Orly ~ Candy Cane Lane

Orly ~ Candy Cane Lane
Bright shiny candy-apple red crème


This polish is from Orly’s “‘Tis The Season” 2010 holiday collection. I’ve only bought it recently, so it’s still available and easily accessible.

It’s a beautiful red crème. The formula is great – it is Orly after all – and it was practically opaque after just one coat. I applied another one to see if it would ad more depth to it, but honestly it didn’t. So if you’re careful with the application, it could quite easily be a one coater. Drying time between the coats is alright though, so personally I think I’ll stick with two coats in future manis too. :)

Here it is – no top coat. Look at that shine, isn’t it just amazing?! The picture is taken in the sun and is pretty colour accurate. I love reds like this!


I knew I wouldn’t leave it like that. I wanted to stamp on it. I picked an all nail design on a plate called H22 and stamped with a black no name stamping polish. I like this stamping plate. The all nail designs are more than big enough to cover the entire thumb nail.

Here’s what it looks like with one coat of Orly’s Polishield 3-in-1 top coat. But I won’t be using this top coat for stamped nails again – it pulls on the design and even though I don’t really notice it in real life, it annoys me.


What’s your favourite Orly, if you have one?

    1. Deep blurples are so beautiful. Nothing beats a good purple, IMO.
