Orly In the Mix Fall 2015 Collection - My Pick


I've got just a quick post today showing a lonely Orly polish that I picked up at the end of August.  Even though it's been so long since I picked it up (oops), I still wanted to share it since it's unique to my collection.  I picked up a couple of basics at the same time, but I didn't include those since they are so basic (a foot file and nail swatch wheels).

I did get a quick picture of the display I stumbled across, hearing nothing about the collection beforehand.  I wish that Orly advertised its collections more - OPI and China Glaze seem to dominate the mainstream/salon quality market and drown out other brands.
Freestyle, Off Beat, Indie, Electropop, Midnight Show

The only polish that screamed out to me to bring me home was Turn It Up.  I got turned off from the rest of the collection, especially the 2nd and 3rd in the collage above, since they didn't look mixed well and you would need a legit paint can shaker to mix it up all the way.  Plus I felt like I had the shades in my collection already from other brands since they were all basic cremes.

I did something a little different for my quick swatch today since I just did my nails last night (purples!).  Anyway, I only used my swatch wheel, but I put down a base color on one of the "nails" to show it in a couple of ways.  I used 2 coats of Sinful Colors Black on Black.  Then I used a generous coat of Orly Turn It Up over both nails, with a little dabbing to maneuver the glitters to get an even coverage.
Orly Turn It Up has a clear base (I hope none of the glitters, especially the red, bleed into the base) and is loaded with glitters in multiple sizes of hexes.  My swatches dried down fairly smooth, but it will need a layer of top coat to get it glassy smooth.  My eyes spy yellow, green, red, orange, green, lavender and white (which is the smallest glitters).  All of the glitters are matte in finish.  It really pops on black and right now I can't think of another shade that all the glitters would show up over.  I know that this is a "Fall" collection, but honestly the colors read more summer to me.

Is Orly Turn It Up a glitter topper that appeals to you?  What color would you wear under it?  Do you knowingly by polish shades that look not completely mixed in the bottle and hope you can mix it all the way?
