Orly Melt Your Popsicle is another great color choice for summer and is one of the shades included in the Orly Feel the Vibe Mani Minis Summer 2012 Collection (nail swatches, photos & info). I’m saying this color is part of the Mani Minis collection because I received it in a 5.3 ml/ .18 fl oz bottle which retails for 20.00 Lei unlike the normal size of 18 ml/ 0.6 fl oz for $7.50 / 45.00 Lei which is part of Orly Feel the Vibe Summer 2012 Nail Polish Collection (info, swatches & promo photos).
Melt Your Popsicle is a bright orange coraly neon quite transparent in one coat and semi-transparent in 2 coats. The texture is very light and fluid making the polish to dry almost instantly on your nails. The only problem I had with the application was a few lines noticeable after the first coat but the second coat managed to even the color and leave a semi-matte finish. The brush it’s quite small (considering it’s a mini size nail polish) so I had to dip it in a few times to get a good coverage.
The fact that it comes in a mini size bottle has its advantages so you can take the entire collection with you in vacation because it won’t take up too much space or you can wear your favorite shade in the bag if you wanna do a quick retouch.
Before applying the two coats of Melt Your Popsicle I used Orly Bonder Rubberized Lacquer Gripping Base Coat but without applying any top coat in the end. I wanted to have this color without the shiny finish and protection of the top coat.
The entire Orly Feel the Vibe Mani Minis Summer 2012 Collection was sent by Orly Romania for testing and review-ing purposes.

Orly Melt Your Popsicle Nail Polish after 4 days wear
Considering I haven’t worn this color under a top coat and it’s a neon polish and they usually tend to last 2-3 days I would say the result is pretty impressive. You can see minor tip wear on some of the nails but the color is still vibrant. It tends to mattify a little because of soap, lotions and cream but it does still look great.

I hope this review was fun and helpful for you girls. What do you think of this color? Do you like wearing bright neon shades?
