Personal / Press Recommendations: "I had problems with ordinary nail varnish drying my nails causing them to lift off the nail bed. I spent a lot of time looking for natural nail polish online and tried a company in the USA before I managed to find yourselves. I have been very happy with the quick service from SoOrganic and so far I have not had any problems with the Orly nail polish." Margaret, Nov 2013.
How to create the perfect home manicure... For the longest lasting manicure, always start by applying a base coat. Orly Bonder is brilliant as it's rubberised formula helps to prevent chipping.
After your base coat is dry, apply 1 or 2 coats of your chosen colour. Apply in long sweeping strokes from the nail bed to the tip. Try to leave a tiny gap next to the cuticle and at the sides of the nail. If you flood the nail bed and sides the result will be messy.
Try to have enough nail colour on the brush that you can work quickly and avoid having to re-dip the brush mid-nail.
Allow the polish to dry a little before applying a Top Coat. This will protect your colour and prevent chipping. If you have long nails, an expert tip is to run a little top coat under the free edge of the nail so that it completely seals the colour at the end of the nail too.
For the most professional finish you can then apply 1 to 2 drops of Flash Dry Drops to each nail to aid drying and leave them with a gorgeous high gloss finish.
If you have made any mistakes they can be whisked away easily with an orange stick, wrapped in a tiny bit of cotton wool and dipped into Gentle Polish Remover to leave you with perfect, salon quality nails.
Finding a nail polish that works effectively yet contains clean ingredients is tricky. We have tested a LOT! Orly Nail Polish is free from the 3 main nasties, DBP, Formaldehyde and Toluene. We do not claim that this is an organic or natural nail polish (there's no such thing if you want it to actually work), but it is free from the worst ingredients and stays on brilliantly.
