Orly Calypso Breeze & Sky Blue-Pink, Oops, Another Small Haul!

Above: I wanted to place these pictures side-by-side so you could see the duo chrome colors and the way it looks in different lighting. It can appear as a violet shade, a light blue and a gray blue. Click on pic for details. This is Orly's Sky Blue-Pink over Calypso Breeze.

Above & Below: Orly Calypso Breeze with flash above, no flash below. A royal blue that is bright, but still a bit muted. It applied perfectly in 2 coats.
Below: My small Sally's haul, polishes L-R: Boggi Brites in Punky Pink, Orly Calypso Breeze and Sol Cabana. Orly Sky Blue-Pink, Orly Golden Halo, Finger Paints Ripe Peach, Lilac Lagoon, Yellow Bikini, Turquoise Tile. Other products from L-R: California Mango Extreme Hand & Body Creme, Miracle 7 hair leave-in, California Mango Miracle Cuticle Remover and California Mango's Mango Mend.
I actually *had* to get some things at Sally Beauty yesterday because I had a gift card to use as well as my 15% discount which would have expired at the end of the month, and we can't allow that to happen! I picked up some of the California Mango products which work very well to keep your hands in shape, another bottle of the Miracle 7 hair leave-in (this compares and is even better than the product "It's a 10" and is less expensive) and of course, some nail polish. Today I used Orly Calypso Breeze from the Tiki Time collection and then layered Sky Blue-Pink over it just to see what that shade was like. It's a duo chrome, looking a bit grayish-blue in the bottle with pink and gold flash. Once applied, it shows up differently in various lighting, as you can see in the picture. I now realize that it is not as sheer as I thought it might be and is plenty pigmented to wear all by itself. It's a very nice color, and I notice the front of the bottle says 'French Manicure' although I don't see it as such. This one and the other Orly 'French Manicure' one I picked up, Golden Halo, had red price tags marked at $2.99, but the sale girl told me all red tagged items are 1/2 off this weekend, so that's only $1.50 each. I hope you're all enjoying the start of the long weekend! Our weather here is in the low 70's and sunny, so I'm not complaining!


  1. Pretty colors. I like that Orly polish on you. It's really a pretty color. Nice haul Mary. Looking forward to some nice swatching. Have a nice holiday with your family.

  2. Love all those colors you picked up. Can't wait to see what some of the Finger Paints look like.

  3. I am loving the Orly Calypso Breeze and that bright orange!!

  4. What a nice haul you got there :-) The Orly Calypso Breeze is such a beautiful color and I'm curious to see the Finger Paints swatches

  5. Very pretty colors you picked out, and what a good deal on the Orly sale stuff! Do the hand treatments smell like mango?

  6. Thanks, Lucy! I like the Sky Blue-Pink the best or these 2 polishes! Hope you're enjoying the weekend :)

    Tali~thank you, I didn't quite mean to get all of this...!

    Olivia~I'll try and get to some of the Finger Paints over the next week.

    Chrissy~thank you :) I hope the bright orange isn't a streaky one :/

    Tuli~glad you like the Calypso Breeze. It's a bit of a different blue to me.

    Kae~I was happy when she told me they were 1/2 off the discounted price! The hand treatments do smell like mango and they are more intensive than others I've tried. My hands are messed up from working in the yard, so they need major help!

  7. That's beautiful! Looks really good on you! Nice Haul! I'm so jealous, I've never been to a Sally's before!

  8. Calypso Breeze is a nice color and looks great on you !
    Like your haul too, especially finger paints polish, never seen them to sale here :/

  9. Love the duochrome! I like that you really can se the colour differences. Nice haul too!

  10. Great haulage! I like the Sky-Blue-Pink as well - really pretty.
    Lucky you having a gift card that you *had* to use up as well!

  11. Kitty~Sally is not all that, but it's convenient for Chg and Finger Paints.

    Celine~thanks, Sally Beauty is the only place I've ever seen Finger Paints :)

    Alexlyndra~thanks you! I love duo chromes and this one is really pretty.

    Helen~yes, I hate when I "have" to do something like get nail polish :)

  12. Wow, it's hard to believe they're all the same color. That's very cool. I have an e/s the same color of how it appears in the photo on the left.
