Orly Mineral FX Complete Collection Swatches!

Ok! So finally I was able to get some swatches for you guys :) It took a bit longer than I expected due to having a little shindig to attend at my kids' school. But let me start off by saying that almost all of these colors are so sparkly in real life. It was hard to capture their sparkle with my camera, but I tried :) I'm also going to include the swatches I posted lastnight so that they're all in one post.

Let's start off with the ones from lastnight. I also made a video to add so that you can see just how much sparkle the still pictures can't quite capture.


Rock Solid

This one didn't have it's own individual video because I swatched lastnight and this was the first one I put on and then removed it to swatch Emberstone. But I put it on my right hand today (excuse the broken nail) and it is shortly filmed on the same video as Rococo-A-Go-Go

Rock The World


Rock It


Stone Cold


Rococo-A-Go-Go is actually a dupe of Zoya Valerie. I didn't want to believe it, but in the pics I have Valerie on two nails and Rococo-A-Go-Go on 2 nails. Can you tell any difference?? I sure couldn't!!! But just in case you want to know, Valerie is on my middle finger and pinky. Still beautiful!

I also have to apologize right now for the swatching. I'm not used to doing a full hand of one color several times a day. I realize that there's 'leftovers' of the polishes and my skin/cuticles just got more heinous with each color. I used cuticle oil the first couple of changes but stopped because it was burning with all the acetone!!

Rock The World looks like OPI Rally Pretty Pink, OPI It's My Year and Zoya Faye and while it's similar, it's not the same. It's more purple than Rally Pretty Pink and more of a red toned purple than It's My Year.

I really do love them all. They're all so sparkly and well pigmented. I only had a problem with the formula on Rock Solid. It was a bit gritty. I thought it would dry gritty and bally, but it evened out as it dried! But I think my favorite colors of the collection have to be Emberstone, Rock It and Stone Cold. If you already have Zoya Valerie, then you don't need to pick up Rococo-A-Go-Go. Unless you want a backup in a bigger bottle, then by all means go for it!

That's it from me for today! The first week of school and things have been busy busy!!! I hope you're all doing well and have a nice evening.

Edit: I just noticed we hit 250 followers!!! As promised, we will be having a giveaway to celebrate this. My next post (don't know when it will be, but sometime within the next few days) will be the giveaway rules, details, etc. Thank you and have a goodnight!!!


  1. Really great swatches! Thanks for the videos, very helpful. You cleary went to a lot of trouble. I think my fave is Emberstone

  2. These colors are truly amazing! The videos are great, thank you.

    I follow your blog now for a pretty long time and maybe you followed mine on Melaniesnailpolish (The Color Palette), but I moved to a new blog that fits my ideas. Maybe you would like to take a look at
    Maybe I see you there :)

  3. Love that blue!! Am a new huge fan of Orly brand!! Great formula for the price

  4. Millie, thank you so much! Swatching multiple polishes in one day is a lot harder than one might think! But I'm glad the hard work paid off. Emberstone is one of my favorites from this collection, I hope you do end up getting it!

    Melanie, Thank you! I've already put your new blog on my blog roll. Awesome blog! Thanks so much for bringing it to my attention.

    Fingers, Orly really is stepping up their game! I'm buying them a lot more than I ever did before.

    Amy, Definitely Addicted and Paillette, thank you so much for stopping by! I'm glad you like the swatches.

    I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! <3

  5. I thought I was going to be able to skip this one, but Stone Cold is so gorgeous!

  6. I purchased Rock-It, Rock The World, Stone Cold and Rococo A-Go-Go, and they're amazing! I'm in love with them! Awesome swatches and great idea of making a video to show the real amazing glitter/sparkle:)

  7. These are epic!! I want them all, but maybe I'll have to skip Rococo since I have both Valerie and Jem.
