I recently bought my first Chi Chi nail polish in the shade Glamourville, which is a pastel purple shade. My original plan was to buy the very similar shade of this purple from O.P.I named you're being such a budapest, alas i am financially crippled and had to buy this one instead. The colour looks great with my pinky pale skin because of the blueish-pinkish undertone, which you can actually see when the bottle hasn't been shaken in a while and that weird liquid is at the top. Anyway the quality of the polish itself is pretty good considering price and what not. Two-three layers are needed to make it opaque but i usually only need two. It doesnt take forever to dry like some formulas but it does take a bit, though i use Revlon quick dry top coat on top. The formula is thin but not watery. I would definitely recommend this to people with pale skin but i don't know how it would look on people with yellow undertones.

I randomly pick up a Chi Chi polish every now and again but it's not a 'go to' nail brand for me. In saying that though, I've never been disappointed by a Chi Chi polish. They are so ridiculously cheap and come in so many shades and styles (glitter, shimmers, shatters etc).
.
My favourite shade at the moment is Hopelessly Devoted which is a medium-deep pink that is so opaque you can easily get away with one coat. As for staying power, I can't comment too much because I always wear them with an Essie base coat and Sally Hansen Insta Dri which seems to keep my polish on for a minimum 4 days, no matter the brand.

I love Chi Chi nail polishes - they're the best of their kind for the price. I think they range from 5-$10 dollars a bottle depending on which size you get, which is actually really good when you're living in a country that has a renowned over-priced cosmetic industry. They come in such an extensive range of colours varying from brights to neutral hues and are of such good quality. I really like the applicator brush and how the colour stays on your nails for so long! Best cheapy nail polish ever.

I've tried many polishes and I can safely say that Chi Chi is one of the best in terms of quality and colour selection.

I have used their pale pink shade for a long time because it looks like an expensive French manicure and it lasts many days.

Also, I recently bought a purple shade called "Mile High Club" which is a Jacaranda shade for something like $2 (Australian). I love this summery modern colour.

I find that expensive brands such as OPI are overrated, so having a good cheap alternatice brand like Chi Chi is great.

I own a few of these polishes and find that if I use a good base and top coat, they last at least 3-5 days. Fast drying time too. All the colours I own, even the paler shades, only require 2 coats to be opaque which is excellent. They are cheap in comparison to OPI, Essie etc. in Australia which are ridiculously over priced. I would definitely recommend trying Chi Chi. Plus they have such a great selection of colours!!

I am currently wearing the colour "Merman" and am absolutely loving it!! The colour is a bright shimmery turquoise... kind of like a mermaids tail, hence the name Merman.

Pretty nail polishes ! The only thing I'd have to say is that you'll need a few coats to get a solid color without any streaks. I own " Its raining men" & " gimme gimme a man".

I own two of these. One is called 'show me the money' (a dark jade with shimmer) and the other one is a light minty green also with shimmer. I have to say i'm impressed! The formula is really thick and with the dark jade one i only needed one coat! I really like that the shimmer in them is really subtle, just enough to give a sheen. And with a top coat the color should easily last a week.

Chichi has a huge range of nail colors at affordable prices. I think they're great if you want to try out fun crazy colors. Can't wait to get some more next time they're on sale.

I have one in: High Heeled House-wive. A medium chocolate brown shade with grey tones. A creme finish that takes about three coats to get it fully opaque. My only hate is that they chip quite easily. Gives a smooth finish and brush is easy to use.

The colour range is gorgeous. But, I found the polishes are quite runny and look streaky if you don't add a few extra coats. I can't recommend them.
