I completely agree with the review by "shrieking_madwoman". I purchased is to use in a french manicure, but it is far too dark pinky-red for my fair skin. I could see this polish working really well on someone with olive skin or darker... Just not on fair skin (for a classic french manicure). The formula was sort of jelly-ish, but not altogether unpleasant. I do like the Orly bottle as well.
I love this color. Imma minimalist and this foots the bill perfectly. Clear but not clear - the perfect my nails but better look. Not sure where the "jelly like" description came from, I am not seeing that consistency at all, to me it goes on just like regular polish and one coat works great for me. I think this looks great on short nails AND even toes! Love love love.
Beautiful, sheer coral jelly! It looks nothing like the pictures online. It's very girly and not some bright red.
The only complaint is that the formula can be a little tricky to work with. Since it's more like a jelly consistency and not watery like regular clear polish it could get a bit tacky too fast.. giving you clumps/streaks. I find that it's avoidable when I load up the brush well and do it in 2-3 strokes. Easier to clean a little excess than to have a clumpy nail!
this is the gorgeous jelly pink color i've been searching for!! i'm on my second bottle...this stuff is my new hg nail color. Perfect by itself or for french mani's. LOVE it!!!
Nice color for those fast and easy manicures. Its very classically beautiful. Very elegant and looks better on longer nails IMO.
I purchased this a long time ago at a beauty supply store and ever since, Ive been HOOKED. This is my go to color when I want something closed to clear but with a touch of color. Its a very sheer rosy red color with a slight shimmer in it and it can be layered for a stronger effect. It goes PERFECT as a top coat for French manicures. It also last pretty long. I also like the fact that once it starts chipping, its not that noticeable.
From this moment forward, i claim this my color. jk. I will always be wearing it. It goes great with everything. I just put on 3 coats on my right hand and it looks kinda like jelly. You gotta see the color and try it to understand. The first coat is clear but kind of opaque. So i just added on more coats and it's not a plum color at all. It's a coral color, but not opaque coral. It is very different from the other colors i've seen. I'm definitely digging it.

Love! I have been lemming an RBL sheer, so I was quick to jump on this when I saw it at Ulta. I think it's lovely. 2 coats give me a glossy, warm, rose-colored tint on my nails. I am the Streak Queen of the Universe and I didn't have any trouble with this polish streaking at all--seriously, I was amazed at how easily it went on. Usually I don't even wear polish on my fingernails because of my little streaking issue, but I think this polish has changed that. I topped my nails off with Seche Vite 10 minutes ago and now I'm typing without incident. Yeowza! Lastly on my List of Things I Love About This Polish is the rubberized handle. Genius! It does take a little of the adventure out of doing my nails as I don't spend lots of time per mani stressing about whether or not I'm going to drop nail polish everywhere when the slick-handled cap sploots out of my fingers, but I can live with that. If it wears well, I'll come back and give it a 5.
UPDATE: It's a 5! I applied on Saturday and had great wear until Thursday. continued >>
Normally, I love Orly's products, but I'm not crazy about this one. Even though it's a sheer tint, the color is too dark for my fair skin and makes my nails look almost a deep mauve color - definitely not a healthy, natural pink. Goes on streaky and too bright in spots. For the life of me, I can't get it to apply evenly because the product is too thick and dries too quickly to a tacky (but not dry) finish, and then wrinkles and smudges. Takes quite some time to dry completely, even with a layer-penetrating topcoat, so definitely use hours before bedtime. I'm giving it 3 stars because it's super-glossy; the packaging is great with the Orly rubberized brush handle; it's free of toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP; and the color would probably work on someone else.
