ORLY Spring Collection 2018, Pastel City Swatch & Review

*Press Sample - This post contains an item(s) that was provided for reviewing purposes however I will as always give my full, honest and completely unbiased opinion.

Allo polish Pals!

How are you doing today? Happy Hump day to you. It doesn't feel like hump day to me as today I am back at work until Saturday, what an odd working week, don't you think? Still I am excited to go in and see everyone, sale some gorgeous perfume and serve some fabulous customers.

You can not imagine my surprise when a delivery man pulled up at my door last week. I hadn't been expecting any parcels so I assumed that it must have been a delivery for my dad. As the courier man was preparing the electronic signature machine-thingy I saw it. Those sexy bold letters on the side of the box, calling me seductively. O R L Y -  I gasped SO loud that the man jumped back and genuinely looked very bewildered. Awkward...

Do you know what I love about ORLY? They can take a classic idea such as pastels and completely turn it on its head. You wont find any streaky sherbet yellows, no sheer mint greens that'll end up probably unused and unloved in this collection (Ok, I actually like those last two types of polish but this collection is far more fun!)

Metallics are the furtherest thing in my mind when I think about pastels. Metallic pastels? How can the two marry together? Well.. I'm not sure how those little angels in the ORLY HQ managed it but they sure did because this collection oozes with sophistication and sexiness. Prepare to meet a pastel collection unlike any other! 

Huge thanks to my star Sophie and the ORLY team for sending this collection along for me to review and the beautiful and thoughtful card!

Just so you know.. this video resulted in my tea being filled with glitter rsequins!!


 Cyber Peach - A beautiful and warm peach cream, this is such a flattering colour on the nails. I am in love with this shade!


 Electric Jungle - I find it hard to describe this one.. I'd say its a cool and soft looking metallic silver grey with hints of blue/green that has a very delicate finish.

 


Pink Noise - A gorgeous and happy looking coral crème – something about this shade makes me think of beaches and summer – loving it!


Lilac City - This one I believe delivers more than its name suggests. Its certainly got some warm pink tones which work beautifully with the lilac metallic base.


Metallic Haze -A stunning off gold/taupe metallic, again it has such a beautifully soft look to its finish that makes it appear very delicate compared to some other metallic nail polishes. Doesn't it look silky?



Power Pastel - What pastel collection isn't complete with a pale pink shade? At a quick glance you could mistake Power Pastel as a white but it has just the perfect amount of pink to make it so unique. This is a delicate powder pink crème.


Once again I am thoroughly impressed with this collection, ORLY only ever seem to create perfection. I'll also add that I loved how these metallic shades had such a silky finish to them, I didn't have too much trouble with brush strokes which is a problem typically with metallic nail polish.

I had no issues with bubbling, streaking or application. They all applied like a dream, self leveled and dried in a good amount of time. In these pictures I am wearing two coats of polish and no top coat – the shine you are seeing on my nails comes purely from their colours.

What do you think of this collection? Is there a colour you like best?

Have a fantastic day my loves! I shall skip along to work. Thank you so much for visiting, I'll catch you again on Friday!


Love,
Ithi

  2. These colors are beautiful and the brand to me is new, I never heard of Orly. Do you know if this nail polish is one of the 5-Free brands? I am always on the hunt for non toxic nail polish.

    1. I think so too, Noelle! Actually they are much better than 5-free, they are 12-free! They really are a great brand to check out, if you are looking for healthier nail polish I suggest their Breathable range which has 18 shades.
