NOTD: Orly Winter Wonderland

This is one of those rare times when my actual nails correspond to the nails of the day I'm posting. If all had gone according to plan yesterday, this wouldn't have happened, but instead of working from home and thus having two extra hours in my day to play with polish, I had to go into the office because my remote access wasn't working. I eventually got that sorted out but ended up getting home very late and very tired since the sorting out had to be done in addition to my normal work. This mani still looked fine, so I left it be. It's Orly Winter Wonderland from this year's holiday collection.



This one's surprisingly tricky to capture in photographs. I'm not sure what to call this finish; it's similar to a foil in texture but pearly rather than metallic. It looks sort of chunky in the bottle (and in photos) but it's smooth on the nail.



It looks more silvery and sheer in pictures than it does in real life. It is sheer; I'm wearing three coats and can see my nail line in most lighting conditions. Because of that, I'm sure it's going to be great for layering.





I really like this one. It makes me think of snow, clean sparkly new fallen snow.

  2. I am looking for a white. Not a cream white. Maybe this is the one. I really need a polish like this.

  3. I like this one. It looks soft and fem, but the finish is a little bit edgier. :)

  5. Very beautiful! It looks quite pearly and frosty. I like it alone, but I bet it would look get layered over anything :)
