This color is apart of the Finger Paints core line. It's a deep blue purple that is almost a dupe for OPI's Sapphire in the Snow. The formula was easy flowing and the brush wasn't to thin or too thick. Great overall polish.
This is a great polish for winter or fall. It's a black based burgundy-raisin shimmer finished polish. The formula was ok for me I use thicker coats because thinner coats were to patchy and the polished dragged. This is what I wanted Royal Raj Ruby to be.
This is warmer toned version of Essie Jazz. The formula was thick and kinda unmanageable. This color is limited edition and is apart of Essie's Holiday/Winter collection.
MAC LoveJoy is a brown rose color with some shimmer. It's a very pretty color and actually shows up very russet almost on my skintone.It lasted about a good four hours before I had to reapply. Overall a good staple for anyone's collection.
I brought this as a set for the Susan G Komen foundation. This is a yellowy pastel pink. The color is very milky and pretty the problem lies with the formula. This polish is runny and streaky. Despite careful application I still had bald spots which annoyed me to no end an I used three coats to even out the streakiness to no avail.
It's too bad this color is limited edition because I would buy it again and again. This color came out with Essie fall 2011 collection. It looks like a standard vampy cream but it so much more. It's a deep raisin with a hint of brown to keep it from look straight black indoors. The formula was great I used two and a top coat and was good to go.
Valiant is apart of L'Oreals Color of Hope for fall 2011. It's a tpical medium silver foil. It's a pretty standard color not bad but nothing new or stupendous.
This color is limited edition shade that came out with China Glazes fall 2011 Metro collection. City Siren is a cool toned deep red shade. It applied o.k. for me it seemed as if I couldn't wipe off the brush enough as I applied it on my nails. It's a beautiful fall shade great to transition to the cooler days.
This is a limited edition polish from the metro collection for fall 2011. This is a deep red purple creme. It's decent color good for fall or winter. The application was standard but I used three coats.
This is a great vampy rich red. It has a jelly quality as other reviewers have stated so I used three coats to make the coverage more opaque. The formula was great and the brush cooperated with me as I have a hit or miss relationship with the Essie's brush. I also used three coats so I could get the color to be as deep as it is in the bottle on my nails. Nice fall/winter shade. NC55 for reference.
Angora Cardi came out with the fall the 2009 collection. In the bottle it looks like a medium mauve but it applies darker and more of a purple shade. The color itself is pretty but kind of clashes with skin tone. The formula was manageable but the color doesn't look good on my hands so it's going to be a toe color.
Jazz is a neutral creamy beige taupe. I'm not sure what collection it came out with but I was tricky to find. The formula was really easy to work with I used two decent coats. I'm NC55 so it looks great on my skintone.
This is red jelly polish that is a clean red not to pink or orange just straight red. The formula is wonderful it was a breeze to apply. I thought it would be alot deeper because it looked dark in the bottle but it's a lot brighter once on the nail. Color so hot it berns is more orange and Essie's limited addiction is deeper.
This color came out with the Fall 2010 collection. Little Brown Dress is a deep chocolaty brown almost like a Hershey chocolate bar. It unique because even though it's such deep dramatic color, indoors it still looks brown and not black. The formula was great the only problem I had was Essie's brush. For my nails it's so thin that I sometimes have application problems.
Even though I wouldn't purchase again because I have so many polishes, this is a great fall red. This is a very pink leaning red not what I would call cranberry. The formula was great as others have remarked but I'm not a fan of Essie's brush it's too thin for my nail beds.
