Lovers of yellow shade I’m happy to share with you my review for Orly Melodious Utopia nail lacquer, a beautiful funny and glitzy color which part of Orly Spring 2013 Hope & Freedom Fest Collection (swatches, info & photos). I received the polish from Orly Romania a couple of weeks ago together with another three lovely shades from Orly Mani Minis Spring 2013 Hope & Freedom Fest (swatches & photos).
Now @orlybeauty.com, @orlyromania.ro, @rowe.ro, keiko.ro and at Keiko Slim Spa Salons in Bucharest and Orly nail salons.
Orly Melodious Utopia nail lacquer (5.3 ml/ 0.18 fl oz – 20.00 Lei) is a soft yellow creme with fine gold and copper glitter. It has a very light consistency, almost watery like which makes the polish look almost transparent with just a hint of yellow in one coat. The second coat of Melodious Utopia delivers a sheer color and a third coat will bring this color closer to the one in the bottle. I can’t say that after three coats the color was fully opaque but the fine glitter particles capture the light and sun and gives this color a beautiful effect. The application went well with just a little bit of pooling on the edges when I started to apply the third coat. I also used Orly Rubberized Lacquer Gripping Base Coat at the beginning and one coat of Orly 3-in-1 Top Coat only on five of my nails for a super glossy effect and long-lasting color.
Even though yellow is not my color I did wear Orly Melodious Utopia nail polish for 7 days before removing it. It started chipping after 4 days on the nails were I didn’t apply top coat and after a day and a half I had the same result on the nails where I applied top coat. The color was still looking vibrant but a little bit more mattyfied on the nails without top coat due to soap, lotions and creams. I guess 3 coats will make most nail lacquers chip after a few days but if you are comfortable with a sheer color you can stop after the second coat of Melodious Utopia.
