Did you know that taupe is French for mole? Recognize the colour? ;)


Type of polish: Cream.

Colour: A medium taupe/brown. It reminds me of melted milk chocolate :)

Collection: Orly Once Upon a Time Fall 2009.

Opacity: Great! This is two fairly thick coats. ;)

Drying time: Normal.

Formula: Very good! Not thin nor thick. Perfect! Stays where you want it to. And bare in mind ladies, that I opened and used this bottle for the first time in 2009....! The formula hasn't changed at all! That is what I call quality! :D

Brush: Nice and thick! And the cork is lovely to grab when applying! :D

Shine: Very shiny on its own, but I have one coat of Seche Vite in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Quite accurate. Best picture is the nail colour in the bottle picture. The halogen light pictures are a bit too dark brown looking.

: 3+/5 :)

This polish has a lovely formula and a nice tone of taupe/brown. When I bought it in 2009 this type of colour was very hot. It's still nice today, but a bit boring to me ;) That's why I only gave it 3+. But as I said, if you are in to this type of colour this one has a great formula!!
