Tags: Nail Varnish, Orly
I’ve been looking forward to seeing this collection, the Orly Pinup collection, inspired by iconic pink up girls, featuring glitter and creme finishes. To me these aren’t classic pin up girl colours which I’d think of as being red, royal blue, white and black maybe? Anyway, thats irrelevant really since these colours are gorgeous!
First up is Va Va Voom, Pink Neon Creme.
Firstly, like pretty much all true neon polishes when dry this is not glossy (as seen in my pictures) but a slick of top coat adds gloss, I quite likes the not-quite-matte finish so I left it as it was. This is stunning an so incredibly bright. My picture are making this look more orange than it is, its really a classic highlighter blue pink and so bright you’ll need sunglasses to look at it! Gorgeous!
Next is Here Comes Trouble, Sparkle Green
A stunning bright green glitter made of varying sizes of glitter. It’s so incredibly bright it looks almost as thought it’s lit up somehow, I’ve never seen a colour like it! Removing it was a pain in the bum as with most glitters but actually, it wasn’t as bad as many I’ve used! This was two coats and I would think that for best effect three would even out any little patches.
Corvette Cutie, Coral Creme.
This again is considerably brighter than my pictures show although it isn’t as bright as Va Va Voom, and it’s much less in your face. I love this and can see me wearing it a lot over the Summer, not that I ever get a tan but it would look fabulous with a tan!
Lastly is Bubbly Bombshell, Purple Glitter.
I’m afraid I copped out when swatching this one. I rarely wear glitters, not because I don’t like them but because I just can’t stand the removal and after removing Here Comes Trouble I just couldn’t face removing a full hand of this one! I should have done though because this is so gorgeous. Again, different sizes of glitter and I’ve included the second shot even though it’s blurry as it really shows off the pink flash in the glitter. It’s so stunning and I when I have more time and patience I will be trying this out fully on both hands, so when I do I’ll do another post because it’s really special!
So there we have it, the Orly Pinup collection and it’s absolutely gorgeous, if bright’s are your thing.
