Below: Lemonade is a lighter shade of yellow, the perfect 'butter' yellow. Once the second coat was applied, an opaque look was achieved. Very rare, in my experience with yellows.
Below: My apologies for neglecting to push the Macro button on my camera for this one. Gumdrop also covered nicely in 2 coats. The official description of this is a Pastel Turquoise. I compared it to several polishes I have, and it is extremely close to China Glaze For Audrey. Before I removed this one, I applied For Audrey over one nail, and the difference was very minimal.
Orly's second collection for Spring 2010 is simply called Sweet, and includes 6 pastel creme shades that come with matching lip gloss mini's. As I've mentioned before, I get a little nervous when I use pastel creme shades, because my application skills are lacking in those types of formulas and I usually end up with more coats than I'd like, as well as streaking. Not so much with these though, I'm happy to report! I used 2 coats on all 3 of these, and the formula performed better than most pastel cremes I have used in the past. The drying time was very good, and they all finished with a high gloss shine. This is a very nice Spring collection and the colors make me happy! I don't know that I've ever noticed this before, but Orly's polishes contain 0.6 fl. oz., rather than the standard 0.5 fl. oz.
