Spaaaah-rty by Orly…

27 Feb

Two weekends ago, I got invited to Orly‘s spa party at Posh Nails, where Orly launched their Cool Romance collection. When I got the invite, I immediately said YES! Why wouldn’t I? I’m addicted to pretty nail polish and I love pampering sessions! Teehee!


What I wore : The invite stated, "Laid-back Romantic" so attire was really open to anyone's interpretation of "romantic" -- Forever21 lace top. Coral hued blazer from Hong Kong, Bayo denim skirt and my favorite DESÙ camel wedge (Love. Love. Love).

When I saw the collection, I swooned and immediately fell in love with the unusual pastel colors! They’re perfect for spring! — not that we really have spring here in Manila 😉

This collection features six soft, splash of cool and romantic pastel shades — You’re Blushing (Wisteria Crème), Prelude to a Kiss (Pastel Pink Crème), Jealous Much (Mint Crème), Faint of Heart (Soft Gray Crème), Steel your Heart (Charcoal Shimmer), Artificial Sweetener (Dusty Rose Shimmer). Don’t you think the names are sooo cute?!?

I had a hard time choosing the color to put on as they were all so purr-ty! If only I could have all the colors on my nails, I would have! But I had to make a decision and ended up choosing “Prelude to a Kiss” to match my coral hued blazer for the day 🙂

What’s not to love about this shade? It’s so dainty and girly! Personally, I think it looks more of a peachy shade with a hint of pink. The first coat was a little streaky but you should be ok with two coats for full coverage (a third one won’t hurt either).

Of course, Orly sessions won’t be complete without their ever reliable top and base coats. Can I just say I swear by Orly’s Glosser (top coat) and Orly’s Bonder (base coat)? They really protect my fingernails from turning icky yellow! So I’m close-to-sureness, their Top2Bottom top and base coat will give similiar resuts… We’ll see… 😉


It was indeed a fun and relaxing event. Having your nails pampered by Posh Nails, nail polish c/o Orly, while being served yummy calorie-filled snacks and drinks, is THE LIFE! And don’t forget the loot bag we received after the event! What more can you ask for?

It was made more fun because I was with my fellow blogger friends from The Breakfast Club, Aia and Elaine. Everything is always more fun when done with these friends 🙂
