Orly- Coquette Cutie [Swatch]

Welcome to the beginning of Valentine's Day Pinks & Reds Week!  There will be a new pink or red polish swatch every day starting today, and continuing through Saturday.

To kick things off, here is Orly- Coquette Cutie:

Coquette Cutie is a bright, coral-leaning, pink creme. It was released in Summer 2011 as part of the Pin Up collection.

Artificial light, two coats:

It seems to dry slightly darker than bottle color, but not by much.

Mixed artificial & natural daylight:

I'm not a pink person, but I really love this one.  It might be my favorite pink creme I own.  I do love corals, so the fact that this leans a little coral does help!

Window-filtered daylight:

Outside, shade:

Formula: Thick, and first coat is streaky, but self-levels reasonably well.  Second coat evens everything out, and is pretty much opaque with just the barest hint of VNL.  It's got a decent formula for a color like this- I really had no problems!


  1. makes me want to revisit that polish... :)

    1. It's a good one! It's always fun to fall in love all over again with a polish you haven't worn in a while. :)
