Artificial Sweetener is a light pink with a subtle silvery shimmer. I almost didn't get this one, it didn't look like much in the bottle but once it was on the nail it's beautiful! Reminds me a bit of OPI's Pedal Faster Suzi but it's much softer looking and with a lot less obvious shimmer. The formula was nice, a little thick but easy to apply. I used 2 coats for the photos below.
For anyone wondering, this was bought solely for the name since I didn't love it in the bottle. No Doubt is pretty much my favorite thing since sliced bread and my favorite song of theirs is called Artificial Sweetener. I have music notes going around my wrist that are a line from that song!
Faint of Heart is a light brown/grey with a really interesting finish. This shade is what I like to call "donkey grey", sometimes it looks brown, sometimes grey. I didn't notice in the bottle but the finish on this is very different and unusual. It's not flat creme but it's not a shimmer. I don't even know how to describe it...reminds me a bit of Misa Grey Matters but it isn't as noticeable as it was with that polish. To see what the heck I'm talking about please look at the third photo below lol! The formula on this one was also a little thick but easy to apply...I used 2 coats!
Jealous, Much? is a light minty green. Original? Nope but I still love it! The formula was just okay, it was on the streaky side but I kind of expected that. I used 3 coats to even everything out!
Prelude To A Kiss is a peachy creme! Another beautiful peach for spring...I am a fan! The formula was just okay...I'm calling it a careful 2 coater. It was a little bit streaky but I did a thick-ish second coat and all was well!
Since it was requested here is Prelude To A Kiss vs Essie A Crewed Interest. I used 2 coats for the Orly and 3 for the Essie. Color wise almost spot on here, the Essie is a touch darker but I don't think regular folks would even notice the difference. Formula wise the Orly is better...it's also cheaper and the bottle is bigger...I think it's the winner all around!
Steel Your Heart is a metallic steel grey. meh...I'm sorry, I just don't like shades like this. I try really hard to love them (as you can tell since I buy them over and over) but I just can't do it. The brush strokes drive me crazy. It also feels SO out of place in this collection...like they needed a 6th polish and just threw this in because it was laying around somewhere. Formula wise it was on the thick side but it was easy to apply, I used 2 coats.
You're Blushing is a light purple taupe. I feel like I've got this polish a billion times over but I love it every time. Purplish taupe polishes like this are so flattering and easy to wear. The formula on this was seriously flawless, almost a 1 coater!
Overall I do like this collection, a lot of the shades feel done but they are ones that I always like. My favorites are Artificial Sweetener, Faint of Heart and Prelude To A Kiss.
Availability wise I have no idea when these will be in stores like Ulta or Sally Beauty...I would guess sometime in February but I don't know an exact date! I tried to ask at the Orly booth at ISSE but they were so crazy over there at the time that she couldn't answer me :(
