Orly – Foil FX

Thursday, 11 March, 2010
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 2010 – Part II – Sweet

Friday, 5 February, 2010



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*

Pixy Stix – Shade (L) and Sunlight (R)
Not quite as bright as some other pinks out there, but…it’s got a pretty darn close neon factor.

Cotton Candy – Shade (L) and Sun (R)
Dunno why, but I think ‘coral’ when I see this on me.

Gumdrop – Shade (L) and Sunlight (R)
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.

As always, click to make the pics bigger. Sorry for the bad polish job, but I am working with some really bad lighting which makes me miss stuff

Overall loved this collection…even the bright Blushing Bud! Great formula and I only needed 2 coats per color.

Blushing Bud
Flash (Top) and No Flash (Bottom)
It looks mega bright on me, doesn’t it? I have a sneaking suspicion it won’t on a paler skinned person.
Ginger Lily
Flash (Top) and No Flash (Bottom)
Love this not quite ginger, not quite orange shimmer. I almost want to say it’s a light bronze, but it’s not quite.
Pure Petunia
Flash (Top) and No Flash (Bottom)
This opaque creme is a deeper pink with hints of purple – gorgeous!
Thorned Rose
Flash (Top) and No Flash (Bottom)
A lovely brown based red creme – flawless application.
Wandering Vine
Flash (Top) and No Flash (Bottom)
I am not a fan of green nail polish, but this creme is…just gorgeous. It reminds me of the green they have from the Enchanted Forest line they released in Fall 2009. I’ll have to do comparison swatches.
Wild Wisteria
Flash (Top) and No Flash (Bottom)
Loving this royal purple creme – I’ve seen a similar one in the OPI Spring 2010 collection…it’s called “Grape something”. I like this color, though…very pretty!
