Fresh from Orly! Happy Go Lucky!

Orly Happy Go Lucky

Happy Go Lucky is really what this new collection from Orly is all about!
Four fresh colors that are bound to draw a smile on your face ... and nails :)
"Fresh" green, "Flirty" pink, "Frisky" Turquoise and a happy purple called "Frolic".
The formula on all colors is really smooth, but is kinda streaky on the green, blue and purple. So to fix that little glitch, you'll need to apply two coats.
As for the pink, it's perfect! Not a bit streaky and can go on really well in only one coat.
I also love the pink for the little shimmer in it! I'm just silly mad for anything shimmery!

Balboa Beach Bunny from BB Couture

Balboa Beach Bunny

You might have already noticed how I love to wear nail polish that reminds me of fruits!
I can't help but associate the colors with fruits ... what can I do!?
Well, today I'm dreaming of Blueberries and Grapes.

Saloon Girl from BB Couture

Saloon Girl from BB Couture

Sometimes words cannot describe the beauty of something ... and this goes for BB Couture's Saloon Girl nail polish from their Wild West collection.
So, I only have a couple of things to say about it, the color is that of Bougainvillea on a spring morning! (I took the photo above this morning in my garden)
I used two coats to get that perfect red pink shimmery shade.

It's simply beautiful and makes you want to spend the day lazying around in the garden sipping something fruity, cold and fizzy! I know I do!

Venture Into The Forest with BB Couture's Eve!

BB Couture Eve

One of the strangest green colors I've come across is BB Couture's Eve from their Infamous Lovers collection.
At first, I thought it was a murky brownish/ blackish color ... but when I looked closer, in the light, I found out it was a dark forest green (hence the title!), a bit darker than olive green actually, and full of multi colored glitter.
To get to that intended shade, you need two to three coats.
It tends to get a tad bit rough on the surface, but that's nothing some top coat can't fix!
