Good morning polished world! How are you all doing today? I feel like it should be Friday, but alas, it's only Wednesday. Anyone else's week going super slow? I think this whole watching, the Olympics nightly is throwing me off. Maybe? Or maybe it's the lack of rain and the extreme hot weather. Sigh.
Today I'm sharing with you swatches of some of the new ORLY Breathable Treatment + Color polishes. A few weeks ago I posted on the blog a Press Release regarding this new collection which requires no base coat or top coat, just two coats and you're done. I was very interested to see how they would pan out. I decided to swatch before using them for nail art because the colors needed to be seen on their own! Plus, I said I was going to start swatching more and I'm sticking to that!
Let's take a look!
The collection consists of 18 different colors. I received Give Me a Break, TLC, and Stronger Than Ever. Originally I received different ones which were equally as gorgeous, but unfortunately were never able to swatch them since FedEx broke them. Ugh, all my packages have been destroyed lately, but that's a rant for another time.
Give Me A Break is a gorgeous fuchsia polish. At first I thought it was dupe of Frolic, but side by side the bottles are very different. As promised, two coats and full coverage.
TLC, which I'm going to call The Little Canvas, is a gorgeous purple shade. My favorite of the three I swatched. Two coats, full coverage. Love.
Stronger Than Ever is a gorgeous red with gold shimmer. Wasn't too sure about this one when I saw the bottle, but after one coat I was in love. It almost has a crelly formula which builds up beautifully. Hard to capture the true beauty of this polish, this was the best I could do.
Just like my normal ORLY polishes, these do not disappoint. Awesome application, and beautiful shine. Huge plus that you don't have to use a base or top coat. Honestly, I thought I had put on top coat because of how shiny they all were.
My favorite part, the brush!!! These polishes have a wider pro style brush similar to Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel brush and the OPI brush. Dear ORLY, please make this the brush on all your polishes!!!
What do you think? Do you have a favorite? Any nail art suggestions for these beauties??
I'll have nail art up for them hopefully over the next few weeks. I also decided to swatch because I have so much nail art to share with you that I didn't want these to get lost or put on the back burner.
The ORLY Breathable Polishes are available at ULTA, JCPenney, salons, and ORLYbeauty.com!
Until next time, <3.
