I picked up a bottle of Steel Grey and thought it would be a really awkward color on me, but it turned out to be my go to practical color for work and more conservative events. Honestly, Steel Grey is more of a plum then any sort of grey.
The brush is flat and fans out nicely, which really helps to quickly cover nails and to allow for even application. The polish goes on smooth and covers evenly with two coats.
I think the wear is average but with a good BC and TC then you should be fine with at least a weeks worth of wear.
I got this nail polish in Marine Blue. I LOVE it! Easy to apply and stays on for a long time
I have Steel Gray (tried it after Commander in Chic by Sally Hansen-that one chipped WAY too soon.) and Purple Rain. Love them both. I WILL be buying more. With a top coat I have easily gotten 5-6 days out of these. And that's a record for me! Great polishes, all around!
I have this in quite a few shades but my most recent purchase is Sunset Orange - at 2 coats it still has a bit of a bright coral color but I've got 3 coats and WOO it is like traffic cone orange! I love it. Also, the brush is the best I've found in drug store nail polish.
During a quick Target run, I picked up French Lingerie on a whim. I've been lusting after a good light, baby pink polish similar to Essie's Fiji, and it looked similar in the bottle, but French Lingerie is almost completely white...not what I was looking for. Since it's winter my hands are also a lot paler and it does not look good, maybe the color would be more flattering with a tan....also a little streaky and required a good three coats to get it opaque. Cute packaging, not worth it though (at least in this color!)
I purchased this brand in "Sunset Orange". Its a really lovely orangey-red. The color is just beautiful and glossy!
Update: I now own Stilletto Red, Marine Blue (which I gave to my younger sister), Cherry Fashion, and my favorite, "Desert Rose". I love each shade, but they do tend to crack at the tips after 3 days. I've just learned a new way to combat this: vinegar. Apparently you swipe each nail before you apply the color and it truly will last up to a week. Just thought I'd share.
Love these brushes, this is inexpensive polish that goes on like buttah! love em! I have purple rain (vamp-like) and midnight blue (dark, dark blue) and they're gorg! I think I may just go buy another right now ;)
Have this in purple rain, it's a very dark purple, looks alot like opi-lincoln park after dark(one of my favs). This is better, alittle thicker formula, 1st coat goes on streaky, 2nd coat covers all that. I love this color and quality!!! Base coat, 2 coats of polish, top coat.
I bought this in "Desert Rose" which is a really pretty peachy-nude. It looks great with whatever outfit you are wearing.
The brush is a flat brush that goes on really smooth. I makes the application so easy and absolutely fool-proof.
Staying power was good. The nailpolish does thicken up after several usages.
Would repurchase again.
Absolutely adore these! I have quite a few now (along the lines of 6/7 and still building) because of the brushes! I love how it's wide and after two sweeps I usually will be able to cover my nails evenly. The colors selection are great, my two current favorites are steel grey and posh pink, I'm always raving about it to my friends and I stock up whenever walgreens have there 50% off Rimmel products, a girl can never have too much nail polish.
