Orly Nail Lacquer in Feel the Funk, swatch

Orly — Feel the Funk (Nail Lacquer) Swatch & Review

Collection: Orly 2016 Spring, Melrose

Feel the Funk is the second of two Orlys I got from Melrose, their Spring 2016 collection (Window Shopping is the other). I was under the impression that one was a pink holo glitter and one was a cranberry cream, but there was some kind of mistake. On Orly’s website, Feel the Funk looks pink (3rd from right), and Window Shopping looks pinkish-red (farthest right):

Feel the Funk (20868), described by Orly as an “ultra holographic glitter”, is actually more soft lavender than intense pink. They’re spot-on with the holographic glitter, though: holographic rainbow glitter that I’d class in the microglitter size is suspended throughout the polish in the perfect amount. It’s more than a bit princess-y looking, but I love it!

The formula applies very nicely. Two smooth coats distribute the glitter easily and give you a semi-opaque lavender purple base. I did three for the swatch just because I liked it amped up, but two coats are fine.

The polish dries to a relatively smooth finish, so you don’t even really need a top coat to smooth out any glitter bumps, if you don’t want to.

Orly Nail Lacquer retails for US$8.50 and is 0.6 US fl oz / 18 mL. Orly nail polishes are free of toluene, formaldehyde, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and are made in the USA.

Orly International Inc. was founded by Jeff Pink in 1975, in Los Angeles, CA, USA. Orly claims that Pink invented the “original French manicure” as a manicurist on Hollywood sets; while he might have come up with the name, and marketed it as an at-home kit in the 70s, others suggest that the style had been around since possibly the 1930s, and in France.

  1. Pretty! Very cute looking – I am very much into the princessy look, but I admit this isn’t quite for me. Too purple, not pink enough! It does look very nice with you, though. You’re becoming a veritable trove of nail polish swatches. =D
    I must point out, though: “Orly Nail Lacquer retails for US$8.50 and is 0.6 US fl oz / 18 mL. Zoya nail polishes are free of toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor, and are made in the USA.” Think you meant Orly nail polishes, not Zoya? =D
