Tonight I have my picks from the Orly Baked Collection, which has six new bright shades, or as it's described in the Australian press release, a vivacious palette of six uber-saturated colours!
First up though, I want to share the nail art I create with the polishes, because I love how it turned out! I attempted another mini leopard print design, and this time I've managed to make it a little smaller than the last one I did, but I'm still a way off how small I want to make it (which is like Tips and Topcoats).
I used three polishes from the Orly Baked collection, Ablaze, Neon Heat and Tropical Pop. To create this mani I first started with a white base. Once that way dry I did a full gradient using all three colours on my middle finger, and a half nail (taped off) on my index and pinky. I really loved the golder shimmery finish that Ablaze had, so for the final sponge I did one layer of Ablaze over the entire gradient. It didn't change the colour at all but just applied the golden shimmer over the full nail.
Next I painted the mini leopard print free hand using black acrylic paint and the dotted in Neon Heat and Tropical Pop to make a slight gradient effect. Lastly I added some stripes on the pinky and thumb nails to finish up the design.
Here are some swatches of each colour on it's own.
Ablaze - Bright orange with a gold shimmer.
Neon Heat - Fuchsia Creme
Tropical Pop - Neon Orange creme
I was really impressed with the formula on these. Usually I wear a white base when I'm putting on a neon polish, but these neons didn't need it. I used two coats for Ablaze and Neon Heat and three coats for Tropical Pop.
The Orly Baked collection will be available in Australia in July. Check www.orlybeauty.com.au for stockists.
