The gathering, after all, options a number of vibrant Nail Lacquers, and the truth that they occur to return in units of three (at $31 per trio) impressed me to combine and match the shades to extra intently resemble the combos present in Lisa Frank paintings. The Markie trio, named for Frank’s well-known rainbow unicorn, options the shades Your Zorbit (lime inexperienced), Sky is the Restrict (vivid blue), and Make a Splash (true purple), and the Dancing Dolphins trio comes with the shades Purrty in Pink, Straightforward Tiger (juicy orange), and Sundae Sunshine (a delicate but daring yellow). As with all of Orly’s beloved lacquers, they go on easily and look opaque with simply a few coats (although I like to recommend three coats for true opacity with Sundae Sunshine).
