Orly Explosion of Fun

I think it's time I break out the holiday polishes because there isn't much time left! The end of the year is closing on us quickly. Today, I have one of the Orly Sparkle polishes to share with you.

Explosion of Fun over OPI Pamplona Purple
Explosion of Fun is a fuchsia glitter, holo glitter, and blue/purple shimmer in a clear base.

Color: This is a great nail polish color wise. I love the combination of glitter and the shimmer, but outside of color this really fails for me.

Formula: This formula is a mess. The bottle of this is stunning, but I was sorely disappointed on how this looks on the nail. This is sheer, it doesn't build up well at all. The formula was thick, and already starting to separate in the bottle.

Price: I found this at Ulta in the $7-$8 range.

Overall: This was a  huge disappointment for me. Explosion of Fun is so beautiful in the bottle. This really should of been an opaque glitter. The formula is a mess and leaves a lot to be desired. I feel like I was deceived by this beautiful bottle of polish. Yes, you can layer it, like I did, but it's not my favorite look.. I think you can pass on this one, don't be fooled by a pretty face!

My Rating: 2 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Tuesday!


  1. I had such a different experience! I love EoF! I layered it over black which really made the purple pop. Sorry to hear you didn't like it!

  2. Bummer! Like you said this looks stunning and would be such a fun glitzy addition to any holiday outfit.

  3. Pretty nonetheless!!

  4. It does look gorgeous but bummer to hear the formula was terrible. I guess it would be better as a layering polish then.
