Orly has released a collection of metallic matte polishes called Metal Chic. These are all metallic, matte and yet still packed with glitter and shimmer.
The formula on these was fabulous. It took just two coats to get them opaque, they applied evenly and smooth and dried quickly. I’ll wager they look amazing with a top coat on also, but I haven’t yet tried that. Check them out below.
Solid Gold is a burnt gold color filled with orange, green and gold shimmer. I really like this one, I think it’s really unique looking and flattering on me.
Glam Rock is a copper/bronze color with lots of orange and gold shimmer. Also really pretty, but I don’t think it suits me as much as Solid Gold does.
Iron Butterfly (reminds me of the band Iron Butterfly who famously sang “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” which was supposed to be “In The Garden Of Eden”, but they were drunk when they recorded it, so it wound up being slurred. I digress…) is a black color with silver shimmer. I love it, it’s my favorite of these. It is unique to other black mattes I already own, which makes it even more special.
Overall I think this is a fabulous little collection, and definitely worth owning if you like mattes.
You can find these online at e-tailers already.
Time to parrrrrtayyyyyy!
I hope whatever you find yourself doing tonight, it’s enjoyable! Have fun and be safe! See you in 2010!
