Orly FX "Star Trooper"
Hi everyone! Happy end of the week! (Hooray for Friday!) As Christmas creeps every closer everything starts to get more shimmery and glittery! So today I decided to pick out a super glitter nail polish by Orly called "Star Trooper."
"Star Trooper" has a black jelly base and loads of gold, silver, and white hexagonal glitter mixed in it, and it just shimmers in the light! Formula wise most glitters are notorious for being difficult but this definitely wasn't the case with "Star Trooper" which applied super easily! After two coats of polish "Star Trooper" wasn't completely opaque but it was barely noticeable because of all the glitter. As for chipping I'm not completely sure because the glitter does tend to hang off the edge of the nails and it snags on everything. And the snagging leads to chipping and frustration very quickly, however I think with a little practice and patience I could have gotten glitter free nail edges.
Overall I quite like Orly's "Star Trooper." It has a wonderful formula that was easy to apply and gorgeous color and as I mentioned above all the snagging that the glitter caused could be fixed if I was more patient while painting. I definitely plan on wearing this nail polish again soon!
Thanks for reading my blog! :)
