Orly ~ Life’s a Beach

Orly ~ Life’s a Beach
Bright neon orange crème

I’m not done wearing neons yet. Sometimes it’s great to wear something really loud on the nails. Life’s a Beach is such a loud colour and I love it. It’s from the Pacific Coast Highway collection from summer 2016. I originally bought two polishes from that collection, but having tried this one made me order two more!

I used two really easy coats for full opacity and the drying time is good. Orly definitely knows how to make great neon polishes.

The brightness did freak my camera out a bit, but this picture is colour accurate. Two coats, no topcoat:

Wow, right? There’s nothing discrete over this beauty.

I stamped on it. The motif is from the Moyra stamping plate 04-Animalistic. I stamped with Colors by Llarowe’s stamping polish “The Heart Bleeds”. It’s a raspberry red holographic stamping polish and it’s beautiful. It’s not very easy to work with though. It dries a bit too fast and it doesn’t let any stamper pick it up from the plate. Once it’s on the nails it’s beautiful and I dare say that it’s worth the hassle.

I’m super pleased with this polish. I love neons that don’t require white underwear and only two coats.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Crème
Overall impression: Really bright, great if you love loud polishes like I do.
Buy again: Yes
