Thanks for dolling me up, Orly!

Cali Beach-Inspired Nail Polish? Yes, Please!

The thing about bringing American fashion and beauty brands to Asia is that we have to adapt to their season. But I don’t mind, especially since the weather in Manila is always a mix of wet and dry every month of the year. Joining the influx of summer trends from the U.S. is Orly.

Orly’s Pacific Coast Highway Summer 2016 collection. See a color you like?
The launch is in collaboration with Instax. Check out this fun Instax booth.
Kate was here.

Their new Pacific Coast Highway Summer Collection is inspired by Los Angeles’ coastlines—from the seaside cliffs to the tiny beach towns that pop up every few miles.

The collection comes in six neon colors with names that will make you want to crank up your Spotify vacation playlist—Road Trippin’ (yellow), Summer Sunset (orange), Put The Top Down (light pink), Scenic Route (purple), Life’s A Beach (red), and Paradise Cove (dark pink).

Chilling at Santa Monica Pier! Kidding. It’s Orly Philippines’ photo booth.

A number of beauty enthusiasts and I were among the first to test Orly’s new collection at Nailaholics in Gateway Mall last week. They transformed the nail salon into a surfer girl getaway, where we were treated to mani-pedis, a vegetarian feast, and photo sessions with Instax.

Thanks for dolling me up, Orly!
My digits go on the mani cam. Surf’s up, dudettes!
