I used to be a bit obsessed with all the different nail polishes. All those out-of-this-world stunning shades and innovative finishes really rocked my world. Of course, I am no way even close to the real nail polish fanatics, but I do have several shades of yellow, for example.
But recently something changed and I’ve been wearing classic colours all the time, think red/berry/plum. I don’t know why, but every time I paint my nails with green or brown, I’m not feeling it. It’s been like this for about two months. Back to the basics?

So here is one more nail polish from Orly Mineral FX collection which is called Rock-It and it is probably my favourite shade.
It is a gorgeous reddish fuchsia , the shade is not very accurate on the photo actually, it is cooler in real life.
The nail polish goes on very smoothly and gives an opaque coverage with two-three coats. The colour is very wearable and would suit pretty much everyone. I also love the fact that it is very dimensional and shimmering but dos not contain chunky glitter.
I love wearing Rock-It and would recommend taking a look at it!I also like the fact that it’s not so hard to remove…
Here is one more shade from the Orly’s Mineral FX collection which is called Stone Cold.
When I first saw in in the bottle it looked like a shimmering blue metallic but I was wrong. On the nails, the shade is much more complex than that.
It is a navy blue with flecks of blue glitter which looks incredibly beautiful, especially in the sun. It gives some texture and a almost a ’3-d effect’ but it is rather smooth on the nails.
I’d say it is a unique shade (at least in my collection) and a must have for those who love blue with special effects!
As for the coverage, it may need three coats to insure that you get a deep and even blue tone. But since I use Seche products it did not take forever to dry. The only thing that I don’t like is that it’s a bit painful to take it off.
Stone Cold a truly gorgeous colour and I’d say that Mineral FX is one of the best collections from Orly up to date…
I have also written about their Rock The World nail lacquer already.
