Spring 09: Orly Prepster Collection Swatches

Orly PrepsterThe Prepster collection from Orly is the second edition to the Spring 09' round up.  In the Carnivale Collection, we saw bright pops of orange, purple and pink. This collection is the soft side of spring that offers six nex shades ranging from pastel pink, blue and nudes.

It's time to get your tennis rackets and polo sticks out while you get ready for Orly's Prepster spring collection.  A mixture of shades you'll see at the country club or on the tennis courts with names like Cashmere Cardigan, Polo Princess and Prim & Proper.

Some must haves: Cashmere Cardigan, Polo Princess and Country Club Khaki.

Check out all the swatches below. 

Orly Cashmere Cardigan Nail Polish

Orly Prepster Spring Collection

Cashmere Cardigan is a gorgeous periwinkle blue creme that applied perfectly in two coats. This color just pops, loves it! 

Orly Tennis Anyone nail polish swatch

Tennis Anyone is a off white sheer creme that applied with three coats.  In all honestly, this could have used a fourth coat. 

Orly Prim and Proper nail polish

Prim & Proper is a light metallic purple with pink undertones.  A much lighter and version of Deborah Lippmann's, Purple Rain.

If you don't mind the hassle of metallics, you'll like this one.  The application is much like any metallic really, including Purple Rain.

Orly Country Club Khaki Nail Polish

Orly Prepster Spring 09 Collection

Country Club Khaki is a fantastic color all around.  Described as a khaki nude creme perfect for any season.  A great alternative to Rescue Beauty Lounge's, Grunge. 

Orly Polo Princess nail polish

Polo Princess is a pastel pink creme that applied a tad streaky, but not terribly.  I needed three coats to even everything out.

Orly OMG nail polish swatch

OMG is a bright hot pink coral creme that applied fairly sheer.  I needed three coats to achieve bottle color.

The Prepster collection is now available at Head2Toe and retails for $3.50/ea.

I've read your blog off and on. I'm now going to add it to my favorites. I already bought the whole Orly collection. It's nice to see it swatched. I haven't used it yet. I also have tons of polish. I read about you in the article on All Lacquered up. Fabulous hair! I love curls. Mine is only wavy. Thanks for the swatches.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
