Orly Dark Shadows Collection

I am so excited to share the Dark Shadows Collection with you!  I have been dying to get my hands on these polishes since I first saw them a couple months ago.  Now I get to share them with you and 1 lucky Reader will win this collection in my Giveaway
This collection was inspired by the Dark Shadows remake, directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins.  Each polish was created to capture the dark undertones of the film.
Dark Shadows has always been one of my favorite shows.  I remember being glued to the TV when the remake was on in 1991.  I was so depressed when they cancelled the show! :(  So you can understand my excitement for the movie!!

Instead of bombing you with all the polishes, I will dedicate a post to each one.  But here is a sneak preview:


The first polish I am sharing is Buried Alive.  This is a gorgeous brown polish that has a wonderful gold and green shimmer.  When the sun hits this polish it is simply amazing! The polish shows differently depending on how and what type of light hits it.
The polish was opaque in 2 coats and would have been a great application if it wasn't for the wonky brush!  I am amazed that such a large and popular company like Orly would not catch this during production!  Other than the brush, this is a beautiful polish!

In order to present these polishes as accurate as possible, I did not apply a base or top coat.  You are seeing these polishes on their own with no help.
