Ever since the Orly Mineral FX Collection came out, I had my eyes on Orly Rococo A-Go-Go.
But, at the time, money was tighter than hipster pants accidentally thrown into the dryer on high heat…soooo…I didn’t get it. And I put my eyes back into their sockets.
After several months, this bad boy is now mine, and he certainly was worth the wait!
A purple like this makes your heart race and your pupils dilate. Is it love or lust? Probably both! 😉
I don’t really get the name of the polish, though. When I think of it, I picture a go-go dancer. And ‘Rococo’ reminds me of Rocco, this dude my best friend had a crush on in elementary school. So whenever I see the name Rococo A-Go-Go, I always get a mental picture of Rocco as a go-go dancer, and it makes me laugh!

Orly Rococo A-Go-Go Review
Rococo A-Go-Go is like a magician’s cloak. It’s a rich purple that has eggplant leanings, but you can also see magenta and some red. Depending on the angle, you can sometimes see orange, but it’s pretty rare and it’s only in a certain type of dim lighting that I was able to see it. The orange isn’t as prominent on your nail as it looks in the bottle.
It’s a very sexy polish that I think a lot of you will be liking more in the fall.
As for myself, though, I’ve already fallen for it. I just can’t help being swayed by these Nail Polish Romeos. 😉
Rococo A-Go-Go by Orly has a micro-glitter or micro-shimmer finish. (It’s hard for me to tell.) It’s larger than just plain shimmer, but it’s not big like traditional glitter.
The finish helps this polish catch the light and come to life!
Application & Formula
As with most Orly nail polishes, this one applied like a dream involving David Beckham. 😉 Yup, that perfect!
With a single coat, you’ll get plenty of coverage, but I suggest using two coats to full opacity and to even everything out.
The formula is great because the polish flows onto the nail with ease and works so well with the Orly brush. The only reason my manicure isn’t perfect-looking is because of my own human error. The formula is perfect!
Final Verdict: 9.5/10
This is one of those colours you wear that you can’t stop looking at when the sunlight hits it. In person, it’s way better than my photos would suggest. To me, this is one of the must-have purples in my collection. Haha, it’s too bad that I already published my blog post on My Top 5 Favourite Purples. This one may have squeaked in…although I’m not sure which other colour it would’ve kicked off the list!
