Orly Androgynie

Hello ladies!

Today I´ve got another polish from the Holiday Soiree collection by Orly. This is the one most people are looking forward to the most. And I must admit I was pretty excited about this one too. Then the bottle came and I wasn´t disappointed at all. It looked so amazing!

Look at all the big glitter in there! And the nice small gold glitter.

Well, I´m afraid that I did get disappointed when I applied it... The amount of glitter just doesn´t get onto the nail. No matter how hard I shook it. In close up you do see the glitter, the gold that is and a very few of the big glitter. But definitely not as much as you would expect from looking at the bottle. And I had the same experience as I have had with other black with glitter I used to own: from a distance it just looks like a plain black... Why oh why?! I was just so hopeful on this one.

Application wasn´t that easy either, opacity is fine though. 2 coats was enough. Maybe a third would have prevented it from tipwear in less than 16 hours...

Here you can see it for yourself.

So, what do you think? Still worth getting or are you gonna pass on this one?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I was going to add this to my wish list until I read your experience with it. It is a shame that the glitter doesn't come out that well. Because it looks so great in the bottle. But you are right, it needs more glitter on the nail. Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. its gorgeous in the bottle but the glitter really does get smothered once on the nail :(

  3. I really like it :) It's a very unique color!

  4. Awww, that is so disappointing! Oh well, thanks for saving me the money I would have spent on it.

  5. @ all
    Yes, it really is a shame it didn´t turn out to be more awesome. Maybe next time I´ll just use 1 coat on top of a regular black, maybe that will turn out better.
