I'm on a subtle marbling kick, I guess. But this time I went in a different direction--hard to miss, bold. This is by far the hardest manicure I have tried to photograph to date. Neither of these pictures seem to do the manicure justice, but they were the best of the bunch. It might be because I used two new colors in the new Orly Cosmic FX collection. It isn't listed on their website yet since it's a fall collection, but it's out in stores here in the US now. I found them at Ulta. Here is a good review of the collection. Bottom line they are prismatic, glitter/mineral polishes that are multi-tonal and therefore hard to capture on camera. In real life, it really does resemble the iridescence of an oil slick.
