Friday Favourites - Orly Au Champagne

I have all kinds of white nail polish - creme, shimmer, jelly. They're very useful for nail art and layering, but this one, I loved wearing on its own!

I don't like anything that is too chalky white, and I do find some white nail polish tend to be a bit streaky - it's an unforgiving colour I feel. However, Orly Au Champagne is gorgeous to apply and gorgeous to look at. It has a clean, subtle white shimmer, and dries semi-matte. On its own, it looks like clean, powdered snow!

With a coat of gloss over, it looks just a little bit brighter, and pretty in its own way. You can click on any of the photos for a better look at the shimmer. My index finger in the above picture has a little topcoat on the skin which is reflecting in the light. Ugh... Sorry about that.

It looks just as clean and nice under natural lighting. From far away, you can't see the shimmer, but the nail polish still has a softer look to it than you don't see in whites as solid as this one.

What's strange about Au Champagne is that in its bottle, it's actually quite...bleh. It's an off-white, almost beigey colour and looks old. On the nails, it's so much cleaner and whiter. Straaaaaange.

  3. I've been trying to guess whether the post is by you or ev each week, by the words and the pictures but no success so far.

    But this is a nice shimmery white!
