Orly – Bling

ORLY - Bling [the daily varnish]It was love at first promo image. I had a total Carrie Bradshaw moment: Hello, Lover. Gold. Holo. Glitter. Bling was meant for me. On the whole, the Orly Holiday Sparkle collection is VERY impressive: holo glitter dust, bar glitter, hex glitter – well done, ORLY.

The gold best friend of Mirrorball, Bling is a holographic sparkly delight. Super fine holographic gold glitter suspended in a clear base. You can wear it as a topper or all on it’s own. I really appreciate that it only took three coats to reach an opaque look I was happy with.

I’ve been wearing this polish on and off for a few weeks, but it’s going to be SO perfect for the holidays. My mom said, “Oh! I like your nails. They look just like New Years Eve!” She’s adorable.

Be sure to check out Alli’s posts on Mirrorball, Glitterbomb, and Steal the Spotlight.

The Orly Sparkle Collection is available at Ulta  for $8.00. If you’re on the fence, Ulta is currently running a Buy 2 Get 1 Free promo for Orly polishes!

Check out my swatches below & have a bling-tastic day!

Barielle Midnight in Paris

Barielle Midnight in Paris COVER If there is one store I should avoid it is World Market. I mean, it has EVERYTHING I buy too much of. Candles. Wine. Foreign food items. Kitchen products. Glass wear. Soap. Throw pillows. It’s literally the best store ever. But I found myself in World Market the other day and spotted the most perfect […] Continue reading →

China Glaze Choo-Choo Choose You

China Glaze Choo-Choo Choose You COVER Y’all, I am obsessed with this nail polish. The China Glaze All Aboard collection for fall 2014 didn’t immediately impress me. I actually passed on all the polishes for quite a long time. But when I was browsing holiday collection I saw Choo-Choo Choose You from their fall collection and just had to try it. […] Continue reading →

deborah lippmann – Weird Science

deborah lippmann - weird science Fantastical. Deborah Lippmann’s Winter 2014 collection is daring, dreamy, and perfectly Deborah Lippmann. It’s so beautifully unique. A chartreuse for winter? Sure, why not! I fell in love with the idea behind this collection after watching this video. Bewitching. Mystical. Mesmerizing. I couldn’t have said it better. It has been so long since I’ve been […] Continue reading →

1960’s Nails

1960's Nails I find nail polish trends to be fascinating. I did a post on 1920’s nails when The Great Gatsby film came out and enjoyed reading about what was considered in at the time and why. My foray into 1960’s nails didn’t come due to a film but because of Halloween. This year I went as […] Continue reading →
