Orly Cherry Bomb



This is okay to use and okay to apply. The formula is quite thick but easy enough to work with. Make sure you paint with thin coats for a good finish. Drying time is fairly quick (about 1.5 minutes for a coat). It is a really pretty red and it lasted well. But I have a few words of warning: THIS STAINS REALLY BAD. I had my normal base coat on and I got really bad staining :-| As I never have naked nails, this doesn't bother me, but it might be an issue for you.

Rating
Easy to use = 7/10
Application = 7/10
Drying time = 8/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2
Finish = almost metallic like
Removal = easy with foil method - but does STAIN
Overall = 7/10
Purchased from = Fragrance Direct online

My Personal Rating = 7/10 :-)

  1. The shade of red is very eyecatching and of the brighter ones, I like it a lot. Sorry to hear about staining though, I hate when it happens. Maybe with more coats of a top coat it will be better? Anyways, sexy shade :)

    1. It's such a gorgeous shade of red! I know that's the only downside, if it hadn't been for that I'd have probably given it 8/10! Sexy indeed :-)

    1. That's a good policy. I guess since I paint my nails most days it doesn't really bother me that much - but still it shouldn't happen :-|

  4. I often don't wear base coat at all so I can imagine how it would stain my nails then :D... But the color is nice! ;)

    1. Best to wear a double base coat with this I think! Yeah I can imagine very red nails once you've removed it :-O

      It is a lovely colour! :-)

  6. I like this nuance of red! However I hate staining, it ruins many nail art types (or mainly like french manicures) so I try being careful. :P

    1. Yeah staining is just annoying and wrong. Especially if it's a lovely polish! Aftering seeing what my nails were like after this, a french would look awful! :-)

  10. Beautiful polish and it looks so great on you - it reminds me of candy wrapper, no? I am always miffed if a polish stains - I wonder why, I wear polish anyhow.... <3

    1. Thanks Christine! WOW you are so right, it really does look like a candy wrapper :-D It doesn't really bother me too much but it's still ugly. I wear so much nail polish anyway, my naked nails are nothing special to look at! ;-)

  11. Oh no! staining polishes are the worse in my book! I should really compilate a list of staining polishes and share it in my blog! that would be nice if others want to know which polishes stain...

    1. They really are no ideal! That is such a good idea! I could give you a list of a few anyway :-) It would be great to share with other for sure :-)

  12. A color has to be super special for me to put up with staining, and while this one's really pretty, I'd have to pass. I have that one song in my head now, though-- I'm your ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb! lol.

    1. Exactly! It does have to be something extra special indeed. Haha I had it in my head for a good few days after this! :-D

  13. Pity for stains 'cause it's a super bright and very intriguing red this one!
    I have my nails always painted too, however it's annoying when they stain :/

  14. this colour is fantastic, looks amazing on your nails, but stains are really annoying I know (maybe two layers of base coat could give a better protection?)
