Orly Sparking Garbage: Swatch and Review

Hello gentle readers.

I have wanted the polish featured today since it was first released. I finally got around to picking it up a couple of weeks ago and I am so glad that I did. Orly Sparkling Garbage is a gorgeous fine holo glitter topper in shades of green and blue with sparks of yellow, orange, red, even pink. So sparkly and beautiful. And the name is irresistible. I don't have any of the other polishes from the Spring collection but I may still hunt a few down and pick them up. Tho the Fall collection is due to release pretty soon and I have seen pictures of it and oh, boy, is it ever pretty! Maybe I'll just hold off. Save my money.

Since talk of Fall is beginning to hit the blogs here and there, I decided to layer Orly Sparkling Garbage over a Fall polish. I chose Orly Lucky Duck, a beautiful, rich mallard green crelly with a simply gorgeous formula. Very Fall. This swatch is one coat of Sparkling Garbage over Lucky Duck topped with Seche Vite. Photos were snapped outside in the sun.

Curse my wretched, holo eating camera!

Orly Sparkling Garbage applies beautifully and it dries in very good time. Top coat gives maximum sparkle and shine and that beautiful smooth, glossy finish that I love so well. Top coat doesn't dull the holo-licious quality even a tiny bit.

Do you own Orly Sparkling Garbage? Do you love it? What different colours have you layered it over? Please do tell. If you don't yet have it, I found my bottle on Amazon and last time I went sifting for polish, I do believe I saw a listing for Lucky Duck, as well.

Are you beginning to look forward to Autumn as much as I am? Here in my part of the good old U. S. of A. we have a whole lot of Summer to go, but a girl can dream, can't she? Thank you so much for popping in and reading and have a terrific day!


  1. Love sparkling garbage, it's just so...sparkly. Always a good thing ;)

  2. Sparkly is definitely a very good thing. :D

  3. This is on my wish list! Such a gorgeous color! I wish it was fall too, I'm not a fan of the hot weather, lol.

  4. I've wanted this for forever, but every time I see it, I keep putting off buying it. I think it might finally need to come home with me before it gets a complex and disappears.

  5. I just got this a few days ago. I can't wait to try it! :)
    Your combo looks absolutely stunning Erika!

  6. Thank you so much!

    You need too get this on your nails, it's amazing.

  7. Get it before it is HTF. It was a LE, I doubt they are making any more. I am thinking of getting a backup bottle, while I can. :)

  8. Get it. It's worth tracking down and having. You'll love it.

    Fall is my favorite season. I look forward to it as soon as the weather heats up. I am so ready for it, now!

  9. Absolutely approaching Fall Brain Mode. This polish did it for me, too. I picked it up, soon after it came out, and painted a swatch stick. Wasn't inspired. Now, I see yours....Yowzah.

    Brilliant move to paint Sparkling Garbage over Lucky Duck.

    OK...I'm now thinking it would look neat over a buttercup yellow. Will give it a shot.

    Haven't seen any of the Orly Fall colors. You've piqued my curiosity, so I'm off to hunt down the pix.

    Thanks for the good read, Erika.

  10. OH MY GOODNESS. This glittery polish is amazing! I bet its awesome in real life!!

  11. It really is. Grab a bottle and see for yourself. :D

  12. Fall Brain Mode. I'm starting to head in that direction, too. :)

    Okay, now I have to try this over yellow. I was also curious about how it would look over pink and blue.

    Darn it, I can't remember on who's blog I saw the previews of the Orly Fall pretties. Something told me to link it, that day but nooo... I thought I'd remember. The brain, It's the first thing to go. After the tits. :P

  13. I just got mine at Sally on clearance and it was but one get one so I picked up Pretty Ugly also. This polish is amazing. I actually put 3 coats over a nude so there was no visible nail line and even that way is stunning. I had an accent nail of Nicole By OPI in That's What I Mint and it wasn't sparkly enough next to Sparkling Garbage so I put one coat over it. This polish is one of my all time favorites.

  14. You found this on clearance? Lucky duck! That mani sounds amazing. :D

  15. I love Sparkling Garbage! It looks great over China Glaze Aquadelic.
