I needed to get some summer colors on my digits to brighten things up:
|Toes: Orly Frolic|
Fingers: Essie Tart Deco
The Orly is only the second polish of this brand I've purchased, the first being Space Cadet, with which I was less than impressed. The formula was very thin and shrank as it dried - before I even put any top coat on! And the color looked a lot less appealing on my nails than it did in the bottle. But I had a $5 coupon from Sally Beauty, and knowing that a lot of people love this brand, I decided to try it one more time.
Frolic applied very nicely, and I liked the brush. But it dried semi-matte, which I thought was unusual. I'm not sure if this is common with Orly. Top coat fixed it of course, and I think the color is great.
Here's a better pic of the Essie:

I wasn't sure this color would work on me, but I really like it. Unfortunately, I messed up one nail while cooking dinner later on. But it was fun to look at all afternoon while I was working on finishing up Capri! Button bands are knitted and sewn on, neckband is picked up and knit. All that's left is to sew the thing together!
