ORLY Desert Muse Fall 2020


*press sample

Hello lovelies! My kids have been back in school for a couple weeks now (!!!) and it feels so good to be back on a schedule again! I have been getting a lot accomplished around that house. Maybe I'll get more blogging done too? My two year old is still an absolute terror though, so I'm not counting on it. 

ORLY has released a Fall collection that consists of six cremes. The formulas were all perfectly smooth and easy to work with. I recommend this whole collection if the color story is up your alley. Let's look at the swatches..

August Polish Pickup 2020: Weird Science

I'm getting this out late because I've been on vacation. But as August's Polish Pickup ends tomorrow, there's no time like the present! So please forgive my incomplete post, but enjoy the swatches!

by Dany Vianna Carbonation is a dark brown jelly base with holo flakes and white hex glitters. Shown is two coats plus top coat. Price: $11.50 250 cap (US)/20 (UK)

Different Dimension It's Electrifying is a purple to pink multichrome magnetic polish with blue/purple/pink iridescent flakies. Shown is two coats plus top coat.

Great Lakes Lacquer Can We Not Right Now? is a red leaning violet with pink/red/orange/green iridescent flakes and scattered holo. Shown is two coats plus top coat. No cap.

Indie by Patty Lopes Dark Experiments. is a sheer gray crelly with red round glitters, iridescent flakies, and more. This is a very sheer base and you won't get full opacity. Shown is three coats plus top coat.

Indie by Patty Lopes Meet Me in Montauk is a topper with blue/purple/pink/green shifting aurora shimmer with multichrome flakies and holo pigment. Shown is one coat over ORLY Gotta Bounce.

KBShimmer He Slimed Me! is a neon green jelly with gold/green shifting flakies and micro holo flakes. Shown is three coats plus top coat.

Rogue Lacquer Rainbow Ice Ice Baby is a creamy white base with a rainbow of metallic flakes. Shown is two coats plus top coat.

Rogue Lacquer Take It Off Soy Based Nail Polish Remover is just what the name suggests. This was a first more me, I've only ever used acetone to remove polish. It doesn't dissolve the polish nearly as quickly as pure acetone, but this is a great non-toxic alternative. It's also hydrating for your skin and cuticles. It’s very lightly scented with a tart margarita, grapefruit, and cherries, and is in a travel size 2.0 oz bottle.

Zombie Claw Water Bear is a sheer light pink base with red/gold/blue/green aurora shimmer and delicate holo shimmer. Shown is three coats plus top coat. Price: $13

These items will be available for a limited time ending August 10th through
