Orly Pixie Dust

My mother and I have very, very, very different tastes.  However, when it comes to the polish she chooses, she always super on trend.  And that's saying something for a lawyer.  Last fall, she came home with a color very similar to this Orly shade.  Everyone and their sister went ga-ga for it, but because she uses gel polish or some such chemical-y thing, it couldn't be bought in a store.  So I went fishing on Google Images and through nail blogs looking for whatever this color was.  This and Diamond Cosmetics Serendipity were the closest things I can find.  

And this is lovely, isn't it?  It feels like Pixie Dust and looks like glazed sugar on my nails up close.  Further away, it looks really current with the neutral/grey trend that has stuck around since last fall.  

The first two pictures are without flash, the last two are with.  I didn't realize until I uploaded how bad a cleanup job I did.  I'm actually kinda embarrassed but I'll play the "don't look at the man behind the curtain" role (Wizard of Oz, anyone?) and just request you look at the shiny objects in the picture. 


  1. I don't know if I've ever seen this one. So pretty!

  2. It really is a great color for fall and spring. If it wasn't such a pain to take off (glitter...ugh...), I would wear it more.
