Orly Summer 2014 Baked Collection Swatches & Review

Purchased By Me

Lately I have been trying to actually post my purchases a little more.  Usually I make time for products sent for review, and set aside personal purchases to post later… and then it never happens.

I actually spend way more than I should on cosmetics of all kinds and want to do at least 1 post a week that is a what I bought.  This week, it’s the Orly Baked Collection for Summer 2014.  I eyed this for awhile and when I was buying the China Glaze ‘The Giver’ Collection, I saw they carried this too, so why not?

Let’s take a look at these 6 sizzling colors!

Hot Tropics

Hot Tropics

Hot Tropics is my favorite of the bunch.  This is a bright pink toned purple with intense gold glass flecks.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Ablaze

Ablaze 1

Ablaze is a neon orange with gold glass fleck shimmer in it.  Super super bright and the shimmer really gives it even more oomph.

Ablaze 2

Tropical Pop

Tropical Pop 2

Tropical Pop is a yellow based orange neon creme.  This one is super bright and the formula was a DREAM to apply!  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Saturated

Saturated

Saturated is a deep and vivid violet creme.  My photos are coming out a touch blue, and it’s much more purple than my camera would capture.  This is the darkest of the group, but very pretty still.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Lush

Lush 1

Ever buy a polish just to complete a collection? That’s pretty much what happened with Lush.  I like the sheer yellowy green jelly base and gold shimmer, but the silver holographic bar glitter isn’t my style.  I used 3 coats of Lush on it’s own for these photos and while I’m not a fan of bar glitter, they did behave well for this mani. Had the bar glitter not been there, I would have loved it.

Overview

AM I happy with my purchase?  Yes!  5 of the 6 polishes I absolutely loved.  Lush was ok.  If I wasn’t obsessive about completing collections, I probably wouldn’t have bought it.  Application was good on all of the polishes and it’s definitely a nice, bright collection!

Price: $4.25

The bar glitter really made Lush a huge fail for me, I thought it was such an odd polish, especially from Orly!

Lush is a love-it or hate-it polish. I love it, mostly because it’s different. I’m usually not a fan of the long bar glitter (I love the micro bar glitters), but it works in this one. I love that Orly always has a combination of finishes in each collection, even though they are only 6 polishes. As much as I am not really a green fan, this one turned out to be a favorite for its uniqueness.

I agree completely. It is a love it or hate it, and for me, bar glitter I just cannot love. But it is unique and I can’t say I have one similar in my collection – whereas I do have close dupes of the rest.

Lush is so sheer that it needs to be layered. I love it. Look it’s got little threads and tiny glitters. How pretty that is.
