About Orly: For over 35 years Orly has been perfecting their nail polishes and treatments. Orly has been featured in O (Oprah Magazine), Allure, Natural Heath and countless other publications. They also understand a polish is only as good as you can apply it well, which is why they developed the patented Gripper Cap ® to allow for flawless performance.
Application Instructions: For best results first apply a base coat to clean, bare nails. Then apply 2-3 coats of colored polish (depending on its consistency and thickness). For long lasting wear finish with a top coat.
Air of Mystique is another excellent formula by Orly - I have nothing even remotely close to this in my ever growing collection, this is easily a 1 coat polish, however two coats does bring out the full color and shimmer. Quick dry time. A beautiful deep teal, perhaps leaning a little more to the green side ever so slightly as opposed to blue. It reminds me of blue-spruce trees, although far deeper and darker in color. Excellent staying power even without base or top coat. For dry nails: I would recommend a light base coat with this one to prevent any staining. I applied to fingers and toes and found for whatever reason while my finger nails didn't stain at all, my toe nails did ever so slightly, although they tend to be more on the dry side compared to my finger nails. Air of Mystique is a fun fall & winter shade, and one you could easily wear year round, adding toppers to play with the color. Super impressed with Orly trying new unique shades in the last year or so. Their formulas have been so impressive with their staying power and buttery smoothness, plus the brush is excellent which equals application perfection. Orly is certainly neck in neck with Zoya these days and in some cases even better.
