No. Just a horrid, gloopy mess. I will not be re buying this. You would think that for such a price the formula would not be so awful but it is. I have cheaper nail polishes that dont get all gloopy and thick after a few weeks. A waste. Takes forever to dry and messes up easily. God awful crap >:(.
Not my favorite but certainly an outstanding brand of np. My small orly haul or collection for lack of better word consists of
O cabana boy
Melt your Popsicle
Matte top coat
They've got pros
Nice big bottle more than CG polishes
Rubberized grip cap for easy handling and opening
Nice glitters and dupes
Too many dupes
One of the worst nail polishes I have ever used and I have used the 99cent bottles. I bought two bottles (light green and light pink) for the first time with both colors coming out a mess. Both spread poorly leaving patches of inconsistent coverage. After three coats it still didn't cover!
I do not know why some people tend to complain that they have problems putting this nail polish on and that they have a bad time letting the nail polish dry. This is the best type of nail polish that i have ever used. It dries instantly faster than any other i have ever had. In my opinion i think the ones that are having trouble with the drying is that you guys are not waiting long enough or are impatient for that matter and go ahead and put so much on that it does not dry other than that . this is the best nail polish i have ever used.
By far my favorite polish brand. I love the rubberized grippy top - it really helps me do my right hand. I never have application issues, the formula lasts and lasts on me. I also love that it's a thicker formula and with a good topcoat gives some stability to my nails. Pretty cheap at Sally Beauty with a decent selection of colors.
Orly is probably my favorite brand in terms of formula (perfect consistency) the long, thin brush, and the rubber cap that makes handling the brush so much easier!
I have quite a bit of trouble applying Orly polishes. The formula is rather thick and difficult to spread. I also have a big problem with the drying time. It's really, really irritating to be honest and I have also had the problem of dents or damage to the polish many, many hours later beause the stuff takes way to long to dry.
It is beyond frustrating to spend so much time on my nails only to have it ruined many hours later, when most other polishes would have dried and been fine.
Unfortunately I have quite a few of their polishes before I really identified the problems.
Unless there is a color that really knocks my socks off, I really don't think I'll be buying any more Orly.
I am a nail polish addict. I have currently about 450 bottles of nail polish and of those approx 50-60 are Orlys. I love Orly. I think it applies very well, never bubbles... ever. The brush is just the right size and I adore the rubber handle, it is shaped well and never slips from your hand while polishing. I love nail art and stamping and there are quite a few Orly polishes that are fantastic for stamping. They are usually quite opaque so I don't have to put 3 layers which always drives me nuts on polishes that require so many layers to get a good finish.
Also, the prices are great. I can usually find some awesome deals online or at Sally's and today I got 10 polishes at Wholesale Beauty Club for BOGO so they came out to be $3.38 a piece which is a steal because they have 20% more polish than OPI and China Glaze and that is quite a few extra manicures when you don't have to apply to many layers to look fabulous.
So, overall I rate this a 5 star because of all the pluses. I truly can't come up with any negatives.
I have this color call buttercup. Application can be tricky for people who are not good at applying nail polish. However, It doesn't streak, no bubbles and has very smooth finishes. I'm impressed. Not sure if it is applicable to all the other colors. No chipping too after a night of heavy duty house chords.
I'm a recent convert to Orly polishes. In the past I ignored them, partly b/c I think the bottle looks clunky (I know... never judge a polish by its bottle), plus they don't usually get a nice display in the stores like OPI or Essie does, and OPI always does a better advertising job. I've changed my mind -- they're just as good as OPI or Essie or any high end polish and have a range of interesting shades seasonally. A couple of colors that I absolutely love are Sea Gurl ("basic" warmer toned gunmetal gray that applies like a dream, and as classy looking as any Chanel metallic polish. Love!); Miss Conduct (gorgeous shimmery raspberry pink); many from the foil FX collection; just about any of the blues (ex lunar eclipse, stone cold), and the list goes on. Do give this line a try if there's a shade that appeals to you. Same price as OPI $8 or $8.50 but you can get for a few dollars less at a chain beauty supply store like Sally's.
Rating more like 4.5 (I can't see ever giving an entire line of product a 5, so this rating is as good as it gets for me)
