Orly’s Opal Hope

This is another “faux-French” color. There's the barest coral-pink base color, with a blue-green duochrome flash. More coats deepens the iridescent effect, but the base color pretty much stayed “semisheer” even after three heavy-ish coats. Application was okay, though I had kind of been hoping for more of the coral-pink base color than I ended up getting. The finish is…odd. I think it might technically be a “frost”, because it does look a bit gritty. But the color is so fine, and the duochrome flash is so smooth, that it's not really a typical “frost”. (And definitely no visible brushstrokes.)
