I’M HIDING FROM YOU AND YOUR SOUL OF ICE
Posted on October 18, 2012 by Teresa Cannata'
Halloween has not even arrived, but nail polish companies are already gearing up for Christmas and the holiday season. I must admit holiday collections are always super-exciting because they include many shades of red (the festive colour par excellence) and lots of glitters!
I’ve got my eyes on a collection in particular, Naughty or Nice by Orly. I’ve immediately felt drawn to it because it features exactly what I love the most – two great red shades (one sparkly and one creme) and silver sparkles. I’m not a great collector of Orly nail polishes, but the ones I own are excellent in quality and colour; for this reason, I wouldn’t mind finding one of these Christmas-inspired polishes in my stocking 😉
The shades above are Torrid (a rich metallic burgundy), Miss Conduct (magenta with silver holo-effect glitters), Angel Eyes (a mix of small blue and silver holo-effect glitters), Devil May Care (a mix of small red and gold holo-effect glitters), Halo (a mix of gold and silver glitters) and Unlawful (a classic shiny red). One must give Orly credit for making a holiday collection which doesn’t include a metallic or glitter green shade, which seems obiquitous in most holiday releases. Here you can find some swatches: it’s quite safe to say that I’m hopelessly in love with Angel Eyes and Halo; I also like Devil May Care, but I’m not excited about it as I am for the other two colours.
Orly nail polishes are 3-free because they don’t contain DBP, Toluene or Formaldehyde. One of the strongest points of their bottles is the rubber grip handle, which makes application easier than ever.
