NOTD: Orly Synchro Nail Polish

I love duochrome nail polish and was really excited about Synchro nail polish from Orly's Electronica collection. It's a very unique shade, looks amazing in the bottle and the duochromeness also transfers onto the nails. It looks pink with blue flashes (the blue especially shows up well with flash), but also it has orangey-red tones to it at certain angles. A little hard to capture it properly, but you get the idea.

The formula was a little runny and it needed 3 coats to achieve the colour you see. It wasn't very easy to apply and as you can see the brushstrokes are very visible on my nails. It also didn't dry very quickly, and it started chipping within the first 24 hours and by 48 hours I had some big chips. I always have to add that practically everything chips on me within 48 hours (I think one or two brands have lasted maybe 60 hours without chipping, but that's the exception). It's a very unique colour though, so if you don't mind a few flaws, you might like this.

You get a whopping 18 ml for £7.50 (BeautyBay) or for quite a bit less on eBay from the US. Not sure if anyone needs that much, but there's also a set of 4 mini polishes available from BeautyBay for £12.95 if you prefer.
