Sally Hansen's Celeb City and Orly Luxe

Morning Folks!
We're almost through the week here, which means I am almost done my job! My last day is tomorrow and I'm really excited to be done. Anything exciting coming up for any of you?

Today I am showing you my favourite silver and gold foil polishes. I find that I tend to use these a lot in nail art or as bases when doing nail art, so I thought it was time to show them some love on their own.

First up is Orly's Luxe.

This was part of Orly's 2010 Foil FX collection. The polish is 3 free and went on really smoothly for me and didn't show brush strokes! The colour is really close too a true gold, but I think there are silver particles running through it which keeps the polish from getting too yellow.

I love this foil. It is so shiny. This only required 2 coats for full opacity and is for sure a get noticed type of polish. I have no top coat on in these photos. Also don't you love the name? Luxe just sounds so luxurious!

My favourite silver foil is Sally Hansen's Celeb City from the Xtreme Wear line.

I got this polish over a year ago before I found my insane love for polish and nail art. This was just when Black Shatter had come out and I managed to snag myself a bottle, because let's be honest, Shatter was the coolest thing anyone had ever seen. Then I needed something to put under it. I thought I didn't have anything in my about 35 bottle collection that would look right with it. So I found this and used it under my then precious Black Shatter. The night I happened to use it was a girls night and I got so many compliments on my Shatter and Silver nails. Ever since I have been in love with Celeb City and have used over half the bottle in a year.

The formula on this polish is awesome. It can be almost opaque in one coat, which is mad fantastic for a foil. I used 2 coats just to even everything out. It is so shiny I have no topcoat on in these photos and if you add a topcoat it can get even more glistening.

Thank goodness this polish is part of the perm collection because I think I am going to need bottle after bottle of it.

Do you have a favourite gold or silver polish that you keep going back to? Do you own these and madly love them like me?

Sincerely Stephanie

    1. Awesome! I usually am not a huge fan of gold either, I find silver looks better against my skin tone, but this one is awesome! I'm glad you like it and now want it! :D

    1. Thanks Kate! I think I am more drawn to the silver on myself too if I was to compare them, but both are needed in a collection lol ;)

  8. I feel the same way about Sally Hansen Celeb City. I love how shimmery silver it is... I once did a zebra print over it and it was one of my funnest manicures to date I think...
    Despite the fact that this is permanent collection, you would find two bottles of Celeb City in my helmer... just in case ;)
