Orly - Bubbly Bombshell

Hey guys! I have a seriously awesome polish to show you today!

However - this polish is that typical pinky/purple shade that my camera hates. And I think everyone else's camera hates it too as almost every swatch I have ever seen of it is the wrong color entirely.


This is Orly's Bubbly Bombshell from the Pin Up Collection.

Upon seeing original swatches of this color, I wanted it, but didn't feel like I needed it.
My Sally's never got the collection so I never got the chance to see it in person, so I didn't care too much for it.
But then my Winners got a mini set. One look at the true color and I knew I needed it. But I needed full size.
That's where my girl Tara came in - she sent me this beauty :)


Showing off the new scarf I crocheted yesterday!
This is multi-sized glitter in a clear base, 3 coats for full coverage.

Now. My pictures aren't color accurate either but this one is close:


Strangest picture ever, but I tried really hard in all sorts of lighting conditions to get the right color.

I went googling for accurate swatches and I could only find one. From All Lacquered Up, of course. Click here to see her swatch of it. I'm holding my nails up to her nails and it looks dead on!

This polish shoes the true importance of color accurate photos! When I thought it was more purple, I didn't want it. But when I saw its true magenta loveliness, I needed it!


Now, if you've read this far, you must like my blog a lot, so I'm gonna let you in on a little secret...
Tomorrow or the day after, 50 people are going to instantly win something... And there might also be an awesome grand prize as well... Keep your eyes peeled!
