Orly Sapphire Silk

I love swapping on MUA! I recently swapped for Orly Sapphire Silk, which is a polish I thought "that's pretty, but I don't really need another teal creme" and didn't buy. But a good swap offer came up and now it's mine anyways ^_^

Orly Sapphire Silk - 2 coats, nice formula. A little squishy, almost! I think this might be my favourite teal...

Here are a bunch of comparisons:

Orly Sapphire Silk vs. Illamasqua Muse - Muse is one of my favourite teals also! It has a beautiful formula - almost 1 coater.

Orly Sapphire Silk vs. OPI Ski Teal We Drop - I really lemmed STWD, but was kind of let down by it. It seems very dark on me. I actually might let this one go now that I have the Orly!

Orly Sapphire Silk vs. CND Urban Oasis - The CND has an AMAZING 1 coat formula. And the brush is awesome.

And here are all four on one hand. I kind of fail, because 3 of these 4 I have labeled as "one of my favourite" teals. -.-


I'm pretty much all caught up on my swatching now! I have a few swaps and blog sale purchases coming in over the next few days, but I think I'm going to switch into "Brand for a Month"-mode to help me de-stash a bit! I'm planning on only keep polishes I absolutely *LOVE*, so I need to give every polish a fair chance :)

I'm not sure whether I should start with OPI, Essie, or Zoya. Have you ever done a "Brand for a [time period]" before? How did it go for you?


  1. is it anything close to suzi says feng shui? thanks for the great comparisons...=D

  2. These are all gorgoeus teals! I have removed Orly's Sapphire Silk off my wish list, beacuse I thought I have enough teals.  But now I see they are all quite different... Hmmm....

    Can't wait for this "brand" series!

  3. I passed on Sapphire Silk because I have so many teals.  I actually thought it would be closer to Ski Teal We Drop...that is one of my favorite dark teals...but it is quite a bit lighter..  I may need it now

  4. Yep, totally gorgeous on you. And I see nothing wrong with having a bunch that you call, "one of my favorite teals." But then again, I might not be the person best qualified to comment on that. >_>

    Look at all those dusty teals!  I love them all...but I think I like Sapphire Silk best.  Dang it!  LOL

  6. This is so dusty and gorgeous. I'm really starting to lean towards this kind of shade

  7. You know, I had previously talked myself out of Sapphire Silk...but this post has changed my decision. :P
    I've never swatched by brand--although I really should--so I look foward to your swatches.

  8. I really love Orly lately, and you are right, Ski Teal We Drop has nothing on Sapphire Silk. It's too dark

  9. I have never done a Brand for a period before but I do have to start doing some swatching so I can figure out the dupes in my collection. I want to get to the point of having only polishes I love!

  10. Haha, teals are a weak spot for me :)

  11. Its probably close in regular lighting conditions, maybe? I think it's worth a look though!

  12. I agree! I totally love dusty shades now

  13. Haha, I had talked myself out of it too, but ended up getting it anyway

  14. Yay! I actually had to sort mine by color to de dupe my stash

  15. I love these type of dusty/muted shades. v.appealing!
