NOTD: Orly Happily Ever After

Today I'm wearing Happily Ever After, a dark berry pink creme from Orly's 2009 fall collection, Once Upon a Time. I call it a creme even though it has a slight shimmer, in most lights it isn't visible so it's like a creme with a little surprise. This is a colour I've changed my mind about a million times, especially during application. Do I like or is it just not for me?


Orly Happily Ever After
Note that it is darker in real life than in the pictures. For some reason my index finger nail looks darker than the rest, that is closer to reality

See the tiny ammount of shimmer? It definitely shows more in the bottle
than on the nail

I think I do like it, maybe even more than I thought I would when I bought it. The first coat of polish made me think "Oh, no! Why did I buy this?!", it was an extremely unflattering dark pink. Then it just got better with each coat, the colour got deeper and more berry, after 3 coats it was opqaue and it looked okay but thought it would need some Konad to be wearable for me. Now though, after it has dried and darkened and I've worn it for a couple of hours it has definitely grown on me. It doesn't need Konad! It's pretty as it is!

I like it, it's not exactly an unusual or exciting colour but it looks fabulous on you!

Now, this is one of the Orly colors I strongly do not like. Don't get me wrong, it looks great on you and it totally compliments your skin tone...but I hate that shimmer.

Nice polish! I like how it looks without flash

@Cali369 That's exactly how I felt about it. Never had a thing for berry colours, this is actually the one and only I own. But I'm glad I bought it :)

@Nihrida I'm the other way around, I'd want it to have MORE shimmer! Though I guess it'd be pretty as a straight creme too :P

@Kelly That pictures shows it more how it looks in real life, but a tiny bit darker and more murky almost. Note to self: Read the camera manual to take more colour accurate pictures!
