As I may have mentioned a few times, I am in love with the nail polishes from ORLY, as even for someone hopeless with nail polish the polishes always give a nice result. So I was happy when I was asked to trial the new *ORLY Smokey Collection;

What They Say:

"All ORLY colours are 4 free – free from DBP, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Tolulene. Each ORLY nail lacquer bottle delivers a vibrant, chip resistant formula while the brush glides smoothly on nails without clumping or streaking for maximum impact and colour density."

RRP: $18.95 each (18ml) – Available from select pharmacies and salons and Orly Online

What I Say:
This new ORLY Smokey collection is a limited edition collection that takes a trip to the dark size with shades and hues that are inspired by an essential and smokey eye. The collection contains six shades which are "reminiscent of secret night time adventures and moonlit city rendezvous."
The collection contains a blend of shimmers and crèmes with a mix of matte and gloss finishes.
The Collection includes:
  • Highlight: Grey Crème
  • Edgy: Antique Bronze Shimmer
  • Darkest Shadow: Black with Red Shimmer
  • Brush it On: Rose Bronze Duo Chrome Shimmer
  • Blend: Warm Taupe Crème
  • Smoked Out Dark Green Matte Shimmer
All the colours in the collection look amazing, but my only issue is that the collection has been launched here in Australia in the end of August, at the start of spring, and I find the colours more suitable for autumn and winter. However in saying that, I personally also wear darker nail polishes during summer, and I am happy to continue wearing them next autumn and winter too!
I tried the colours Blend and Highlight, and both colours are stunning. The polishes are easy to apply and even the grey crème which is a light colour goes on smoothly and streak-free and with two coats more than sufficient.

Used with a top coat, I get about 4 days wear of the nail polish before it starts to wear and chip at the edges, but that is with washing my hands very frequently, and also bathing my little boy nightly so personally I think that is a great wear. And I love ORLY nail polishes not only because they are ‘4-free’, but also because they are so easy to apply evenly and streak-free.
At $18.95 I find the price for the ORLY polishes very reasonable too, both considering the high quality of the polish, but also considering the large 18ml bottle, which I do believe is one of the biggest on the market!

What about you, what do you think of this new range from ORLY? Which colour(s) do you like the most? And what do you think of wearing dark colours during spring and summer?
