204: ORLY instant artist review

We were looking at buying a bottle of ORLY Instant Artist nail polish online & were trying to research it before buying. It was SUPER confusing because it seems that "instant artist" refers to a full set of nail art accessories that ORLY sells, so it was tough to figure out what this product was.

Basically, it's a nail polish with a striper brush instead of a regular applicator, so it's perfect for super-detailed drawing.


Sam started with a couple coats of ORLY cosmic girl




the striper brush is long & thin so it's easy to draw thin stripes-- but it's also really sensitive to shaky hands. I would compare it to a liquid liner brush.


I wanted to try out a complex design so I used this AA tribal printed dress as inspiration


It was pretty easy to control straight lines & dots, but curved lines were a bit more difficult. The nail polish is nice and opaque though so there's no need to go over designs twice.


basically, I just made a few stripes & then filled each row in with geometric patterns :)




I think the amount of detail you can achieve is awesome & so far I really like the instant artist polish... I'm thinking about getting a black one as well!

The same effect could be achieved if you bought a striper brush to use with all of your nail polishes, but this packaging makes cleanups easy. cool right?
