Orly's Goth & Barielle's Slate of Affairs

Tuesday, 23 March, 2010

So the little black nail polish wearing, corset sporting, goth girl at heart loves this color…and not because of the name! I’ve always had a tendency to lean towards dark nail polish and this is no exception…even if it has glitter. What I love about this is actually the glitter…it’s silver against black – yay!! – but not only that it’s different sizes: big, medium and small. Very cool. What a way to play on glitter, Orly. Smart move!

I am so sweet on this blue gray. I wish I could carry off gray nail polish and I wish I could carry off some of the blues I see out there…and this is a perfect compromise! This concrete blue hints at periwinkle, too. It’s got a mild blue shimmer that runs through it, making this blue-gray a total winner in my book!

Orly – Foil FX

Orly Luxe

Things that make me go SQUEEEEE…and when I saw this on my nails, I sure did that. 🙂

I’m currently wearing this on my nails – loving this shiny foil like effect!

Out of all the 3 Foil Fxes, this one flattered me the most and I loved it. I looked at it on me and the only thought that ran through my head was, “This reminds me of rose gold!”

It looked super futuristic on me, but I did like this…it reminded me of an old school Urban Decay I had about 15 years ago.

Not one my favorites…only because it’s too close to gold and I look awful in gold. Rose gold (I love it makes things have an antique-y feel to it!) is a bit cooler in tone so I find I tend to favor it than straight up yellow gold. When I looked at this color from a distance on me it really wasn’t very flattering for me.

Orly Spring II 2010

Orly Spring 2010 – Part II – Sweet

As always, click the thumbnails to see the bad cuticles up close. 😉

I’m not partial to pastels and I guess Orly had to put up some pastels because well, it’s spring and what is that season without pretty happy colors for me to throw up on?

I did have problems on most of them. I tried different base coats and they still had a tendency to be a bit chalky and unpredictable. All were 2 coats aside form Cotton Candy. I think I had a bunk bunch of bottles. Oh well. *shrugs*

Not quite as bright as some other pinks out there, but…it’s got a pretty darn close neon factor.

Dunno why, but I think ‘coral’ when I see this on me.

I thought of China Glaze’s For Audrey when I put this on. Will amend post later to add in a comparison swatch

Lemonade – Shade (L) and Sunlight (R)
Just reaffirms my belief that I was never meant to wear pastel yellow OR yellow nail polish, period. Ever.

Lollipop – Shade (L) and Sunlight (R)
This reminds me of a lavender shade that’s been liberally doused with pink…

Snowcone – Shade (L) and Sunlight (R)
I thought it was a periwinkle color, but it’s more along the lines of a light turquoise.
