Happy Nails - Part II

Following on from my post earlier this week where I was shouting the joys of Orly's Va Va Voom from the blogging rooftops, here's a post on my other recent Orly discovery: Holla.


Once I'd colour popped with Orly Va Va Voom I just couldn't stop! I was looking for an orange nail polish to contrast with a particular outfit, so put out a cry for help on Twitter. The only oranges I owned were all variants on a coral theme, and I was on a tangerine trip. Once again, Farrah at makeup it girl (hereby annointed my Official Nail Polish Guru) assisted me in my nail polish quest and recommended this beautiful bright. When Nadira at Nadira Makeup Mistress   also recommended it, I took it as a sign from the beauty Gods that I was meant to try this polish. If you haven't already guessed it doesn't take much! Thankfully boots.com has just started stocking Orly Mani Minis so I put my order in. If you are not sure if a bright is really for you, then the Mani Minis are the perfect way to try them out without buying a full-size polish. They are currently on 3 for 2 at Boots too, so now's the time to try them. I've taken the photo below to give you an idea of the size when compared to a standard Nails Inc polish (Kensington Caviar TopCoat, which I got as part of a Nails Inc gift set free with an Elle subscription).



This polish applies easily and dries to a matte finish. I love this polish and it's always good when a product makes you smile in addition to ticking a few beauty trend boxes. I think it's safe to say that my love affair with the highlighter pen part of the colour spectrum is going to continue for a while. I am defiinitely a Holla-nails girl!

  3. Yes think everyone should try this colour at least once for Summer-it's a really intense pop of colour to brighten up a look.I want to try some of the other bright shades that are around too. That ring is one of my favourites.It was Scott Wilson for Asos collection last season.Thought that was another way to bring pop of colour to an outfit. X
