Orly Black MegaPixel FX Review + Nail Art

Hey everyone! Today I have another review for you (I have a lot to get through), using the new Orly Black MegaPixel FX polish*, but this time I've included a bit of nail art. I'm actually really proud of these nails and I kept them on for a whole 3 days! Hopefully you will like them as much as I do. There's quite a few pictures in this post so I'm going to put them after the jump.

First up: the nail art! These nails were inspired by some shoes Cherry Healey posted on her Instagram, I screenshot them and when I was scrolling through my photos a couple of days later I saw them again and knew that I just had to recreate them, and I'm so happy with how they turned out. If you'd like I'm thinking about doing a tutorial for these nails, rather than explaining how I did them now, so let me know in the comments. The colours I used for the dogs were Butter LONDON - Cuppa, MASH - White, Butter LONDON - Cuppa mixed with a bit of MASH - Black for the grey, and black acrylic paint. Topped off with a coat of Seche Vite

The MegaPixel FX collection was released for Spring 2013 and features 6 'textured' glitters, although this is the most textured of the bunch. However, unlike the rest, this polish comes to life with a coat of topcoat, as you'll see below.  

This was 2 coats without topcoat and whilst it is textured it's not that textured. It's not uncomfortable and you could easily get away with wearing it just like this. 

Then I added 1 coat of Seche Vite topcoat, and I was in love. I've been lusting after Zoya - Storm for ages and I think I found the perfect replacement. 

Of course I couldn't resist the temptation of nail art on such a blank (albeit pretty) canvas, and along came the dogs!

What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
