Orly Pink Fun

Lately, I have been getting into Orly polishes. I LOVE them and I don't know why I hadn't tried some of them before. Their colors are not as funky as China Glaze, but they do create wearable colors that are beautiful and playful. They always have some neat collections. Plus, I love how big the bottles are you get .6fl oz which makes me happy!

Here are some pretty pinks I acquired recently.
L-R: Oh Cabana Boy, Pixy Stix, & Passion Fruit

Oh Cabana Boy

Oh Cabana Boy wasn't the easiest to capture because it is somewhat of a neon. It is a light-med pink shimmer with a violet flash throughout. I used 3 coats. This is a fun summer color name included!

Pixy Stix

Pixy Stix to me looks just like the Crayola color "pink" that you get in a box of crayons. It's a pink that leans a bit on the coral side. I think it could go either way as a pink or as coral pink. Either way it's a great creme polish that I love. This is 2 coats.

Passion Fruit

Passion Fruit is true neon. It is that highlighter pink color. It's not hot pink per say, but it is a bright neon pink. I could get more detailed with this, but I think you get what I mean. This was 3 coats and it does dry matte. If you like matte put a matte top coat on. If you like it shiny add just a regular top coat. Personally, I'm a shiny gal, but it's up to you what you like best!

Today I am wearing Pixy Stixy, I decided I'd put a coat of Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure on it for extra pop. Don't worry I'm not going to get into Hidden Treasure it's been covered so many times! If you're not sure what it is just visit MakeupAlley Nail Board and there will probably be 100+ posts on it :P. It's becoming like the Twilight of the nail world. I get it :P. Anyways, it looks pretty cool! I figured I'd show you.

That's all for today lovelies. I'm off to Dollar Tree. I told myself I was on a nail polish buying ban,but it's Dollar Tree! $1 nail polish isn't that big of deal, right??? Validate me people! Hehehe



  1. I love Pixy Stix but it was sold out at my Sally's when I decided I wanted it :( haha! Passion Fruit is really gorgeous too though.

    I really need to go on a no-buy as well. But there's just so many new collections comming out and I need them all!

  2. I actually found Pixy Stix at CVS. You may want to check there. I know it's hard to go on a no-buy....ugh. I'm really going to try.

  3. I love Orly colors. The pinks look great on you!

  4. Oh you found HT, I've been looking for this! Pixy Stix is my favorite of the bunch, very pretty!

  5. Pixy Stick looks very similar to another OPI color I just bought called Cotton Candy. It's a creamy, opaque, sherbet-y color. Very pretty color, but it came out super gloppy. Did you experience the same with any of these?

  6. I didn't find Pixy Stix or any Orly's goopy at all. i haven't had problems with the consistency of their polishes. That's weird, maybe you got a bad bottle?
