I love colors with a blue iridescence. I purchased Orly Royal Velvet months ago. When I was at Sally’s this week, I saw Mysterious Curse, from the Dark Shadows collection, and had to have it. When I got home and swatched it, I realized I had another color that was identical to it… Royal Velvet.

Now, I love this color. It’s a deep dark purple with strong blue iridescence. However, I don’t need two of them. To my eyes, these colors are identical.

I’m really disappointed in Orly for releasing the same color twice under different names.

Needless to say, I returned Mysterious Curse.

What do you think of companies releasing the same color under a different name?
