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.
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.

Ordered Crush topper online to be used for St. Valentine's day. Did a test run. 1. Don't swipe it on like regular nail polish or you will end up with some dots and a LOT of clear coat.
More like a dab on method so you actually get the d &h.
I actually pulled out some product, dabbed it onto a piece of plastic to get the amount of hearts out/that I wanted to use. It's really the only way to get "control" of the dots & hearts. And most of the hearts do settle on the bottom of bottle. With that said the application on most of these style toppers (orly, opi, etc) are pretty much the same. 2. It def takes LONGER to dry. I intend to only do 1 accent nail per hand (yes, I do my own natural nails, lol) 3. The dots are all white and the hearts are a bright red and some hearts are pale pink, can look lavender in some light. So if ya don't mind a little more work & a longer dry time--be PATIENT before adding a top coat or you will have to start all over!..(minus 2 stars)..this is a fun way to express love day < 3.
I am going to keep it but have already bought the cutest nail stickers as back-up.

Orly is by far the best polish I've had that doesn't chip, beats out OPI hands down. I only wish ulta would carry more colors.

Not a good quality.

Good consistency! Nice bright color! Like the way it looks on me…many compliments.

I bought this polish for my grands and while it is adorable, the polish comes off easily. With or without a top coat. I've never had a Orly polish that peels right off. If you're going to fun this is a good fit as long as you aren't expecting a marathon

Love the color. Bright but not too bright. Pink is quickly becoming my new favorite.

I have never has such a good coverage with cofetti polish! The application was smooth and evenly distributed. These colors are so cute together, and can be worn alone with only two coats. I will definintely buy more of ORLY's confetti toppers!

touch of magic is so stunning. I have over 100 nail polishes but this has gone into regular rotation because it is so unique. The color is so different from mass market polishes.

I love this polish. It lasts a long time and the color is really cute.

Paired "Let's Go Girls" with a base of bright pink nail lacquer for a "Barbie" bachelorette party vibe & it is PERFECTION! Long Lasting, so glittery & pink & purple. Slightly clumpy to apply, but with a couple of extra swipes, covers beautifully!

love this shade combination. Sparkly and chocked full of glitter. The problem The web person seems to be having is getting sku right . I'd order the pink one as well if they would correct the sku. I have noticed this with other products on the site as well.

My daughter and I both love this polish. We used it to do our French manicure.
Krystina from Wilmington, NC
The prettiest, funnest, glittery polish ever! Beautiful alone or topped on any color honestly! I bought it last week and I've painted my nails multiple times with the polish to see what it looks like on top of various colors. Love it!
The orally Polish was very thin and runny even after you put it on your nails.

My nails looked so sweet & fun!

Bright, just the right amount of glitter. If you like a more Solid look on your nails you're going to want to put two coats. Takes a little bit longer to dry than most nail polishes that are not a quick dry. Goes on very smooth no streaks. Hard to achieve sometimes with a gold glitter but this one is absolutely perfect. Definitely a great buy to wear over the holidays.

I got this for my ring finger and was not disappointed. Matched perfectly with red and was a hit at the Xmas party!!!
Vero from Southern California
Peefect for the holidays. I use it as a top coat with different base colors and love it.
AMAZING color, a true gold and each stroke is saturated in glitter. Not big chunks but super super fine. Can use 1 coat over a color and it sparkles but 3 coats on its own and WOW it's a party on your hand, lol... It wears well on natural nails with a base and top coats. Go to for the holiday season, goes with everything from jeans and a sweater to the classic velvet LBD. Very classy not juvenile,

Very good, a little pricey, tho.

Picked up So Fly, Britney Beach, and Blazing Sunset for some fun summer color. Love the big bottle, rubberized cap, and fat brush. One coat opacity but if you use Orly calcium base coat, 2 coats of color, then topcoat manicure lasts almost 2 weeks with minimal touchup even on the edges. Hands down most beautiful long lasting colors I have ever used and I demonstrate cars so nails always have to look nice. Went back and bought 30 more bottles and retired my OPI collection. I'm an Orly girl for life! 💅🏼

Very pretty shear color with glitter but if you wanted the beautiful brown taupe color, you will be disappointed.

I've bought several of these since they came out last year! Great polish, doesn't chip for days! Excellent brush too!!
