ORLY is one of my favourite nail polish brands and I always look forward to their new seasonal collections. Their newest collection is the ORLY Mulholland Autumn Collection which consists of the perfect Autumnal tones and consists of six different polishes; two of which I have to show you today, and the shades are available to purchase from Grafton’s Beauty here in the UK.
The two shades I have from the collection are Cahuenga Pass and Mansion Lane, and they’re available in the original nail polish formula £10.50 as well as the ORLY EPIX formula £15.90 depending on your preference. These ORLY polishes feature a nice wide brush which coats my wider nail beds in just two easy strokes, and the rubberised lid offers a great amount of grip during application.
ORLY polishes tend to be in the slightly higher end of the nail polish market as their bottles contain a generous 18ml of product, however I have ORLY polishes which are over seven years old and the formula is as good as it was the day I purchased them so they last very well too so in my opinion, they’re definitely worth the price especially as I don’t find Nails Inc Polishes to age well at all and they’re even more pricier than the ORLY polishes are, and ORLY have more collections too.
Mansion Lane is a taupey grey shade which is relatively light in tone within the bottle, but when on the nails it does darken by around two shades which doesn’t bother me but it’s something to consider as it looks more like a dove grey in the bottle. Mansion Lane has a great formula which a little sheer and best applied in three thin coats but if you have short nails without an obvious nail line, two coats might suffice. I think this shade would look amazing with practically any glitter topcoat layered over the top and I really love it.
Cahuenga Pass is a bright pumpkin orange which has a jelly formula, and is quite sheer due to its jelly nature but it is buildable and offers full opacity in three to four thin coats. This is such a perfect shade for Halloween, and would make a great base for any halloween inspired nail art designs but would be too sheer to be used as a nail art orange, so it’d be best used as a base for nail art purposes.
