Orly Old School Orange

Hey guys!  I am just finishing up a day of beautify-ing.  I got my hair cut, brightened up and glossed, bought a couple polishes during my errands, and topped off the day with a few exciting swatches.  One of today's exciting grabs was Orly Old School Orange, a matte finished and super bright orange jellyish creme.  Orly polishes are 3 Free and come with slightly more polish (.6 fl oz rather than the standard .5 fl oz or less) that other brands. 
2 coats Old School Orange, no top coat, artificial light
Now I said that this was a jellyish creme, but don't go expecting an OPI sorbet that requires about 4 coats.  This polish is a bit translucent, but still opaque in 2 coats.  You don't need a top coat on this because this polish is all about the satin finish.  Satin finishes are the middle ground between matte and standard shine, and that is what sets this polish aside from the endless oranges that have come out in the past few years.  I can't speak for the wear on this, but I'm a big fan.  This came out as part of the Plastix collection which I think was last year.  I grabbed four recently and i think that's the entire collection.  They are still readily available online!



  1. Very cute! I like that you only needed 2 coats (:

  2. Forever '92 ~ Isn't that great? It's like a melted crayon though. Well what I imagine it would be like. You wouldn't want 3 coats because 3 coats of crayon might be a bit gloopy and messy.
