Orly Mysterious Curse Swatches & Review

Hello everyone,
     
Today I will be showing you Orly Mysterious Curse from the Dark Shadow's Collection.First I want to thank my husband for going to Sally's and talking them into putting it on hold and selling it to me early! If it wasn't for him I probably wouldn't have gotten it. I'm such a lucky girl :)
Anyway, I was really excited to get this one.I love duochrome's and this one is a beautiful purple/blue duo,my 2 favorite color's! Unfortunately the application sucked.It really pains me to say that about Orly because they have always been my favorite and I've never had any problem's with them before.It was very thick and goopy so I put some thinner in it hoping I could fix it but it didn't work :(. There was a lot of bald spots and bubbles.I used 3 coats to try and even it out and it seemed to never dry thoroughly. I am very disappointed with this one and if I would have swatched it when I got it I would have taken it back.Oh well,on to the picture's.







Also as you can see there was some pulling and shrinkage.Boo!
Please excuse the clean up. I was quite upset with it so I didn't want to bother with the clean up!

What do you think? Did you buy the Dark Shadow's Collection? Is your Mysterious Curse like mine?
I love hearing from you so feel free to comment!

  1. I used mine about 3 times now and had no problems at all! Maybe just a bad batch? All 4 Dark Shadow polishes were great to apply.

    1. I'm thinking it might just be a bad batch :( I read on another blog that they had the same problem.

    2. I got mine out today and it was similar to yours...I had a lot of bald spots took 2-3 coats...I can't compare to other Orlys because this is my first I was really disappointed in the formula but it's an awesome color!

    3. Hmm. My husband said they might have had a bunch of the old Royal Velvet's sitting around and probably slapped the Mysterious Curse sticker on it and sent them out not knowing they were bad.I thought about contacting them but thought I was the only one with this issue so I didn't want to seem crazy. It is really disappointing because it's super pretty :(
      Thanks for letting me know, it sucks but I'm glad I'm not the only one!!

  4. It's kind of like a fine shimmer version of Galaxy Girl, only a little less red. So, so gorgeous!

  5. I think there was something wrong with the earlier batch I just got mine and there were no problems.

  6. I know I'm a little late to the game here, but I just got mine (had the rest of the set, but was missing this one). It went on like a dream. I think I might have gotten a later batch, perhaps?
