Orly - Walk Down the Aisle

Another polish I picked up from Orly on Hautelook.
Shame on me for not researching swatch pictures online before ordering... I thought this would be a really pretty, shimmery, sky blue. And it's not! I opened the box and said "this one is green?!"

On my thumb I tried to layer as many coats as I could to see it's opacity capabilities....
This is 4 coats and you can see that the icy shimmer just stacks up but never becomes fully opaque.

For a full swatch I wanted to layer it over a sky blue to get what I originally thought it would be.
This is 3 coats of Orly Walk Down the Aisle over 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta Dri Blue-Away.

You can see the pinky is just Sally Hansen Blue Away so you can compare to the shimmer topper of Walk Down the Aisle.
Pretty, but definitely not what I had anticipated!

  1. Love the layering! I hate it when a color doesn't come as expected, too. But, you still ended up with something really pretty!

  3. It's no cool when you expect a nail polish with more opacity and you'll have this. Kisses

  4. I just bought this recently since it was on sale and you can see in the bottle that it's going to be really watery and thin. Small wonder they had them at just 4€. But I did pick it up anyway because I do like having some sheer polishes for some layering and this looks really nice when you put it on top of blues and greens. It gives it a little something on top. I really like it with the blue you paired it up with.
