Orly Color Blast - Granite (Luxe Shimmer)

 



Last photo in the sun, all others in the indoor lighting.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (2-3 minutes a coat). The brush is medium sized and good. It is a black based polish with silver and holo glitters. It is slightly textured but not too much and doesn't catch on anything. I took the last photo in the sunshine at a pond that I visit most days. I love ponds and all the wildlife and creatures that live in and around ponds. Anyway this lasted well too.

  7. It's good it comes off after a minute of soaking! it looks like it would be really stubborn to remove, although so very pretty! :)

    Hope your week is going well :)
