Product Review and NOTD - ORLY What’s the Password?

ORLY’s limited edition winter collection of nail polishes, Secret Society features a rich palette of bold and seductive tones, in a variety of finishes - from shimmers to a crème and glitters, radiating glamour and sophistication. Here are my thoughts on the *ORLY What’s the Password?


What They Say:
"All ORLY colours are 4 free – free from DBP, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Tolulene. Each ORLY nail lacquer bottle delivers a vibrant, chip resistant formula while the brush glides smoothly on nails without clumping or streaking for maximum impact and colour density."

RRP: $18.95 – Available from ORLY Online and select pharmacies and beauty salons.

What I Say:
The Secret Society limited edition collection includes six gorgeous shades, ranging from midnight blue, red, charcoal, and taupe. Here I am trialling ORLY What’s the Password?

As I have mentioned numerous times now, I really love ORLY nail polishes, and the fact that they are ‘4-free’, and that they are so easy to apply streak-free and they dry so fast too. I am not the greatest at applying nail polish, and the second after I’ve finished applying a coat, I’ve usually forgotten about it, and start doing something, smearing it!!

The black lid/handle of the nail polish is a ribbed rubber finish stopping it from sliding and it sits nicely in the hand while you paint your nails. The actual brush is good quality, and is wide so just three strokes is more than sufficient to cover the nail with polish.

What’s the Password? Is a gorgeous burnt orange with golden shimmer – perfectly matching the winter fashion, but it will look just as great in summer with tanned hands and feet!

When I first applied the polish, it applied very thinly, and I expected that at least three coats would be needed, but it turned out that two coats were more than sufficient to get a full coverage.

As with other ORLY nail polishes, when I use a top coat as well, I can wear What’s the Password? For about 4 days wear before it starts to wear and chip at the edges. But that is using my hands  lot, and washing my hands gazillions of times during the day having two large two dogs living inside, and now also having a newborn and changing nappies up to a dozen times a day!

Removing nail polish with glitter particles is usually a little tricky, and What’s the Password? is no different. Removing the actual polish is easy, but my hands and nails are left with small shimmer particles all over, and it takes an extra turn with the nail polish remover to get rid of these.

What’s the Password? Is such a unique and warm colour, and unlike anything I already have, and while I am not usually a big fan of glittery polishes, What’s the Password? is shimmery, yet it still very elegant and tasteful.

What about you, what do you think of What’s the Password? What colours have you been wearing on your nails during winter? And do you like glittery nail polishes?
