Orly Frenemy Nail Lacquer Review, Swatches, Before & After Photos

by Tavia

Hello lovelies!

Orly Frenemy nail lacquer is one of the six new limited edition shades from Orly Infamous Holiday 2015 Collection (info, photos). When I saw the entire collection up close at Romexpo Beauty Hair 2015 Edition (video) I found Orly Frenemy to be right up my alley and quite a special, elegant and glamorous shade.

Orly Frenemy Nail Polish (56.00 Lei for 18 ml / .6 fl oz) is dark gray jelly with silver, turquoise and pink glitter particles.  The consistency is a light jelly which delivers a sheer color coverage in one coat. To achieve a more intense color coverage you’ll need to lay up to 3 coats but even then you won’t get a fully opaque coverage.

The application went well without streaking or bubbling but because it its still a jelly formula it tented to pull a little bit along at the edges of the nails. Orly Frenemy is one of those nail polish colors that will definitely not go unnoticed so if you are looking for an elegant manicure with a touch of glamour this should be a good option.

I love wearing dark nails so Orly Frenemy was instantly my favorite shade from the entire Orly Infamous Holiday 2015 Collection. From the moment I saw it I knew I had to have it and wear it throughout this season.

I had applied 3 coats and got a semi-full coverage while for a more intense luscious finish I added a thin coat of Essenge Gel Like Top Coat. I had 5 days wear with this formula and from what you can also see in the photos, the formula is not quite long lasting as I had visible tip wear and slightly chipped on the edges. The color was still intense and the finish was shiny.
