I received several beautiful shades of Orly Nail Color to review. I received three colors from the Once Upon A Time Collection and three colors from its Sweet Collection. Orly nail lacquers are different than most nail colors because they are free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin. "For over 33 years, in over 66 countries, ORLY nail care products have been the manicurist’s choice for nail strength, adhesion, wearability, dry time and shine." I was also impressed with Orly's award winning cap. "Professional results are at your fingertips with ORLY’s award-winning Gripper Cap™. This patented, rubberized cap provides ease of opening and flawless performance, and is exclusive to ORLY products." It's easy to understand why "ORLY has been recognized by the professional beauty industry with 12 ABBIES awards, along with many awards from trade and consumer magazines, and is one of the top nail care brands searched on the internet."
From the Sweet Collection I got Lemonade (a nice yellow color), Snowcone (a pretty blue), and Pixy Stix (a bold pink). I really liked this collection for many reasons. I liked it because each of the colors has a nice name that makes me think of food. I also liked the colors because they do resemble the name. I'm also a fan of this collection because each bottle came with a little tube of lip glass that is similar to the shade of nail color!
"Be swept away to a faraway land with ORLY’s Once Upon a Time color collection. Be the fairest one of all with the creamy grey of Mirror Mirror. All of your wishes will come true when you find your Prince Charming. This whimsical palette of dramatic reds, deep greens and enchanting greys will have you living Happily Ever After." From this wonderful collection I got Poison Apple (a vibrant red), Mirror Mirror (a lovely silver/grey), and Prince Charming (a nice brown). I liked this collection because each bottle came with a cute little charm attached that is representative of the color. The Prince Charming has a crown and Mirror Mirror has a hand-held mirror. My favorite shade I received was the Poison Apple and it had a wonderful apple that had a bite taken out of it! I especially liked this color because I tend to use reds and pinks on nails and this looks perfect for my nails! Here is a rough picture of the Poison Apple on my toe nails!
