Orly Melodious Utopia

Orly Melodious Utopia came out with their spring Hope and Freedom Fest Collection.

It was a shade I initially passed on when I ordered the others online. Why? I have no idea but I recently bought it at Ulta and even though it was a real PITA to work with I still love it.

Melodious Utopia is a pale lemon yellow with tangerine/pink shimmer.

I have read some reviews where people said they used two coats but you could do three. Um I don’t know if my bottle is bad or what but I needed FOUR coats and it’s still patchy where my ridges are. Is this a ridge thing or a polish thing? I really don’t know but just two coats would not have cut the mustard for me!

Even with four thin coats, which is one beyond what I do 99.9% of the time, I still like this shade. It’s pretty unique with that shimmer and I love a cool-toned yellow.

What do you think about this shade? Will you go the extra mile (or coat) for a shade you really love or move on?
