I'm a little pressed for time, so I apologize if this manicure is not really creative. Orly's Ma Cherie, (my darling in French), is a fantastic, blue based, medium, classic, red JELLY polish! Super shiny and pretty durable. As I write this, I'm on day two with no chips and very, very little tip wear.
This polish is slightly transparent. In person I can see my tips through the polish. I had a hard time capturing the jelliness and the color, it still seems a teeny bit orange-y to me in the photos. These photos are 2/3 a stop down, and is as close to true color as I could get. Its pretty close.
Well, it is gorgeous! Ma Cherie is from the 2011 Holiday Soriee collection.
I used Orly's nail defense base, two coats of Ma Cherie, and one coat of INM out the door top coat.
Since I wasn't very creative this year, I thought I would include some photos from my trip to France back in September of 2010.
