Lit from Within: Orlys and Whimsies

Orlys and Whimsies

Sometimes I dig through my stash of untrieds, and certain combinations just speak to me.  I had 3 new Whimsies that I had gotten through blog sales, and I had some new Orlys from the Mash Up collex, and I thought they made good pairs.  Let's see what you think...

Orly Melodious Utopia and Whimsies Hatched.  I don't wear a lot of yellow by itself, and I didn't need another yellow.... but did you see that pink shimmer?  Me = sucker.

This I wasn't expecting.  I love this.  So... Spring.

Check out the bottle shot - definitely not as yellow, more beige.  I love how the Orly brings out the perfect Spring yellow in this glitter.  Sometimes, you make a combo that is better than either of the two original polishes by themselves!

Orly Coachella Dweller and Whimsies Wicked.  That green... I love that mint green.  I could have used another coat, though.  It's a little thin, but I love Orly formulas for the most part.

This may be the first Whimsie that I've tried that I didn't love.  What I did like - the green.  Especially how it mixes with the mint and looks a little mottled.  What I don't like is the sparseness of glitter, and how each glitter is so big.  I just can't pull that look off with my widdle tiny nails.

Orly Boho Bonnet and Whimsie Flower Child.  This is such a sweet periwinkle!  It does lean a little blue, but it seemed to enhance the purple of Flower Child.

This is a simple, pretty glitter.  The fuchsia is a great color, the tiny glitters in the background are groovy.  Where, though, are the flower glitters?  Seems like an obvious choice to me with this name.

Do you also pat yourself on the back when you score a great find at a blog sale, or make a combo of polishes that you end up loving?


  1. All look like pretty combinations :)
