|Two (2) Coats of Orly Mirror Mirror, One (1) Coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat
Orly Mirror Mirror is one of my favorite nail polishes. Grey may not be everyone’s choice of color to wear on their nails, but considering 75% of my wardrobe is gray, it suits me quite well. Even though it may seem like a winter shade, I remember wearing it all through this past summer. Mirror Mirror is a creme formula grey polish with a pale blue undertone. On the nails, it looks like a true to life grey, and then in certain lighting it looks like a neutral, pale blue.
The formula of Mirror Mirror is pretty nice. It’s a little thick, but it dries fairly quick and it is extremely opaque. Two coats is more than enough.
