Most Helpful Positive Review I love you, orly
After a few bad experiences with OPI, a brand which I used to love, I stumbled upon Orly by accident. I had a very specific shade of blue in mind and had conceded my defeat in its acquisition until the shade of my dreams jumped out at me and slapped me from the comfort of its display. I bought the bottle and fell in love. This particular brand, though there is a difference in polish viscosity from time to time, has managed to be the longest-wearing nail polish I have ever used. I almost always pair it with Orly's Bonder and have nearly perfect polish for weeks. The special color offerings change often, so the variety is nice. I am often complimented on my nails and especially that shade of blue (which I have now purchased several times over). Unless there is a ohmygoshineedthatnow shade in another brand, I wouldn't buy anything else.
Most Helpful Critical Review Compare to OPI
I still polish my own, natural nails by myself :-) unlike women in my group. So I buy nail polish and keep them and use them multiple times, unlike those who go to salons.
I've been buying OPI for 20 years when a bottle was around $6, and switched to ORLY when I found them on sale because paying for $10 for a bottle of polish is not feasible for me.
I LOVE the Beach Cruiser BTW, it's the best Hot Pink color you'll find!. I've gone through 3 bottles before reviewing.
What I don't like about it: It chips in chunks, compared to the way OPI polish recedes.
After 3-4 days, my old OPI polish would recede off the sides and front of the nail. With ORLY, the polish peel off in large chips, as in whole corners of the nail.
Now I have Hot Pink chips everywhere... I'd see hot pink flecks on the floor of the car, in the bathroom, between the keys on the desktop keyboard, and on the bed.
I find myself picking up Hot Pink chips everywhere I go....
As far as long lasting: I find them the same or less than my previous ones.
If these were not on sale, I would stop buying them.

"In the groove" is the PERFECT burnt orange color for fall.
No, the nail polish was very Gunky.
Sandy Cheeks from Bakersfield Ca
That's a nice color
ORLY has the best formula and even more importantly the best
Savannah from San Antonio,TX
I only need 2 layers of this nail polish but I do 3 for good measure. I use the polish with the base and top coat and they work wonderful together.
Purple Crush is NOT purple.
Elle from Chicago
This is not purple. It's not even arguably fuscia. It is pink. It is a pretty berry pink. If you came here looking for purple or fuscia, keep it moving. If you wanted bright berry pink, then this might be your polish. Pigmented and ok, but not purple.
Beautiful in the bottle
Sparkles from Ark
Total waste of money. I returned it.
It's too clear on the nails. It needs to show that beautiful color on the nails, too.
Beautiful in the bottle, not on nails

It needs to show that beautiful color on the nails, too.
G from WI
Such a creamy consistency and SO opaque truly with just two coats. I am absolutely obsessed with this brand. And I love that they're vegan and cruelty free!

Would not dry !
Hollars from El Paso Tx
Omg the color looked beautiful in the bottle , I was so exited . Did my toes first , did 3 thin coats to get an opaque application since I didn't want to wear a white polish under . I wanted about 5 minutes between coats , my typically application process for my polish . I had to base but I had buffed my nails . I then did my hands and only did 2 coats . It was very hard to work with but once I was done I was satisfied . Waited about 30 minutes and my nails were still smuchy . I thought it was only my hands decided to give it it another 10 minutes . And still nothing ! I decided to remove the polish , and once I was done I checked on my toes . The polish on my toes was still not dry! It has been over an hour since I had applied it to my toes . I am so disappointed and shocked :( idk what happened

I have been updating my nail polish replacing the old with safer polish brands. I found Orly which is USA made with a 12 free formula and decided to give it a try. I absolutely LOVE it!! The polish goes on smoothly and has a professional look. I purchased Blazing Sunset which was the perfect color I was looking for...a neon coral and It's Brittney Beach a bright blue. I use gel top coat which helps my polish last longer. Now looking at other shades of Orly as Fall will be approaching.
Watery and chips easily
PinkCake from USA
The colors I purchased are beautiful, but unfortunately, the quality doesn't hold up. The polish is watery, sheer, and goes on uneven. Be prepared to have to use 4 coats. I painted my nails at night, and by the next morning, some had already chipped. There are much better brands out there for similar prices. Would not purchase again, even for a really cool color.
Leelee from VA
Orly is the brand you go to when you're not sure of which BRAND to buy. Inexpensive, applies well, readily available, lots of color choices, no premature chipping & consistent quality.
Great color for summer
Kujo from Wichita
I was craving a neon and couldn't find many this year. Then I happened upon this little guy. It just makes me happy to look at. Great opaque pigment. It really pops.
AnjiP from Hammond IN
Color is true, not clumpy. Lasts awhile depending on how much you wash your hands.
Will definitely buy again!
Tarasuzie from California
Beautiful color, I've never found this color in any other polish. I absolutely love it. Will be my new favorite in my collection.
Ladygumbo from Denham Springs
I've had this polish on for 6 days now and no chips! Very pretty color. I would buy this again.
Watery and uneven
JM from Denver, Co
I tried this nail polish inVintage because the color was beautiful but it just didn't go on well. My mom and I have both tried and it is just watery and doesn't go on evenly. Very disappointed.
Fun summer color
Donnahalee from Pomona, NY
Perfect summer color that went on smooth and last
Mandi from Union, Missouri
Awesome color, picture doesn't do it justice!!!!!!!!!!
I would not purchase again

I painted my nails and less than 24 hours later, they were all peeling.
MY FAVORITE NAIL POLISH
Nail artist from MI
Orly is one of my favorite nails brands. It's my go to especially for neons and brights! The formula is very smooth and the brush is the perfect shape and size to apply perfectly. I do my own nails and I use Orly in almost every design and get lots of compliments. I like my polish to be as opaque as in the bottle and Orly dries pretty quickly and is so smooth that building up that opaqueness is easy. Most look great after 2 coats but I always do 2 light coats topped with 2 thicker coats to get the true color. I have so many Orly polishes and was also subscribed to their Color Pass subscription service (you get all the new full collections early) because I love it so much! Neons pictured are all Orly. The yellow is Glowstick and a must buy!
Love it! Goes on like a dream!
Scroll from Kokomo, IN
Love that it is chip and wear resistant for a few days. If you need to change it, it dries in about 3-4 minutes.
I use the Orly base treatment coat for long lasting wear and to repair my damaged nails.
Won't wear it
Ma from Van Wert ohio
Disappointed in colors.
Long, lasting nail polish
Smiley 075 from Missouri
I have found Orly to be long lasting/wearing. This color I got, goes in well but just not the "fallish" color I was looking for.
