It's Tiki Time: Orly Summer 09 Tiki Collection
With summer almost being here, it's time to get out the tiki torches and party it down with Orly's new Summer Tiki Collection.
Introducing four new bright shades sure to get you noticed this summer. When I say bright, it's not your typical neon bright. Just enough to get some worthy attention.
Application. Overall, some of the formula's fall on the semi sheer side, but nothing that three coats can't fix. I was able to get by with two coats on most, with the exception of Mint Mojito, which is definitley worth the three coat application.
My Favorites: Mint Mojito and Calypso Blue. Check out the swatches.
Mint Mojito, is a little piece of mint great heaven sure to please your sweet tooth. A must have for any green lover.
Check out a comparison picture below.
As you can see, Mint Mojito is certainly special amoung the others.
Calyspo Blue is pretty special indeed. Nothing like Essie's Mesmerize or Sephora's Blue Grotto. A medium to light blue that definitley stands out amoung the rest. Although, this one could have used an additional coat. Loves it!
Sol Cabanna, is a orange creme that's more toned down.
Have a wonderful day!

Love those polishes. They all look adorable on you. My favorite is Mint Mojito. These are all on my "wants" list.

Hi Merty, MAC's Peppermint Patti is more of a brighter pastel compared to Mint Mojito. Both are very different. :) Hi Lucy, Thanks so much! Mint Mojito is def a keeper :) Hi Liz, Great pick! Essie's Mesmerize is close, but not exactly identical. I really don't have anything right on :) It's such a great blue!

I love all of them...especially Mint Mojito. I'm wondering though if possible if you could do a side by side comparison between mint mojito and mac's peppermint patti. If not, which color personally do you think is better (even thought they are different).Thanks!

Is this collection limited edition?
