Orly Secret Society Collection: Review & Swatches

For Mani Monday I wanted to review one of the holiday collections from Orly, the Secret Society. I found it on one of my trips into Sally Beauty Supply. It's sometimes hard to find polishes that are unique to my collection, but I was able to find two. Macabre Masquerade and Masked Ceremony are two of the available glittery shades. There are creams and metallics in the collection as well.

Since I bought my polishes at Sally's, there was only a small display like the one above.

Masked Ceremony is a darkened grey with small silver micro-shimmer, silver square glitter, and fuchsia hexagon glitter. This was opaque in two coats, while still allowing the interesting glitter pieces to show through. I've never seen a mainstream brand do such an interesting take on a glitter. It's great. It lasted well on the fingers as well. Application was smooth, even with the different size glitters.

Macabre Masquerade is the other glitter I got from the collection. It's a mixture of a marine blue micro-glitter with silver and pink glitter in a blue tinged based. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that this could be opaque in a couple of coats. I honestly thought this might have to be used over another polish. For being such a glitter-rich polish, this applies well. It sparkles beautifully, and stays on the nails well.


The following swatches are two coats each of the individual polishes with a top coat. First is Macabre Masquerade.

Masked Ceremony below. It's a littler hard to see the fuchsia pieces, but you can see it along the edges. The silver squares are obvious.

Bottom Line: Both of these polishes are great. If you can find them in the stores it's worth getting since it applies well. Both are pretty, but Masked Ceremony is truly unique.
