I’M BACK!!! Sorry for the extremely long absence! It has been a week and 2 days since I posted anything, and in that last post I even said “now that finals have started, I can blog more consistently.” Ha, guess that worked! I had every intention this year of blogging throughout all of finals, like I was able to do last semester. I even had a blogging schedule all planned out for myself so I would be able to give you guys something new at least every other day. Well, after my first one, which happened to be intellectual property, I had criminal procedure, constitution law and evidence and didn’t realize just how taxing it would all be. Going into finals, I thought my hardest was going to be my first final, and well my hardest ended up being the second and fourth. So time got away from me to say the least. I took a day off after my last one to get some of my affairs in order, and now I’m ready to post every day. And since I haven’t blogged in so long, I have a lot of manicures and makeup products to show you! And I also have a little bit of a surprise that I’m working on that I’m planning on finishing sometime in the month that I have off, so stay tuned! Anyways, I’m rambling because I’m not used to blogging … Onto the polish!
I picked up Orly “Halo” a while ago and finally have gotten around to trying it. Halo is a neutral gold microglitter with bigger pieces of silver glitter mixed in. The color seriously just shines! I think that the color is neutral enough that it can be worn for any occasion, all year round. Its not in your face, and the color is neutral enough to wear to work, but fun enough to wear on a night out. Whenever I look at this polish I always think of Burl Ives singing “Silver and Gold” in the old claymation Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer!
The formula on this polish was really nice as well! It was completely opaque in 2 coats! I love glitters that are opaque on their own. It did kind of fall into the microglitter trap, where the brush gets a little gloped up and weirdly spread out (know what I mean?). The dry time was really fast, as it is with most microglitters. Another thing about this polish that I’ve noticed with a lot of polishes with a similar formula is that it chips really easily. I had this on for 2 days and on the second day I had huge pieces flaking off. But since I like to change my polish a lot anyways, it was kind of nice to be able to chip it right off instead of dealing with remover. Overall, I really liked it and I think it will get a lot of use in my collection, either as an accent nail or as a full manicure!
What do you guys think? Do any of you have this polish? What is your favorite neutral glitter?
