Orly Color Pass Summer 2019 - Wrap Artist Nails Moon Decals 1

Wrap Artist Nails Moon Decals – Retail Value $5

I have actually purchased decals from Wrap Artist Nails in the past, and I am happy to see a familiar, quality brand as an extra item in the summer box. These metallic gold (you will receive either gold or silver) decals work a lot like temporary tattoos in that you cut out the shape, soak them in water, and then transfer to your nail. Seal with a top coat and you are good to go!

Here is what they looked like on top of It’s Brittney, Beach.

Orly Bonder, Full-Size! Retail Value $11

If you have oily nail beds or tend to have polish lift off of your nails, this base coat may be able to solve your (nail-related) problems! I have used this before, and I am happy with how it helps my nail polish to last.

Here is the full set! Isn’t it gorgeous? One thing to note—the following photos were taken with no top coat, and all of the bottles are full-size. Now let’s dive in!

Orly Color Pass Summer 2019 - Muy Caliente 1 Orly Color Pass Summer 2019 - Muy Caliente 2

Muy Caliente – Retail Value $9.50

This is a BRIGHT red-orange crème polish that had the most perfect formula- I only used one coat for full coverage in the photo above, and the red didn’t stain my cuticles when I removed it.

Rosé All Day – Retail Value $9.50

This is a dusty mauve crème polish to me, and I don’t really get rose vibes as the name suggests. This is a great work-appropriate neutral shade, though, and the formula was easy to work with.

Warm It Up – Retail Value $9.50

This is a glitter topper that has peach and white hexagonal glitters of various sizes suspended in a clear base. Sometimes chunky glitters like these can be hard to get good glitter placement on your nails, but I was happy I didn’t have to dig around the bottle to get the glitters.

On Your Wavelength – Retail Value $9.50

This is a milky sky blue polish that is a bit too sheer to really be considered a crème. I think it leans more white than blue, and creamy sheer polishes like these aren’t my favorite formulas because it can take some work to get even coverage.

It’s Brittney, Beach – Retail Value $9.50

This is a bright cobalt blue crème polish, and I love how vivid it is on my nail- it isn’t neon, but it is still attention-getting. This only took two coats for full opacity, and I wore it for a week with only minimal tip wear.

What’s The Big Teal – Retail Value $9.50

This glitter topper has teal and white glitters suspended in a clear base. Along with smaller hexagons, this also has triangles and large hexagons, but I definitely felt like I had to dig around the bottle to get good placement of glitter on my nail. I do love how it looks on It’s Brittney, Beach, though!

The Verdict: I thought this was another fun collection from Orly! My favorites are definitely It’s Brittney, Beach and Muy Caliente, and I thought it was fun that they included the two glitter toppers in this collection. Getting the Wrap Artist Nails nail decals felt like a real treat, too. Orly is an established brand that has really nailed their formulas down, and I love that all of their polishes are vegan, cruelty-free, and 12-free. I know it can be hard to swallow the sticker shock of an annual subscription up front, but you really will get a year’s worth of quality and fun nail polishes. This month’s total value is $73. Considering the quarterly cost of the box is $29.75, finding the whole collection for cheaper than the Color Pass price will be difficult. If you love nail polish, I really suggest giving this box a shot.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! If you sign up for the ORLY Color Pass, your first collection will be the Summer box.

Value Breakdown: At $29.75 for this box, here’s what you are paying approximately per item:

  • Wrap Artist Nails: $2.04
  • Bonder:  $4.48
  • Each Polish: $3.87 (for a total value of $23.23)

  1. My nail beds and cuticles used to look like that too when I wore acrylics. Specially after the first week that they had been done. Basically I felt like unless I could afford to get them done every 10 days, it wouldn’t look healthy.

    It was hard to remove them because my nails under the acrylics were paper thin and weak. But with patience I was able to grown my natural heathy nails back.

    I am a huge fan of all of Jessica’s reviews though! She is detailed and excited about the products she loves. No need for mean comments. We should focus on the nail polishes she is reviewing.

    We need more kindness in this world.

  2. Awesome review! Love the variety of shades and the bonuses! Your nails look fab too!

  3. Mine get like that as well, and painting and removing just makes it worse for me. I always comment on how nice Liz’s nails look, even after all the swatching she does. She said she uses a remover she discovered from birchbox called EXO that is really gentle. I’m just trying to lather myself in hand cream and cuticle oil for the time being – and no picking, that’s a hard one 🙂

  4. I have oily nails, and the binder base is okay, but still only gives me two days of wear for polishes. It works great on my toes, though. I like Orly formulas, but I would rather buy the limited edition Zoya boxes with 12 polishes plus extras and know what I am getting for $70. It is more than $119 for the 24 bottles of Orly, but you can choose. Just a thought. This box has great colors, tho, and I would buy it as a stand alone.

  5. Do you have to purchase the color pass or can you get individual boxes? Thank you! I love your reviews by the way!

  6. Muy Caliente looks like a very unique shade!

  7. Wow. I love the Brittney. Glitter toppers look great as well.
