Orly Happy Go Lucky Back To School Swatches

Orly's Happy Go Lucky Back To School Collection contains four shades--three cremes and one shimmer. This is a collection that I absolutely love! I almost passed on buying these because I thought I likely had some similar colors. I haven't found any exact dupes yet, but even if I do, the formula on each and every one of these is absolute perfection. Not too thick, not too thin, and nearly opaque in one coat. They're highly pigmented and dry to a glossy finish.

Frisky is the perfect mix of sky blue and turquoise. There's just enough green mixed in, but not too much. Love, love, love!

Fresh is a lime green shade that's vivid and well, fresh!

Flirty, the lone shimmer in this collection, is a bright lighter fuchsia pink that's filled with silvery white micro shimmer.

Frolic is an intense dark lavender creme with fuchsia undertones. It was interesting when I removed this one, because the cotton ball had the dark lavender shade in the center, and it was surrounded by a fuchsia tone.


My favorite shade in this collection is Frisky, but I love every one of them. The formula was the same on all four--perfect. Orly has always had what I consider to be an above average formula, but these were even nicer than they usually are. I used two coats on each shade and photographed them outdoors in full sun. Fun colors, perfect formula, cute names. Well done, Orly!

  1. Orly never disappoints! And I love their bottles. My favorites colors from this collection are the green and purple, Fresh and Frolic. Of course I want them all, but those two are calling out to me the most. Thank you for the great swatches!

  7. I have flirty and love it. I almost picked up the aqua, but figured I'd hate it since it's a cream.

  9. They look like high school teen colors - by maybe that's what they were going for - in naming it back to school! I don't think of teens popping for the $ for an Orly polish however. I do feel we have seen these shades a zillion and one times over.
