When Orly introduced their Metal Chic collection, there was one color that I wanted and that was Iron Butterfly. So, when they offered to send me one from the collection to try and review, I was so happy that they sent me Iron Butterfly. I may have even giggled when I opened the package. Though, I am a little over the whole matte thing, I do like this polish, and I may even like it more w/ a top coat (see below).
It's a deep charcoal grey matte with silver shimmer. Because it's matte, the shimmer looks like a rubbed silver, more than a bright shiny silver. This was 2 coats, and I had no problems with application. The formulation was more like OPI's Suede collection rather than a traditional matte.
It's awesome with a top coat, too.
If you are interested in viewing the entire collection, Scrangie has a drool-inducing post featuring Iron Butterfly as well as the other 2 in the collection. Her posts makes me want to pick up the other 2 polishes, even though they would look like crap with my skin (of course, all of Scrangie's posts do that. LOL).
This was sent to me for review
