Wow, Orly! Taking us into the weekend with some colours that are so neon they’re hard to look at! Notably, Tropical Pop (the yellow) and Ablaze (on the right of yellow). Ablaze is a such a strong neon that it’s not showing up at the intensity it really is (it doesn’t on the press release either) so you’ll just have to imagine a pink so bright and acid that you need sunglasses!
The Orly Baked Collection is really adventurous – Lush (the green shade) is a lime green jelly base with green glitter strands – it’s the only one I don’t like – I tried it lastnight and couldn’t even live with it on my nails overnight so it had to come off! I’m not sure if it’s a new system of formulating, but Orly’s Baked shades are milled to microfine particles and then heat treated at very high temperatures to disperse the pigments smoothly. They really are very smooth (but so is most polish these days).
Going round the wheel starting at green: Lush, Hot Tropics, Tropical Pop, Ablaze, Neon and Saturated. All I can tell you is that they’re brighter in the flesh – personally, if you want to really turbo charge the shades, start with a coat of white polish as an undercoat, and then top with gloss. These colours aren’t high gloss so if you like a super-shine, you’ll need it.
The Orly Baked Collection launches in June for £10.95 HERE.
