Orly Nail Polishes are sold in a variety of places (online, Sally Beauty, CVS, Ulta to name a few) and have a very wide range of colors and finishes. Price-wise I have seen them in the $5+ range online all the way up to $7.99 for core colors. I've tried several shades and finishes from shimmer to pearl to foil to glitter and have had application problems with most. In some cases the consistency of the polish was very thin and in other cases very gloopy and sticky. I've had drying time issues with quite a few where, even with Seche Vite, the polish is dentable several hours later. As to the application process, with most I have tried there has been tip pulling, streaking, bald patches, and cuticle pooling. I think I've tried one so far that has applied well. Also, I have noticed that while the finish is very shiny on day #1, by a couple of days later it has dulled significantly even with SV. The Orly brush seems to be a little on the thin side but the rubberized handle is the best thing about this polish. All in all, for the price of these, I would expect a better application and formula so I doubt that I will be adding too many Orlys to my stash.

This is one of the few nail polishes that doesn't chip on me. It literally last 10+ days until I remove it. The colors I have are not streaky,apply opaque with one coat.I usually purchase at Sallys or Walmart. Love the comfort of the handle & the ease of the brush. I usually use Dior, OPI,Marc Jacobs.I had started using Nars but the quality is not even on the level of some Sinful polishes. Orly has a lot of higher end/price polishes beat.

I own just a few shades (Au Champagne, Rage, Passion Fruit, Shine On Crazy Diamond), but Orly really makes the easiest-to-apply polish due to the combination of brush, bottle top/brush handle, and formula. Au Champagne, especially, is the only white polish I've ever used that isn't a horrible, streaky pain in the butt. Quite cheap for the quality, too.

Some Orly polishes are formulated quite well and at a decent price point - others are steaky. It varies from color/shade to color/shade. In general a good base & top coat (I favor CND Stickey Base Coat and Seche Vite Top Coat) can make any polish last longer - as can a meticulous and clean application process.That said - I have a few Orly's and many more OPI, Essie & Zoya in ye ole hoarde.

Not a fan. I tried Orly polish in a couple colors (one light pink, one dark greenish-blue) and found both of them to be too thin and runny. It takes 3 coats to cover my nails, and it never really looks great. Once I put on a top coat, it looks better, but with a base, 3 coats of polish, then a top coat, it's just not worth the hassle and time needed to apply it, only to have it look mediocre. I won't buy Orly polish again.

So, I've tried multiple Orly polishes, and had the same problem with every single one, so I'm writing this review to remind myself(and others) what to avoid. Orly polishes, simply put, are bad quality polishes. The texture is very runny and they chip within a day or two. I use( and enjoy) a wide range of polishes-both higher and lower end, but haven't experienced such fast chipping with those. It's a shame, too, because they have some really nice colors.

Orly nail polish is like buttah on your nails. The formulas are wonderful, and the colors are true to bottle. The base or top coats do not matter on me, these polishes stay put! I get tip wear after a few days, but that's nothing new (I type a lot at work). I'm sad that CVS doesn't carry Orly anymore, I don't have a Sally's nearby :c

Orly is the only nail polish that stays on my nails. I've tried OPI, Loreal, and some of the real cheap ones too. The only one that stays on is Orly. I do love the way OPI glides on better because of their unique brush, but even OPI won't stay on as long.I haven't tried Orly's nail strengthener. I have horrible, weak nails that tear in the corners and chip when they get long. I love gel and acrylics, but my nails are so thin that the process of getting fake nails is too painful to do every week. Orly is the only way my nails actually stay painted.

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 >:(.
