Orly Happy Go Lucky Collection Swatches

Good afternoon my lovelies!!

  For this post I wanted to show you guys my swatches of Orly's Happy Go Lucky Collection. This small group came out as their Back- to- School Collection. This quartet consists of Three fun and funky, almost neon, cremes and a too- cute- for- words shimmer.

  I was super excited to see these pretties being sold as a set of Four mini bottles. I really wanted this collection but for some reason I didn't feel like a whole big bottle of these was not necessary. Plus... I LOVE mini bottles. I have a goal of having a full Helmer drawer-full of minis. 
Above is the loveliness that is Frisky. This one is a true Cyan blue creme. It's a very bright and clean shade. This color dried the shiniest of the Four.

This is the edgy Fresh. I was the least excited about this one and it turned out to be my second favorite. It borders on being neon but it's not quite all the way there so it doesn't hurt my eyes to look at it. And I mean... Look at it! It's so refreshing!

This is Frolic. This one is a pretty Purple creme. The tone of Purple borders on the verge of neon but it is not neon which is why it still looks Purple (and not Blue) in the pic :).

And this is Flirty. This one is the only color in the collection which is not a creme finish. It is a Pink creme base with Silver micro sparkles floating around in it. This one also has that "almost neon" look to it as well.

  The formula for all these babies is superb. This is Orly at its finest. All Four colors were Two coaters. Even though all of these colors must have a bit of neon pigmentation the formula is beyond creamy and flows nicely. The reason why I assume there must be a bit of neon in these (besides the fact that they are bright as heck) is that they dry pretty dull. In all of these pictures I am not wearing any top coat so you guys could see how they dry to a satin like finish but very smooth. 

I'm happy with this group because I needed something a little different than all the Oranges and Yellows we got for the Summer season. I'm not ready for fall colors yet!! I wanna wear more of these babies!

Are u ready for fall polishes yet?

  6. Wow, these are beautiful! That last pink one is a lot prettier than I thought it'd be. I also love mini bottles. I'm supposed to be getting some OPI minis in the mail and I'm so excited, they are adorable. (:

  13. I love these polishes. I didn't think I would but I saw them in the store and HAD to have them!

    The formula on my Flirty was really bad. I'm hoping thinner will fix it because it is just about the most gorgeous pink I own!

  15. Love love love these! When I first saw swatches I just wanted Frolic, but when I saw them in person I grabbed Flirty and Frisky as well. They are so bright and cheery. I'm wearing Frisky now, and I can't stop staring at my nails. It's so pretty. :)
