Regular readers may know I like mini polishes like Mavala because I find it very hard to finish a polish so a dinky one is enough for me. Orly Mini Nail Polishes are just 5.3ml each but are rather nifty and come in 50 colours! The shade I have here is Terracota, a bright orange based red: Their size means they fit perfectly into pockets and handbags, ideal for girls on the go. The collection […]
I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Greens! Orly Polishes I do like – I don’t think I’ve found a “killer” shade by them yet BUT, I love the texture which is quite thin – makes it easy for me to apply. It also seems to be generously sized! Green Apple has more attitude than a minty green, I think, it has more POW! I’m […]
I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Oranges! Orly as I have mentioned before is (I think) an easy polish to apply because of it’s slightly runny texture.

Hell yes! Think […]
I love orange on the nails, its not too brash but still quite fun and juicy. I really like Orly polish! I prefer ones with a more liquid texture: Excuse my cuticles – they are still recovering *sniff* Like this polish or is orange not for you?
Green polish – is it every a good idea? I certainly think its a cute shade to wear and green is my favourite colour! It does depend on the shade though…. Orly’s polish in Green Apple is a clean, fresh juicy green. I think its cute enough to wear for the summer – what do you think?
Please excuse my poor dry cuticles! Here is a beautiful sunny yellow for summer: Orly’s nail polish in Hook Up is a summery yellow and my current favourite for summer. It looks odd for some reason when my nails are really long but on short neat nails, it looks great! What do you think of yellow polish?
My nails of the day – I am wearing Orly Sweet Collection Nail polish in Cotton Candy: Its a very pretty peachy pink. This is my first nail polish from Orly and I like! The texture was easy to apply and the colour is lovely: Yay or Nay?
