This is a flexible, non-damaging 2-step manicure that wears like a gel but removes like a polish. Similar to Revlon Nail Envy and CND Vinylux, this nail polish requires a particular finishing seal coat. Step 2 of the application process is done with the Flexible Sealcoat.
24 shades: City Of Angels, Sunset Strip, Paparazzi, LA Dreamin’, Starlet, Fashion Forward, Stadium Way, Heart of LA, Endless Summers, Best Dressed, Celebrity Gossip, Pop Culture, Speakeasy, Venice, Surfer Girl, Art Walks, LA Selfie, Infamous, Who You Know, On The List, Rooftop Lounge, Cali Swag, The Boulevard, LAX.
Step 1 – Apply two even coats of the Quo by Orly Color Amp’d Flexible Color, which is available in 24 unique shades, to buffed and cleaned nails.
Step 2 – Finish with 1 coat of the Quo by Orly Color Amp’d Flexible Sealcoat to seal in colour and shine. Sealcoat will set in less than 8 minutes. Smudges will continue to self-repair until the Flexible Colour is fully dry.
Tip: For extended wear, reapply Sealcoat after 3 days. To remove, use regular nail polish remover.
I received three shades for testing purposes: Best Dressed, Heart of LA, and Speakeasy.
Quo by Orly Color Amp’d Flexible Manicure
My favourite of the three was Best Dressed. It’s an awesome metallic/chrome finish silver that only required 2 coats for full opacity. It evened out well, was easy to apply and definitely drew attention.
My least favourite of the bunch was Heart of LA. I actually applied 3 coats and was not expecting it to be a jelly finish. I’m somewhat bias against jelly finishes because I do not like being able to see through the nail polish.
Lastly, we have Speakeasy, which is a very pretty nude. Despite my slightly sloppy application (my apologies for that) this was actually easy to apply and went on opaque with three coats.
A couple of note worthy points:
- The brush applicator is a significant improvement to the regular Quo by Orly nail polish range which boasts jagged bristles.
- The Flexible Sealcoat has a strong scent that I didn’t find pleasant, but it disappears hours after the initial application.
The Quo by Orly Color Amp’d Flexible Color and Quo by Orly Color Amp’d Flexible Sealcoat are exclusively available at Shoppers Drug Mart for $10.99 (Pharmaprix in Quebec). There are also limited edition gift set containing one of the Flexible Colors plus the Flexible Seal coat for $14.99.
