Orly It's Not Rocket Science

Oh really, Orly? It's not rocket science? That's kind of a funny claim considering that THIS POLISH LOOKS LIKE BABY DOO-DOO.

Orly It's Not Rocket Science. Sure, it looks nice in the bottle, but on the nail...

WTF? I could tell it was fugly as soon as I did the first coat, so I only left it alone as an accent finger. On all my other fingers, I did one coat of Finger Paints Scenery Greenery and then another coat of It's Not Rocket Science. The accent finger has 3 coats. (2 would have sufficed for opacity but I was hoping a 3rd might make it less ugly. I hoped in vain)

The sad part is, it looks exactly like it does in the bottle on all my other nails.

But OMG. Have you ever seen a more baby barf-like color?


Anyway. The formula was good but ohgod the colorrr. I love the way it looks over the dark green but I'm so sad that it looks absolutely nothing like the bottle color.

Verdict: Someone get me a diaper.


  1. You do not lie-this is one horrifying, crap color! I hope you didn't spend too much on this!

  2. I have officially read your whole blog-I have to say I love it!!

  3. I'm on the fence about it, because I like the way it looks layered but ughhh. And thank you! That's so flattering!

  4. Fugly greens are not for everyone. :)

  5. LOL thats hillarious.... I was going to pick this baby up a few weeks ago, but decided not to, I was regreting it, but maybe it was a good choice! Is a very different color though LOL... BTW thank you so much for your help with the tabs, it worked perfect :)

  6. So the yellow one on your ring finger is the color that looks like baby barf?

  7. @KarenD: Yeah, I know some people like them, but this and orange are the colors I really cannot make myself like.

    @Polish Amor: Yeah, pretty sure I'm leaning towards tossing this one. And you're welcome with the tabs!

    @Meg: Yes.

  8. haha this kind of sucks, you're right. I wonder who actually goes around wearing barf green nail polish -- sparkly too! :P

  9. Haha, I love your color descriptions, they're always so entertaining to read. :D

  10. I work as a cashier! I respect your out look on the polish and all! but i only think the 1st coat looks like baby poo ... but 3coats makes it perfect! customers give me endless comments! when different lighting hits ur nails the color is amazing .... So I think it's worth getting bc alot of people liked it ... Dare to be different ;) I collect polishand this is maybe 1 of my fav!
