ANDDD We're back with another Forget Me Not Friday! Today I have Sinful Colors Leather Loose from the Leather Luxe Collection (Fall 2013?) and Orly FX Star Trooper from Orly Galaxy FX (Spring 2014). I figured these 2 would look nice together! Killin' birds, yo! Check them out after the jump.

So last year, I initially skipped out on this polish until someone on Instagram told me I HAD TO BUY IT. Why would I argue with that? lmao. So I went back and picked it up, to kill the situation of never seeing it again. (So if you happen upon this discontinued polish, snatch it!) Leather Loose is a blackened brown matte polish with gold and bronze shimmer. Okay, okay - whoever told me I needed this was right. What an awesome matte finish, a unique color, and pretty shimmer.

I did 2 coats of Leather Loose. Application was easy to work with; applied like any other Sinful Colors. No issues with the matte drying all crazy-like while applying. I was impressed. Dry time was great, no complaints.

I figured Leather Loose would go well with Orly Star Trooper. Star Trooper is a dark blackened brown jelly base filled with gold shimmer, tiny squares, while tiny hex and silver small hex. I was iffy about this one when I picked it up on clearance at Sally's this past summer, but I really like it! The dimension the mix of glitter and shimmer creates is awesome! Not disappointed at all.

I did 1 coat of Star Trooper over Sinful Colors Leather Loose.  I have a feeling layered in its own, it would take 2-3 coats to kill my visible nail line. One coat was good enough for layering, it was packed with glitter! I did have to mix it up a little, these FX polishes are known for sinkage. Otherwise, no issues with application and no complaints on dry time :]

Happy Friday!
I bought this myself. Is that good enough for you, Federal Trade Commission?
