Orly Bloom Spring 2010 Collection Swatches and Review

Afternoon ya’ll!

The site is back up and running after a snafu this morning!

Orly has a new collection for spring 2010 called Bloom, and I have a few of the colors for you today.

The formula is fantastic on all these. Creamy, opaque, smooth and just two coats on all. Check them out below.

Blushing Bud

Blushing Bud is a bright, cool pink creme. It’s super duper pretty with my skin, and I actually really like it. Makes me JONES for spring in a big way!

Wild Wisteria

Wild Wisteria is a really dark grape purple creme. This one would tend to look “black-ish” in low lighting, but I still think it’s very pretty.

Wandering Vine

Wandering Vine is a medium green creme. What I like about this color is that it’s not so dark it looks black. There’s no mistaking, it’s straight-up green! Reminds me of the felt on a pool table. :)

There are three others in this collection which I don’t have. They are:

Ginger Lily – Burnt orange shimmer

Thorned Rose – Dark red creme

Pure Petunia – Mauve creme

Spring has sprung (in nail polish land anyway)!

I have tons of new spring collections to show you, if the sun would just cooperate and come out on the weekend so I could actually swatch!

      Hi rijaH,

      Thank you!

  • January 4, 2010

    These are awesome and I am so glad that they’re not pastels for spring. Yea!

    • January 4, 2010

      Hi Sonya,

      Yeah I think China Glaze’s pastels rocked, and I don’t need any others! :)

  • January 4, 2010

    i love these colors! where can i buy them online? 😛

    • January 4, 2010

      Hi Andrea,

      They should be at the regular e-tailers now or soon. Try Head 2 Toe Beauty or Transdesign.

    Blushing Bud is my favorite of all of these. They all look so pretty on your fingertips! I’m somewhat envious of that. :)

      Hi PolishedPrude,

      Thanks! I am lucky in that my skin tone goes with just about anything that isn’t warm/orange. I can dye my hair pretty much any color also, as long as it’s not warm toned (like golden blonde looks horrific on me!) :)

    Beautiful colors!

    I have Pure Petunia, Blushing Bud, and Wandering Vine. I HAVE to get Wild Wisteria! It’s so pretty, Ginger Lily and Thorned Rose are my wishlist too though :]

    I love these, and they all look amazing on you. I’ll get over my hate for the name Orly and purchase this collection 😛

    Hi! I’m liking all these colors! Looks like you were one of the lucky ones to try out Wandering Vine, and it is cool! I was wondering how ‘Wild Wisteria’ compares to ‘OPI- Sapphire in the Snow’? They look similar but I don’t have both to compare. I hope you can let me know! And as usual, thanks for the great swatches!

  • January 4, 2010

    Also, what is the drying time like on this collection? I’ve had bad luck with Orly’s drying time. Anyone else? After 3+ hours mine were still tacky and would pick up sheet/clothes marks! AHH!

    • January 5, 2010

      Hi Em,

      I have no problems with Orly dry time. I used Nubar’s Foundation base coat and Diamont top coat and never have issues.

      I want to say that OPI Sapphire In The Snow is a little more blue (or blurple) and slightly darker, but I haven’t compared them actually on my nail next to each other yet.

  • January 4, 2010

    I adore Blushing Bud! It’s definitely very springy, and the formula looks perfect too.

    Wild Wisteria is gorgeous, I am a little sad that it would look blackish in low lighting though

    Fab swatches as usual, Kelly. You make me want everything! :) Orly rocks! I’m pretty much decided to get all of these.

  • January 4, 2010

    I love Wild Wisteria although the Wandering Vine looks similar to a color from the Once Upon a Time Collection I think. Could you do a comparison post? Gracias!

    Hope your New Year is off to a great start!

    • January 5, 2010

      Hi Yaya,

      There wasn’t a dark purple in the Once Upon A Time Collection, actually!

      Happy New Year!

  • January 5, 2010

    Yes! I’ve been waiting for decent swatches of Wild Wisteria and Wandering Vine! Now I want them even more. :) I liked Enchanted Forest, but it was just a little too dark/blackened for my taste. So glad to see that Wandering Vine is a TRUE forest green cream!

    Will you also be posting swatches of the spring collections from China Glaze, OPI, and Barielle?

    • January 5, 2010

      Hi Kelsey,

      I already posted China Glaze spring ones. And yes, I’ll be posting OPI and Barielle as well!

  • January 5, 2010

    I am not too excited about this one…Wandering Vine might be the most interesting one out of the collection. Well I’ll wait and see lol

  • January 5, 2010

    I wasn’t expecting to like Blushing Bud, but I do! Wild Wisteria looks really similar to Sapphire in the Snow, so I probably won’t be getting that one.
    Thanks for swatching! I’m excited to see the other spring collections. -7 degree wind chill will do that to you!

  • January 5, 2010

    These look phenomenal! How similar are orly wild wisteria, zoya pinta and OPI sapphire in the snow?

  • January 5, 2010

    These are great! I really like Wild Wisteria and Wandering Vine.

    These are pretty but not really incredible I think. I’m very curious about Ginger Lily though.

    Blushing Bud is a great color. I really like the look of it.
