Review and Swatches--Orly Rococo A-Go-Go

There was one bottle left of Orly Rococo A-Go-Go at T.J. Maxx, and it was only $3.99...so of course, now it is mine.

Rococo A-Go-Go is part of Orly's Mineral FX collection of duo-chrome polishes. It's a beautiful, dark purple with duo-chrome flashes of gold and fuchsia. The duo-chrome is very apparent in the bottle, as below, but at first seemed to hide when on the nail, as above.

(I'm sorry for the adhesive left over on the bottle; it's from the sale sticker. I forgot to clean it off with rubbing alcohol.)

This polish did not fail, however. The gold and fuchsia definitely came out to play, but they were choosy about which light they preferred.

You could easily achieve sufficient coverage in two coats, but I chose to use three coats so that it would be opaque even when held up to the light.

Application was very smooth. I had to be a little bit careful so that the polish would not flood my cuticles, but nothing crazy.

I topped it off with Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Top Coat. I have been wearing Rococo A-Go-Go for a few days now with zero chips and minimal tip wear. I did polish my nail tips to cut down on tip wear.

Overall, I love this polish. It is shimmery and rich, and it looks as if it is constantly changing. I wish that the gold showed up more, but it is not a big detraction. Orly's website shows the retail price of their full-size polishes as $8.50.

What do you think? Do you have a favorite duo-chrome polish? I would definitely like to try more of them.
