Orly introduces Epix, a long-lasting line of nail polish developed to deliver a two-step manicure that can last more than a week. Orly Epix features a flexible, chip-resistant formula that remains elastic to flex with the nail for a smudge-proof manicure. Epix polish bottles include a patented Gripper Cap that allows for easy opening and have a new 600-bristle count brush with a custom shape designed to fit the cuticle for precise application. Use Epix Flexible Color and Flexible Sealcoat together to create durable, scratch-resistant, high-shine nails that dry in eight minutes.

1. Begin by performing a dry manicure. File, shape, push back cuticles, nip, buff, and brush off any residue on the nails. Clean the nail surface with 99% isopropyl alcohol.

2. Apply an even coat of Epix Flexible Color to all ten nails.

3. Apply a second coat for full coverage.

4. Apply one coat of Flexible Sealcoat to lock in the color. Tip: For extended wear, reapply sealcoat after three days.
