If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I am a real nail polish geek, and you'll also know that Orly are one of my favourite nail polish brands. I have been buying Orly polishes for many years, so when I was asked if I would like to try a couple of polishes from their new Coastal Crush Collection for summer 2017, I was thrilled and of course accepted.
The shades I have are Summer Fling a bright almost neon peachy/coral shade and Sea You Soon a bright blue with shimmer, there are 6 shades in the collection, including a deeper blue, a purple, a red and a bright pink, and all are stunning shades and perfect for summer.
Summer Fling 18ml - £7.95
Summer Fling is the perfect shade for me, I adore coral toned nail polish and wear coral polishes a lot throughout the summer months. Summer Fling is bordering on neon but not quite, but it is very bright. It is a peachy/coral shade and looks lovely on the nails and would be gorgeous on darker skin tones or with a suntan.
Sea You Soon 18ml - £7.95
Sea You Soon is a lovely bright blue shade with shimmer, it was hard to capture the shimmer in a photograph but I did take a close up which is below. I don't suit blue nail polish unfortunately so I have since passed this on to a friend, but if you do like blue shades, this is a beautiful shade, it's such a shame blues don't suit me.
Application & Wear Time
The nail polish has a wide brush which I prefer as I find it a lot easier to use and one stroke is enough for most of my nails. The polish applies well and isn't streaky at all, I needed 2 coats of polish and both had a lovely glossy finish but I did finish with a top coat as I always do with all polishes.
Orly polishes always last really well on my nails and these polishes were no exception, I wore the polish for 6 days without chipping before having to remove it for a hospital appointment but it would have lasted longer I'm sure. My eldest daughter wore Summer Fling without a top coat for 5 days without chipping also. I always have great wear time with Orly polishes as do my girls and my mum too, she has also been a fan for a few years after borrowing one of my Orly polishes and loving how long it lasted on her nails.
Aside from the huge colour range, brilliant wear time and excellent nail treatments available, I have been purchasing Orly for many years because they are free from any nasty ingredients. Orly polishes are all 12 free meaning they are formulated without Toluene, Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, MEHQ/HQ, MIT, Parabens, Animal Derived Ingredients or Gluten.
As always, Orly did not disappoint with their Coastal Crush collection nail polishes, the application was effortless, the polishes look stunning on the nails and they last brilliantly well too. I love that Orly polishes contain 18ml of product which is much more than most brands meaning they last a long time in my collection and they don't gloop after a while either, I have Orly polishes in my collection that I have had for a super long time and they still apply beautifully and aren't thick and gloopy at all.
As always with Orly polishes, I love the new Coastal Crush collection and will definitely be picking up the bright pink shade which is called No Regrets, all 6 shades are beautiful and perfect summer shades, if you haven't already, I would definitely recommend you check this collection out.
