Amor de Lacquer: Orly’s Foil FX and Sweet Collections

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.



“I was walking along, minding my business,
When out of an orange-colored sky,
Flash! Bam! Alakazam!
Wonderful you came by.”

I grew up on Nat King Cole and one of my favorite songs by him is “Orange Colored Sky”. I swear I started singing it when I first saw Orly’s Foil FX collection.

I know what you’re thinking. Something is missing right? Yep! I snagged 2 of Foil FX’s 3 polishes and 1 of 6 from the Sweet collection. I can explain. Watch this!


The color missing from the Foil FX collection is Rage; a rusty rose foil. It didn’t tickle my fancy so I passed on it. What was left from the collection were these two wonders.

Shine is amazing! This polish is seriously a must have. This is the foil-est polish I own. I got so many compliments when I wore it. While nothing can compare to getting your nails Minx-ed with silver foil, Shine ain’t too far behind.

 
  
 

Luxe is GOLD! Really really gold. It isn’t as bling-y as I wanted it to be but it is still a great foil. I’m not a fan of most gold polishes but this has enough shine power to keep me happy.

 
  

 The formula on the Foil FX polishes are impeccable. You can get complete coverage in a good 2 coats. I did 3 on these, though…just because I like to push it to the limit. Enormous fan of this collection, Orly!

Now of the 6 polishes in Orly’s Sweet collection, Snowcone was the only one that I really wanted. The other 5 were quite tempting but not terribly unique.

Snowcone is a blue yummy-lusciousness! Now that I’m looking at it, it may a dupe to Zoya’s Yummy.

 
I did have an incentive for buying this though. Each of the polishes in this collection come with a gloss.
I put mine on my keychain!
 
It’s a clear gloss but is surprisingly moisturizing and perfect for on the go.

That’s the thing about Orly. There are such a unique polish company. You’ve got the rubberized handles, cool polish names and you never know what cute little knick-knack you’re going to get with your polish.

I got these from Head2ToeBeauty.com for $3.50 a bottle.

    Y'know, I thought I was going to love Rage the most out of that collection, and although it is really pretty, I liked the silver and gold better! Foil FX was a lovely collection though :)
    I only got the minty colored one from Sweet, and that was really pretty too. These all look great on you!

    That gold looks great on you!! I actually never picked up any of the recent orlys :(

  • Askmewhats

    Shine is definitely a favorite! I own a similar gold polish from local brand, I'm not a fan of it too! but SHINE!!! WOW!

  • Colette

    I haven't tried any of the lipglosses that came with my Sweet polishes … I think I'm worried I'll fall in love & then run out & be unable to get more LOL =)

    I'm not a big biiiig fan of bling-y polishes, but the silver one is nice! I'll give a check at my Sally's.

    Snowcone stole my heart! perect for spring!
