Orly Elation Generation - swatches and review

The weeks are passing by so quickly that I almost can't keep up... :/ It's already Friday again and that means Holo Friday!! :D
Today I want to show you a fairly new holo glitter polish from Orly. Meet "Elation Generation" from Orly's spring collection "Hope & Freedom Fest" :)
With this post I've now shown you the whole collection! :D A collection summary will be posted soon! ;)


Type of polish: Holographic glitter in a crelly-ish formula.

Colour: A pink, leaning towards coral, packed with holographic glitter.

Collection: Orly Hope & Freedom Fest Collection Spring 2013.

Opacity: Good! This is three coats. Not too bad for a crelly.

Formula: Excellent! A perfect formula which is super easy to apply!

Brush: Excellent! No complaints at all! And the grip cap is amazing as always!

Shine: Very shiny on its own so I have no top coat in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Quite accurate! Perhaps a bit less red looking IRL and more pink leaning towards coral looking instead. It's really sparkling and glittering in the sun!

Grade: 3+/5 :)

I liked this polish much more than I first thought when I saw it in the bottle, but it's really not my type of colour and it doesnt really suit my skintone, hence the 3+ out of 5 :) But if you have darker skin or a nice tan it would look great! The formula is great and it dries really quickly for a glitter polish AND it's a big-3-free polish! 

How do you like Elation Generation?

    1. Ja, den är fin, men den passar inte riktigt på mig ;)

  2. Oh! Jezz, this is gorgeous! Is my favourite colour of the whole collection! Plus, in the pictures it looks like it suits you just great, why do you think it doesn't?
    baci! xx

    1. Ciao cara! I'm so glad you like it Nati! :D It's not my favourite from this collection but it's a pretty shade! If you'd see it on me full hand I think you'd agree with me that it doesn't suit me ;) That's why I didn't include a full hand picture ;) lol! Bacioni! xx

  3. Åh sommrig å fin :) jag hade nog gilla den bättre utan all glitter. xoxo

    1. Va?!?! Du som är en sån sucker för glitter :) Men den hade nog faktiskt varit fin utan glitter :D Men då hade den å andra sidan inte kvalat in på Holofredag :P xoxo

    2. Jag har en " glitterfri" period B-) Nä, men d måste va rätt sort glitter. Sånt som finns i "Indie lacken" i limited edition. Because I'm Worth it :P

  4. Jag tycker den här är fin. Jag har inte hunnit testa mitt än, men ska väl försöka hinna det någon gång nästan vecka.

    1. Den ÄR fin, den passar bara inte riktigt till min hudton ;) Testa din till nästa holofredag! :D

  5. Hi meine Süsse, now look at me, I am super late with my comment - aaaargh!!! I loved all the Orly polishes you showed us and you kept my favorite for last!!! (I do seem to have a knack for corals lately, eh?). I also liked the grey one, these two are my favorites. I hope you have some great plans for your weekend love - Küsschen xxx
