Cold hands, warm heart

I’ve got so many nail varnishes I could probably sink a battleship, but I still find room for more because they just keep coming out with these fab colours! This is one colour that caught my eye and is right up my street – a teal blue colour that pretty much goes with anything. I was an Orly virgin until I tried this, but I’ve seen them out and about all over the place of late. At around £5.95 for a bottle they’re good value as you get a pretty huge pot, plus the rubber handle makes it easy to get to grips with applying speedily.

The nail varnish is quite runny and watery when you apply the first coat  which didn’t fill me with oodles of confidence. You can see from the picture above how it applies after one coat – quite streaky and patchy – but once you apply the second this kind of comes in handy. Because the polish isn’t thick or gloopy you can get a good colour result without your nails being as thick as a false one. The colour was smooth and shiny and the thin brush means you can get a pretty accurate result – I actually got told by a nail technician that I could paint nails properly when she saw these nails, so it must be good! It lasts for a couple of days without chipping too badly, but to be honest this is never a measure for me as I can easily chip a nail after five minutes.Overall, my cold nails looked pretty hot!

    This colour looks great on you, and it is quite a nice spring time shade too. I haven't tried any Orly polishes yet, I think they're ones I will need to explore this year.

    I've got a few to try over the coming weeks but overall I'm impressed so far. The top coat is pretty good too – giving that a whirl at the mo!
