Darkest Shadow* is from Orly’s Smoky collection. There are six shades in total, with bold saturated colours inspired by the shades of the smokiest eyes coupled with dusty tones. Darkest Shadow wins hands down without a doubt. It’s an oil slicked black with a burgundy shimmer that sometimes looks orange, brown or ruby red as the light catches it.
A rubber based lid makes it easy to grip and apply the polish neatly and of course, Orly is nail lacquer friendly with being free of DPB, Toluene and Formaldehyde. With speckles of glitter, it’s also surprisingly easy to remove as normally glitter-based polishes are a nuisance.
Darkest Shadow costs £10.50 and is available from www.graftonsbeauty.co.uk.
I must sound like a broken record when I bang on about how brilliant Bourjois’s 1 Seconde polishes are but they really are. Superior quality, fool-proof application and super quick (not quite one second per nail, mind).
New from Bourjois for November are two new additions to the range: the dark Grey To Meet You* with the foil-like Glitterizer*. The combination has received a lot of attention and earned me quite a few compliments. Glitterizer has this shattered mirror appearance yet you can still appreciate the shade of Grey To Meet You, which is a dark blue-ish grey that’s bang on trend with this season’s must-wear shade.
These two are out in November in the usual haunts, priced at £5.99 each.
