I first started purchasing these nail colours a few weeks ago. It looked like a new line of Orly polishes so colour-me-happy I bought 2 right off the hop. Tried ’em, loved ’em, and now I can’t get enough of ’em!
This polish is a treatment+color as well as the base and top coats. It’s a one stop shop. One bottle, 2 coats, your done. This polish dries fast and has an excellent pigment payoff especially after 2 coats. It also has excellent wear value. It does not chip off as easily as other brands (*cough* Essie), I am finding I can go days before noticing a chip. My nails look pretty farting good all week.
Their colour ranges from clear, baby pink, and mint green to dark purple and a wicked red. I want them all and I am slowly working on my collection. I pick one new one up on my weekly Shoppers Drug Mart trips. It’s a little pick-me-up for getting out of the house and getting errands done. I might buy the red one next. I feel like it would look so fab on my toes!
The formula is smooth with a perfectly sculpted brush for applying professional looking self-manis and pedis. Easily lasts 7 days with minimal chipping. Addicting. Now that I have started to use this line it is the only one I want to use.
My nails these days are hard for me to grow. They are brittle and break making it hard for me to ultimately shape them the way I like. Since I started using the Breathable line [4-6 weeks ago], my nails grew out happy and healthy – just as the name suggests! They feel stronger and I have managed to grow them longer then I have in months. I have actually had to cut them down because they were getting too long for my personal comfort. Even in trimming I was able to trim my nails nicely instead of taking them down too far because it cut weird on a brittle, dry, nail. They are not too short and looking much better then this time 6 weeks ago. Literally the only polish I want to wear on my fingers and toes this Spring and Summer Season! I cannot wait to buy AND TRY (!) the next addition to my colour collection.
Solid 10/10 for this Quo+Orly collaboration. I have always enjoyed Orly Nail Polish and this line does not disappoint. I am literally excited to go out tomorrow (Saturday) morning to get me another shade. It’s a little thing but it’s a happy thing in my little world.
I may not be able to change my past or lift myself out of the depressive potholes I keep falling into but I can change my nails. It makes me happy to see a pretty colour on my nails [especially if I can GROW them!]. There have been times in the recent weeks I would just be lying in bed staring into space, zoning out into the wonderful world of “what ifs”, questioning everything, and I look at my new pretty nails that I did myself and it zaps me back to a happier thought. There are days when I may not even wash my face, let alone shower, but I will make time to paint my nails (not everyday, just some days). It is a small gesture of self care to myself and for whatever reason, it helps.
It’s a little pizzaz in my otherwise pizzaz-less outfit of track pants & my love’s sweatshirt. I would rate this line of nail polish a 4 out of 5 lipsticks for a great formula, being a 3-in-one, and because I am indeed addicted to buying them. It loses a lipstick, ironically, for it’s price point. It retails for about $10.99 CDN (when not on sale) and that just saddens me. I know that “higher-end” polish does indeed go for more then $10 a bottle but I personally prefer to pay LESS then $10 for one bottle of polish, especially at a drugstore.
So now we wait. For tomorrow we will have a new colour to apply to keep me reverting to happy thoughts all week. Until then take care and thank you for reading about how much I enjoy this new nail polish.
