Orly Solid Gold Pianos





This color is gorgeous, a dark matte gold shimmer...but the wear is horrible, chips on most nails after 1 day. I know matte's are not everyone's style but I personally love them. I love the satin feel and look on my nails!
I also love making the glass beads I make with a matte finish. This involves acid etching the bead to remove the top layer of glass to give it a frosted finish.....thank goodness they don't use this procedure for our poor nails!
This was 2 coats with Warm Black Konad, no top coat (maybe which is why it chipped so quickly).
