When Jeff Pink founded ORLY in 1975 (named for his wife), he was motivated by a simple idea: to innovate natural nail care. By creating leading-edge products and tools designed not only to beautify, but to respond to the needs of salon professionals, Jeff Pink redefined nail care and nail fashion.
For over 33 years, in over 66 countries, ORLY nail care products have been the manicurist’s choice for nail strength, adhesion, wearability, dry time and shine.
THE ORIGINAL FRENCH MANICURE: Jeff Pink created this versatile look to complement Hollywood starlets' entire onset wardrobe. This 'natural nail look' was then introduced on the fashion runways of Paris, where it became an instant classic. From that point on, this iconic look became known as “The French Manicure”.
Today, the French Manicure prevails as the ultimate in nail chic, and is one of the top-selling nail looks worldwide!
