Orly Mash Up for Summer 2013 is literally just that. A mash up of colors and finishes. There isn’t anything necessarily “cohesive” about this collection except it’s all very different. And I like it!
Cremes with iridescent shimmer, deep jewel-toned chrome, holographic glitter, screaming neon. This collection has it all!
Pretty-Ugly is a pale blue with iridescent purple shimmer. There is nothing ugly about this one, except maybe the streaks I had to deal with. The formula is a little on the thick, yet patchy side. But the color is so damn pretty. It looks a billion times better in real life. I used three thin coats here.
Harmonious Mess is a slightly greyed out lavender creme. This had a nice thick formula, not a streak or issue in sight. Not the most unique shade ever, but still nice. This was two coats.
Choreographed Chaos is a bubblegum pink with iridescent purple and blue shimmer. This pink is really quite bright and will dry matte without a top coat. It is a little bit streaky but maybe not quite as much as Pretty-Ugly. Either way it’s a pretty shade and one of my favs. This was three thin coats.
Mayhem Mentality is a SCREAMING neon orange creme. I mean this sucker is so bright it’s hard to look at. Great formula though, easy as pie to apply and just two coats. Love it.
Sparkling Garbage has a pale murky green base and tons of holographic glitter. I really wanted this to cover better than it but, but alas, after three coats there is visible nail showing through. It would make a nice layering shade though. It’s super holographic!
Beautiful Disaster is a bright, rich magenta chrome shimmer. Wow. This is one I expected to like the least just from the bottle, but it would up being one of my favorites once it was on. It’s such a rich glowy shade. Work slowly with applying because it tends to want to be brush-stroke-y a bit. This is just two coats and it covered great.
Overall: I like that this collection isn’t predictable at all. It’s not filled with only neons, or only bright cremes. There is a shade and finish for everyone. My favorites are Pretty-Ugly, Choreographed Chaos, Mayhem Mentality and Beautiful Disaster.
Availability: This month.
