Orly Foil FX Collection

I received this information in a press release from Orly's PR company

In step with the metallics that ruled the runway during the Spring 2010 fashion shows in New York, Paris and Milan, ORLY introduces the FOIL FX Collection. Delivering a uniquely texturized foil effect, the FOIL FX Collection extends fashion all the way to fingertips and toes, offering the sought-after “Minx-look” in an easy-to-use and affordable Lacquer formula that won’t damage nails or break the bank. Great news, since bold and “blinged-out” nails are THE must-have accessory this spring!

The colors are:
Rage: Rose foil metallic
Shine: Silver foil metallic
Luxe: Gold foil metallic

I received the gold one, Luxe, to review. 

Isn't she pretty?  I realize this does not look good with my skintone, at all, but there are so many good things about this polish, I'm willing to overlook the fact that it makes my hands look older and a little red.  Who knows... maybe in the morning, I'll feel totally different.

This is ONE coat.  I was in a bit of a hurry to polish my nails so I could watch LOST (WTF, btw), so I was so pleased that this practically flowed onto my nails.  Also, there are no brushstokes.  They really do give the look of Minx.  Though in pictures, it looks like Minx has more of a uniform look, like someone put gold or silver foil on their nails.  However, for a polish, this captures it really well. 

Also, I've been kinda jonesing for a nice gold polish, since I live in the land Ulta forgot and wasn't able to get my hands on Dazzled by Gold.  And while I think this one may be too shiny for me to wear alone, thus not eliminating the need for another gold, I think it would look amazing as a konad base (how fresh would a white and gold konad look in the summer on tanned (not mine. LOL) hands?).  I also wonder how well this polish would work as the stamp color. 

If you are interested in the other colors, be sure to check out Vampy Varnish.  Looks like Kelly received the colors I didn't.  I'm already dying for Rage.  I love me some rose gold, so I can't wait to try it.  The email stated that these should be out in mid-March.  However, the information for the Metallic Matte collection was also included in the press release, and it stated that Metallic Matte would be out mid-March as well, and I think that one has been at Sally's and etailers for months, so who knows... Foil FX may be released sooner.

This was sent for review.

I'm not really a gold person but I do like this one. I might consider buying it and then wear it when something special comes up.

Tbh gold doesn't suit many people but this does actually look good on you and it is a classy-looking polish. A success and your Konad plans sound good too.

At first, when I saw the pic of the 3 polishes, I though I wouldn't like the gold one. But on your nails, I adore it !
I also saw the others colors on Vampy Varnish and they are all gorgeous.
Finally, I agree with Jaljen, it looks good on you ^^

I got these from PR too, and they're amazing. You're right, that formula applies like a dream. The silver would look awesome on your skintone!

I love this polish. Really a bright foily gold. I've seen the other two online and their equally gorgeous. I love Lost and it's always confusing to me.
