The Illuminati Doesn’t Stand a Chance Against the Orly Secret Society Holiday Collection

Orly Secret Society Holiday Collection



Come here. NO! Don’t look. Keep your eyes down. Walk toward me, but don’t look like you’re walking toward me. Act like you’re examining the sidewalk, but then mosey on up next to me.

There, that’s it. Shh… Act cool. Now I have a proposition for you…

Before you answer, you should know something, though: it’s a Voyeuristic Adventure.

Orly Voyeuristic Adventure

Two coats of Voyeuristic Adventure, a cool-toned rosy golden chrome

I was going to do it alone, but then I thought, whom do I know who likes secret societies and masquerade balls?

Oh, yeah! You. 🙂 Care to accompany me? It’s a Masked Ceremony…

Orly Masked Ceremony

Two coats of Masked Ceremony, a glittery black and silver with big square bits of silver glitter and hexagonal flecks of purple glitter

As far as what we should wear, it’s a Macabre Masquerade.

Orly Macabre Masquerade

Three coats of Macabre Masquerade, a glittery multicolored royal blue with gold, red, green and purple glitter (I’m wearing three coats here, but I think two coats would have been enough)

Yup, it’s supposed to be quite the Lavish Bash, so I’m thinking formal attire and painted paws.

Two coats of Lavish Bash, a sheer golden glitter with multicolored rectangular and hexagonal glitter. Incidentally, this one looks much more colorful in real life than it does in this pic. The colors create an almost holographic rainbow effect.

If we walk in with bare nails, the host may wonder if were even invited. We don’t want anyone asking us, “What’s the Password?” Because I actually forgot it in my car (my bad).

Orly What's the Password

Two coats of What’s the Password, a glittery golden orange


Whatever you do, don’t take off your mask while we’re there, because I expect this to be a Risque Encounter…

Orly Risque Encounter

Two coats of Risque Encounter, a pigmented, creamy candy apple red (I’m wearing two coats, but you could get away with one)

The Orly Secret Society Holiday Collection

Orly Secret Society

  • Six limited edition shades for $8.50 each
  • Coming next month to salons, Sally Beauty and Ulta Stores (and online)
  • DBP- toluene- and formaldehyde-free
  • The glittery formulas are definitely on the thicker side. I think two coats work well, but three kicks ’em up to the next level.
  • Don’t miss Macabre Masquerade and Masked Ceremony — my favorites of the bunch! Both are packed with enough glitter and pigment to power a Las Vegas revue for weeks, and they look the most unique to me.

MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+ (the thick formulas aren’t the easiest to work with)

    lol on the title. this collection is not wowing me, but generally, i think orly is an under-rated nail polish brand. their stuff is generally good (color, brush, size, price) and i’ve been getting more and more from them.

    What’s the password reminds me of Jinx from OPI 007 nail series
