Since Pantone announced the two beautiful colors of the year 2016 – makeup brands have gone crazy about them releasing products in both shades. I have recently found a beautiful ORLY Harmonious Mess nail polish that is a perfect reflection of the light lavender blue Serenity shade that seems to have already become one of the most popular colors of the upcoming fashion season.

ORLY Harmonious Mess is a part of the ORLY Summer 2013 Mash Up collection. It is a beautiful light lavender/periwinkle blue shade with slightly purple undertones and a pure cream finish. Although it is not that unique – I really like the purple undertone that makes such a light blue shade cooler toned and as a result more wearable.
Again, I really like the formula of this particular nail polish. I have been enjoying using other ORLY nail polishes as well and I have to say that formula-wise these nail polishes can be compared to Essie polishes. Harmonious Mess is a cream nail polish and the consistency is thick enough to make the application as easy as possible. It goes on smoothly and looks almost opaque in one coat. The second cost allows you to get the full coverage. The best part of it is that this nail polish evens out on its own that can sometimes be a problem with thicker cream nail polishes.
Besides being easy to apply, this nail polish works nicely with any base and top coats and dries quickly enough. It lasted on my nails for six days with no chipping and very little tip wear. The tip wear was barely noticeable and I am sure I could get away with it for a couple more days.
ORLY Harmonious Mess is a truly beautiful periwinkle blue shade that looks like a true Serenity color to me. I do not usually gravitate towards light blue shades as these tend to look a bit alien on my nails. But this particular shade is gorgeous! It has this tiny bit of purple in it that makes it completely different from all these light blues on the market. If you wan to be trendy this spring – check out the Harmonious Mess. It is a beautiful color and has excellent application and wear time characteristics. Love it!
Thank you very much for your attention.
Have an amazing day!
