Orly ”Cake Pop” Nail Polish – Swatches and Review

Hi readers!

Today I’m showing you a nail polish that I received in my very first FabFitFun (Sprin 2015); this is Orly “Cake Pop”. This is also the base colour I used for my Easter Eggs Nail Art.

The brush is round, but it feels on the small side like the Essie brushes. The cap is nice though, it’s rubbery so you get a good grip on it.

Cake Pop is described as a white pink crème. Yup, that’s what it is. Is such a light pink that you’d almost think it was white, but it’s not.

The formula was very thin and liquidy, and quite patchy too. I needed three coats for full opacity. It looked uneven after the three coats, but a layer of topcoat fixed that. These pictures are all three coats plus topcoat.

I have to say though that my nails went a full week without a single chip – that rarely happens to me!

This was my first time trying a nail polish from Orly and I have to say that I was not impressed. That being said, white and light crème polishes usually have this kind of formula though, so I’m not judging the entire brand based on this one polish. I need to try more.

What colours have you tried from Orly? What do you recommend?
