NOTD: Orly Synchro (Review)

Hi Guys,

I hope you are all doing well. Before I start with today’s post, I just feel the need to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone of you that reads my blog. You have no idea how much joy I derive when I’ve put a post together and you guys read and comment. It’s so encouraging, thank you!

Now on to the business for the day, I recently added a nail polish to my collection(like I need anymore, right?). It’s one from Orly called Synchro and was released with their Electronica Autumn 2012 collection. It’s the second nail polish from Orly that I have, I reviewed my first one, Glided Coral here.

It is a duo-chrome colour which if i’m being honest it is quite hard to describe. It appears rusty red/dark pink/purple with blue shimmer running through it. It reminds me a lot of Sleek’s Amethyst lipstick which might be why I was attracted to it in the first place. It looked really gorgeous in the bottle but when I put it on my nails, I wasn’t so sure. It kind of paled out in comparison to what I expected.

In terms of application, it applied very well without any streaks. I also like the famous rubber grip that makes Orly polishes so popular, it lets you grip the brush properly for easy application. It was opaque enough with two coats but I added a thin third coat, just because.

Overall, I just don’t know with this one. I was a bit disappointed but it is growing on me, it is looking better with time. One thing I like about it though is that it is very unlike anything I have, I do tend to buy similar shades of nail polish for reasons best known to me o_O.

So what do you guys think of this colour? Yay or Nay?

Peace and Love,

      Thank you! Sometimes it's just dependent on the polish..Some chip much faster than others, even the really expensive ones. But using a good basecoat before and a topcoat after should help keep your manicure in place for longer 🙂
