Orly Spring 2013 Hope and Freedom Collection Swatches and NOTD

Today I have few polishes from Orly's Spring 2013  Hope and Freedom Collection to share with you. This collection has 6 polishes, mixture of cremes, glitters and shimmers. I have here Coachella Dweller, High on Hope and Melodious Utopia.

All pictures are taken in lightbox.

Coachella Dweller is a spring green creme shade. Its not pastel but its pale and very springy. It took 3 thin coats for full coverage. First coat is little streaky and even out with a second coat but still need a third coat to bring out that shade perfectly. Its very little darker in-person then these picture. I applied 3 thin coats for  following pics with a coat of seche.

Melodious Utopia is a stunner yellow shimmer shade. Honestly when i saw this in bottle i did not quite like it. I was like ok another yellow and as with all the yellow shades i thought it would be streaky too but surprisingly this is my first yellow which is very very less streaky. This shade has a orange shimmer. It do need 3 thin coats thats what i applied for following pics and a coat of seche. 

As you can notice, shimmer is pretty visible here.

High on Hope is again a shimmer polish in navy blue shade. This shade is pretty opaque than the last two and need just 2 coats. It has a purple shimmer to it and has a hint of multichrome effect. You can easily notice it in bottle and on nails. I used 2 coats for photos and a coat of seche vite. 

I did a quick tape manicue using  Melodious Utopia and High on Hope.

Overall, i like Melodious Utopia and High on Hope more than Coachella Dweller, because later is sheer than the other two and i really dont like putting three coats and the wait in between. 

What will be your picks from the collection.
