You don't see that very often with a metallic finish.
I like how this looks like real foil on my nails yet there's no texture to it at all. Even before adding the top coat I had smooth nails. I used Luxe for quite a few manicures during the Christmas nail art challenge but the best look at it is in my art-deco attempt while reviewing some nail vinyls.
Even though Orly released this color in 2010 you can still find it in stores. In fact, I saw it at Sally's the other day if you want to add it to your collection. I'd love to hear what your go-to gold polish is in the comments. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
