Orly Pin-Up: Bubbly Bombshell & Here Comes Trouble

Orly's Pin-Up Collection contains 4 shades, 2 bright cremes (pink and coral) and 2 glitters. Today I have a look at the glitters for you, and if you like glitters, you're going to love these! Both of these covered very well using 2 coats, and the finish is relatively smooth. The foil glitter within these shades is a mix of micro glitter and hex glitter in matching colors.

Bubbly Bombshell is a bright violet shade whose glitter is in a clear base. I expected that I'd have to apply about four coats to get acceptable coverage, but surprisingly, that was not the case.


Here Comes Trouble, a lighter shade of Kelly green, has a green tinted base. I took these photos outside under cloudy skies, so I can only imagine their sparkle factor on a sunny day!



Both of these shades had excellent coverage for glitter polishes, especially Bubbly Bombshell. They have so much glitter in them, that after the first coat is in place, it gives the second coat a lot of texture to grip on to. That's my scientific explanation! There's plenty of sparkle to be found in these, that's for sure.

  13. I just bought Bubbly Bombshell. Its GORGEOUS!! But there is no base color, just clear with glitter... took me about 5 thick/thin coats... but worth it.
