NARS Orgasm polish

Orgasm is based on NARS's top selling blush of the same name. As the blush, it is a pinky peach base with golden shimmer. I've been lemming this FOREVER and when a Sephora opened here I bought this first thing.

 Now, while researching, I usually came across negative reviews. The formula was bad, streaky, the color dried orange, didn't look the same as in the bottle, etc.
I chose to disregard these, I thought "I can make it work. It'll good on my skin tone. It CAN'T look badly on me". With these desperate hopes of making it work, I purchased it and stared at the bottle. It's the pink and the shimmer is very subtle. I wish it came out that way on the nails. When it dries (IF it ever dries) it does become flat orange... The shimmer comes through too much and kills the peachy pink, turning everything orange. That and it took about 3 coats to get the opacity you see here (not very opaque) and IT DID NOT DRY. It stayed squishy even under a coat of Seche Vite, which has never failed me. A day later and it's still getting nicks and scrapes. For 25 Canadian collars, this is a HUGE fail. 
This...has pretty much scared me away from most HE polishes. I keep hearing about Chanel stuck-upness in terms of customer service and the runny formula...keep hearing about NARS being streaky and runny. 
I found that if I stick to cheaper options, like WnW the results are great. The highest I'm willing to pay for a polish would probably be 12$ for OPI. Lesson learned...
