Orly Dark Shadows Collection: Buried Alive

Happy Tuesday my fellow nail polish addicts! Today I have a swatch from Orly to show you.

In May, Orly released a Collection of four polishes inspired by the Johnny Depp film, Dark Shadows. I wasn't blown away by most of the colors but Buried Alive did catch my eye. BA is a dark brown metallic with hints of gold and red throughout. I don't tend to like brown polishes all that much (I only own two not including BA), but this one is absolutely gorgeous. I applied it just to swatch for this post and was actually pretty sad to take it off. The formula is fantastic; goes on evenly and smooth. I did two coats for the photos below and topped with a coat of SV for extra shine. I don't own many Orly polishes but their formulas seem to be pretty great. I'm planning on revisiting BA in a future post and do a little nail art with it. It's just begging for gold accents.
