Orly Shimmering Mauve

I wasn't going to post today but I'm pulling myself away from Paper Mario just long enough to throw this post up. But I admit I feel a little chatty tonight... (when am I not chatty? Right?)
So last night I asked my husband to go randomly choose a polish for me to wear. He hates when I ask him because he says I never wear what he picks out and well he's right I've done that to him before and I ended up just going with what I wanted to wear. So I told him I won't wear it if I've already worn it before so he went over and just opened a helmer drawer and pulled something out without looking. He returned with a glitter from the muppets Opi collection and I turned him down since well I'm trying to cleanse the palette a little and back off the glitter. He wasn't happy to have to go again but he did and he pulled out Shimmering Mauve. When I saw it, I basically whined and went ehh it's ugly. So he was like well why did you buy it then. hah well that was a very good question! One that I didn't have an answer for. So I went ahead and panted BOTH hands with this even though I wasn't digging the color. So guess what I've got matching hands today!! pretty rare thing for me lately!
 (ps I'm still rocking my "Lulu thumb"!!) 
Anyone know what collection this Orly is from? I can't remember and I couldn't find the info online. All I know is that I must have bought it from Sally's on clearance.
 Formula on this was pretty good, super opaque a true one coater, it applies streaky but once it dries and you put your top coat on streaks are not visible. I have to say I was surprised that it's a foil/metallic. I was not expecting that. In the bottle its got that old grandma feel to it but once on the nail it's actually quite stunning! This is one I'd never wear on my own  but I'm glad I got it on my nails! The color is more of a dusty rose to me, with a rusty undertone.  Today the sun was behind clouds all day so I didn't get any sun shots but I figured I had enough pictures to show off this beauty so there you go, Orly Shimmering Mauve. Now back to my other current addiction... Mario here I come!!



  1. I'm glad I got this one onto my nails because I would have never thought it was so pretty just by looking at it in the bottle... goes to show don't judge a polish by it's bottle!!
