Orly Pin Up Collection Swatches!

Good Morning guys! Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! While I was out shopping on Saturday I came across the Orly Pin Up Collection, for some reason the beauty supply had it all mixed in with their display of core polishes. I only noticed it because Here Comes Trouble caught my eye and I recognized the name, Michelle and I literally searched the entire display for the other 3...and found them! 

First up is Coquette Cutie, a bright semi neon pink it leans a little to the coral side. Love the color, however the formula on this was no bueno. Kind of like applying pink glue. Hopefully I just got a bad bottle or something, I did add some thinner and it helped but it still isn't great. The coverage though since it was thick and yucky was really good, nice and opaque in 2 coats! It dried just a tad bit matte, so a top coat is probably a good thing, I used one for the photo below.




Bubbly Bombshell is a fuschia purple glitter bomb! It's gorgeous! Bubbly Bombshell is full of both square glitter and small hex glitter in a clear base! It does get opaque which I love! The formula was actually really good for a glitter this dense, I used 3 coats for full opacity!



Va Va Voom this one is a hot hot hot neon pink, looks straight out of China Glaze's Poolside Collection from last year. I will be doing a comparison between this and one of the pinks from that collection soon! I love this color, it's not unique by any means but I like everything neon, I don't really care if it's unique :) The formula was great, I only needed 2 coats for full opacity! This dried to a satin matte finish, I used a top cot for the photos below.


Shade

Last up is Here Comes Trouble which is much like Bubbly Bombshell except green glitter. This one was also in a weird yellow green base instead of clear like the other. Great formula again for such a dense glitter, I used 3 coats for the photo below!



Overall, I like this collection. The glitters are fantastic, if you like glitters they are something I would definitely pick up. Va Va Voom is also great if you don't have anything like it or like me, love neon and want it all. I would probably pass on Coquette Cutie :)

It looks like you can by these on http://victoriasnailsupply.com/ already but I think you might have to email them to do so? I have no idea. I haven't seen these in regular stores like Ulta or Sally Beauty yet, but I'm guessing they will be there soon!

Edited to add: Looks like some of you are finding these at Ulta already, mine just sucks I guess! haha

  20. Just FYI, for anyone looking for these - I found them today at Ulta. However, the display they had was almost empty, They maybe had one of each color left. Hopefully they get more in soon so people can take advantage of the Buy Two, Get One Free deal! Great swatches! I'll be getting both the coral and pink colors! I like the glitters, but don't see myself wearing them on my hands.

  21. Omg, I love VaVa Voom. My stash is so pitifully devoid of neons, but I'm gonna rectify that situation this summer.
    Can't wait for your comparison!

  27. I love Orly, their formula is pretty much perfect and I love their colors, they all look amazing on me. I can't wait to get my hands on Here Comes Trouble & Bubbly Bombshell and the neon pink is so appealing. I don't have any neon from Orly.. Yup, I'm getting one.
