Accidental Eggplant Manicure


I didn't really have a plan for this manicure; I just thought these 2 colors would compliment each other nicely. I used Charlotte Russe Jade & Orly Galaxy Girl, two of my favorite colors. I was hoping that Jade would highlight the gorgeous shimmer in Galaxy Girl. I should have chosen a different way to use them together though. I randomly pulled out a smART Nails sticker stencil and got accidental eggplant nails! Still a pretty color combination.

Orly Space Cadet


This is 3 coats of Orly Space Cadet; it definitely needs a 4th coat. Very sheer, but gorgeous duochrome, purple & green foil. I was wearing a red shirt which is reflected in some of the photos.

Orly Galaxy Girl


This is 3 coats of Orly Galaxy Girl, my favorite from the Cosmic FX collection. It's a drop dead gorgeous, dark reddish purple with turquoise glass-fleck. The formula isn't the best. It's sheer yet thick, but worth the extra effort for this beauty. Galaxy Girl is darker than I normally love, but it never looks black because it's always flashing turquoise.

Orly Rio Nights & Some Nail Art


This is 3 coats of Orly Rio nights but I think it could have used a fourth coat. The formula is thin and sheer but still easy to work with. Nice, slightly reddish, purple creme color.


I used my beloved smART Nails stickers for this manicure and I really like the results. I used these before in one of my World Cup manicures. They functioned as gears for that one but here they are a fun twist on the half moon mani. I really want to use these on a sky blue background with a bright yellow for the moon so I can make a sunshine manicure. The accent color for this manicure was L.A. Girl Flare Dark Purple.

Orly - Enchanted Forest and Mirror Mirror

These two polishes come from Orly's Once Upon a Time... collection from last fall.

Enchanted Forest is a dark green creme. I thought this shade was going to be a bit lighter than it is. It looked too close to black most of the time on the nail. Still a nice color, just not what I was looking for.


Mirror Mirror is a light grey creme, with a slightly blue tone.



Here it is against a grey skirt of mine. You can see the blue tone to it better here.

This is one of the only polishes that April & I both purchased. Here is April wearing it with Konad plate M63.

I enjoyed this collection from Orly. If I'd had the money I would have bought them all (Minus pixie dust. I love cremes!).
