Orly Precious Collection Spring 2011: Royal Velvet

Orly Royal Velvet (2 coats)

I must admit, I am a bit disappointed with my photography on Royal Velvet. I can promise you that it is indeed a duochrome, despite it just looking like a blue shimmer in the pics above. If you look at the edges of the polish you can sort of see the purple in it. The application was slightly thin, but that seems to be pretty normal for Orly polishes. It was also fairly opaque, needing only 2 coats. I showed you Ancient Jade from the Precious collection a few months ago, and I think Royal Velvet is the only other standout of the collection. Fortunately, I recently saw a preview of upcoming collections from Orly on the Body and Soul blog and they look pretty awesome.

That colour looks lovely on you.

Royal Velvet is a bear to photograph. I took ninety-something shots of that polish in different lighting to try to capture the gorgeous it is in person and I just couldn't do it justice.

I can't wait to see the new Orly collections. Love Orly! :D
