Those who are subbed to the new She Said Beauty box might recognise this Orly nail polish. I received 'Ancient Jade' which is a shade that looks exactly as stated. It's a very cool toned jade colour, and it's the coolness in it that gives it the ancient look I think, unlike some brighter turquoisey/jades you see that make it a bit more vibrant. In the bottle it looked truly lovely.
On application, first coat seemed a little streaky at first, but that was nothing a second coat couldn't sort out. The colour is actually very opaque and matte without a top coat on, and I always like a bit of glossiness to my nails, so I wouldn't go without a top coat with this polish. I have since added my new fave Pearl Effect glaze on top, which actually makes my nails kinda mermaid like now!
Overall, I think this is a lovely shade by Orly. I'm a big fan of Orly polishes as my mum has always used them with her business, and this wasn't a let down. I don't usually wear greeny shades, so it was nice to have a little bottle of this to test it out (5.3ml bottle). I reckon I'd repurchase, seeing as the pastel shades are so hot at the moment in the beauty and fashion world. A really great choice from She Said Beauty to put this in their first box :)
