Orly swatches, part 1

Seen here in my Orly haul post, now some swatches!

Scarlet is a bold red with gold shimmer in the bottle.

On the nail it becomes a stunning, metallic red, unfortunately with no gold shimmer. It's still an incredibly beautiful polish, though. This is two coats.

Walk Down the Aisle is a mint green jelly with superfine minty/aqua shimmer.

Three coats, probably not going to become opaque any time soon! So I decided to put it over Mode Cool As, which is a bright mint creme. I can't believe I haven't blogged this before, it's one of my favourite colours! Two coats here.
Less greyed/pastel than this 

More green than this!
Then with a coat of Walk Down the Aisle over the top.

The shimmer is really subtle and pretty. I'll definitely have to try this over some other colours.

That's all for now, I'll do the other three sometime this week.


  1. Wow, that red is gorgeous :) not so taken by the greens, but maybe they don't photograph so well?
