It takes a lot for me to tear myself away from my adored gel manicures, but this nail polish, my friends, might just have achieved the unachievable. A miracle worker when it comes to covering up my unhealthy, slightly broken nails, it only takes one coat to achieve the desired transparency – and dries *super* quickly. Perfect for girls who are always in a rush like me. As for its staying power? I wore it for a solid week before it started to chip. Impressive, huh?

I am a dark nail girly, even in summer to be honest, so the first sight of Orly’s Breathable One Step Manicure in the shade Fresh Clove had me drooling. The fact that it genuinely only needs two coats for an opaque, high-shine finish was my favourite part about the formula (anything to make life easy, right?), but its quick-drying and non-chip qualities closely followed. I’ve now had this mani for over 5 days which – unless you have the patience to apply a base coat, top coat and end-of-the-world-proof coat – is totally unheard of for non-gel nail polishes. So I’m well and truly an Orly stan forever.

After the festive period my nails definitely needed a break. The Orly Breathable 1-Step varnish was perfect for my time away from gels allowing my nails to do exactly what it says on the tin, breath. With additional nourishing ingredients such as argon oil, pro vitamin b and c, I feel like my nails aren’t only looking on trend, but also getting the special TLC they so desperately need.
This product has incredible quick drying properties and the wide brush is perfect for a smooth application. To top it all off this product is vegan and cruelty free so what’s not to love. I can’t wait to try this product in a range of colours as the season change.
