This is the polish that the girl in the Orly Precious Collection promo picture wears–she’s relaxing in some shady outdoor area and her nails glow with a gentle white color. I decided that I wanted to try it too! Pure Porcelain is a creamy, pinkish beige but it has a lot of white in it; it’s brighter than any of the other neutral polishes I have.
This polish is very opaque and went on really nicely for something so white. This picture shows two easy coats–it’s thick but flows well and covers well, too. It dries more pink on the nail than it appears in the bottle, which makes it more flattering and prettier than I thought it would be. It has the clean, bright look of a white without the stark weirdness.
In indirect light, you can see the beige/pink tones even more. It suddenly reminds me of all of the nudes that I’ve been trying lately when I look at this picture!
Then I topped it with Essie’s Kisses and Bises, a pink pearl. I’m really liking this Essie a lot too, lately. I end up putting it on about half of the polishes I try, because it goes well with a lot of colors, and there’s something romantic and blushy about it. This picture shows two coats of Kisses and Bises on top of the two coats of Pure Porcelain. This is a combination that will just suddenly flash out with bright pink when you change lighting, and on top of the creamy color of Pure Porcelain it seems kind of fairy-princess-like and delicate. So pretty!
It’s hard to capture the flash and lustre of Kisses and Bises, but the shade picture gives a hint.
