Orly Shockwave Nail Lacquer - Review

Along with the neon brights of Orly's Feel the Vibe collection they also released a small collection
of four polishes dubbed Electronica - which has an 80's pop feel but also captures perfectly the shades
that have been a huge hit on the runway of many a fashion designer.

As most will know blue is very much the shade to be sporting on your nails - so every publication and superstar will have us believe anyway! Finding the perfect blue has proved to be rather problematic for me,
I love blue shades on every person apart from me!

Anyway Shockwave by Orly is a bright cobalt blue that has a crème finish and applies bright than it appears 
in the bottle - for me this is the perfect transitions shade when the cooler months come a knocking
and neon polish doesn't seem quite so fitting! It's bright enough to not look too winter appropriate
yet deep enough that it won't look bizarre in the cooler weather!

Orly Shockwave applies beautifully, two coats and it is completely opaque.
It dries quickly and to a high glossy sheen. As with all Orly polishes it features a decent sized brush
that is easy to control and very comfortable to use due to the rubber grip handle/lid.

Have you seen the Orly Electronica range yet? Any shade you must have?

Nail Polish Disclaimer - I no longer comment on the wear time as we all apply polishes differently (top/base coats etc) and as I change my polish almost daily sometimes several times a day due to swatching purposes I do not feel that I can fairly comment on wear time.

  1. that is an awesome blue. I really need to go take a look at this.

  2. Gorgeous colour. I really want a blue like this, a kind of 'royal' blue?
