Orly Miss Conduct

I have a rare swatch post for you today!  Photographing this polish reminded me why I don't do swatches...such a pain getting a polish to look totally colour accurate.

Anyhoo, a little while ago I bought my mum a set of three Orly polishes, which included Miss Conduct.  It caused me genuine physical pain to hand it over to here, having seen Miss Conduct all over the blogosphere.  I couldn't justify buying myself a set as well, because the other two polishes were just a red creme (and I definitely have enough of those!) and a glitter that looked pretty similar to China Glaze Pure Joy.  I did contemplate deconstructing the set and just giving her the other two polishes, but I thought that wouldn't have been very daughterly of me...

But then!  A few weeks later there was a different set!  Still featuring Miss Conduct, but now with Halo and Angel Eyes, which I could TOTALLY justify adding to my collection!  So, at last, I had Miss Conduct. sat untried for a couple of months.

So I finally whipped it out to have a play last week.  I actually had thought it was a full coverage glitter (I have no idea how when I had looked at swatches), so I was rather surprised!


It's actually a rather fabulous magenta polish, with a very fine scattered holo.


I used two coats for these swatches, plus a coat of Seche Vite.


The colour is just totally stunning.  And the holo...well, it's holo, what more do I need to say?  It's quite a subtle holo I think, like at times you almost want to call it a shimmer, but it's definitely more than that.


Application had no problems.  No dragging or patchiness that you get with some holos.  And I wore this for a fair few days and didn't have any chipping, just minimal tip wear.


Do you have Orly Miss Conduct?  Or is it a polish you'd like to add to your collection?

I just need a blue holo now...
