This collection from ORLY features six new shades for Summer. It seems ORLY has stayed away from the NEON trend and opted for more subtle but still vibrant shades and I like that. I think ORLY have covered all bases and offer a selection of shades which most people would associate with a Summer holiday. Although I have to say I’m on the fence about the dark blue shade – Under The Stars, I am not sure it fits in with the collection for me, what do you think?
I found the two shades I was testing to be opaque in two coats and the formula was fluid and easy to work with. The shade For The First Time (Pink) is my favourite out of the two I have tested and it looked instantly Summery on my nails. This colour would look gorgeous with a nice tan (which I do not have). Under The Stars (blue) had a little sparkle to it and it is a pretty shade but I think this is more of a Autumn / Winter shade.
The collection features six shades,
- No Regrets – Vibrant, bold fuschia pink
- Sea You Soon – Sweet blue with a shimmer running through
- Summer Fling – Gorgeous peach
- Surfer Dude – Stunning bright orange
- Under The Stars – Deep blue shimmer
- For The First Time – Pretty bright purple / pink cream shade
The blue took a little longer to dry and I wish I’d have used three coats as I felt it wasn’t as opaque as I’d hoped. The pink shade was stunning and I am still wearing it on my toes, having chosen to reapply it for the 3rd time in a month. It looks super cute with my open toe sandals and it is for sure my go to nail polish for Summer 2017.
I do like the look of a couple of the other shades in this collection – No Regrets and Summer Fling. They both are very beachy shades and I can imagine they would look beautiful with a tan.
