Orly Retrowave - Summer 2020 - Swatches & Review

Press Sample

It's nearly the end of May, we've just 'celebrated' the unofficial start to summer that is Memorial Day weekend, and it's time to break out those brights! (I mean, I'll break them out all year round, because I'm a damn rebel Dottie.) The latest collection from ORLY delivers on brights in a big way, giving us retina-searing shades of green, yellow, turquoise and coral that are grounded by deep, traditionally fall-inspired hues of slate and berry. I think it's safe to say I'll be using the collection this summer and well beyond–the extreme brights play nicely with the deeper tones, and boys and girls, these neons don't need undies. Read on for swatches and thoughts on the collection!

Who Wants a Croissant? My Take on the French Manicure!

Nothing to Disclose

 Ooh la la! The French manicure (like it or not) is coming back in a big way! I'll be honest, it's never been a favorite of mine, the classic pink and white never really drew my attention like funky nail art or bright colors. However, that said, I've been known to do my take on the classic with weird color combos, quirky ideas, and today is no different! The other day, my friend Jill DMed me on Instagram to let me know that she wanted to see my take on the French Manicure trend, so I sat and thought about it, and came up with this... lol
