Razzle Dazzle

Orly Razzle is a key example of why you can't judge a polish by the way it looks in the bottle. I was given this polish as a gift from my mother for Easter. See, in the bottle, it has a raspberry hue with little bits of silver glitter sprinkled throughout it. However, on the nail, it turns more to a dark raspberry glass fleck polish. It's gorgeous.


The flower nail art was inspired by the incredible nail artist Robin Moses. She recently did a Henna Nail Design that was just spectacular. I designed this flower after seeing that post. You should check out her blog and YouTube page because she's just amazing.

For this look I applied 1 coat of CND Stickey base coat, followed by 3 coats of Orly Razzle. I used my Stripe Rite acrylic striper in white to create the flower. I topped the whole thing off with 1 coat of CND Super Shiney Top Coat, and finished with 1 final coat of OPI RapiDry Top Coat (didn't want it to smudge in bed!).


It's pretty safe to say that I love this flower design and this Orly color. Love love love. Thanks, Mom :)

  8. Is Stickey a base coat? if so, how is it compared to Seche Vites base coat?

    The flower is pretty, at first glance I thought you stamped it.

  10. Hey Obsessed! Yes, Stickey is a green base coat from CND. I've never tried Seche's base... but I really like Stickey a lot. It's the only one I use lately.
