Spotted: Orly Flash Glam FX Collection!

Happy Friday lovelies! I don't have a manicure to show you this afternoon since I've spent the last day or so settling back in at home. It seems that I have a habit of editing several posts worth of material and then going on a posting spree, leaving myself nothing to show you once I've blown through them all! What a terrible cycle I've got myself into. Shame on me! ;) Don't worry, I'm slowly but surely working my way into becoming a better and more consistent blogger.

Ok, on to the goodies! Yesterday afternoon I made up an excuse to get out of the house so I could make my way to Sally's Beauty in order to use a coupon before it expired (and to pick up some groceries). I was hoping to come across some China Glaze Neons, but instead I came across these bad Larry's...

Orly's new Flash Glam FX Collection:

In order - Mermaid Tale, Spazmatic, Can't Be Tamed, Be Brave, and Sashay My Way.






While I was excited to have come across the new display of a set of polished I hadn't even seen swatched (till today - see what I saw HERE), I was disappointed in the collection as a whole. Each one of these seems like something we've seen before from other recent collections! To be honest, I was hoping and kind of expecting flakies out of this collection.

The tag line for this collection is to layer this over black for different effects (hence, my expectation for flakies), but as you can see from the top picture the side-by-side color spoons don't look that differ at all.

In the end, I walked out of Sally's with Mermaid Tale because it looked the most unique. And I had a killer coupon, let's not forget. I won't lie, but I think I will eventually cave and get Spazmatic and Can't Be Tamed because I have a weakness for glitter. But you can bet your arse I won't be paying full retail, I am the queen of online bargain shopping for polish!

So, what do you think of these glitters? Will you buy any?

  1. Thanks for the link. :). I know what it is like to cave and buy. Even when on a no-buy. Temptation. It's evil.

    1. No problemo! I don't think I could ever stick to a no buy, so I've never put myself on one! Usually my purchases just happen in large but well spaced spurts. lol

  2. Mermaid Tale would have been my pick too, if I would buy anything from this collection. I wouldn't pay retail either. I do like that deep purple "can't be tamed" one as well.

    1. I've seen swatches of the purple and I think there may be issues with glitter curling. If I can get a good price online I will pick it up, if not I'll wait till its on clearance at Sally's.

  3. I purchased Spazmatic and Mermaid Tale yesterday. I really liked Mermaid Tale because I like mermaid-ish colors and Spazmatic looked like it would layer well over a color I have, plus I liked the name. I almost got Can't be Tamed because I'm a sucker for purples, but I held off. They're really expensive though at normal price and probably would have passed if I didnt have a coupon and Sally's was having a $5.99 sale on all Orly.

    1. Coupon FTW! I completely agree with you on the price issue, way too expensive for pretty run of the mill glitters. I can say that Mermaid Tale is a total win though.
