ORLY Rock Solid

So ORLY (which I still don't know how to pronounce.  Is it O-really like the Internet meme or is it Or-Lee like I've heard some people say) came out with a new line of FX polishes - Mineral FX.  I saw these at Cosmoprof North America but forgot to photograph them (go figure).  I tried setting up an appointment to talk to the company, but they were booked and I missed out on finding out what was what.  I originally LOVED Rock Solid, and kept thinking how it would be mine - a charcoal grey with holographic glitter?  Yes please.


I used a base coat of Seche Natural, 2 coats of polish and a top of Seche Vite.  This polish does dry gritty, so you may want to add 2 coats of top coat.


Unfortunately for me, this polish does NOT look as amazing on the nail as it does in the bottle.  The glitter really gets lost in the polish which is not what I was hoping for.


In the shade, the glitter pretty much gets lost completely.  I kept thinking my nails looked like concrete.


Finally indoors with the flash - you can see loads of glitter in the bottle but not as much on my nails.


I was super disappointed by this polish - so much that I seriously considered taking it back to the store and I've never done that before.  This line is more expensive than normal ORLY colors and I just wasn't happy with it.  I ended up putting it back on my shelf - maybe one day I can find some love for it.  


You can purchase Orly for $7.50 through their website, or it's available online at Head2ToeBeauty for $10 and in Sally's Beauty Supply stores for $8.99.  Additionally, you can Like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.

  4. I'm pretty sure it's Or-lee (Orly is a place in France, so that's what I've always based my pronunciation on).
