I'll continue on the Orly path and today I give you High on Hope from their new spring collection!
GOOD TO KNOW ABOUT HIGH ON HOPE:
Type of polish: Shimmer with duochrome effect.
Colour: A dusky medium blue packed with a duochrome shimmer that shifts from orange to pink. I can also see some sparse purple shimmer.
Collection: Orly Hope & Freedom Fest Spring 2013.
Opacity: Very good! This is two coats.
Formula: Very good! A nice formula which is easy to apply if you apply it with thin coats. Perhaps a tiny bit thin but not runny.
Brush: Good. A bit thinner than the "normal" Orly brush, but the grip cap is amazing to work with!
Shine: Very shiny on its own but I have one coat of Seche Vite in these pictures.
Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Quite accurate! Depending on the lighting the shimmer shifts from pink to orange (if you enlarge the pictures you can see a hint of the duochrome effect) and this also effects the shade of blue which can look both darkblue, blurple or dusky navy blue. A fun effect but oooh so hard to capture! ;)
Grade: 4/5 :)
I think I would have liked this polish better without the duochrome shimmer... To me this is a little bit too much going on at the same time... But it's a wonderful blue polish and perhaps I just need to get used to this effect... ;)
High on Hope is a big 3-free polish and in Sweden you can get it at Åhléns, nelly.com and eleven.se.
How do you like High on Hope?
Did you have a good or Blue Monday today? ;)
