It’s been a long time since I’ve been so taken with a nail polish. I realize that might sound kind of strange but this polish totally makes me swoon.
For summer 2014 Orly released a collection of 6 polishes called Baked. Orly makes this collection sound super fancy! The collection descriptions is as follows:
Infused with heat-treated pigments, specialty micas and minerals that deliver an ultra-smooth application and maximum color payoff PLUS Vitamins A, E and B5 to help nourish and protect nails.
Pretty fancy, right?
Of course I couldn’t resist Saturated. It’s a gorgeous deep purple jelly creme hybrid with blue undertones. So beautiful!
Orly classifies Saturated as a shimmer but seriously, there is no shimmer. Even when I zoomed in on the pictures I took of this polish in the sun; no shimmer! So I don’t know what’s up with that.
The formula is lovely. I used just two coats in my swatches. But, it does dry to a semi matte finish so a shiny top coat is required.
In the comments of my post on deborah lippmann Maniac we were talking about me doing a top 10 purple polish post. This would be an impossible task for me because that top 10 is ALWAYS changing but right now it’s Orly Saturated. 10 times. ALTHOUGH (see the problem?) Orly makes some amazing purple polishes. Including Bubbly Bombshell, Fowl Play and High on Hope.
