Orly "Lunar Eclipse"

March 20:

There are some polishes that I pick up and put down constantly and eventually end up buying. There are polishes I think would look horrible on me but buy because they look nice and end up loving them. There are polishes I buy for names, collections, colors, etc. I could list reasons why I buy polish forever. Yet there are sometimes I don't buy polish. It may not be my color, or too expensive. In the case of "Lunar Eclipse" I really had no excuse. I saw it sitting on clearance at Sally's and yet I didn't buy it. Oh how I kicked myself for months. Well at the end of my last week of school, right before finals, I gave in and bought LE online.

It showed up and immediately went on my nails, making me realize even more how silly I was for leaving LE on the shelf at Sally's. Well it is mine now and I am so glad it is!

This is a stuning royal blue with a purple duochrome and that really fun foil fx effect that Orly used for their Fall 2010 line. In person this color is even more gorgeous, the duochrome is really hard to capture and the polish just seems to glow. It was perfect in three coats and lasted without chipping for three days. I cannot believe how beautiful this polish is. Definitely one of my top favorites. I think it is the foily fx version of China Glaze's "Frostbite" another one of my all time favorites.

I am so close to getting my first giveaway going, just two followers away! As so as I reach the 50 follower mark I'll post the giveaway. Thank you everyone who is following me already :D

Until next time,
Happy painting!
