How Does Orly’s Breathable Nail Polish Work? Here's What You Should Know

Manicures are great, until they're not. Constantly painting your nails a new color can suffocate and dry them out, but that's all about to change. Orly created a breathable nail polish that's actually healthy for your nails, according to InStyle. How does a breathable nail polish work, you ask? It's so simple that you'll wonder why it's never been done before.

Between gel, normal, and long-wearing polish shades, there aren't a lot of heathy options for your nails. That's why Orly's new formula is so great. Instead of suffocating and drying out your nails, it actually allows them to breath right through the color. How? Well, according to the Orly site, it's known as "advanced oxygen technology" and it works the same way that contact lenses do.

To make it short and sweet, oxygen and hydration can get to the nail through the polish. That means that your nails can be healthy and colorful all at the same time. There's even a base and top coat built right in, so all you need is two layers of polish to get a full, professional level treatment. Oh and according to the site it's packed with argan oil, pro vitamin b5, and vitamin c too. It doesn't get much better than this!
