Orly Perfect Pairs: 3: Brown

Good evening my lovelies!

Tonight I am continuing with my Orly Perfect Pairs posts. This one was a real hardship for me... I have never worn a proper brown nail varnish and was not in a desperate hurry to.

However whilst I am not converted and it is unlikely you will see brown feature as a main colour again anytime soon I did enjoy wearing this temporarily and could not help but think... Sweet Like Chocloate!

These two pictures show you the finished Perfect Pair look...

Below is the first (and probably last) swatch of brown polish you will see on this blog. However if I had to feature brown I am glad it was this one... Orly Rapture. Rapture is from the 2012 collection Fired Up and is a dark brown creme finish polish. Below shows two coats, no top coat, picture taken inside.

On the other hand is Orly So Go-Diva from the Glam FX collection. So Go-Diva is a thick clear base containing large and medium chocolate brown glitters. The below picture shows one coat with no top coat.

A side by side shot showing the two individual polishes...

Once the two polishes were layered together I honestly liked them a lot more than I thought I would and coupled with the fact that I got a rare glimpse of some winter sun and a snowy backdrop this Perfect pair actually won me over!

Remember when I said I could not help but think of Sweet like chocolate... left over Christmas chocolates made the perfect prop for this fun little picture.

Do you like brown? Until now I did not have a single brown in my collection but I did buy Rapture after doing this post as I felt like I should add at least one.

Would you wear this brown and glitter combo?

  1. A very well-timed post, since I've been looking for brown polishes! Those are really lovely, especially both together.

    I like deep chocolately brown polishes (I think this puts me in a minority!), although I don't really know why. Maybe it's because they make me think of chocolate!

  2. I like this! I need more orly in my life

  3. What a fun post! I think browns/neutrals can be so chic, but sometimes it's hard to find one that compliments your skintone!
