ORLY Breathable Treatment + Color Review

I received the ORLY Breathable Treatment + Color in Nourishing Nude in my September 2016 Allure Beauty Box.


What’s to Love?

This is the first time I have seen a “Breathable” nail polish. According to Orly the polish allows oxygen and hydration to penetrate nails which is supposed to nourish and strengthen you nails. It’s also got argan oil, vitamin B5, and vitamin C.

I applied one coat of the Nourishing Nude shade and it pretty much feels and smells like regular polish. I think I was expecting it to smell a little different.

The consistency is more on the goopy side (as opposed to a thin polish) on the brush but I was easily able to polish may nails quickly. The polish dried very hard and the color is more like a clear top coat and it’s got great shine. The second coat (see below) didn’t look that much different and did take longer to dry.


I do want to try an actual color to see how a pigmented shade looks and I’m curious to see if my nails are healthier after a few weeks.

Overall I think this is a nice nail polish for $8.99 and worth trying to see if it makes my nails stronger.


Finding Dory Nail Polish Creation

I’m not a professional nail artist so when my daughter asked for Finding Dory toenails I had to get creative. There was no way my middle-aged eyes were going to paint a clown fish on a tiny toe nail so I went abstract and she loved it. Easy Peasy, only took me 10 minutes.

The Finding Dory Recipe for cool toenails!

First I used one coat for Orly Color Blast in Bright Blue Neon. Orly is an awesome quality nail polish that stays on long and is true to color.

Next I applied a coat of Ulta Salon Formula Nail Lacquer in Love Fern which is clear nail polish with this amazing sea blue glitter inside. Now I’ve tried using this polish alone and was not that thrilled. However on the Orly Bright Blue Neon it looks like Dory’s underwater world.

So there you have it Dory fans!

Orly Color Blast Neon Nail Polish Review

After my disastrous crayon lipstick failure this morning I decided to review something that works!

The Orly Color Blast Neon Nail Polish is perfect for Summer!


What I love about Orly Color Blast.

I picked up 3 of these neon nail polishes for Summer. Bright Blue Neon, Tangerine Neon and Pearly Pink Neon. I typically only polish my toe nails so they look good in sandals. These shades look really sharp and bright with black leather shoes.

This polish goes on super smooth and dries fast. One tip is that you’re going to need two coats for good coverage.
