In 1975, manicure maven Jeff Pink created a quick ‘n’ easy, natural nail look for screen actresses who had no time to spare in between wardrobe changes. His timesaving manicures were feminine and timeless, never upstaging the outfit. So naturally, they became an instant favorite among stylists and starlets, eventually hitting the runways of Paris! That is how nail polish purveyor Orly was born—and with it, tip treatments, nail lacquers, and the very first better-for-your-nails gel. Today, Orly is available in hundreds of colors in various finishes and limited edition collections!
The drying time is remarkable. My manicure can survive almost a month or two without chipping! This matte top coat is my fave top coat! I'm almost done with my bottle and it starts to thicken to a melted hot glue stick like consistency. When I found out that this is very helpful on my nails ..Will recommend it to others... thumbs up5 months ago
I like this matte top coat. It does what it's supposed to do and I've used it over glossy and glitter nail polishes—both became matte. You do have to make sure that your strokes are even and quick to get a smooth finish. Otherwise, you'll get some ridges. I also love how it's a quick dry top coat. It doesn't say that it is, but it hardens in less than 5 minutes so I can move on to doing other things with my hands.11 months ago
Orly never failed to meet my expectations. I have tried other local brands but it doesn't end up very matte or the "matte finish" lasts for only 2-3 days. But Orly's matte top coat lasts til I just remove my nail polish. I have also tried using it as my base coat and it was fine! Didn't leave my nails messy and yellow after removing my nail color. A really must have!over 1 year ago
Gives a great matte finish but it wears off within two or three days, and the nails become a little shiny. Not a huge deal, you can just give them another coat but it'd be nice if it lasted. It dries really quickly too. Definitely a fine product from Orly! :)over 1 year ago
I love this matte top coat by orly! I've been looking for this because I had a matte top coat that fades off after 3days or so, but this lasts for a week or 2! It dries so fast after applying so be sure you do apply quickly. I guess the price is over than I expected but it is worth splurging 500 bucks for this because it does it claims very much.almost 2 years ago
While there are cheaper alternatives, I find that this does the job the best. On days that I just want to add a touch of dimesion to my nails or doing a bit of nail art, this is easy as pie to apply and a dream when it dries. I probably still think it's too pricey for what it can do, and for that I might not repurchase as often.almost 2 years ago
Bonus: they help with breakouts, too!
Same benefits, half the price.
