Layered Mani: Orly – Blend & Orly – Pixie Powder

Hi everyone! Today’s manicure started out one way and ended up another way. Two Orly polishes, two different looks.

Orly – Blend & Orly – Pixie Powder

I started today with a polish from the Fall 2014 Smoky Collection from Orly. This is a purple leaning dark taupe creme nail polish. Formula is excellent! This could be a one coater if you’re careful. I did two coats to be safe for the photos. This was so easy and smooth to apply, like butter! It’s a great color and so shiny too! I love it!

Here’s how it looked all on it’s own. Orly Blend, 2 coats plus topcoat.

Then I added just one coat of Orly Pixie Powder to all but my ring finger. This one is from the Fall 2013 Surreal Collection. It has a clear base with what almost looks like purple to gray duo glitters and silver glitter. I don’t know if they are duo’s or just purple. The glitter are all very small and fine. I don’t think this would ever build up to be opaque. I would only wear this one as a glitter topper. If you are  picky about super smoothness, you may need a thick topcoat or two coats of topcoat. I used just one coat and it was fine for me, but it was not as smooth as glass. I love this polish as well! I think this was a fun combination of polishes.

I don’t see Orly polish much anymore. I miss it. I really love the bigger bottles and the rubberized lids.


Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.
