A review for you today of the Glosser Super High-Shine Topcoat by Orly* that I’ve had for about a year now and never reviewed even though I use it quite frequently! I don’t have much experience with Orly, they’re not hugely available in the UK but they seem to be more popular in Boots these days and I hope they start releasing their holiday colours over here soon because they have some gorgeous Christmas colours.
Orly claims that Glosser will give ‘lasting protection and super-slick shine’ as a topcoat.
Before I get into it I have to mention to bottle because the lid has a grip handle which is amazing, it’s really easy to open and helps with shaky hands application. More companies need to use it, it’s genius.
Now this is a very thin formulation, which is both a blessing and a curse. It’s great because since it’s thin, it doesn’t need long to dry. But if you don’t get enough on the brush you end up with brush strokes on your freshly painted nails and the colour of you nail varnish stuck to the brush. Not fun.
The shine and gloss claim I don’t really see that much, it’s shiny but so is pretty much every topcoat. And I don’t think it makes my nail polish last a huge amount longer either but it’s alright. I’m ambivalent to it. I think it’s just an average product with a good bottle so I’m not sure if I’m going to repurchase this even though it lasts an age, I just prefer something with some sort of drying quality.
