AMW Report: Orly's Feel The Vibe Launch at Pico De Loro

Happy Saturday!!!
Last week, I received an invite for an overnight getaway for Orly's Feel The Vibe Launch at Pico De Loro, Batangas.  I immediately wrote out a draft telling the invitee how sad I am I will miss the event!  As you know, I have a day job and leaving a day prior to the weekend is illegal, leaving 2 days prior to the weekend is worth "death penalty"!  *laughs*.  Before clicking "send", I had a quick chat with Mr. AMW then my mom and both of them said the same thing..."Why not?  You deserve the break, you need it!" 

And guess what?  I listened to the 2 important people in my life and I'm glad I did because I was able to relax and rock the neon-colored nails!

Rewind to where everything started.....

Everyone met up at SM MOA area and off we went via coaster!  It was a long, bumpy 3-hour ride but we were greeted with friendly staffs at Pico Sands Hotel!  Ooohh, I am dreaming about the "welcome drink", I'm craving for it now!

After lunch (I'll talk more about Pico de Loro and food tomorrow!), we were drove to the Beach Front area for the SPARTY!

Once we were at Arribada Lounge, we were immediately greeted with a huge Orly poster.  

 And the star of the day!  Orly's Feel the Vibe Collection are laid out for us to check them out!

"Feel the Vibe" is a collection that showcase six gorgeous electrifying neons!  I may not be a neon-colored outfit wearer but I can always be adventurous on my nails!
Left to right ---
  • Melt Your Popsicle (Orange Neon)
  • Day Glow (Pearl White Creme)
  • Skinny Dip (Azure Neon)
  • Glow Stick (Yellow Neon)
  • Beach Cruiser (Fuchsia Neon)
  • After Party (Midnight Blue Shimmer)
All of the shades were a hit!  This is a limited edition set so if any of the shades above catches your fancy, do get them this month for Php349.75 (approx $8.10) at Purebeauty Store, First Aid Greenbelt, PCX (Rockwell, Ermita, Alabang Town Center), Watsons (Greenbelt 5, Ayala Cebu), Beauty by SM (Makati, Megamall, Fairview), Landmark Trinoma, Beauty Cocktails, Robinsons Department Store Ermita, Robinsons Galleria. 

What I love about Orly polishes are the fact that these are Free of DBP, Formladehyde and Toluene.  They may chip easier than regular polishes but you know you're safe from all the harm chemicals!

Earth, my room mate, smartly swatches the shades before she takes her pick!  Most of us voted for Skinny Dip (Azure Neon) and she listened and rocked the color!

We were divided into 2 batches and I was part of the first and we had our manicures and pedicures done by the wonderful Orly Ladies!

The lounge was air-conditioned and servers served us Iced Tea or Mojitos to hydrate us!  

What did the rest of the ladies do?  Well, they were required to give us massages!  *laughs*  I am just joking!  Patty, whom I got to meet during Nuffnang Bloggers' Award 2011 in Malaysia, goofed around!  I am so happy to see this one happy soul once again! :)

The rest were free to roam around the beach or sit at the 2 table set-up for, yet another, food flooding!  *laughs*  It was only an hour or 2 apart from our lunch!

 But who can resist such food?  I know I can't!  Immediately right after my manicure and pedicure session, I went straight to the table to enjoy my nachos, pizzas and potato balls!

Thanks to Orly's Quick Dry as I survived without any smudges!  The second batch of girls were ready for their own SPARTY!

It was also a wonderful time to catch up and get to know more about each other!

Oh, we were also with a nice gentleman who took photos of us during the event!  We had a solo picture of us with our well-manicured nails!  I believe photos will be uploaded at ORLY PH Facebook page soon!  So watch out for it!

As for me, Earth and Trixie, the Butikis (Lizards) *sorry insider joke* we went straight to the beach and enjoyed the sun!  See how gorgeous Skinny Dip (Azure Neon) on my feet???

As for my hands, I picked Fuchsia Neon and Patty went for the color that spells PATTY!  Yellow Neon!

I want to thank the lovely ladies whom I met during the event! 

We may come from different backgrounds but we all got united with one thing --- Our love for beauty and for things that makes us feel beautiful!

I also would like to thank Sprint Asia Beauty and SM Hotels and Conventions Corporation for the wonderful extended weekend that seldom happens.
