On Monday, May 4th, Orly hosted a celebration of the brand's 40 years in the beauty industry at Perch's rooftop lounge in Downtown Los Angeles. Guests sipped cocktails and enjoyed a decadent meal as surprise guests Deborah Carver (founder, Creative Age Publications), Jack Sperling (Jeff Pink's mentor) and Leslie Stevens (co-founder, LaForce + Stevens PR) toasted Orly founder and industry legend Jeff Pink on his four decades of innovation and success.

Known for crafting and popularizing what is arguably the most popular manicure of all time, the French manicure, Pink was honored by LA mayor Eric Garcetti, who stopped by at the end of the night to present Pink with a certificate of congratulations from the city of Los Angeles.

One last surprise topped off the night, and it was by far the most delicious: a cake in the shape of Orly's beloved EPIX bottle!
