Nail of the Day – Orly Rage

By Get Lippie

It’s been a while since I showed you what I was wearing on my nails, but Orly Rage is a colour that was … ahem … all the rage on the beauty blogs last year, and I’ve finally got around to wearing it for myself.  I picked up this mini-bottle in Boots for a fiver a couple of months ago.

Orly Rage is a metallic foil, in a pale champagne/rose gold shade.  My nails show two thin coats over Orly Bonder (my Holy Grail nail basecoat), and topped off with Seche Vite.  It’s wonderfully opaque, and very pretty.

But somehow, it’s not very me.  I spent a day with it on wondering why it wasn’t very me, and then I realised that the reason it isn’t is because it’s very … my mum. These shimmery champagne shades are all she wears, and as a result I prefer shades with a bit more oomph.

So, all in all, not a winner shade for me, but the formula is magnificent. I need to pick up more from Orly this year.

The Fine Print: Purchase. Can’t resist a mini-bottle of anything, me.
