Orly Ingenue

Orly’s holiday 2011 Holiday Soiree collection didn’t really wow me. I saw it in stores countless times and passed each time. For once, I wish I had stayed strong and continued to pass! But of course, I was in Sally’s recently picking up a new bottle of Rush 60 Second High Speed Top Coat and spotted Ingenue on clearance.

Ingenue is a pink leaning purple metallic full of gold shimmer. The formula is a bit thin, but not runny. I needed four coats to get an opaque color.

Don’t get me wrong, this is a gorgeous color. It’s just so wrong for my skintone. Under artificial light, this polish looks copper on me. Not very flattering.  But on warmer skintones, I think this polish would look fabulous.

Ingenue is  not unique. OPI Really Pretty Pink and Zoya Faye are both almost dead on dupes.

  1. Interesting! I bought a bottle of Ingenue last week and put it on tonight, only needed 2 coats and the formula was really good. I wonder if they changed the formula? My friend bought a bottle of Orly Snow Cone and it was super thick and awful, but the reviews of it I’ve found online are all positive and say the formula is good. How odd.

What do you think?
