Orly Ancient Jade & Pure Ice Heartbreaker

Hello lovelies!!

  So, I know colors like this one are uber done out and just about every polish company has a shade like this one on the market. However,lol, this is a new shade to me. I don't own anything like this one and out of all the lighters Jade tones I've seen I found this one to be the prettiest IMO.

Most color accurate
  This last pictures is the most color accurate. Ancient Jade can be best described as a Greener, Mintier For Audrey. It's a really lovely, creamy light Jade Green. Not quite as Yellow as the first few pictures make it seem. The formula on this was quite annoying, and that's something I usually never say. It was a bit thick and unpredictable. Heavily pigmented so at least there isn't an issue with streaking. For this mani I did Two patient coats of Ancient Jade.

And then I decided that it needed a little something else so I added a coat of Pure Ice Heartbreaker and the combo is way too stunning. Heartbreaker is an sheer Aqua jelly base packed full of micro Aqua iridescent glitter. Very beautiful! I love it because it doesn't cover up the beautiful Ancient Jade base, it just enhances it by adding that lovely subtle sparkle.
I was happy to see that this color didn't give me to bad of a case of lobsterhands because I really love this combo and it so screams spring at me :)!

  1. I love how microshimmer removes roughness from this polish, it's not just plain creme anymore, but the color remain the same.
    I did that too, with Orly Gumdrop.

    I wish you had Gumdrop so you can do a comparison, because they look pretty close.

  10. I love your site and the way you use nailpolish as hand art! I have never thought to layer polish or really use stencils or anything, but you continue to inspire me to try!
    Love it!
