I love this nail polish normally nail polish chips on me or peels very easily, this has not. I have been wearing it for almost 4 days doing dishes, cleaning, ect. And it still looks as great as it did the day I applied it!!
This was such a disappointment. I have been looking for a gentle polish to wear that would help treat my nails. I've noticed they seem to get a little weak after wearing normal polish for awhile. I truly thought this would be the answer. I do think the polish was gentle enough on my nails that they were able to recover from excessive polish. Unfortunately, the formula manages to be thin, clumpy and sticky simultaneously. This makes the product almost impossible to apply evenly. I've never had such a streaky application of lacquer. Then, because I was forced to try and even out the streaks, the polish coats ended up a bit thick. This made the drying process take forever. While I have wide nails, the brush size was simply awkward. It was very difficult to work with. I have the clear coat of this line. I think I'll stick with that . Sorry Orly. This product is a great idea but it needs improvement.

Love the Breathable line! Stays on my nails usually for a week until I use Orly remover! Stays on when I use gloves & do yard weeding! Nails no longer peel thanks to Orly. Thank you to Ulta for FINALLY carrying it! Let's have more colors & products by them!!

Reviewing Orly Breathable in color "You Had Me At Hydrangea."
I tried so hard to get this polish to last!
I loved the color - first coat looks streaky and uneven, but the second coat makes it look nice. I even tried with Orly Breathable Top Coat, but no matter what I tried, the polish starts wearing off within one day.
Before the end of day 2 it looked like I'd been clawing through tunnels or something.
Returned it and purchased ZOYA in color "Saint" which is a very similar color, so far it's lasting nicely!
Tamira from Roanoke Va
The quality is horrible. It chipped and looked horribly dull.
Paula from Mississippi
Unfortunately, not the polish I was hoping for. Love the color after 2 coats but it is thick already and haven't had it more than a month. It takes forever to dry and chipped easily so for the price I am not pleased.

"you had me at hydrangea" is pictured as a very bright blue, but is realistically closer to a pastel periwinkle color. it's still a beautiful color, but it's definitely not what I thought I was getting. seems to be a common trend when using ultas pictures to determine color

I love You Had Me at Hydrangea! Very pretty blue color with a bit of shimmer. Does not stain my nails.
She's a Wildflower is such a pretty color. I get compliments on it all the time. Goes on great, right no bubbles. Does not stain my nails.

I have the color "Light My (Campfire)" and it's beautiful. Such a striking metallic orange/copper! It only needed one coat. I did use a top and base coat, because I don't trust polishes that claim otherwise. The top coat really made the color pop!
Annie from Duluth, mn
Two coats and this color was fab! Nail edges started to wear on day four, which for me is a long time! On day 6 now and still look good!
Lex from Seattle, WA
7 day wear and only minor chipping at tips while working a hands on job. The color she's a wildflower needs 2 coats for full coverage, 3 coats for super sparkle power but would also make a lovely topper. Applies very smooth and even. Pink-blue shift in light, it makes me happy every time I catch a glimpse! Not a color a lot of salons carry and if they did they would likely charge a premium for chrome. This bottle is affordable and a great quality product.

Seeing such an improvement in my nails since using this breathable polish. My nails are better than when I was in my 30's

I wanted a deep red for Christmas and this was the perfect "Christmas Red "! ! Good wear. Great color. Would def but again.

Lovely color. Exactly what I was looking for. I needed a red for Christmas.
Lisa from Kingsford
This has quickly become my new favorite color to use. I love the iridescence! It seems to go with everything. I've had tons of compliments on it. I've already purchased another one for a backup.
Sharon from Edmond OK
Goes on smoothly and color is great but started chipping on day 2.
Diane from KY
I was looking for something to wear while I can't use regular polish for a few months, but I get bored of bare nails. It's nice, like I'm not even wearing any polish at all, but still get the pretty pop of color. Unfortunately, it is a little streaky and not super opaque. The gray creme color I ordered was also more of an off white than what I was expecting. Sad, but not worth returning over. Otherwise, I like it. Keep in mind, it's just two thin coats of color and no top coat, so it's gonna scratch pretty easily. It's most suitable for a 15-minute mani and a few days of gentle wear.

After doing gel dips on my mail and realizing I couldn't wait to take them off after one popped off, I damaged my nails badly. After a year I started using the Breathable polish by Orly and my nails are better than my pre-gel experience!
Jojostpete from Clearwater, Fl
I don't understand the negative reviews because this is a great polish. I get so many compliments on the color…..Shes a Wildflower
I gave 4 stars because for me it maybe lasts a week, however, goes on easy and smooth and dries really fast
Sandy from Decatur, AL
Goes on great. I've had multiple compliments on the color. I was looking for a subtle Halloween orange, this was it.
Stephanie from San Diego, CA
Doesn't apply smoothly. Brush was cut unevenly. Tried to use without a topcoat--the polish dried but never hardened so I had to use my usual quick-dry top coat from Superchic Lacquer. Can't see much of a duochrome shift either. Disappointing overall.
Anne37 from Washington state
This was a disaster! First off each coat applied sheer like a drugstore polish! When applying more it just got sticky and gooey! Tried drying both air dry and with blowdryer! Wouldn't dry it just kept coming off on different thing I hand touched! Just didn't look good either! Total 0!
Makayla from New York City, NY
This nail polish is amazing. It took two coats of fuedian flip and it DIDN'T CHIP FOR TEN WHOLE DAYS. Y'all I was putting these nails through so much and not a single chip. you'll need a power drill or sledge hammer to even make a dent. BUY THIS RN!!
Ashley from Atlantic City, New Jersey
It's great when you just want a nice shine but don't want to commit to a vibrant or dark color.
Heather from Pennsylvania
It is a nice sheer pink color. Think natural nails but better. The fact that it has ingredients to help nails be healthier is a definite plus.
