it's been a week since my last post and I am so happy I can finally get back to blogging today. Last week has been super busy, hence the lack of posts. I went to a scientific meeting on Thursday and Friday where everyone had to give a talk about the project they're working on. Preparing this talk took up most of my free time, because I wanted it to be good and not disappoint my professor. I have been working on this project for four years now and gave talks about it numerous times, but still I am nervous when I have to speak in front of a large audience (especially when there are mostly PIs watching you). In the end I think it went quite well and even my professor went up to me and said I did fine. Yay! It was exhausting though, as those two days consisted of lunch, talks, coffee break, talks, dinner, talks, breakfast, talks, lunch, more talks. So yesterday I needed some time to relax and today I finally pulled out my laptop and edited some photos. But enough with the rambling, on to the polish!
Today I want to share with you Orly's Elation Generation. It feels like I haven't worn and posted an Orly polish in forever. That's a shame, because I love their polishes. Elation Generation from the Hope And Freedom collection for Spring 2013 is a hot pink jelly polish with holographic glitter in it and it's a stunner!
The pictures are not doing this polish justice, because the silver holographic particles are much sparklier in real life! The jelly base obscures the glitter of the underlying layers and makes it look like a sandwich manicure. Me likey! Needless to say I adore the color, because this Spring I am totally hooked on the bright neon pink trend :D
Since the base of Elation Generation is a sheer jelly, I had to do three coats to get full coverage. The polish also is on the thick side, but still manageable. As a base coat I used Orly Bonder and INM Out The Door as my top coat. With this combination, Elation Generation wore like iron and there were no cracks or chips after three days. For removal I suggest using the foil method, because the silver holo glitter is pretty stubborn.
The Orly Hope And Freedom collection is available now at various retailers and one bottle costs $8-9. For my German readers, Orly has on official German webshop where you can buy the lastest Orly collections. I have not ordered there, yet, but if you have already tried it, let me know!
Enjoy your Sunday, thanks for reading!
