Orly Synchro

This is a very picture heavy post, because this polish is quite the chameleon! Orly Synchro is from the Electronica collection released for early fall 2012.

It’s a duochrome shimmer that is kind of frosty. The colour ranges from coral to pink to purple to nearly blue, depending on the angle.

The formula was a bit thick and sticky; not the easiest to work with. Care also has to be taken to get the brush strokes straight.

It’s also pretty sheer, and this was three coats, the last one thick.

Totally worth it though! The colours are amazing! It makes me think of a sunset.

I also swatched it using one fairly thick coat over black (one coat of Kleancolor Black). The layer on my ring finger somehow ended up being thicker than the others, and it shows in the photos; the ring finger has more of a pinkish-purple tone while the other fingers show off the more blue side of the polish.

I found the trick to applying Synchro to be using a thick enough final coat that you have time to straighten out the brush strokes before it starts to get sticky.

I just love all the colours in this! And how it looks quite different over black versus on its own!

  1. Hey Ariix,

    Ok, you have to stop posting beautiful duochromes! They are my weakness and this one is over the edge gorgeous.

    I just recently got into layering polishes, I can’t wait to swatch and layer this one. After I scrape the money together to buy it, that is. 😉

    Take care.
    Sophie

    • Sorry! Ok, not really sorry 😉 I’d definitely recommend this one to anyone who loves duochromes and doesn’t mind a little bit of brushstroke-iness! 😀
