Orly Flare Nail Lacquer

Orly Flare Nail Lacquer ($8.50 for 0.60 fl. oz.) is a frosted, metallic gold with a strong yellow undertone. Chanel Gold Fingers has flecks of sparkle but is similar in color. SpaRitual Solstice is darker, more orange-gold. SpaRitual Golden Gleam is more orange, metallic.

It was mostly opaque after two coats, but it did apply unevenly and would drag if you didn’t wait for the first coat to dry entirely. The consistency was a little thick, and it didn’t level out fully. I’m usually impressed by Orly, but Flare was somewhat disappointing. I normally get a week of wear with very minor tip wear with Orly’s polish.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I would have to disagree with that. Glitz & Glamour is more intense and not as sheer. The colour is slightly different too. Can’t really describe the colour difference but I have both and I can tell they are not the same. Similar nonetheless. I do like texture and colour of Glitz & Glamour better.

The opacity doesn’t look too bad for just 2 coats to me, but after getting OPI Goldeneye my gold foil polish needs are pretty much fulfilled so I don’t need this.

I really prefer Goldeneye from OPI, much more intense. I thought I would buy from the Fired Up Collection but I didn’t. I found many beautiful OPI nail polishes ( Germany, James Bond Collection ) and I got my 2 first Deborah Lippmann ( Mermaid’s Dream and Across the Universe ) so great !
