Orly Cool Romance for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review
Orly Cool Romance is a new spring collection featuring six new shades.
Don’t expect mega color in your face with this collection. Think of the words soft, subtle, understated, feminine and pretty.
The formula with most of these was really good, but thin. Most are fairly sheer, so you will need three coats for complete coverage.
Prelude To A Kiss
Prelude To A Kiss is a pink/peach creme. This polish was one of the thicker ones, yet a little uneven. I did manage to get it decent with just two coats.
You’re Blushing is a sort of hard to describe color. It’s a pinkish grey taupe creme. Very sheer but after three coats really opaque and nice.
Jealous, Much? is a sheer milky mint green. It does build up after three coats but it’s still not completely even all all over. But it is a nice contrast to the super pigmented mint green cremes out there. This is a softer look.
Faint Of Heart
Faint Of Heart is a medium/deep taupe grey. This creamy lacquer has just a hint of darker grey shimmer in it. Actually it’s not really shimmer it looks like speckles. Reminds me of concrete or something and I really like it. Unusual. This was three coats.
Artificial Sweetener is a warm pink with gold shimmer. This one was more pigmented and creamy. I only needed two coats. Pretty spring shade!
Steel Your Heart
Steel Your Heart is a dark steel grey metallic. Kind of an unexpected color for this collection I think, but a nice addition. Not much issue with streaking and opaque in two coats.
Overall: A nice pretty collection, but perhaps nothing that unique to hard-core nail lacquer collectors. My favorites were You’re Blushing and Faint Of Heart.
Is Cool Romance a collection you like or do you prefer bolder colors?
