Favorites: Orly Lucky Duck

Hi everyone!  Today I have another favorite polishes post for you featuring an awesome green creme, Orly's Lucky Duck.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Lucky Duck has kind of been in the back of my stash lately, but when I was doing swatches, I picked it up and knew I had to feature it.  It's a great green, one of my favorite colors when it comes to polish.

I really love this color for its formula as well.  Orly polishes wear like iron on me and last a long time, but they can be hit or miss for ease of application.  Lucky Duck is a hit!  It's smooth, creamy and not too thick or thin.  These photos show two easy coats with no top coat.  It naturally has a great shine to it!

And here's a wider shot of my bottle, so you can see what my monster dog did when he got a hold of this duck!  The hubby and I ran out to make a fifteen minute dinner run one night and my case happened to be left open... Well, Mr. Havoc pulled out several bottles and started chewing on the caps!  Lucky Duck got the worst treatment, but he didn't get any of them open thankfully.  That was the first and last time my case was ever left open!

I decided to give this a little interest because I wore it for a day.  On top, I layered one quick coat of a glitter mix.  It's the Pretty in Pastel mix from You Mix Cosmetics in a little suspension base.  I picked up a few samples of their matte blends just for myself and made some quick and easy top coats.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Very pretty combo! I like that the base colour isn't overwhelmed by the glitter!
