Today's Nail of the Day is Orly Rock Solid, a lovely little gem that has been sitting in my untrieds drawer for awhile now!! Rock Solid is from Orly's Mineral FX collection, which came out this past fall. I am not sure why I let this beauty sit untried for a few months. I really love it!
Orly Rock Solid is a gunmetal gray metallic base with small silver glitter and medium sized holographic glitter pieces. The holo glitter is what makes this polish awesome. Now, I have seen some swatches of this polish that don't contain as much holo glitter. I gave my bottle a really good shake before application. I also kind of swirl the brush towards the sides of the bottle before applying some glitter polishes. You know how all of the glitter kind of gets stuck on the sides? If you angle the brush towards the sides while it's still in the bottle, you can pick up some extra pieces of glitter.
blurry holo goodness!
I did three coats of Rock Solid for these pictures, but two was nicely opaque for wearing this polish. The formula was excellent, really nice to apply! It also dried quite quickly, if that's a factor for you. I used top coat in these pictures, and Rock Solid seemed pretty smooth after just one coat of clear top coat.
I am really loving this beautiful polish and can't believe I left it sitting in the lonely untrieds drawer all this time!! Orly Rock Solid and the other Mineral FX polishes are available online at nailsupplies.us.
