Spring 09: Orly Carnivale Collection Swatches
Orly introduces two collections this spring, Carnivale and Prepster. Carnivale is a release inspired by the vibrance and energy of Brazil's colorful Carnivale festival.
Six new shades debut in the Carnivale collection. Bold pops of Fuschia, purple and orange for us craving some color and peach and pinks for those to tame it down.
Overall, this is a nice mixture of brights and lights to the Spring edition. Maybe not the most unqiue, but certainly pretty.
I found most shades to be pretty sheer. All my swatches were done with three coats including the lighter colors. No problems with the formulas.
Check out all the pictures below.
Confetti is a light pink french creme that's a great everyday shade. I usually don't line pink french colors, but confetti just popped with my skintone.
Bongo Beat, the only shimmer from the Carinvale collection, a light pink with blueish purple iridescent shimmer.
Festival Lights is a nice light peach shade that looks good with all skintones.
Chica Boom is a great color to sport around this summer, a bright orange tangerine creme.
Samba - a magenta pink creme.
Rio Nights was my favorite from this collection. It's a perfect shade of purple that's not too light nor to dark. A great color for those tootsies too!
Orly's Carnivale collection is now available Head2Toe, Sallys and other retailers.

Hey, thanks for the swatches. I was looking at the first one confetti? You said it's kind of sheer and takes multiple coats. I have searched your site have you had any success finding an opaque light pink or beige with Orly? Thanks!!

Hi Nessa, I love shimmers too! I miss seeing them this spring :) Hi Lizzie, I agree! They'd look hot on toes! Love the bright colors! Hi Mytwocents, Yeah, but most of this collection was kinda sheer. It takes three thick coats to be opaque. Unfortantely, I don't have many light colors shades. I really did like Confetti. :)
