Orly BAKED Collection: Swatches and Nail Art


Transform your winter blues with ORLY’s bold NEW collection – Baked. Inspired by the hot days and balmy nights of seasons gone by, Baked will have you embracing exotic, neon hues to warm your
fingertips up this winter.

A brand new and innovative formula the Baked colour collection has been infused with baked
pigments, specialty micas, vitamins and minerals. The pigment in each Baked shade is milled to a
micro fine particle size and then heat treated at high temperatures to ensure pigment easily disperses
into the base.  Allowing for an ultra-smooth application, maximum colour payoff and superior shine, each polish also contains antioxidant vitamins A and E to help promote healthy nails, while pro-vitamin B5 protects the structure of the natural nail.

What’s more each shade in the Baked Collection is formulated without DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde and Formaldehyde Resin and are equipped with ORLY’s world famous Gripper Cap for easier application.

Collection features:
Tropical Pop: Neon Orange
Ablaze: Bright Orange w/Gold Shimmer
Lush: Lime Green Jelly w/ Holo Bar Glitter
Neon Heat: Fuchsia Crème
Hot Tropics: Bright Purple Shimmer
Saturated: Violet Crème

Onto the swatches!

Tropical Pop, 3 coats.  I would like to point out that no filters are used in these photos, they really are totally neon in real life.

Ablaze, 2 coats.  This has a gorgeous shimmer in it.  I loved this color.

Lush, 3 coats.  OK, this one is rather......nasty. I didn't like it at all.  It does look much nicer over black as the photos below will show.

Hot Tropics, 2 coats.  This color is my favourite of the bunch.  It's the perfect Tropical shade of Purple and has a beautiful shimmer.

Neon Heat, 2 coats.  This color is explosive and applied like butter.  Gorgeous.

Unfortunately I wasn't sent Saturated, which I will have to remedy as I loved the rest of the collection.... bar Lush!  Maybe if Lush was in a crème base with the glitter it may have worked but it was just too sheer for my liking. 

I did play around with some nail art and decided on a graffiti / comic theme.

Lush looks fab over a black base, and it shows the bar glitter much more clearly.  I used Lush Lacquer Pink Panther for the glitter.
Orly's BAKED Collection will be available in Australia from July 2014 with a RRP of $18.95.  You can order direct from Orly or check their stockist link for an outlet near you.

  2. What fabulously warm, cheerful hues!!! I don't wear a lot of neons, but come summer, I bust them out on my nails (I have a long standing tradition of painting my nails neon pink for my birthday, which I've been doing since I was kid) and would happily rock any of these fun shades (especially Heat and Ablaze).
