I've been waiting for this collection to come out and when I finally found it at my local beauty supply I was like "that's it" when I saw them in person. I went back and forth with myself about buying all 4, finally the hoarder in me won out and I decided to buy all 4 instead of just the brown one. Check out swatches and a couple comparisons for this collection by clicking the Read More button after the collage photo below!
Buried Alive is a shimmery dark brown. This is the only one I was ohh-ing and awe-ing over in the store, it's beautiful on the nail also! If you like brown polishes this is a really nice one! The formula was ok, a bit thick but it was easy to apply. I used 2 coats for the photos below!
Decades of Dysfunction is a creamy off white. Love this color, which is not surprising since I also loved it when Orly released it last Spring under the name Pure Porcelain. The formula was great, 2 easy coats for full opacity!
Here is Decades of Dysfunction vs. Pure Porcelain. They are exactly the same...color wise and formula wise.
Grave Mistake is a dark red. I was hoping this would be more a darker blood red shade...after all Dark Shadows is a vampire movie. I do like it but it's nothing we haven't seen a thousand times already. The formula was great, I used 2 for the photos below.
Overall this collection is big snooze and a huge disappointment for me. Other than Buried Alive I'm not thrilled. I hate when brands do a movie tie in collection that has so much potential and then we get something like this...2 re-promotes, a been done a bazillion red and a nice brown. I dunno, what do you guys think? Do you like the collection, will you be picking any of these up?
Orly's Dark Shadows Collection is out now! I've seen it locally at Sally Beauty Supply already and online on Head2ToeBeauty.com.
