okay. onto today's polish, orly (ya, rly!) star of bombay is from the gems collection back in 2008 (can't believe it was that long ago or that we are in 2010! where does the time go!?) and i was recently gifted it from a friend during a nail polish secret santa! i was very excited to receive it as i always MEANT to purchase it (i even picked it up at a drugstore when i was in ohio this time last year but i put it down and didn't actually purchase it) so colour me pleased!

these pictures probably look really washed out...but this is a DARK blue. it's really a blue-black and i couldn't get the blue to accurately show up until i put my fingers right under a lamp, it just kept looking black. i had no problems with application, great pigmentation too..definitely didn't need 3 coats, could've gotten away with two...but i'm a 3 coater, it cannot be undone!

I need more friends who give me polish, lol. Very nice shade of blue... for a moment I thought the shade was a black until I saw the pic with the tilted bottle.
