Check out Orly’s most recent nail polish collection…Plastix!


I recently cut my nails down and was feelin’ super sad about how nubby-ish they looked.

I was super excited when I heard about this collection coming out. I’m not sure why because mattes polishes are getting a little annoying. We’ve seen so many different variations of them; vampy, velvet-y, shimmery…how could these be so different? These kiddos dry to a “semi-gloss” finish. So to my matte haters, could these make you start to like mattes? A little bit? Maybe? Let’s take a look.

Old School Orange reminds me of an orange Push Pop! Quite delicious and I love how it applied streak-free.

 
  
 

Viridian Vinyl has to be one of the most stunning blue-greens I have ever seen. This kid is just begging to be konad-ed.

  

Retro Red is not a true red, nor does it lean on the coral side. It almost reminds me of what would happen if you mixed a little bit of cream with red punch.

Purple Pleather is stunning. But then again I would say that considering I love just about every purple.
 

Well, what can I say that hasn’t already been said about matte polishes? I do like how these apply with minimal streak-age. I only applied 2 coats for each without a base and top (duh!) coat. I like them but I’m not in love. I think I’m over the matte trend. They are still beautiful nonetheless and are nice additions to my nail polish collection.

The must haves? Viridian Vinyl and Retro Red. I got these from TransDesign for $3.50 a pop.

Whatcha think? Had enough of the mattes or can you get down with these?

Your fellow nail polish junkie,

    Don't call those nubs. You have no right to claim of nubs

    Hahahaaaa! Don't let my long nail beds fool you. These are considered nubbies.

    These are all so pretty on you and I want to try them. I better put in my order or need to check my local sally's :)

    B, I really like these and the fact that it is a semi-shine matte just makes it that much better. I think I'm going to get the mini collection and wear it on my toes since Summer is slowly coming to an end.

    Nikki–Don't they? I wonder what their availability is like in your hood?

    rmcandlelight–Ohmigoodness, these would look stunning on your nails. I couldn't find it at Sally's here in the O. So online I had to go.

    Amour–Yep, these are fabulous summer colors!
