Good morning, everyone. Any news or gossip?
Today I have a rather confusing polish for you. Orly Bon Bon. I’d seen this on a few blogs and really rather liked the shade, and on various websites the bottle shot looks like a murky greyed out lavender. Just my kind of colour. In fact, we painted our bathroom walls something very similar.
However, I’m really sorry to say that Bon Bon just didn’t work for me. I found it to be super watery and runny, which is unusual for Orly as their polishes are normally of amazing quality. But I struggled here. What I was hoping would be a lovely thick, opaque creme was a runny, unpigmented goop. It took about 6 coats to effectively cover my nail, and then it was really thick so I had to turn to the old stalwart, Seche Vite, to sort it out and get it dry this side of Christmas.
This makes me sad. The colour is actually very pretty. Although you can see at the tips that it wore away really fast, mainly due to the thick application of Seche Vite. It didn’t shrink back from the tips like often occurs with Seche, but more that it just faded off and dissolved, leaving the tip of my nail exposed. Really odd. I know that Seche is full of nasties and that Orly is proudly Big-3 free so maybe that is why, that the recipes were just not compatible, but who knows?
Either which way, it saddens me to post this review as I am a big fan of Orly polishes but for some reason Bon Bon just falls short of their usual quality. Maybe I have an off bottle? Can anyone confirm?
