Hello everyone, 
Here's a quick nail of the day. 
I'm back at uni and have been sick all week (hence the lack of blog posts) so i decided a pop of red would brighten my day.

This is Haute Red courtesy of Orly. I'm not normally a red nail polish fan but i really like this colour, it's not too dark and adds a bit of oomph to my amazingly drab winter wardrobe. The colour is a bit darker in real life than what it looks in the snap but you get the idea. I still can't find my camera so to make up for the poor quality photos I pinched this swatch from the Orly website.

This is my first Orly polish and i must say i am impressed. It applied like a dream and i only had to apply one coat which never happens with other brands! One of the things i love the most is the bottle and the lid. It has more grip than brands like OPI which means it's easier to open and nice to hold. 

Anyway my first experience with Orly gets a big thumbs up, i will have to hunt down some more. Exciting post on the Beauty blogger coming soon!


  1. loving the colour!!

  2. I like this color but I think it won't be good on my skin tone, I usually go for blue based reds.. but this one looks great on yours!:D

  3. Great colour, I've never tried any Orly but a few people have said the brush is good - might have to give them a try! x

  4. This looks fabulous! It's a very pretty shade of red.
