valentines nail polishes from ORLY:

a quick little review for you guys today! since it's valentines in a few days I thought I'd share a few nail polishes I was sent by look fantastic recently. 

these ORLY polishes are from their limited edition 'I love nails' spring 2013 valentines collection and are appropriately themed in colour and name... awww!

so here are some swatches from two of the range:
toast the couple is a peachy nude that has a frost/pearlised finish. 

I don't wear pearlised polishes so this one isn't for me but I know they're quite popular so I thought I show you how it swatched! I was surprised how much I like it once applied and the formula is nice and rich without being thick and heavy. It hasn't quite won me round to frosted nails but I have to say I don't hate it! 

I used 3 coats here but I'd say 2 would be enough if you were in a hurry!
monroe's red is a bright pillar box red polish!

this one is my cup of tea! every girl needs a stand out va va voom red in their collection and this is no exception! bright, super glossy and one hell of a statement this is my favourite polish from the I love nails range. there's something that just oozes sex appeal about red polish; if I'm feeling a little meh this is definitely the polish I'd put on to give me a lift!

the I love nails collection is available here with free shipping; if you can't decide which is your favourite there's a mini selection with all four colours to tempt you with!

what nail colour will you be wearing this valentines, have you tried ORLY polishes before?
