Milani - Orchidia

Hello everyone! Here's a quick post. I've been super busy for the last week or so, but for an excellent reason: my brother is leaving Saturday to go teach English in Japan! We just got the news last week so it's been a whirlwind of activity. I'm so proud of him. Needless to say, I haven't had much time for polish.

I picked up Orchidia while I was at CVS the other day, browsing around. Milani isn't a brand I pay much attention to, frankly. I love Hi-Tech and probably need to get the rest of their holos but the other colors have never struck me. I saw this in a spring display and figured I'd pick it up. Orchidia is a mid-toned purple, light enough to be springy but not pastel. It's full of really interesting silver shimmer that's very subdued. The formula was good but I'm not quite sure what happened when it was drying.. my coverage was good, I thought, but you can see some obvious patches and thinness in this picture. Strange, but oh well. Maybe if I wear it again, I'll do 3 coats instead of 2.
