Nail Prettiness in Orly Preamp


I realized earlier that I haven't posted what's been on my nails lately, so I thought today I would put up a nail post.  This was one of 2 polishes I picked up at full price from the Electronica collection.  I wore this pretty polish back in September.  I haven't been doing my nails a whole lot lately since for some reason, most of my nails have cracked, torn, or broke so at one point more than half had nail patches on and I didn't want to mess them up by using acetone to remove polish very lots of naked nails for the last 2-3 weeks.

Now, I know that on Sunday, I posted that I was having problems with an Orly polish, but for some reason, this Orly worked well over my normal base.  Maybe it has something to do with the more flake-shaped shimmer.  This is 2 coats of Orly Preamp over my usual base of Bridge the Ridge.  I used a quick dry top coat before pictures.

My hands must have been cold in this shot since the skin is all red & splotchy.  
But look at all the pretty shimmers!

Preamp is a pretty rosey-pink with a hint of purple to it.  Contained in the pretty pinkness are golden-pink flakey-shaped shimmers that make this baby glow.  If I remember right, this did dry slowly on me (I'm telling you, Orly formulas and me do not get along), so I put on Sally Hansen Diamond Flash top coat (and got a topcoat bubble).  I got a few days wear out of this, but forget how many exactly.

This polish is the one I wanted most when I started seeing swatches of it come up through all the blogs I'm subscribed to.  At the first Sally's I stopped at, it was already gone...I persevered. I went to a second Sally's, intent on my mission.  I saw that baby sitting on the display and snatched it up, along with the other interesting polish in that little collection!

Did you pick up any of the shades from when the Electronica collection came out?
