I actually have Orly's matte polishes in two shades, this purple velvet as well as a black shade. The black needs more than one coat to really show up, but the purple does just fine with one layer. I was really impressed with how resistant this polish is - it doesn't chip easily, even without a topcoat, but it removes cleanly even without a base polish! Pretty awesome when you take into account how inexpensive it is. The only thing I dislike is that it's difficult to find around where I live, so I've had to resort to Amazon to get more. :C Boo, shipping. But it's definitely worth it.
This is a very pretty shade of dark purple. It's a matte shade. Unlike other mattes, this takes longer to dry, which is good since it gives you longer to apply neatly and doesn;t dry while you're still applying. The application was smooth. Another great thing about this polish was the lasting power. Even without a base coat, this polish lasted for more than two days with only minor tip wear, and no chipping. Great product.
