Orly Holiday Soiree Collection for Holiday 2011 Swatches & Review
Ready for some more holiday goodies?
Orly Holiday Soiree brings in the season with an icy white, bright red jelly, some awesome metallics and a fun glittery black. There is one missing here which I passed on. It’s a deep, basically black blue creme called Le Chateau.
Au Champagne is a pale icy white with shimmer. I am totally in LOVE with the way this color looks on my nails. It’s such a soft pretty shade of white and the formula was like butter. It’s a little on the sheer side. I only used two coats here but could have used three for more opacity. This is such a great holiday and winter color!
Ma Cherie is a bright red jelly. Super shiny, super red! Because it’s a jelly it’s on the sheer side so even with three coats you can see my nail line. But it’s still a really nice fun color, if not completely original.
Ingenue is a pink/purple metallic with massive gold shimmer. This doesn’t feel all that unique but it’s still pretty. It was on the sheer side and I needed three coats for full coverage.
Oui is another metallic with gold shimmer, but the base is a deep purple. This one is stunning, I love it and don’t have another one like it. Such nice depth and the purple and gold look really nice together. This was also sheer like Ingenue, so I used three coats.
Androgynie is a slightly smoked out black base with small silver and gold glitter and larger hexagonal multi-colored glitter. This one is pretty but kind of a pain. The larger glitter tends to want to stay on the bottom of the bottle so you have to shake it A LOT before applying. I didn’t do this as much as I should have, so you don’t see a lot of the larger glitter on my nails (you can see it better in the second photo). The formula is a little on the sheer side, so I needed three coats for coverage. I like it, but it’s not as user friendly as I would have liked.
I liked this collection! My favorites were Au Champagne, Oui and Androgynie. I also liked the other two but felt they weren’t as unique.
