Orly Swatches & Review: 4 shades

Hello, Beautiful!

Sorry for the lack of posts the past few days. I was sick AGAIN, for the second time in less than 2 weeks. This time around it really got to me and it's taking a lot longer to get over. I can only hope I don't get sick before my surgery, which is only 20 days away!!

By the way, I've been putting all my surgery updates in a separate page - which is linked on the left side (or just click here). I'll be updating that page every step of my journey - especially during the recovery stage.

And don't forget to enter my February Giveaway! Win 46 items! Enter by February 25th! Click here for details.

Anyhow, onto the Orly swatches...

Lunar Eclipse (40077)
Shade Description: A sheer smoky blue with micro glitter. This shade has hints of purple depending on how you move your nails.

Royal Navy (40323)
Shade Description: A deep electric blue base with micro aqua blue glitter. Without a top coat the finish is flat, but with a top coat this shade turns into a beautiful, almost jelly like finish. This looks better in person than it does in the swatch photos.

Charged Up (40679)
Shade Description: A grape purple creme.

Sugar Plum (40383)
Shade Description: A pink subtle shimmer with purple undertones, making this a pinky-purple. Because the shimmer is so subtle, this looks almost like a satin finish in person.

*As always: All swatches are shown with 2 coats. Only one photo shows the polish with a top coat (the last photo), as I feel top coats make all shades look better; some top coats even save a horrible shade and transform it into something beautiful. I want to show the colors for what they are and what they could be when you apply a top coat. *
