Orly Nail Polish
Advantages: long lasting, rubber grip handle
Disadvantages: The name of the polishes does not give any idea of the colour
Orly nail polishes are a professional brand used in a wide range of salons. They have a wide range of colours. The only thing I find confusing is the names of the polishes such as, naughty, your fired, moonlit madness. From the names of the polishes you wouldn't be able to determine what colour the actual polish is, but I still find the names fun and unusual. Orly polishes are not available to buy on High Street stores these have to be purchased in salons, direct from Orly or on stockist online.
**Size and Price**
These polishes are available in two different sizes 18ml and then the miniature range bottles are 5.4ml bottles. Not all colours are available in each of the sizes.
The 18ml bottles are priced between £4.39 and £8.00.
The 5.4 bottles are priced between £2.30 and £4.20
Orly polishes come in stylish glass bottles and the well known handles are designed with a non slip rubberised grip. The colour of the rubberised grips change depending on some of the collections of the polishes. The Orly miniature bottles do not have the rubber handles they just have a plain black plastic handle. The miniature bottles are ideal stocking fillers and to take on holiday.
Around Christmas and Valentine's Day they offer a retail pack with 5 Orly miniatures in which usually cost around £9.00 which is a fabulous price and looks trendy and a lot more expensive.
Orly has 11 collections of nail varnishes.

** Application **
With the Orly polishes you need to apply to thin coats of the polish. This polish if applied with Orly base and top coat will last up to 6 weeks without even chipping once. The polish when applied gives a solid colour and is not watery and does not leave brush strokes.
I had Naughty on which is a very deep red almost black for my holiday it was applied a week before I went and I finally took it off two weeks after my holiday only because it had grown up so much, but there was still no chips even though I had been in the pool most days and on the beach on the sand so in my personal opinion this is a very hard wearing polish. I have used spa rituals, OPI and Jessica and Essie in the past which are also nice polishes but none of them last as long as the Orly polishes. I think the bottles look very professional and the wide range of colours are endless. I feel the price is reasonable for the quality of the polish.
Summary: A very impressive long lasting polish
