NOTD: Orly Birds of a Feather Collection - 'Nite Owl'

I don't like birds. I think they're kind of gross and although the might be pretty to look at, they actually scare the life out of me. However, 'Nite Owl' from the new Birds Of A Feather collection is a pretty taupe shade with silver shimmer running through it so it makes a little more glam than your usual greige/taupe shade. I went through a huge greige/taupe phase last year but after a couple of months, I got quite sick of the colour and felt that it was just a little too dark for me so I ditched it and went back to my normal brighter shades of polish. Now that I'm embracing the glitter and shimmer in nail polishes, I have a feeling that 'Nite Owl' might become a firm favourite this season.

Isn't she just a beauty?
The polish went on in two easy coats with no streaky and it dried surprisingly quickly to a smooth finish, although I had to put my obligatory coat of Seche Vite on top to seal the deal. I understand that it won't be everyones cup of tea because the shade has a tendency to look a bit like 'smoker nails' but the shimmer definitely helps to give it some character!

Orly nail polishes are extremely good value for money considering they are the biggest in the beauty world at 18ml and start at around £6.95, compared to O.P.I which are £10.50 for 15ml. They have a pretty big selection of colours and finishes so if you want to try something new then I highly recommend Orly.

Have any of you picked anything up from the Orly lately that you can't get enough of? I want to know so email/tweet/Facebook or comment and give me your recommendations.

Until next time...
Keep swivelling those hips in your
