Good morning!!! Hope you’re all doing great! About a month ago I asked IG to pick polishes from my untried drawer for me to wear next and Amanda from Amanda Loves Polish (a blogger I have followed since I started blogging cause she’s great) picked out Orly’s Mirrorball (Holiday 2014 Collection) . This baby had been in my “untried” drawer for a looonggg time and have used it in some nail art 15 minutes on the nails mani which I loved (see it here) but didn’t really give me the opportunity to fully appreciate the beauty of it.
I have to admit I bought this guy because of the hype, thinking it would be ok but not extremely excited about it. I guess I just wanted to see what all the talk was about but then life happened and it went further and further back in the untried drawer . Fast forward to three weeks ago when I had to go to a christening and didn’t know what to wear on my nails. I thought, black dress, yes blingy silver nail would look good I guess… so I finally tried this guy on and fell in love! I have seen many unworthy hyped polishes (prosecco for instance) but this is not one of them. This one deserves the hype. I was sooo enamored with it that I spent a good part of the celebratory bbq staring at my nails lol. Look at it! can you blame me?!
The formula was very nice and flowy and easy to work with, I love Orly because they are not hit or miss like other main stream brands **ahemm essie** and pretty much all of the polishes I’ve tried from them have an amazing formula. You see two coats plus top coat in the pics.
So, thank you so much Amanda for suggesting this, I really love it and definitely consider it an untried treasure.
Thank you so much for reading! check out Amanda she has a plethora of drool worthy swatches on her social media!

This is so pretty. I don’t wear silvers but I love the holo with the glitter.
I’m glad this was added to their permanent line so I don’t have to hoard my bottle! Great swatch!
Thank you!!! Yes so am I!!
Hands down one of my favorite polishes, your swatches of it are amazing!
I find that a lot of swatches don’t capture the true beauty of this polish, but you totally nailed it. You perfectly captured it!
Thank you love!!!
Absolutely stunning ♡♡
It gets me every time <3 soo pretty!
It’s so fantastic! Great swatch!
Thank you so much!!
I’ve been looking for this forever and can’t find it. It’s always sold out. Boo! It looks great on you.
ugh this has been on my ISO forever, I need to get it!! so gorgeous!!!
You do! Best of luck with the hunt!
I love this one. I had to order it online…no regrets.
i Have mirror ball and haven’t used it yet! I know, what’s wrong with me?! 😛 And agreed about Essie 😉
Lol break it out of untried jail asap!!! Lol essie 😉
I skipped this one because I had an identical polish from Octopus Party Nail Lacquer that actually came out before Mirrorball!
Oh wow!! I had no idea OPNL had a similar one!!! Do you recall the name
I have that one too! #icantgetenough
Which one do you like better amanda
I can’t believe you resisted swatching this one haha. It’s such a great polish, but I do think the hype for it got a little out of control lol.
it really did but i think we were all feeding off each other, and it was a time when this one, prosecco and Masked affair came out and we were like crazy polish feigns hahah fun times
It’s amazing on you! I’m debating gelly sandwiching it again for my vacation! You’re correct, it lives up to the hype, 10 fold for me! Thank you for the sweet sentiments! <3
Thank you for suggesting it!
Such a gorgeous polish 🙂
It really is thank you
Beautiful swatches Monica! I actually only found this recently after Orly added it to the core line. I have yet to wear it.
Thank you!!! I know it was super hard to find during the crazd, I actually bought it off of someone from paa for full price. I know some girls got if half off
Oh man, this is so pretty on you! I’m going to have to keep my eyes peeled for Mirrorball when I’m out and about.
Definitely do! Its a must have
Easily my favorite Orly! Gorgeous swatches!
