Today we’re looking at the next summer collection on the docket, and it’s from one of my favorite, and I still believe underrated brands, Orly. Now Orly’s summer collection last year had some absolutely stunning neons and brights in it so I expected no different from this one. And I was not disappointed!
As always, I received this as part of my Orly Color Pass. I’ve talked about Orly Color Pass many times before and how much I love it! But just in case you’re new here, I’ll give another quick rundown. The Color Pass is where you pay a fee up front ($119) and then over the course of the year after you sign up, you receive 4 of Orly’s seasonal collections. The boxes are automatically mailed out to you as they release, and show up on your doorstep. And each box always contains extra goodies – like this box contained a full size of their Bonder base coat! I always say it’s a great deal if you’re like me and already planning to buy all of their collections anyways. Or it’s perfect if you’re looking to expand your collection and get more polishes! Orly has really been impressing me with their formulas lately, and they’re great at coming out with different finishes and formulas.
So that’s my spiel, definitely check out the website and you can sign up if you’re interested! Right now you’ll receive this summer collection as your first box!
Alright, let’s get right into this collection! It’s an absolutely stunning color story and I love how the colors all look together. And you’ll see they’re absolutely beautiful formulas. Let’s get right into it already!
Listen, after the struggles I had with the Zoya Neons, I was ready for some true cream neons. (There was nothing wrong with the Zoyas, they just didn’t truly scratch that neon itch). And boy howdy, thank god the China Glaze summer release came THROUGH for us.
This is the ‘Havana Nights’ collection for Summer 2021, and oh my, it’s absolutely stunning. It has those neon shades I always crave in warmer weather (I say as its currently 45 degrees outside, listen the warmer weather is COMING, I SWEAR). It features 6 rich and saturated cream shades, including some beautiful neons.
As always, I purchased this collection from my favorite, Polishpick.com. If you’ve been here for a while, you know I love them for the mainstream brands, and they always have the best prices and fastest shipping. I highly recommend them. (And let them know I sent you!)
We have some beautiful and bright shades to look at, so let’s just get right into it!
This is slowly just becoming a Color Club blog and listen, I’m not mad at it. (Not really, I’ll always be swatching other mainstream brands). Instead of doing seasonal quarterly releases like other brands, Color Club likes to do this thing where they drop like 4 collections at a time randomly. They truly have my heart, so I’m here to be your guide, and take your hand through all of the different collections and releases. Let me lead you, my friends. I don’t see a ton of others reviewing these shades, and I consider them super underrated! So I’m here to be the one to sift through them all for you.
We looked at the Parisian Garden collection earlier, and this collection dropped right afterwards. This is the ‘Jersey Girl’ collection and while Parisian Garden had more softer, spring shades, this has bright and and saturated summer shades. It’s a collection of 6 creams.
These are available on the Color Club website for $8.50 each. THOUGH I always say, you never have to wait too long for a sale (in fact, at the time of writing this post, they have 40% off sitewide). There are also a ton of influencers that have 20% off codes. AND be sure to sign up for their rewards! You get points for each purchase that add up pretty quickly to $10 and even $25 off. This all to say, you never have to pay full price for a Color Club polish if you’re smart. And that’s how I’m able to get all of these collections to swatch for you!
Alright enough yammering, let’s get into the swatches!
