Dorothy L: 98 Swatch & Review ★★★★/5

Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing today? I hope your week has been good this far? I am sorry I'm not here as much as I should be; I think you understand the situation. We return back to Holland on Sunday and I am a real mixture of emotions at the moment; I'm grateful I could come visit my family and bummed about going home. I am going to try and post once more before we leave England but I can't promise anything. I have to make the most of my time with my family since I always miss them like crazy. Anyway! For today I am showing you Dorothy L's #98 which is a polish my beautiful Mum picked up for me while holidaying in Greece – She's the sweetest. You'd love her.. but I am biased perhaps ;)

Colour ~ #98 is a beautiful vibrant juicy orange which I would have to say leans slightly towards red rather than yellow. In certain lights you could say it looks slightly like a burnt orange shade. I would say this is a jelly-like finish so you are seeing this manicure with three coats.

Application ~ Uh-mazing! Wait, I mean amazing. It is so perfectly smooth, even though I had a generous amount on the brush I had no issues with bubbles, it is self levelling and the dry time is a dream to work with.

Texture ~ The texture is like a liquid plastic dream. It is perfectly smooth in liquid form; not too thick or too runny and dries into a beautiful vinyl like finish with a gorgeously glossy appearance.

★★★★/5 I really love this fantastic-tango'd orange. I think this may well easily be my favorite orange polish in my collection now. Its temptingly juicy looking and with such a rapid dry time it is a treasure. I am also in love with the fact it is easy to get a gorgeous, insanely glossy and flawless finish even if you are not a confident painter or start streaky on the first coat – you'll be happy by the end result.

What do you think of this 'in your face' orange? How do you feel about orange polishes?
Stay Fabulous!
Love
Ithi
