Orly Wild Wisteria

I don't have too many Orly nail polishes but what I do have I love. This one is no exception. Wild Wisteria is from the Spring 2010 Bloom collection. Sadly my pictures are not quite color accurate. Purples are so vexing to photograph! Imagine it a touch less blue.

Orly Wild Wisteria, shade

Wild Wisteria is a rich grape creme and very pigmented. This is two coats but I almost got away with one. Dreamy application with very little cleanup required. I love polishes that stay where you put them. Let's see...base coat was Nail Tek II Foundation and top coat was Poshe Fast Drying. Wear time was excellent: according to my notes, 5 days with no chipping, only minor tipwear. Perhaps longer if I hadn't felt the need to change colors. =)


  1. So so pretty. I love the name too.

  2. One of my favorites! This is indeed a tricky shade to capture.

  3. I don't have a lot of Orly's either, but this one is one of my fav.

  4. I'm so glad I found your blog!! Oh, this polish looks heavenly on you. Now, tell me why is it still in my untrieds?? :)

  5. @jaljen The name does fit perfectly, doesn't it?

    @KarenD Yep, those purples sure are crafty!

    @Biba I'd like to expand my Orly collection, but with the price changes online recently I fear it's going to be slower than I could wish, lol.

    @rmcandlelight Thanks for dropping by! I bet this would look fantastic on you. And don't worry, it was in my untrieds for almost a year ((what are we thinking?!))
