Orly Frolic Swatches and Review

This is the first time I'm wearing Orly Frolic and I have no idea why it sat in my untrieds for so long.

It's from their 2011 Happy Go Lucky Collection for back-to-school. For me, this is a really difficult color to describe. Its definitely NOT a neon, in spite of how bright it looks in the bottle. I'm calling it fuchsia purple. LOL! It reminds me of an orchid. It's a somewhat bright red-based lilac creme with a unique finish. Illamasqua has a finish similar to this and they call theirs a "rubber finish." It doesn't dry matte, but it's not high gloss either. I quite like it! I started to put a top coat on when I was finished, but I just couldn't bring myself to change it! And it's a one-coater! Even with one-coaters, I usually do two coats, but this one just looked so pretty, I stopped at one.

All photos are with a base coat and ONE coat of color. No top coat and no clean-up.

First the close up - I think it most accurately portrays both the color and the finish.

Had I tried this one out before I did my Top 11 of 2011 post, this might have made the list!

I really ♥ this one.
