Back in March I first mentioned Orly’s upcoming Fall 2013 collection called Surreal. I’d only seen one photo of it and I wasn’t even sure of the colors. Well, more pictures are surfacing, and I’d say the colors are indeed surreal for a fall collection.
Here’s the not-terribly-descriptive blurb from the company:
This season, obscure the line between real and virtual: Marvel in the mystical. Channel the magical, the ethereal, the eclectic, the unexpected. Drench yourself in a sweet dream-like daze—and take nails psychedelically off-center with Surreal, the new Fall 2013 color collection from ORLY. The time has come to recolor reality. Daydream to the extreme. Free-fall into fantasy with a digitally saturated palette that dazzles and enchants.
Um…. OK then. I don’t know about you, but that tells me nothing about the actual polishes!
Here’s the set:
The color names are:
- Pink Waterfall – creme
- Pixie Powder – shimmer
- Angel Rain – shimmer
- Purple Poodle – shimmer
- Teal Unreal – creme
- Digital Glitter – glitter

Very pretty, but these don’t look fall-like to me. Maybe they mean fall in the Southern Hemisphere, which is the Northern Hemisphere’s spring. While I applaud Orly’s going in a new direction for a fall collection, I have to admit that these don’t grab me… well, maybe the teal creme. Come autumn and back-to-school days and falling leaves, I’m in the mood for dark reds and golds and coppers.
SRP is $8.50 per bottle, and the collection is tentatively scheduled to be released August 20th.
