NOTD: Orly Gumdrop – Sweet Collection
Some time ago Orly released a whole bunch of their polishes in super cute mini polish versions. The minis retail for $7.95AUD and the full size bottle are $18.95AUD. More info on the Orly Australia site.
The whole blue/green polish phase was initially started with China Glaze’s For Audrey, a perfect Tiffany blue shade. Ever since For Audrey came onto the scene almost every polish brand has brought out it’s own variation, some veer more towards mint green and others are more on the blue side. Gumdrop, which was released with the Orly Sweet collection, is definitely more in the blue category. The shade is gorgeous and surprisingly flattering.
In keeping with the theme of the collection, Gumdrop has a very candy-like feel about it, much like you would expect to find in a lolly store. The polish is wonderfully pigmented and easy to apply, as most Orly polishes are.
Gumdrop is a great shade for summer (or during winter if you feel like a break from all those vampy, dark shades.) It’s brighter than it first appears and looks best with an ultra glossy top-coat, such as my personal HG Seche Vite.
