Orly ~ Hot Tropics



Orly ~ Hot Tropics
Magenta neon with silver shimmer

Hot Tropics is from the Baked collection from summer 2014 and it’s my second pick from that collection. It’s an absolutely beautiful magenta with shimmer – and I’ve always had a soft spot for shimmers!

The formula is good – no issues to report, and two coats is what I used to achieved desired opacity. The drying time is good, no worries there.

Here’s what two coats and a thin layer of Poshé topcoat looks like:


The shimmers are really pretty!


I added glittah! Just a simple silver/holo glitter from Salon Perfect called Silver Sparkler. It’s a very festive and sparkly glitter – I love it!


Pretty, yes?


Silver Sparkler could easily be one of my favourite to go-toppers :) The only downside about it is that it’s a total effing bitch to get off again, haha! Foil method is recommended, definitely! Or an angle grinder.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Neon with shimmer
Overall impression: I love it!
Buy again: Yes

    1. I think the "regular" collections drown a little bit in all the indies :)
