My Picks from the Orly Baked Collection

Hello! I am sorry for my absence the last few days, my husband and I just moved, and that has been challenging to say the least. I am glad that most of our stuff is moved in now and we just have to clean up our old place. I am actually sitting on the floor in our (mostly) empty apartment writing this. My nails have suffered from  the move, but luckily I have some photos stored up to share for just such an occasion! I don't know why I haven't shared these yet, but these are my four favorite picks from the Orly Baked Collection that released this summer. I loved this collection and used these in nail art several times (Neon Week, Richter Scale, Violet Stones). Today I have swatches and reviews of these colors for you!


Saturated is a gorgeous royal purple jelly. It is so rich and well, saturated in color that I can't help but adore it! I only needed two coats here. In the first photo you can see how it dries to a semi-matte finish, but I think it looks best glossy. It also has a really great formula and has a very easy application.






Tropical Pop really does pop! It is a yellow-orange that looks so unique! I don't have anything like it in my collection and I am really glad I have this one. It is perfect in two coats and has the same jelly quality as Saturated. It is so lovely. The application is flawless.





Hot Tropics is a neon fuchsia with shimmer! It is so gorgeous! I only needed two coats again and the application was flawless. I love how the shimmer shows so well on the nail.





Ablaze is a very vibrant orange color. It is definitely a neon with shimmer and it is gorgeous! It was difficult to get color accurate photos here, but this is as close as I could manage. In person it looks a little more tangerine than orange. Same great formula and only two coats needed for this neon beauty.





I really love this collection! That is why when I did a giveaway, I gave the whole collection. It is fantastic. The formulas are on point, the colors are perfect for summer and the application on all of them is perfect! I hope you like this and are still able to find some of these beauties in stores. If not, I'm sorry for sharing this so late, but I had to tell the world!

    such gorgeous swatches! These look fantastic!

  3. I love that purple! Also...moving sucks. I had to make a big-ish move in July and was so glad I planned ahead for posts! Not only were my nails a wreck but I was in no mood to paint my nails and write new posts! Good luck with finishing up the move!

  4. I love this collection, although I only got one of them. Orly is so underrated :)

  5. Hot Tropics is beautiful on you, I didn't get any from this collection. I'm sending "grow fast" vibes to you, they worked with Kellie Gonzo! :P

  6. I really like Tropical Pop! Plus I like any good jelly anyway haha :)

  7. All four of these are gorgeous! I especially love the pink. And moving is always rough, glad you're nearly finished! :)

  8. I hope the rest of your move goes smoothly. Love your swatches. I picked up a mini set of this collection this summer but never got around to using them. But I might bust them out during a cold spell this winter to help with warm thoughts. lol Ablaze and Hot Tropics are my favorites.

  9. Ohhh, I love how bright these are! Your swatches look great too! Good luck on finishing up your move!

  10. These are gorgeous! Hope you love the new place and that you're able to baby your hands to get them back in shape soon!

  11. That shimmer in the last two polishes is just gorgeous!

  12. Saturated is my favorite, and yes I like it better with top coat!

  13. I love this collection! I bought Tropical Pop because I didn't own anything like it - it's gorgeous over white too! Great swatches :)

  14. I never did find Saturated but I love it so much! beautiful!
