I bought 5 polishes on the UD site when they were on a blowout sale for $5 each. OPI is the best nailpolish out there but I figured I'd try it. This crap needs like 5-7 coats for it to even looks thick. It looks like it's 50% polish with 50% water. It's super thin in the bottle, barely shows and I bught all dark colors. A waste of $5 AND it chips- it's good for nothing.
$9.50 is quite a bit to spend on nail polish. God bless eBay! This color is a bit too sheer for my liking. I had to apply several coats *like at least 10* in order to get the color I wanted. However, this KICKS ASS as a top coat over black nail polish. KICKS ASS I TELL YOU!!!
This have incredible fine shimmer particles that are just gorgeous when you stare at it, but this chips horribly on me. Also, the color is a tad too bright for me- a fruity punch color. I like it on my toes, but on my nails it's too garish. i will not repurchase.
This is the ultimate pink nail polish! It's a very sparkly vivid shade (after about 3 coats) that seems to sparkle a different color depending on the lighting. Fluorescent lights seem to give it a slightly green sparkle, but in the sunlight it is a golden sparkle. No problems with paint chipping here. It is an absolutely beautiful summery color.
I was hoping this would be a cheaper version of Chanel's Electric nail polish (been totally lemming this, but don't want to spend the money). In the bottle is is a very bright, vibrant pink-coral-orange-gold with a ton of multi-prismatic glitter. Absolutely gorgeous. In reality, the polish is INCREDIBLY sheer. One coat was a candy colored pink with a bit of shimmer. It took 5 coats to get a decent opaque finish, but I still have yet to achieve that coral-pink-orange color in the bottle. I feel no need to repurchase this color. Seems to have decent lasting power - been 24 hours with no top coat and no chipping.
I can't decide if this polish is red, pink, orange, or coral. I suppose it's all of them, and infused with tons of glitter, shimmer, and shine. IMO, this is the ultimate summer nailpolish, even though I don't even like nailpolish. This does require many coats to look as bright as it does in the bottle, but the color and sparkle are worth it. I like this on my toes especially. :)
This is a nail polish twin of ID xxx shine. The color looks basically the same. If you like ID and want to have it in a set, this is a good choice. However, this color(especially on the nails) can be too playful. I can't think of anyone wearing it in a conservative work place. It is not streaky AT ALL and lasts a while. By the way, one rainy day I got so bored that I painted a matte red polish on top(one coat), and then my nails looked opaque red, but under some lightings they still flashed some shimmers and that was pretty:)
I tried it over a red polish and it looked devine!!
Ack.. this looked *odd* on me. I have yellow-toned skin and it just didn't suit me at all. I think this would look lovely on cool-toned skins - it's a beautiful sheer red with holographic shimmer in it.
This is a pretty semi-sheer light/medium pink with a goldish/coral irridescence.
