NOTD: ORLY Frolic


Manicure: ORLY Frolic from the Happy Go Lucky Collection. Electric / neon purple with pink / fuchsia undertones.

How To: For this manicure I used one coat of Essie's First Base Coat for adhesion; one coat of ORLY Frolic; and one coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

Notes: Frolic is one of those rare colors that is fully opaque in one coat - which, for me, is a first. A few weeks back I reviewed ORLY's Fancy Fuchsia, which I loved; but I far preferred the formula of Frolic over that.

Frolic has a thick formula, but it is super simple to work with; and stays put from the moment you place it on your nails. Sometimes I encounter polishes that run after you’ve applied them, which require a lot of clean-up afterwards – Frolic is not one of those. This one is perfect from the moment you put it on. I see Frolic as more of an electric than a neon color; however, it has neon qualities in that it does dry with a satin finish, so you definitely have to use a top coat for shine. Once you do apply topcoat though, this is literally one of the shiniest, most vibrant colors you will ever see.

Ordinarily I am not a huge fan of purple polishes, but this one has made it into my Top Ten Polishes of All Time - it is seriously that gorgeous. As a side note, this shade looks so pretty with just about any color it is paired with – I especially love how it looks with green.

Accessories: Dara Ettinger Chelsea Ring in Green.
