Throwback Thursday: Orly Oui

The next few Throwback Thursdays I will be featuring some of my past favorite holiday polishes. This next Orly one was a definite stunner to me a few years back, and one I always seem to revisit this time of year.

 Orly Oui is a rich purple with an intense golden shimmer.

Collection: Holiday Soiree 2011

Color: This color came out when a ton of other brands were doing repetitive pink versions of this color Zoya Faye, OPI Really Rally Pink, Orly Ingenue, OPI It's My Year, and so on. Oui on the other
hand has a very clear purple base. It's a beautiful color, and the gold shimmer is very much in the forefront. This is a perfect holiday color without it screaming "I have Christmas on my nails!".

Formula: The formula on this is average-good. I find the formula a bit thinner than I'd like, and I needed 3 coats. Not a deal breaker by any means, but in 2014, a color like this should be more pigmented.

Price: If you do a Google search of this you'll find many options in the $6-$7 range for purchase.

Overall: I really love Oui. I love a purple and I love gold shimmer! This combines both for a really blingy and festive nail polish.

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Thursday!
