Orly RIP

Hey Everyone!

 

I FINALLY got my hands on a bottle of Orly RIP. This may not seem like a big deal, but after the ordeal of picking up Orly So Go-Diva accidentally thinking it was RIP and then followed by weeks of failed attempts finding it in stores, this was a feat. My bestie and I drove 35 minutes to the new Ulta which happens to be the only one near us two weekends ago. We came up empty handed with Orly RIP, but found the China Glaze Wicked Collection at the smaller beauty supply store next to Ulta. Then as we were having dinner she mentioned maybe there was a Sally’s near there. I looked it up on my phone and there was one like .02 miles down the road from us lol. So we booked it over and TADA!!! There were two bottles of RIP sitting there waiting for us. Good thing there was two and not just one…that would have been awkward :P

 

* I must also add that in the middle of my writing this post I lost power because of Sandy! I have power again obviously, but I wanted to point out how difficult this polish is being!!

Orly RIP is part of the Spellbound Collection, which I also think is considered part of the Glam FX Collection as well. It has a sheer black jelly base with micro and medium sized burnt orange glitter. Formula pretty much sucked for this. I first attempted to build it up to opacity, but after the first coat I changed my mind. The jelly base was super streaky and goopy. That combined with the glitter sticking together into balls of gunk and some severe pooling changed my mind on building this into layers. I started over and used a black polish as my undies and then applied one coat of RIP on top. The polish was still goopy so I did a bunch of dabbing and pushing so in reality it may have been 1 1/2 – 2 coats worth of polish. The upside was that it wasn’t a top coat eater and it looked pretty decent once it was complete.

So thats Orly RIP. Despite the crappy formula it’s an alright polish, but probably not worth an extensive amount of effort to get.

      Haha I know! I had to coordinate and schedule each Halloween mani this week…thats why I suddenly posted like every day ;) I have two of the CG Wicked Collection that didn’t make the cut, but those can still work as non Halloween polishes.

    I got this one too and didn’t have as many problems with it, though I went straight for the black undies and didn’t bother trying to reach opacity on its own haha – looks great though!

      Yea I don’t know what I was thinking when I kept painting without undies after the first coat haha. Luckily I stopped myself before I did a whole hand.

    This looks great on you. Too bad the formula wasn’t that great lol. It’s funny when you want something for so long and then when you finally get it, it’s like “eh” haha. This does look like an awesome glitter though!
    I’m glad you got power back! Hopefully Sandy passes soon…

      Yea, maybe a little thinner would help…but I’d doubt I’ll be wearing this again any time soon.

    I really like this polish but it’s too bad that it was kind of a pain to work with. I would probably get this polish if I ran across it but I wouldn’t go searching for it. It sucks that after all the searching, you ended up being disappointed. I don’t know if it’s just my computer or internet being wonky, but I’ve noticed that I seem to have a really hard time loading your posts…like they take forever. It’s prolly just my dumb wifi.

      :/ I’m having such issues with my site loading. I thought it was just me at first cause I have crappy internet connection so I checked at my boyfriend’s place and it loaded much quicker…but now that you said something I know its not just me. I tried decreasing my photo size so they’d load faster, but it hasnt helped. I even installed a widget to load my site faster but it feels like it got worse. I dunno what to do :(

    2. Frosso

      Ok…I think I kinda have it figured out. My future posts should load easily…or less slowly at least. *fingers crossed* P.S. Thanks for letting me know!

    This looks like it would be gorgeous built up to opacity! That sucks that it was such a difficult one, though! I love black jelly-based glitters!

      I love black jelly based glitters too, which is why I wanted this so bad, but alas it was not meant to be a great one for me.

    That SUCKS that your RIP disappointed you!! After all that searching!! :( I think I added a little thinner to mine but I didn’t have the trouble you did. I like the Orly Glam FX polishes but the base is always soooo dang goopy! It’s like snot instead of polish. I know that’s gross but it’s true. That being said, I just add thinner though (learned that from Cynthia- thinner’s not just for old polishes! Haha) and they’re just fine.

      Thinner crossed my mind too, but I think after all the effort I already put into getting RIP I didn’t want to work any harder for it at that point.

    All our searching and nightmares about this polish paid off in the end lol! It is super Halloweenie! Thanks to darn Sandy I still haven’t gotten to use it.

    1. Frosso

      Oh no! I’m sure it would still be an untried for me if I lost power too.
