Orly Iron Butterfly...and a little Konad gone wrong!

I picked Iron Butterfly up on clearance at Sally's a few weeks ago, and finally got to try it.

I haven't really been a fan of the matte trend, but pictures of Iron Butterfly looked amazing so I had to try it. It's awesome! This is one coat and it dried super fast! My husband thought it was the coolest looking polish ever, which is always nice.

Close up, you can see shimmer particles. Very much like asphalt.

I had planned to use this with a Konad in China Glaze Millenium. Unfortunately, it came out like this. Not sure where I went wrong, some of the lines just broke off. I thought Konad and I had reached a new point in our relationship where we understood each other, but apparently not.

Oh well, I still think it looks kinda cool, and I am not planing on leaving my office today. :)
Happy Birthday Abe!


  1. I love the idea, I have trouble with image transfer with Konad too!

  2. I think the issue is the design sticking onto the matte polish - I had some issues when I tried something similar.
