Fall 09: Orly Once Upon a Time Collection
Orly introduces a new release this Fall called, Once Upon a Time. A collection that's themed around fairly tales, wishes, and making our nail polish dreams come true with six fabulous colors.
If your looking for unique and unusual shades, tune in, because you'll love this new collection from Orly.
This was totally unexpected for fall and I'm digging it. Green, Grays, and Brown - what more can nail polish fanatics ask for!
Application: The formula was pretty good on most of these, packed with color and opaqueness. Pixie Dust was the only shade that needed three coats.
Check em' out!
Prince Charming is a brownish taupe creme that resembles another one we've seen this summer, Over the Taupe from OPI's Summer Brights collection. Not being exact dupes, Prince Charming is tad bit more brown.
Enchanged Forest, a deep forest green creme. Not as dark as some blackened greens we've seen, such as, Zoya's Envy. The slight hint of blue makes this one special from the others.
Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest gray of all, I am, I am! Described as a true light grey creme. This is a perfect light gray, I love it.
Rescue Beauty Lounge's Concrete Jungle is similar, but just a tad more blue than Mirror, Mirror.
Pixie Dust is one of my faves from the collection, a grayish blue with silver shimmer. Very unique and gorgeous!
Poison Apple, an apple red with slight orange undertones. I'm not a big fan of reds, but the muted orange gave this a little kick that I liked.
Happily Ever After, berry pink with subtle hot pink shimmer. The shimmer is extremely subtle, almost non existent if looking directly at it.
Orly's Once Upon a Time collection should be available August 1st at Head2Toe Beauty, Transdesign and Sally Beauty Stores. Have a wonderful day!

Wow, swatches! Yay, thanks! I like 'Happily Ever After'. I thought it was nothing special when I saw the bottle, but it's really pretty!!! Great! I think this is the only one I want!

Pixie Dust and Enchanted Forest are the ones I'll be buying from this collection. Usually Orly doesn't seize any lemmings for me, but this one did! I think your nails are as cute as a button, by the way! :) As usual, I'll be back to check out your next update. Keep up the great work - you're one of my favourite nail-polish bloggers.

I will be buying the whole collection. I will buy it just for the name alone. I adore fairy tales so I have to have this. I love Enchanted Forest, any chance of this being a dupe for Nars Zulu? Pixie Dust is adorable and I love Prince Charming.

I really like the Poison Apple. In fact I like all of them! This collection is a must have! Thank you for posting these swatches. I was looking for swatches of this collection for a while.
