The Best Things are Those Which We Overlook

I bought this cheap, wacky lot of Orlane testers off of eBay a while ago. Super cheap, but the colors looked pretty neat.

Here is the one named 92

What a pretty polish!!! This is three coats and it's a shimmery medium gray. I can't fault it. It's wonderful! I don't even know if Orlane sells nail polish any more, but his is a winner!

It's a glassy shimmer with a smokey base. The first coat is sheer, but after that it's a total home run!

Here's 90:

Now, here's the polish that I adore. More smokey gray base, with some fabulous shimmer!!!

Dark and yet massive pops of that glassy particled goodness!

Excuse my mad macro skills. Time for a tripod!

Total wow factor!!! I've got umpteen bottles because the lot was pretty big, all say tester on the bottom and several are about 1/4 to 1/2 inch below the top. Oh well! Such a great polish!

If I were doing a top twenty, this green would be on it!

For some reason Orlane doesn't seem to excite the nail polish aficionado zeitgeist, but truly these are just as nice as my Diors with regard to shimmer pay off. That green has so much variation from blueish to yellowish. Supah!

Thank you for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. Those are nice! I don't remember ever seeing Orlane before.

  2. Me, either. Only on eBay. But they sure are neat!!

  3. Isn't a neat color? Pretty on trend with the finish, too.
