Orly Color I.D. 2

Orly has introduced another Color I.D. collection; colors that are supposed to “beautify and enhance natural skin tones.”

The colors are (l-r): Truly Tangerine, Fabulous Flamingo, Lovely Lilac, Precisely Poppy, Beautiful Blush and Wonderful Wisteria

I’ve always considered myself light medium/medium but that lilac color does not appeal to me at all. I’ve tried lilacs before and they make me look deathly. Maybe they should have split the collection into two parts, one for warm skin tones and one for cool skin tones. I love to wear corals like Precisely Poppy but, that’s because I’m warm. I don’t know that the same color would work on a cool skin tone.

What do you think of the shade meant for your skin tone?

    I am a light-medium and that lilac shade is one of my best colors. I consider mysef cool toned, but Perscriptives tested me as a rO, which is warm. Basically, the pink in my skintone throws me off. But the lilac and Wysteria shades are great for me in the Spring. OPI Wyatt Earple Purle is a holy grail for me, and it also looks good on my warm toned co-worker. I think it depends on the pinkness in addition to the base tone of your skin.

    I’m between Medium/Medium Deep and i don’t like either choice, especially the light pink one. Trade you for the lilac polish.

    I would be a fair. However, as I am on the ivory (shallow) side, not on the pinkish, blue-based one, for which this chart was obviously made, I do not think I could pull off Truly Tangerine very well…
