Orly Smoke Collection

Hi Beauties

I hope your pleased with last nights ‘One lovely blog award’ nominations, they were very hard nominations to make.

This morning I was browsing tumblr and I came across a lovely polish by Orly that was from the ‘Smoky Collection’, so i wanted to give you my throughs on the collection as a whole.

The first is ‘Smoked Out’ the name is quite deceiving as it brings to mind a black or grey toned polish, but ‘Smoked Out’ Is something else altogether, it is the most stunning deep green I have ever seen, in my opinion it’s still second to Revlon’s ‘Rain Forest’ but it is still an amazing colour, the metallic micro glitters give it a very mysterious look, like something out of a fairy tale.

‘Highlight’ is a pale grey shade that is perfect for the ultimate nude manicure, but in other respects it is a very basic shade, one to be worn with jeans, a T-shirt and your converse.

‘Darkest Shadow’ is another stunning polish, it has a deep base with copper and red glitters running throughout it. This polish is definitely different, to me this is the perfect shade for bonfire night it reminds me of the blazing orange bonfire against the smoky black night sky, love it.

Orly’s ‘Brush It On’ is to me a shade that is perfect for Halloween, ‘Brush It On’ is the perfect fall burnt orange shade it has a stunning orange base with burnt orange and silver glitter within it. I did a post on burnt autunm oranges with this polish would fit perfectly into, it looks like I’ve found my go to orange polish for fall 2015.

‘Edgy’ is again a pretty polish that couldn’t be better suited to the colder months, it has beautiful bronze and silver glitters that sit so perfectly on a deep brown toned base, ‘Edgy’ is perfect for both autumn and winter and for some reason reminds me of a snow covered wood.

‘Blend’ is a brown based purple shade, again this is one that reminds me of bonfire night but this time of the morning after when fog hangs thick in the air and everything appears to be covered in a faint purple haze, this is such a basic polish yet it is beautiful in its own right.

Ebay and Amazon are also great places to look for discount nail polish and nail art supplies. But you need to do your research as there are a lot of fakes of O.P.I and Essie.

I’ve also just become an AVON rep,  they have nail art supplies, tools, polishes, creams, lotions, show me some love and check out my personal brochure: http://www.avon.uk.com/PRSuite/custonlineOrderEBrochure.page?acNo=MTc5NzgzNTE=&source=RFlNQ1VSTA==&custRepOrdr=1
