Swatches > Orly | Luxe

I absolutely adore this color like no other!  its so wearable, but at the same time so dressy and classy.  I usually shy away from metallics, because they either look wonky on me or they go on streaky or the formulas are just bad.  I have absolutely no complaints about Luxe.  It went on smoothly with two coats, formulas was great for a metallics, not too thick or thin, and it wore for 3 days with pretty much no chipping.  I used the Orly Glosser as my top coat and was very impressive with its performance too.  I've used Orly Glosser in the past with other brands, but it never really made my polish pop like Seche Vite or ChG FstFwd did.

I'm so glad I picked Luxe up on a whim.  I'll definitely be wearing it once the holidays come back around, but honestly it can be worn anytime.  Its trendy yet subtle, a perfect balance.
