I love holo and I love berry colors so Candeo Orchid was a winner from the start. Orchid has large, holo hex glitter and smaller, round, rose-gold glitter. It’s all suspended in a fuschia, shimmery, cough-syrupy base. My favorite! You could probably get this polish opaque with several coats, but I chose instead to layer it over a similar color. This mani is two coats of Orchid over two coats of Sally Hansen Salon Effects Purple Posy. The tinted, shiny, shimmery base of the Orchid intesified the Purple Posy color, giving it almost a neon look under my daylight lamp.
Check out that glitter, isn’t it awesome? My camera almost didn’t know what to do.
I like this polish because it has a lightness about it. Call me crazy, but it’s like I can feel heavy glitter polishes on my nails. But Candeo doesn’t give me that icky-thick-glitter-blanket-feeling. It was easy to get smooth with just one coat of Seche Vite. Love it. Here’s a shot with indirect light.
So does anyone else get that icky-thick-glitter-blanket-feeling? :)
