Orly Color AMP’D Nail Lacquer

Orly Color Ampd

Orly Color AMP’D is a new line of 36 shades sold exclusively at Target stores this spring.

These have a new Flexible Color and Flexible Sealcoat which is supposed to give you salon results without a UV light involved and no special remover. The “smudge-fixing” formula is self-leveling, and it supposedly self-corrects minor dings and dents. The formula “contains shock absorbing polymers allowing the finish of your manicure to bounce back, remain elastic and flex with the nail, reducing chipping. This advanced system wears for up to a week, about 88% longer than traditional manicures. The color and sealcoat fuse together to create a durable, scratch resistant, high-shine finish that dries in less than 8 minutes. That’s 60% faster than traditional nail polish. To make application even easier, we’ve designed a higher bristle count brush that’s specifically shaped to fit the cuticle.”

All swatches are two coats and shown with the Flexible Sealcoat on top.

Orly Smoky Collection for Fall 2014

Orly Smoky Collection

The Orly Smoky Collection for fall 2014 has arrived, are you ready to see the beauty?

This collection features six new shades. Most have a super shimmery, sparkly finish but there are a couple great cremes as well. Here is what they say about the inspiration for the collection “Travel to the dark side of beauty this fall with Smoky, the fall 2014 collection from ORLY. Beauty emerges from the shadowy corners of the imagination, seducing with an enigmatic palette that comes alive as eyes adjust to the light. Dusty tones are blended with matte shimmers creating an alluring and intriguing mix of hues inspired by shades worn on the smokiest of eyes.”

For the most part the formula was really great with all six of these colors. Most were just two coats to cover completely and I didn’t have any problems with any of them.

Orly Blush for Spring 2014

Orly Blush

Welcome to the wonderful world of Orly Blush for spring 2014.

This collection features six new soft, delicate shades including cremes, shimmers and a pearl. It’s kind of a nice change of pace from the usual bright shades or pastels we have seen a lot of for spring. The shimmery shades here are particularly gorgeous.

As far as formula things were pretty darn good. I only used two coats for most of the shades, and no other issues came up while applying them.
