Hello gentle readers.
I was so excited to get my hands on the polish that I am about to show to you. The promo bottle pictures were so promising. Sadly, the polish in real life didn't live up to expectation. *sigh*
Orly Synchro is an orange jelly base with pink and blue duochrome shimmer. I applied three coats on my pinkie and ring and one coat over black on my middle and index. How incredibly disappointing. That polish went onto my nails and pretty much died on impact. It was brushstroke-y and dull, it lost that beautiful duochrome flash and dance over black and that stuff didn't want to dry. It refused to dry. Blech.
I don't meet many Orly polishes that I don't like but I don't think that I like this. I am not quite ready to give up on it, yet. I want to try a thin coat over pink and over orange to see what it looks like and see if Seche Vite will help it dry enough to make it wearable. This polish is almost there, it is almost fabulous. It looks as if they cheaped out on the shimmer a bit, bought some that was a bit too coarse, didn't add enough... I don't know. It's just such a bummer.
See what I mean? It's almost there, it is close but it doesn't go all the way. Don't polish companies test these polishes?
So, what say you about Orly Synchro? Did you pick up a bottle? Have you tried it? Did you have a better experience than I did or did it leave you flat, too? I'd like to hear what you have to say about this one.
Thank you for popping in and reading and getting an eyeful of this stuff. Have a superior day and may your polish never bubble.
