I’m looking forward to the new Rescue Beauty fall polishes–lately I’ve been thinking about how great Pizzicato would be for this time of the year. Pizzicato is a whitish lavender color with white-silver shimmer. So I started looking around and thought that Zoya’s Marley might help tide me over until Pizzicato comes out.
I have one more polish from Orly’s Spring 2011 Precious Collection, Royal Velvet. This is the darkest of the six, a dark blueish purple with strong blue shimmer. It’s a pretty and dramatic color.
This is the polish that the girl in the Orly Precious Collection promo picture wears–she’s relaxing in some shady outdoor area and her nails glow with a gentle white color. I decided that I wanted to try it too! Pure Porcelain is a creamy, pinkish beige but it has a lot of white in it; it’s brighter than any of the other neutral polishes I have.
Here’s another polish from Orly’s Spring 2011 Precious Collection-this one is Fancy Fuchsia. I always have trouble spelling this word. I just looked it up on Wikipedia, and apparently it’s a German word pronounced differently in German, but the English pronunciation means that it’s often misspelled by English speakers. The ‘s’ is after the ‘ch’. It’s a really bright pink!
Orly’s Spring 2011 Precious collection has a nice mix of colors and finishes-there’s dark, dusky teal, jade green and bright pink cremes, frosty gold shimmer, neutral ivory-there’s bound to be a color in there to appeal to almost anyone. I chose two from the collection, and the first I have to show is Gilded Coral.
Orly Thorned Rose is a dark reddish-burgundy color, with a purple tone. It’s from Orly’s Spring 2010 collection, and I do think it’s a nice dark red for spring, since it leans more purple than brown.
I’ve really liked the colors that I tried from the Essie Winter 2010 collection so far. They’re dark but still vivid, and perfect for this time of the year. I have swatches of Going Incognito, Smokin’ Hot and Hot Coco below, but I’m sort of thinking of picking up Masquerade Belle as well!
This pretty blue shade is from Chanel’s Côte D’Azur Collection. It was first shown on the runway in St. Tropez in May, and immediately created a lot of interest and buzz. Although it was rumored to only be available in December, when I checked the Chanel website last week it was already up, and I quickly ordered my two bottles. It’s still available now on the Chanel website. The website also seems to actually be working, unlike when the Khakis appeared, and there was so much traffic that the website crashed.
There have already been a lot of reviews posted, and many of them have been very critical, complaining about the formula and the fact that the shimmer from the bottle is not as noticeable on the nail. I really like it though–I think it’s a lot more wearable than most light/pastel blues, since it’s a bit sheer and doesn’t seem stark or too white.
