Orly Mini Swatches

orly-mini-collage

Back in 2014 during my "buy all the polish" phase, I got a bunch of Orly mini packs from TJ Maxx. I was in search of Orly Just Peachy. Anyone remember that? It was a beautiful, glittery peachy polish that Orly made and then for some reason only sold in limited quantities at discount stores like Marshalls and TJ Maxx. Everyone went crazy searching for it. Then it turned out to simply be a rebottled version of SpaRitual Wilderness (which is made by the same parent company). Eventually, Just Peachy made it's way into the Orly mini packs and I bought a few. No shame. Anyway, here's some swatches of the minis.

Pretty & Polished - Sunburn City Swatch and Review

pretty-and-polished-sunburn-city-swatch

Hi guys, today's post is a simple and short one. I know I haven't been posting much lately and I don't really have a good excuse other than...mental health issues that are wearing me down and making it hard for me to find the motivation to do much. Anyway, today's swatches are of a fun little extra polish you get when you order the complete Bummer Summer collection from Pretty and Polished that I reviewed on my last post, you can check it out here. I didn't have this one when I originally swatched those but I got it last week so here it is.

Pretty and Polished - Bummer Summer - Swatches and Review

pretty-and-polished-bummer-summer-collage

Today I have the Pretty and Polished Bummer Summer Collection to show you guys. It's 4 polishes themed for those of us who hate summer. Ok so I don't hate it but as an adult it's not my favorite season. I do like the long break from school but I wish it were in winter instead. As I grow older the things that I used to love about summer I know really dislike, lazy days by the pool now mean being on high alert making sure the kids follow rules and don't hurt themselves. Quick beach escapes now mean packing a car full of things, food, towels, clothes, toys, blankets, chairs, umbrellas, etc. Playing all day outside now means forcing the kids to drink water, tons of icky bug spray and having to hear them complain about how hot it is and how they'd rather be indoor watching tv. You can't win. And don't get me started on buying a swimsuit...give me a large shirt and shorts please.

Anyway, enough about me rambling. Swatches, review and the video review below!

Orly PCH - Swatches and Review


You guys...I've had these swatches for like a month now. Ugh. How can I have so much stuff going on when I really don't ave anything mayor going on at the same time? Just basic, boring, adulting and parenting taking up all my time. I enrolled my youngest in pre-school for fall today...I guess that's a milestone of sorts. I'm trying not to think about it. Anyway, nail polish and stuff. Orly has another neon collection for summer. Yeah I know, they do almost every year but still, they are pretty. Check below for the swatches, review, and swatch video (now with voice over, oooooh!).
