Last week, I finally got my butt to a Sally's, and because I'm the luckiest gal in the world, there were still a few bottles left from ORLY's latest release: Sugar High. As I'm a fan of pretty pinks and sweet neons, I picked up Cake Pop and Key Lime Twist (which at first looks an awful lot like China Glaze's Celtic Sun, but trust me, it's not).

 Indoor light.

This mani was pretty easy, with two coats of Cake Pop and Key Lime Twist to start. When that was totally, and I mean totally dry, I applied french tip stickers, and then did two quick coats of Key Lime Twist. Before the tips could dry, I carefully removed the stickers.

I added the oval rhinestone, and then let everything dry for about ten minutes, finishing with a coat of quick-dry top coat.

Outdoor light.

The day after I did this mani, The Remix and I went out for supper, which is when I realized that I'd inadvertently matched my nails to my favourite Kate Spade bag. I guess I like what I like, eh? Haha!

I don't know if ORLY changed their formula for the Sugar High collection, but I got incredible wear out of this mani. On day seven, yes DAY SEVEN, I got my first chip. Even the rhinestones managed to stick around (with the help of proper rhinestone "glue"). So if you're into pastel pinks or awesome neons, you may want to pick up a bottle or two before ORLY's Sugar High collection sells out. The colours went on really smoothly, and seemed to last forever. Yay for long-lasting polishes! Haha!

What are you rocking this week? Link up and show off!

Hope you have an awesome weekend!


  1. SEVEN days of wear? That's crazy! I have one orly polish and I wasn't particularly crazy about it--but I might have to try it again! This mani looks great (per usual, friend)!

  2. You had me at "day 7". *swoons*
    Neons are such a summer thing for me, but sadly, I lack any neon polish. I think I need this collection, to rectify that. Also, because with neon you don't need to do any complicated nail art. Yay!

  3. That does match great. So cute.


Whattaya got to say about that? *waits*
