Orly Stone Cold

Words and photos cannot describe this polish. But let's give it a shot.

Holy goodness. Let me start by saying that I was drawn to this polish because I love Orly and I heard people loved these polishes... and I had 15% off at Sallys =D. I chose Stone Cold because I love blue polishes and nothing else really stood out to me. But after trying this, I want all of them!!

This polish in the bottle does NOT do it justice!! Even the swatches on the displays do not do this polish justice. I just don't understand. I was reluctant to purchase it because it has a higher price tag than normal Orly's, and it just didn't look that special. Well it lived up to the hype and more.

It's a beautiful vibrant blue that is FILLED with these small, irregular shaped pieces of... glitter? I don't know if you'd call it glitter per say, it reminds me of like tiny flakes of a blue cellophane with kind of a blue iridescence in a matching blue jelly base. But it's packed with those little pieces whatever you wanna call them. Regardless, it makes for an effect that is so beautiful and unusual. You HAVE to see it in real life and on the nail.

The formula was lovely to work with. A bit on the thicker side, but I think that was a good thing. Very manageable.

  1. I've got this one, too. It's so amazing. And I did you you said - once I tried this kind of mineral polish by Orly I had to get more. And it comes off easily unlike most sparkly polishes. Hmm, will you be doing a little video of the sparkle in sunlight?

    I actually picked up Emberstone on clearance at Sallys a week or two ago! A video is a really great idea. Maybe I will do that!

    It really is, and I cannot explain how much photos don't do it justice!
