Orly OLE Review
Orly released their Viva Summer collection here in Australia recently and their PR team sent me a bottle of OLE for review. Ole was on my wish list along with La Playa and you all read my rave on Bailamos last month here: konadlicious.blogspot.com/2010/10/orly-bailamos.html
Ole is described as a vibrant orange cream, but really is a really lovely coral color and really suits my skintone. Fluro orange's do nothing for me so I am happy to get a brighter orange that looks nice.
Perfect in only 2 coats and I stamped with Konad Yellow and White from various Bundle Monster and Konad plates. 1 coat of Seche QD. I forgot to get a photo of it by itself, that is not like me so I do apologise! All pics taken in full sunlight.
Orly also sent me a bottle of their Top to Bottom, which is a top and bottom coat all in one. This is a watery thin formula and proved to be watery thin once dried, as it peeled off within hours on several manicures I tried it on. As a base coat, my Mum was a test subject and her Clarie's Mood polish was flaking off in chunks by the next day. Whether this is a reflection of the Top 2 Bottom or the Claire's polish....I don't know.
So while the Top 2 Bottom didn't make my cut, Ole is gorgeous and I'm rapt it's in my collection. The Viva Summer collection can be found here for Australian buyers; www.orlybeauty.com.au and their range is available for a 10% discount once you sign up to their mailing list.
BTW, they have a discontinued section and I finally found Fantasea! Yahoo!
Which Viva did you get?
