ORLY S.A launched a new Festive 2018 Collection called Deep Wonder just in time for Christmas. The Deep Wonder Collection is inspired by lustrous futuristic party wear, the collection fuses the fantastical with the cosmically mysterious. This strikingly bold palette merges dark shimmers and luminous finishes with a few distinctive twists on the classic holiday reds and mauve crèmes. The collection includes six festive colours, namely Mystic Maven (a purple mauve crème), Wild Wonder (a berry mauve crème), Cosmic Crimson (a brick red shimmer), Lucid Dream (a rose gold shimmer), Nebula (a grape metallic shimmer) and Retrograde (a forest green duo chrome).
I received two nail polishes from the range Mystic Maven and Cosmic Crimson. I love the names of each shade, so out of this world 😊. I’m a nail polish/art addict but this was my very first time using ORLY nail polishes, I was kinda hoping to receive the entire collection so that I could create some Christmas nail art with the more festive colours in the collection but I am happy with the two shades that I received.
The nail polishes are housed in a big 18ml see through bottle, with black text, a rubber grip cap that has ‘ORLY’ embossed on the top. The patented and award-winning Gripper Cap™ continues to be the professional choice for easy opening and precision performance so there’s no need to bite open the cap with your teeth which I’m guilty of doing. The cap doesn’t slip out of the hands when applying on the nail polish, I’ve had caps slip and fall while applying on nail polish and mess everywhere so I’m in love with this gripper cap it makes opening up the bottle and applying on the nail polish effortless.
Not only is the cap amazing but ORLY’s 600 bristle brush has a shape that fans out to fit the cuticle perfectly allowing for a smooth, even and beautiful finish. I have short nails as it’s difficult to grow them so with just one swipe with the flat 600 bristle brush I get a perfect even coat on my nails.
Let me tell you more about the gorgeous shades that I received:
- Mystic Maven: Is a pretty purple mauve crème that works with any look. It is highly pigmented so only one coat is needed but two coats offer full and even coverage and it is fast-drying. It has a beautiful glossy finish.
- Cosmic Crimson: Is a stunning brick red shimmer and is great for all occasions. It is highly pigmented so one coat is perfect but two coats offer a full and even coverage. It is also fast-drying and has a beautiful glossy shimmery almost metallic finish.
Both have a perfect consistency not too thick and lumpy and not too thin. It’s difficult to choose a favourite shade as both are gorgeous. The two shades have a beautiful glossy finish and they are both long-lasting so there’s no need to apply a top coat. Removal is also easy as they do not stain the nails and fingers so a base coat is not necessary.
If you are looking for last minute Christmas gifts this collection makes for the perfect stocking stuffers for nail polish lovers.
ORLY’s Nail Lacquer range is free from harmful ingredients, including Formaldehyde, DBP and Toluene. It is certified vegan and cruelty free which is important to me.
