Rainbows on my tips

Pin It


Today, I have the most awesome polish to share with you. It's called Orly Sunglasses at Night and here's the reason why!

It looks as if the rainbows have settled on my fingernails. Sunglasses at Night is holographic bar glitter in a very sheer navy blue base. I used three coats here. These bar glitters are not thick and in your face. They are quite thin, like strings.

  It didn't seem as I if would get it opaque even with four coats of the polish, so I layered it over Colorbar Pro Phantom, a deep dark shimmering blue.  

 Interestingly, the polish also contains micro black matte glitter as you can see in this photograph. It is slightly gritty but not irritatingly so. The glitter is holographic, not in your face. But, oh lord, is it MESMERISING!

I just could not take my eyes off the magic going on, on my fingertips. The photographs has just not been able to do justice to the beauty of this polish. So, I decided to make a video. My first amateurish attempt, so please excuse the flaws and just check out the polish :)

I need to try it on another colour base to see if it has more potential. But I do love, love, love the way it already is. What about you? Don't forget to leave a comment. And please do check out other nail art fanatics from the Indian Lacquer Lovers group on Facebook.

  1. Haha, looks like a disco party on your nails. I still don't know what I think about bar glitter. There's something untidy looking about it in general but I love the video you did and the way it sparkles on your nails!

    1. I was sceptical about bar glitters, too. But this one is not as unwieldy as the others :)

  2. Very cute. I'm not much of a fan of these types of glitter on me, but they always look so pretty for everyone else :D

  3. oh goodness..one has to really wear sunglasses to see this one in sun :))..lovely polish

  4. love the polish on your nails :)
