Orly Sweet Collection

Orly Snowcone (2 coats)

 Orly Cotton Candy (2 coats) 


So as promised, here are two colors from the upcoming Sweet Collection from Orly due out in April of this year. First up is Snowcone. The description says, "Blueberry must be your favorite Snowcone flavor in Baby Blue Creme." I don't really get blueberry from this, but it really is an awesome baby blue creme color. In real life the color is slightly darker, but still really beautiful. The second polish is called cotton candy. The description for this one says, "Can't get enough Cotton Candy in Baby Pink Creme." Of course I can see why they called this one cotton candy, but I think it is slightly more complex than they lead on. For some reason I think there is a tiny hint of peach in there to give it a little something extra instead of a boring light pink creme.

As for the application, just look how smooth they are! As always, cremes are harder to apply than shimmers or glitters, so it is slightly thick. I didn't need to thin it out at all to use them though. Also, they are very pigmented and only needed 2 coats to be opaque. The first coat was slightly streaky, but there was no visible nail line after the second. Overall, I really like these and I can't wait to get the rest of the collection in April. Some people were saying, "Oh, pastel cremes for Spring, how original," but I really dig these. Just seeing these bright colors lifts my mood. What do you think, will you be purchasing any of this collection?

I almost forgot, the polishes came with cute little lipglosses that you can see in my last picture. As far as I remember, these weren't really sticky, but I don't really have much to say about them right now. I will edit this post when I have more time to use it.
