Orly Matte FX

This fall Orly is introducing us to two new Matte FX Flakie Top Coats. These come in a pink and green version and can be worn over their Matte FX nail shades (Purple Velvet and Iron Butterfly) for a super matte effect.

These top coats each feature different iridescent glitter colors and dry to a matte finish. So you get kind of a sparkly look but kind of not. Make sense?

Today I’ve got these swatched for you over Purple Velvet. I do also have Iron Butterfly from long ago which you can see swatched here if you are interested.

Orly Purple Velvet

Purple Velvet is a deep purple matte. It does have very tiny multi-colored sparkles inside. It applied easily and only requires two coats. It dries to a nice satin-like matte finish. It’s not chalky or dry looking at all.

Orly Pink Flakie Top Coat over Purple Velvet

Pink Flakie Top Coat has a sheer pink base and multi-colored iridescent flake glitter. This is two coats over Purple Velvet. Love the pastel looking glitter but I prefer it with a shiny top coat, haha!

I just feel like this comes alive with a clear top coat, even though everything is meant to be matte.

Orly Green Flakie Top Coat over Purple Velvet

Green Flakie Top Coat has a sheer green base and has purple, green and blue flake glitter. This is another really pretty one, I prefer it slightly over the pink one. This is two coats over Purple Velvet. But again, I like it shiny better!

Overall: So I liked all three of these shades but I actually prefer wearing the flakie top coat with a shiny top coat over them. I feel like it brings out the sparkle so much more.
