Just 1 coat of this polish was all I needed. I used a Sally Hansen base coat first then the one coat of Wet 'N Wild and then topped it with Seche Vite. This was on Saturday afternoon. It's now Tuesday evening and my pedicure still looks great. Red Red is certainly a very bright color so I don't think I could ever wear it on my fingernails but it makes for a perfect pedicure! Not bad for a 99 cent polish!
I applied this for the first time on Saturday afternoon and it's now Tuesday evening and my pedicure is still going strong. I even used it over a cheap Wet 'N Wild nail polish and my toenails look great. I couldn't believe that I could apply it over wet nails without smearing the previous coats of polish but it worked like a charm. I never would have known about this gem if it hadn't been for the reviews I read on MUA. Thanks, everyone! I am not the best at doing pedicures but because of Seche Vite, my pedicure looks like a pro did it. HG topcoat!

This is great for your feet. Slather it on, put on socks and hop into bed. Come morning, your feet will feel so soft!
I found Amethyst to be so beautiful and such high quality for such an inexpensive pencil that today I also bought Deep Blue and Green. I use them on my upper eyelids, dust with eyeshadow to help it "set" and then go over it lightly with a darker pencil. I find this adds a little "oomph" to my eyes. Great product!

The smell of this is definitely not for the faint hearted. Everytime I thought the odor was out of the bathroom, my husband or I would turn on the shower and bam, the smell was back! It took several days for the smell to finally disappear. Anyway, this product definitely does work but the directions aren't kidding you when it says to rinse, rinse and rinse again! Yes, it sucks standing under the shower for so long but you have no other alternative if you want to get rid of the old dye in your hair or if you don't want your hair to turn back into the same shade you were trying to get rid of. Make sure you have a radio playing so you won't be bored out of your mind while you're in the shower. My hair had turned black after dying it dark brown. The color itself was pretty and shiny but against my pale, pale skin...not a good look. This product removed the black and left me with light red. Again, not a look I desired but so much better than the black. I did redye my hair a light brown and for the first time in a long time, my hair actually looked decent. It took me a long time to realize a product such as Color Oops existed or else I would have used it when my hair first turned black instead of months after the fact. So, when used correctly, this product is a winner (despite the rank smell).

I bought a big container of this at Costco. I have dry, wavy, coarse, colored hair. This shampoo added absolutely no moisture at all. My hair felt and looked so dried out. I didn't want to waste such a large bottle of shampoo so I gave it to my husband to use. He has thin, soft hair which is on the oily side. He thought it was okay at first but now he's said he's not really liking it. He'll use it up but this definitely won't be repurchased.
This is a lovely dark blue which goes on very smoothly. My husband got very excited when he discovered that I was painting my toenails his favorite color. :-)
This is the 2nd hair product I've tried from Lush. Once again, I'm disappointed by the fragrance of the product. It's just too much. I'm not even sure I know what it smells like exactly. All I know is that it's bizarre and I can't deal with it. I used up the container because it was just too expensive not to. I guess I'm just not meant to be a Lush hair care gal.

I think it makes my hair look pretty, but oh!!! the smell!!! I can't get past the smell! It is so flowery and nauseating and there is no escaping it when it's so close to your nose! The fragrance is definitely a deal breaker for me and that's a shame because I think it's a nice product otherwise.
Oh, the smell is just horrid! I really like the packaging but I get much better results using Bath & Body Works body butter. I will use this up but I definitely won't repurchase.
This is such a gorgeous, classy shade. Perfect for when you don't feel like wearing black polish but still want something a little edgy.
Hate, hate, hate! This really dried out my hair and did not enhance my waves at all. Suave Captivating Curls mousse is so much better.
This eyeliner does not budge. I can walk around outside on a hot, humid day and sweat like a pig in doing so but this eyeliner stays put. "Color Stay" is the right name for it. I searched a long time for the perfect eyeliner and this is definitely it. When applying it, you have to work fast because it won't take long before the color "sets" and then it won't come off until you take it off. Even then, it may take a little effort to remove it. But then again, that's the whole point of it since I don't want an eyeliner that doesn't last. This is my HG eyeliner.

I am on my second bottle. I bought the first bottle, had fantastic results, then decided to try the Creme of Nature version. Big mistake. The two are worlds apart! The One 'n Only definitely wins hands down. It smoothes and defrizzes my dry, wavy, coarse hair while the Creme of Nature just smells nice and does little else for me. I like to put the One 'N Only on my hair before bedtime. I usually put quite a bit on since I want it to soak in overnight. I put my hair up in a loose bun using a scrunchie and go to sleep. The next morning I wash and condition my hair in the shower and boy, does my hair look good! I do use a clarifying shampoo once a week to eliminate any buildup that may occur from this product or any of the others that I use. I believe the 3.4 fl oz bottle costs about $9.95. Next time I'm springing for the larger bottle which costs $10.00 more. I highly recommend this product.
I really like this. I tested it out on my wrist at Ulta before purchasing and when the cashier asked what cologne I was wearing because it smelled so good, I figured I had hit the jackpot for delicious scents. So how weird is it that I have now been wearing this scent off and on for 3 months and have yet to hear anyone else comment on it! Trust me, I had totally expected to receive loads of compliments! Instead I get nada! I Maybe it doesn't smell as good on me as I think it does and people are afraid to say anything. What a bummer because I think this smells so good!
