Nails #10

Base Coat and Top Coat | Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Base & Top Coat
Colour | Orly Nail Polish in Velvet Rope

Don’t you just love Fragrance Direct for budget polishes? I could spend so much money on this online store! I purchased this polish some time ago and this is the first time I have got round to using it.

Velvet Rope is a gorgeous deep purple with silver micro glitter (the glitter is a fair bit more noticeable in real life than the photographs above). The glitter feels like a touch of witches magic on my fingertips and I think it’s a great polish for Halloween yet wouldn’t be too obtrusive to wear to work. I found this polish slightly on the runny side so I applied three thin coats for an opaque finish. I think two normal coats would have spilled over onto my nail beds leaving me with a rather messy finish. Application is slightly disappointing but the polish is such a beautiful shade that I think it’s worth that extra application time.
