This Orly Glosser High Shine Topcoat* was in my #midsummermeet goody bag from way back last summer and I’d completely forgot about it and discovered it hiding amongst my far too large nail polish collection (which needs to be culled). I’ve used it as my topcoat the past 3 times I’ve painted my nails and lets just say I’m smitten.
I’m one of those people that chips my manicure almost within an hour of applying it and thats so frustrating, my job involves alot of crafting & using my hands and so that never helps preserve my pretty polish. Each time I have applied this topcoat my manicure has lasted a whole WEEK without chipping. At first I thought it was a fluke but no after using it 3 times over the past 4 weeks my nail polish has lasted a whole 7 days without chipping and in my household thats a flipping miracle.
Yes this is meant to be a super high shine topcoat and although it did leave my nail polish looking glossy and shiny it was not any better for that than my Sally Hansen or Avon topcoats but it was the way it helped preserve my manicure that really bowled me over. I am very impressed and won’t be straying from this topcoat. I will say that the shine from this topcoat didn’t dull over the week & as my manicures never normally last that long I can’t say if my others did – so thats a plus for Orly.
The packaging is user friendly in that the purple lid has a rubber feel and is easy to grip / use, the bottle is frosted glass and gives the liquid a blue tint. The brush is quite long and not too thick & the product itself is quite a thin liquid and smells fairly strong (but the scent doesn’t last) I did find it easy to apply and my manicure dried quickly and evenly.
Orly Glosser High Shine Topcoat £10.90 for 18ml
Have you tried this topcoat? Or any Orly polishes you would recommend, I’m intrigued to see if their nail polishes are as good quality as their topcoat.
