Hello lovelies & happy Sunday! Today is our second Sunday of January, & the winter blahs are in full effect. So I thought we needed some serious bling to brighten up our days! Today I decided to grab a shade from my stash I’ve had forever, but never actually worn.
ORLY Total Eclipse.
& that is where the mystery started — because according to my Google research, no polish called Total Eclipse by ORLY has ever existed!
3 coats, no top coat
You’re looking at three coats of this beautiful glitter. The base itself is clear, but packed full of tiny blue micro glitters & larger holographic glitters. I chose to brush the polish on, but obviously sponging would give you a more opaque application.
I would definitely probably apply this shade with sponging, or apply it over some undies, so that you don’t need as many applications, & it will be less difficult to remove.
So, I bet you’re wondering… if this isn’t called Total Eclipse, what is the name of this shade? Well after some intensive Veronica Mars-worthy sleuthing, & some reverse image searching on Pinterest, I am 95% sure this is actually ORLY Angel Eyes.
I had originally bought this shade (like a few other ORLY shades in my stash) via Marshall’s, who seemed to have a habit years ago of taking old shades, & renaming them. Hence the mystery! Usually when I put in the alternative name in to Google, it’ll pop up with the original… but not this time. Haha. It was definitely a bit of a quest to find out what the original name is.
But I’m glad I solved the mystery!
Over all, I really like this glitter, & I’m kind of sad I haven’t really tried it out until now. I’m also glad I figured out the true name of this beautiful sparkly blue!
What do you think of ORLY Angel Eyes? Do you have this shade in your collection? Let me know what you think about it, & how you would wear this glittery blue.
