Hope you're having a great Thursday ;)
These are my very first Orly polishes that arrived yesterday!
I have used one Orly product in the past, the Orly Bonder, but I ended up passing that one along since it stained my nails yellow, and I don't particularly care for that look.. ;)
I bought these from an eBay seller. They are all minis, containing 0.18oz/5,4ml each.
....which leads us to todays nail, which is Lola!
This shade is from the Hot Stuff Collection. Orly describes this as a neon pink, I strongly disagree. To me, this resembles a hot, bright coral-y pink cream shade; I fell in love with this instantly! Mostly because of the lovely color, but also due to the formula. This was like painting on melted butter, application was that smooth! Also, it's very glossy and the coverage is great; it was opaque after two coats, but true to my habits I had to do a third just because... :)
What do you think of Orly polishes? Do you have any favorite shades? Do you like this one?
Walpurgis Night precedes Labour Day on May 1 and many Walpurgis events continue over night from April 30 into that holiday.
The forms of celebration in Sweden vary in different parts of the country and between different cities. One of the main traditions is to light large bonfires, a custom which began during the 18th century. Lighting the popular bonfires began with the purpose of keeping away evil spirits, especially demons and witches. Nowadays, Walpurgis Night is usually seen as a celebration of springtime.
Many Swedes now celebrate the end of long, dreary winters by singing Spring songs. These songs were spread by the students' spring festivities and Walpurgis Night celebrations are especially common in university towns. Walpurgis celebrations are not a family occasion, but rather a public event. Once the fire dies, many people move on to pubs and restaurants or to friends’ parties.
Walpurgis being celebrated on April 30 creates a double national holiday in Sweden. On this day, King Carl XVI Gustaf celebrates his birthday. So you'll see Swedish flags all around the country to salute the King ;)
May Day/Labor Day (May 1st) follows Walpurgis Night celebrations with a wide choice of events, parades and festivities. Some mark this traditional workers’ day of leave by joining one or other of the May Day demonstrations that parade through the streets of their town or village, beneath banners carrying slogans of a political, classical or more topical nature.
The weather is going to be warm and sunny, yay! ;)
I'm not one of those going out in the streets demonstrating, though. I'll be going out in the garden instead... ;)
Until next time;
