I tried some of the sample vials and one of the full-sized bottles and was very pleased with the product. I don't recall the shade names of the trial sizes I purchased, but one was an unusual orange-red and the other was a shimmery Army green. The full-sized bottle is shade B17, one of the sheer colors. It's a really prety mauve-pink that looks like my natural nail color, only better. The polish goes on smoothly and lasts quite a while. I will definitely be purchasing more DHC nail polish in the future.

Two coats have lasted me for days -- much better than chip-in-one-day OPI. Colors are sheer, but buildable. Very interesting colors at that, but I prefer the neutrals and milky shades. Not the line for vibrant shades. The finish is quite glossy. Buy the sample vials -- just enough to us before you get bored and want to move on to a new color.

This takes forever to dry. Color was not vibrant, it is very sheer. I bought A13 trial size. Going in the trash as I write.

I brought trail size nailpolish and I found that they chip easy. I think it takes to long to dry & they dont last very long. I put 1-2 coats and the next day, their already chipped. EDIT: I think the problem with this nail polish, is that it takes way too long to dry. So before you paint, you better make sure that you don't plan to do anything with your hands for some time.

This nail polish lasts longer than OPI, Essie, anything I've EVER tried. I ordered the little trial sizes because I thought they'd be nice for travel and to my surprise they last and last and last...more than 2 weeks on my current self-pedicure. This is GREAT nailpolish.

Got four colors as part of a Nail Trial. I got blue, burgundy, white, and "spicy pink". I like the pink and blue best. The colors come in a greyed out shimmery color palette, and they wear very well. The brush is easy to use. I had some problems first getting the test tube to sit right in the rack after I opened it, but I got used to it. A nice way to test the product out, and to get some cool travel-sized colors.

I decided to try DHC Nail Make in Misty Pink color. I am completely satisfied with this product! The bottle it comes in is ABSOLUTELY adorable and VERY PORTABLE. The color was a very pale pink/lilac color. The application was VERY easy and the Nail Make went on smooth and creamy. I liked this color, but I do have to agree with other reviewers that their color selection is a bit, um, unnatural. However, concerning the few cute, natural colors they do have and the one I tried, they were incredible. I will definitely re-purchase.

Well, DHC is Japanese and the Japanese are crazy for crazy nails, hence the color selection. Have you seen the nail vending machines?!
Anyhow, these are really cheap and good, no formaldehyde and wear well. The colors don't really look like the swatches or what they appear to be in the bottle. The nail trials are great to try different ones out, though! I really like a lot of the colors. Nice on toes, especially. My favorite is "mint green", which really isn't all that green. It has this pearlescent pink tinge to it, and it can look silver or slightly blue or slightly green. The best part is that I can wear it and it doesn't make my feet look dead (I have very pale skin), unlike other colors in that range (probably due to the pink tinge).

I'm a confirmed DHC junkie, but to be honest I was a little disappointed with Nail Make. You can't beat the price ($4.50USD for an 8 ml, or 0.27 oz, bottle), and the colors wear very well. The bottles themselves are adorable--little bubble-shaped bottles with heart- or diamond-shaped brush handles depending on whether the color is from their Heart or Diamond collection. What I really HATE is the selection of colors--EVERY one of them has shimmer in it. In addition, DHC seems to have followed the mindless trend of unrealistic colors for nails such as frosted green, blue, black and yellow. These are NOT natural colors for nails!! If DHC would come out with some creme colors, and in some reasonable colors such as pink, rose, nude or even classic red, then I would buy some. The only colors I can live with so far are Misty Pink and Bordeaux.
NB: Through 1/31/04, DHC has a special on Nail Trials, tiny little test tubes with samples of any color in their collection. For $1.25USD you get enough polish for about 4 manicures. Not a bad way to try! If you can find 4 colors you like, you can also order a little test tube rack to store 4 Nail Trials.

These are small round bottles of nail polish with either a diamond-shaped handle or heart shaped. The Heart series are pearl or milky shimmery colors. The Diamond series are shimmery, darker colors like olive, blue, deep pink, burgundy.
The wear seems only average. The price is very good.
Edited: Why didn't I get more of these when the price was a buck lower? The 05 milky beige is REALLY not beige; it's a goldish-pinkish shimmer and VERY pretty on nails (it is completely sheer.) I am going to try some more. Even at the higher price, these are affordable, though the amount is smaller. But who finished np anyway?
