Orly - Royal Velvet

Heya darlings! How are you doing? I'll be short today, I don't have much time. Here is another duochrome beauty, it was a gift from my BF, he's awesome like that. And since it was one of my big wishes of this year I'm totally happy it didn't disappoint. Orly Royal Velvet, the stunner from Orly Precious Collection for Spring 2011. Also a dupe for SpaRitual Health & Wealth and Happiness, but I prefer Orly's brush ten times more over SpaRitual one.

 Aaah, see the duochrome play? It looks too subtle here, but it's still cool.

 Direct sunlight usually brings out the blue of Royal Velvet, unless ...

 ... you turn your fingers like this and all the purple beauty comes out!

 Weird finger angle to show you the duochrome play more clearly.

The book I'm currently reading helped with this one, plus you can see again the duochrome sheen here. The book I'm reading is Nesmrtnost (Immortality) by Milan Kundera and I simply love it. I love how I finally have more time to read. Noone can take away at least 40 minutes a day of reading from me,when I'm sitting on the bus or just having a cup of coffee alone (yes, I'm one of those weirdos). I started my "more time to read" season with Kundera since he's one of my favourite authors ever. I do recommend his works, if you like to read. 

I love Royal Velvet, the duochrome play is fantastic, I love the colours they combined. First time I wore it I did three coats, the third a bit thicker and it bubbled, so this time I changed the tactics and did very thin coats, resulting in four coats and no bubbling! I think this baby is well worth it. 

Did you get any colours from Precious collection? Is Orly a brand you like in general?

Thank you for reading!


  1. I love Orly polishes (for their colors, for their quality and for the bottle, it's 18 ml :) ), but I don't have any color from this collection

  2. Ahhh, another one that's in my WL!

  3. Lep! Pa čestitke ob vpisu v zadnji letnik. :)

  4. @ Zebra-nails, I love them too, their formula just never disappoints, and their colours are awesome.

    @ Sabbatha, yes, I think so too. :D

    @ romipo, hey, welcome to my blog. :) And it is, although I like it more for the purple flash. ;)

    @ Smaltoitaliano, I do recommend getting it off the WL!;)

    @ Kaneli, hvala! :)

    @ greeneyespinknails, yes, it is, I actually find it unique.

    @ Maestra, ane? Redkokdaj v tako kratkem času dvakrat nanesem isti lak, ampak tale kar kliče po tem, da ga nosim. :)

    Hvala za komentarje! Thank you for the comments!
