I received Orly Angel Eyes nail polish a while ago from Orly Romania together with Miss Conduct nail polish (review & swatches) and I’ve been wearing it in two different occasions. Both nail polishes come from Orly Holiday 2012 Naughty or Nice Collection (info & promo photos) which is already available. First I tested Angel Eyes simply in 3 coats and then I was curious to see how it will look layered over a black nail polish and I must admit I prefer more the second option.
Now @rowe.ro, keiko.ro and at Keiko Slim Spa Salons in Bucharest
Orly Angel Eyes (18 ml/ 0.6 fl oz – 45.00 Lei) is a blue glitter mixed with large holographic flakes in pink, yellow and light green colors. It looks so very sheer in one coat with only some blue glitter but without the flakes so try layering a good three coats if you want to get some opacity. Only after the second layer of polish I could manage to catch some of the glitter flakes and when I finally layered the third coat I could get a nice uniform finish. The formula is not thick or watery is jelly so I advise you to wait a couple of minutes between coats so the polish can dry a little and like this it will be easy to get an uniform color. I find it very hard to pick up those flakes so you should definitely build-up a few coats to make them appear.
I also decided to have it layered on top of a black nail polish so I applied two layers of Angel Eyes over one layer of black polish. The result was incredible for me because the polish looked so much better, the black polish really made those colored flakes to pop and the polish was so glowing. You can also choose to layer it over a blue nail polish or white base but I prefer to wear it like this over black.
I have some before and after 5 days photos for you just to see how long lasting this color really is. I worn Orly Angel Eyes with top coat on 5 of my nails while the other 5 received no protection. The color is noticeable not so shiny and sparkling after a few days and looks a little bit more sheer. I had minor tip wear without chipping but because this polish is more of a blue glitter the minor tip wear is barely visible. On the nails were I haven’t worn a top coat the polish looks even sheerer and more mattified. I had better results while I had Angel Eyes layered on top of black polish so my advice is to wear this color over a colored nail polish base.
