NOTD: Orly Sapphire Silk

Posted on: July 11, 2013

Sapphire Silk by Orly is a dark teal greenish-blue shade. I like this color as I think it is unique in itself, and I like bluish polish anyway. Also, there is a “bunny” logo on the bottle. It’s not the Leaping Bunny, but its nice to see the bunny on any bottle of polish! So, win win!

Sapphire Silk goes on very smooth, a bit thin formula wise but great coverage. I probably could have got by with 1 coat but I used 2 with a quick dry top coat.

I don’t have a lot of Orly nail polish in my collection but the few I have, I really like and use often. Sapphire Silk comes in a .6 oz bottle with the rubberized top. The brush is typical, maybe a bit thin. It seems to me that the brush picked up too much of the polish and I was worried about it pooling into my cuticles before I could get the polish where I wanted. This is the first time I’ve seen this with any of my Orly polishes. I don’t know if this is a typical problem or not? I bought Sapphire Silk in a set called Perfect Pairings at T J Maxx for $6.99/set of 2. The other polish that was the “perfect pairing” was Mojitoe, a bright almost neon green. I tried the 2 together in my half and half manicure and I didn’t care for the pairing.
Sally’s Beauty Supply carries Orly, and I’m sure it’s available at Amazon.com. I think the normal price for a bottle at Sally’s is around $9, so I was happy with the deal I got on the 2 bottles. Even with the deal,The great color, the bunny logo I can only give this polish 3/5 stars 🌟🌟🌟. Formula wise and the brush just didn’t suit me. But I know I’ll wear Sapphire Silk a lot because it is a great color!

💅. As always, thanks for stopping by!

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
