Untried Mainstream - Orly High on Hope
Today I have an oldie from my collection. I've owned this one for a while. High on Hope was part of Orly's Spring 2013 collection, I found it on TJ Maxx a year later. And then it sat untried until January 2016 when I originally swatches this. So sad. Review and macro below/after the break.
Swatch is 2 coats with topcoat. High on Hope is described by Orly as a deep blue with pink shimmer. But if you look at the macro you can tell it's so much more than that. This is why Orly is my favorite mainstream brand. Occasionally, they'll put out gems like these. The base is sorta dusty navy blue creme and it has iridescent...almost multichrome micro flakes that shift from copper/gold to pink/purple. Just look at the macro! And there's even more shift in person. This was created in 2013! Let that sink in, years before indies where making these types of flakie finishes. And they say it's just a pink shimmer...tsk tsk tsk.
If you come across this beauty, pick it up! It's actually still easily available directly from Orly here, or from a few Amazon retailers.
