Orly Spring 2016 Melrose Collection Swatches and Review

Orly Spring 2016 "Melrose" collection

Orly Spring 2016 “Melrose” collection

During a recent #NailGlossip we discussed which upcoming collections we are excited for in 2016, and someone mentioned Orly Melrose and I was all, “O RLY?” A quick search for promo images had me looking forward to it as well. I mean, they had me at holo… glitter. What surprised me is that the colors are even more bold and saturated than the bottle shade implies. Check it!

OPI Hello Kitty nail polish collection

When I first heard about the OPI Hello Kitty collection last summer I sighed and thought, “Here come ALL THE PINKS!” If you know me, and by now I assume most of you do, you know pink is not my taste.

Especially since this is my last week of regular classes and I have a big speech to give tomorrow morning. I’m not the best public speaker, so I’m hoping that a festive manicure will give me confidence to get through it and ready for some weekend fun!

Choosing a color wasn’t hard. You know how I’ve been begging China Glaze to #BringBackGlassFleck, so when the Cheers! Holiday 2015 collection showed up, I immediately zeroed in on Don’t Get Elfed Up’s sparkly flecks. Could this be the glass-fleck I’ve been dreaming of?
