Today I’d like to share with you a nail polish collection that was launched in the lead up to the Australian summer, the *ORLY Baked Collection;


What They Say:

This new ORLY Smokey collection is a limited edition collection is infused with heat treated pigments, speciality micas and minerals. The pigments in the Baked shades are milled to a micro fine particle size and then heat treated at high temperatures to ensure pigment easily disperses into the base. This allows for an ultra-smooth application and maximum colour pay-off, plus Vitamin A, E and B5 to help nourish and protect the nails.

"All ORLY colours are 4 free – free from DBP, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Tolulene. Each ORLY nail lacquer bottle delivers a vibrant, chip resistant formula while the brush glides smoothly on nails without clumping or streaking for maximum impact and colour density."

RRP: $18.95 each (18ml) – Available from select pharmacies and salons and Orly Online

What I Say:
This Baked collection from Orly features six very bright shades, in a combination of crèmes, glitters and shimmers. The range includes; 
  • Neon Heat – Bright Fuchsia pink in crème
  • Saturated – Dark Purple crème
  • Lush – Bright Lime-green glitter
  • Ablaze- Neon Red shimmer
  • Hot Tropics – Bright Purple shimmer
  • Tropical Pop – Neon Orange Crème
The polishes have slightly different consistency, probably due to the finish, and especially the Lush, seems to be a bit thinner than the others, so I had to apply three coats for a fairly saturated look, but a fourth coat wouldn’t hurt either, while with the other colours, just two coats were sufficient.
Of the six shades in the collection, I prefer Ablaze and Tropical Pop, but that’s probably just because they are so different to any of the colours that I already have!
As always, the Orly polishes are very easy to apply thanks to the wide brush, and I love the easy grip lid that sits comfortably in my hand. I also love that the polishes are free from all the chemicals!
Used with a top coat, I get about 4 to 5 days wear of the nail polish before it starts to wear and chip at the edges, but I do find that reasonable as I do use my hands a lot during the day, both at the computer keyboard, as well as I wash my hands a lot during the day.
All of the colours are so lovely and bright, and perfect for brightening up the nails, especially after a winter of wearing dark clothes!
