Glam Rock, from Orly's Metal Chic collection, is my favorite of the 3. That's not to say I don't like the other 2, because I love them all. Copper is often the less popular alloy when discussing elements, so maybe it's because I always like to route for the underdog. Or maybe it's just a personal preference when it comes to these 3, I don't know. I posted the others just below this one, so check them out and let me know what your favorite one is. Glam Rock is a medium shade of copper that like the other 2, applied nicely in 2 coats. I'm really impressed with these overall, and what I like the most about them, other than the fact that they're metal element shades, is the metal flake detail. They show a definite separation of the darker and lighter shades in each one, giving them an interesting and somewhat dimensional look. With a top coat applied to Glam Rock, the detail seems even more precise, rendering an almost holographic appearance. Orly did an outstanding job with this small, yet versatile collection. Which one do you like the most?
