Orly- Mirrorball [Swatch]

Howdy, guys! Today I've got the recently famous Orly- Mirrorball to show you! I didn't realize that I absolutely had to have this polish until it was well sold-out in Sally Beauty Supplies in my area, so I actually had to track it down on Amazon since I didn't want to make a huge (or similar) order.

Mirrorball is from the Winter 2014 Sparkle collection, and was the definite hit out of the six polishes released in the set.

Mirrorball is a light silver, linear holographic polish that also has small holographic hexes scattered throughout. It is really aptly named!

Artificial light, two coats:

So, I just don't think photos do this polish any justice! You really need to see it in person to get the real idea. I did take a potato video for Instagram to show some of the holo during movement:

Window-filtered daylight:

Outside, shade:


I didn't think I was going to get any chance at a sun shot during the three days I'd planned to wear this one, but I left it on an extra day and- behold! So, yes, the sun photos show tipwear, but that is on day four! I think this polish wore pretty well for me!

Formula: It has a medium consistency, but is slightly viscous and sticks to itself a little bit. That said, it actually goes over the nail really nicely, and is very forgiving! I had a good level of opacity in two coats, and I was pretty happy with the formula overall!

What do you think?
Have you tried Mirrorball?


  1. I want this polish so bad. I've seen swatches of it if floating around and think its amazing. Your swatches just make me so envious that you have it.

  2. I love this. Now I know what all these girls in these nail polish FB groups are blabbing about. Beautiful swatches as always.

  3. Sooooo pretty! I just got this too and I am blogging about it tomorrow! This polish is drop dead gorgeous! Super impressive for a commercial line!

  4. So pretty! It really reminds me of a Literary Lacquers-esque kinda shade. Nice to see a commercial brand getting with the times!! ;)

  5. I got this a while ago but have yet to wear it...what's WRONG with me?!?! I will have to rock this beauty soon! Thanks so much for sharing XOXOXO

  6. Gosh this is absolutely stunning! I can understand the hype surrounding Mirrorball :)
