Electronica...

The beginning of July is usually filled with fall and back to school releases in the nail lacquer world.  This year is no different and the new Orly Electronica collection for back to school 2012 is already hitting store shelves!  Thankfully there are only four lacquers in this collection unlike the Flash Glam FX collection with 22 lacquers!!  I am unfortunately missing one from this collection because it was not in stock.

The four lacquers are Shockwave, Synchro, Preamp, and Decoded (not pictured).   Shockwave is an electric blue ultra glossy creme, no top coat used.  Synchro is a dusty rose mauve-ish pink duochrome that has a slight blue flash to it.  This shade isn't quite as duochrome as I had hoped but its still pretty.  Preamp might be my favorite from this collection!  Its a blue based pink packed with shimmer.  Two coats were used for each shade and there were no application issues. 

Orly Shockwave
Electric blue creme


Orly Synchro
Dusty rose mauve-ish pink duochrome



Orly Preamp
Shimmering blue based pink

  1. I had high hopes on Synchro, but I'm not to sure about it any more. But Shockwave is a very nice color.

    1. That's exactly how I feel! It's a pretty color but not what I was hoping it would be!

  3. I am just automatically drawn to anything that is pink and metallic, so I love Synchro! By the way, your swatch pictures are really nice! :D

  8. Sadly, I'm disappointed in this collection. The promo picture looked so awesome and these just fall flat for me. I swear, Orly has dropped the ball on this spring's collections.

    Your swatches look nice though. :)

  9. Whoa Preamp... gourgeous! Synchro is a little bit less stunning than I imagined, but I'd love to see it layered over a red or a black! :D

    1. You have to see Preamp in person! I wish Synchro was more duochrome but you may be onto something there with layering it!!

    1. I usually buy my Orly lacquers from Sally's. They always have a coupon and with beauty card its a great deal! If I can't find what shade I want from Sally's then I go to ULTA.

  12. I haven't seen these yet; thanks for the swatches! I admit that Synchro confuses me--seems like that belongs in a different collection, Retro Roses or something. :)
