ORLY MatteFX Pink Flakie Topcoat | Manicure Monday

I’m finally starting my Manicure Monday’s again, for good this time. I’ve made sure that I’m well ahead of myself so you won’t go without. I have so many new polishes to try and new ranges to share with you. I’m genuinely excited. This week’s focus is on the ORLY MatteFX polishes. I picked this one up in Pink Flakie in my local TKMaxx store and couldn’t wait to try it.

ORLY MatteFX Pink Flakie

The ORLY MatteFX polishes are a topcoat to give a matte finish to any nail art look. They come in a few different colours including Pink, Green and Clear. I used Nails Inc Shoreditch as my base colour, the first coat of this is always quite transparent but the second coat gives it this vibrant fuchsia pink colour, it’s one of my go-to summer polishes and has been for years.

After my two coats of Shoreditch had dried it was time for a quick coat of the ORLY MatteFX topcoat, I didn’t need to use much and it dried quickly, I do find that matte polishes tend to dry quicker. I found that once the topcoat had dried, some nails were more matte than others but I loved the subtle effect of the Pink Flakie.

I’m looking forward to trying this one again over some other colours/brands and seeing the finish it creates. I’m sure the ORLY MatteFX topcoat has helped my polish stay for longer too as I’ve been wearing it days now.

Have you tried any ORLY MatteFX polishes? What did you think?

Until next time,

    Your nails always look so amazing. Do you use oil or anything on them? Mine are so weak and brittle 🙁 xx

      Thank you lovely. Orly Tough Cookie helps and I used a No7 Nail and Cuticle Cream and always try and use some sort of base and top coat when painting my nails. They’re not always strong though, and if they break, they really break!

    Thats a great colour – makes me feel like summer for sure 🙂 I have the same question at Jessie actually – is there anything you do to strengthen your nails ? They look so nice… and mine aren’t all at!

      Thank you Vanessa! I use Orly Tough Cookie which is my go-to nail strengthener and I’m always trying different creams. They’re not always nice and strong though.

    I love your nails… I wish I could have nails like that… But I bite them, so that’s impossible …

    No but I’ll ask my salon for them the next time I get my nails done! The colours are so pretty!

    Beautiful nails! The color’s amazing, even though I’m more into nude nail polish. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    I’m glad this worked so well for a topcoat. Your nails look great and I love that color.

    Fab post lovely, this colour looks so stunning, I really need to try more from Orly as I’ve only tried one or two polishes years ago.

    What a fun color! Never tried this MatteFX, but I feel like trying now!

    They look very pretty, I really like the color. I might choose it next time I go to get my nails due, which will be in a few days. Still deciding on the color 🙂

    I really love Orly as a polish brand. I love the color that you chose too

    Very beautiful color and your nails are impressive! I usually go for nude colors on every day basis, I find it easier to maintain, but I love this color. I don’t know if I can find this brand where I live, but I will look for it. Thank you!

    As I have seen previously you always make a great choice for color. You never disappoint with your choices, absolutely looks fabolous.

    Your nails look awesome! This reminds me that I need a good manicure soon!

    Ooooo. This is fun! I’m obsessed with nail color. Haven’t tried many of the Orly products…only the sticky topcoat. I will definitely be trying this next time I stop at my local drugstore! 🙂
