Orly Rock-It from the Mineral FX Collection is like the lady in red who heats up the dance floor as she kicks up her heels and does the salsa!
Better get the extinguisher and the hot greased-up fire fighters from those calendars handy because your nails will be on fire with this one! Hot damn!
Although I don’t wear red nail polish as often as other colours, when I do reach for one, it’s either a bright creme or something blingtastic like this magenta-leaning red.
Do you remember what the last red nail polish you wore was?

Orly Rock-It Review
In the bottle, Rock-It by Orly looks crazy amazing because you can see red, magenta, and orange. I was really hoping for the orange to translate onto the nails, but unfortunately, that duochrome effect was very weak. Despite that hang-up, what does come through comes through like a sledgehammer!
If I looked at my nails at a particular angle under artificial light, then I could see the orange come through, but most times, the orange takes a back seat. (What you see in all of my above photos are what I saw 95% of the time.)
What a sexy colour – it’s the most vivid type of red that reminds me of fire…well, if fire was magenta. But I mean that it’s just full of life. If you’re tired of colours that fall flat, put this on – it’s the exact opposite!
This is a super glittery polish that is not gritty like a typical glitter polish. And there’s a very subtle duochrome as I mentioned before. If you’re looking for a major colour shift, this polish won’t hit the spot.
The finish is still spectacular, though because it catches the light all the time and sparkles on your nails. It’s fun to look at, and when I think of the kind of energy drink that Santa and the Elves must drink during the holiday season, this is what I imagine it looks like. (P.S. Never drink your nail polish even if you did see a woman on My Strange Addiction doing it! (Warning: That clip contains graphic content.)
Application & Formula
As I’ve come to expect from Orly nail polishes, Rock-It applied evenly, smoothly, and easily. I had no issue applying it whatsoever. The brush and the rubberized handle made it a cinch to apply and control.
Final Verdict: 9/10
If you want to wear a sexy red, this is an excellent choice because not only is the formula a joy to work with, but the colour is so lively, you’d better be careful not to get distracted by it while walking or driving.
Did you get any colours from the Orly Mineral FX Collection? Was it just me, or did Rock-It have a very weak duochrome? Do you have a favourite Orly polish?
