Day 8 - Metallic Nails; Orly - Rage

Day 8 - Metallic Nails
Orly - Rage

The challenge for today was metallic nails. Rage is from Orly's Foil FX collection. It is a rose gold metallic foil. I've had it for quite some time now and I constantly find myself returning to this polish.

Like most Orly's I have dealt with it only requires 2 coats, and you could probably get away with one if you wanted a semi-sheer polish.

Then I added some black dots using Sinful Color's Black on Black. It was the first time I ever used a dotting tool. Such a noob. It took me a while to get used to the technique and amount of polish to use.


This polish is definitely one of my favorite metallics. The only con I would have to say is, what I like to call, Edward Cullen hands. When removing the polish it leaves this glittery residue all over the tips of your fingers. It's so annoying. It comes off after washing your hands a few times and wiping your fingers clean with acetone, but I still wish that didn't happen. Rather than magnetic polish they should make magnetic nail polish remover that picks up all the left over glitter particles from your fingers. That'd be great. Someone get on that. (And don't tell me glitter particles don't have magnetic attraction. As Tim Gunn would say, "Make it work.")

As always be sure to check out what the other girls did for today's challenge! Follow us on twitter too!
Has anyone else tried polishes from the FX collection? 


  1. I think I'm gonna have to add that polish to my wish list if it's still available!

  2. I agree with Nicole, you ladies are making me go bankrupt with your posts, lol! And I agree with the magnetic nails polish remover, so necessary.

  3. @Nicole - It should be! They still sell it at Sally's. I want to get the others from the collection, one is called Luxe and I forget the other one.

    @Adri - wouldn't that be amazing. ugh someone needs to invent that.

  4. This is such a pretty polish! Love the dots too.

    LOL @ magnetic nail polish remover. That would really make life easier.
