YUMMMMMMYYY the best scene of the whole line for sure! I did need to put on a least e coats for the best color and evenness of the product but such a awesome impluse buy!
You do require more than 3 coats to get a nice consistant color , and the smells is so yummy I can get my hands away from my face to breathe in all in.. so much fun!!!!
I agree with the reveiws that you need a minimum of three coats to get the full effect and coverage of the polish for sure, if you have the time for it it does give an stand out result.
I fell in love with the color, I found that I required a few coats to really get a awesome shade of color and full coverage. Plus the name is super duper cute which is always a plus!
I find when I am at a loss and stumped with a color choice for my nails I always grab this one as its just so bright and welcoming. So so so lovely and impressed with the application and results of the polish even after a few months of having it. no clumping yet.
I find with all OPI polishes if you really look and shop around you can find it very affordably prices. I believe in having a red as a staple in any nail polish collection now matter how small or big... and this one is fantastic. I was very impressed with the results after the first coat..... will buy again for sure!!!!!
This I scored at winners for a awesome price..... I found this an awesome bast color a very chamelon shade that I do not have to worry about clashing or overtaking my outfit. Very much enjoyed!

I was given this by a friend who didnt like it at all, and its honestly my go to first pick of fragences. I wear it more consisitantly then any other perfume I have ever bought or received. I cant quite put my finger on why I am so in love with this, but I just am..... but hey differnt sprays for differnt ladies.
I received this as a gift over teh holiday season and I am quite pleased with it. I am usually one to smell like something yummy this one was a bit different, and I liked it. I found by iteslf its quite unsual, however once i had it one it was very pleasent. Would purchase again if I actually ever used this bottle up which i doubt as I have a large collection of perfume and have a hard time committing to a signature scent......ooopps... hahah
Cleansers -Clinique - Liquid Facial Soap - Oily skin

After countless attempts to find the best tailored face cleansing regime this is the one that works for me. I like this soap pump as its gentle enough to use frequently as I have a pump on my sink and in the shower. I personaly find this is enough for my skin. I use the toners and lotion rarely as I find the soap keep its clean enough.
I received this product as sample from a freind of mine that works at a salon. I personnaly have tempermental hair, with that being said it adapts to products all the time and builds resistance to them. I found that it ws a very easy to use and had a great response from my hair. I do not use it day to day as the sample kit fits nicely in my travel bag when I am travling. It gave me very mangable hair to detangle, however did not give me the most excellent condintioning factor. In the case of my hair....I require more deep conditioning detangler.
I received a set for xmas, and was soooo excited to play with them all. I found that they are easy to use and of very good quaility. I have has some real fun. I am curious how they will wear over time with application and cleaning. So I may do another reveiw once they have been used and abused to see how their longivity lasts.
Top/Base Coats -Sally Hansen - Miracle Nail Thickener

This is a purple bottle and it says on the package that " You will see 70% thicker nails in 4 days" Yes.... yes.... yes it true! I used this on my thin peeling sad sorry excuse for nails and I noticed stronger heathly nails in 24 hours. Amazing product I swear by it. I did notice that its a peely polish, so if you have a color over top after day two I could peel it right off base and color all in one, So I do not recommend this a as a everyday base coat. This is the best for treatment purposes for really good results.
Polishes -OPI - The Muppets Collection - Warm & Fozzie

I found this for only $7.00(CAN) at winners over the weekend and totally feel in love.... even more so when I applied it to my nails.. so much I put it on my toes and can stop staring at them... I have been getting compliments all morning at the office I work at. I have never had such a response to a nail color before. Such an awesome investment. NEW FAVE!
For those of you having trouble with the bottle after a few uses, I have few tricks that may help.. or not... take it with a grain of salt. 1) Apply lighting fast... if your a novice nail painter, try to perfect your applying skill and then this becomes easier. 2) Make sure the colored undercoat is dry... then your not fighting with a sticky layer. 3) I always wipe the outside neck part withsome nail poilsh remover, sometimes I will use a q-tip down the neck too incase of build up. 4) You kinda have to be 007 fast as I find if air gets in too long it seems to make it clumpy - as it s fast drying polish due to the shatter effect. 5) Shake shake shake shake shake... and shake some more. I know it seems like high maintence product but it makes it last longer and less application issues.. You really have to keep an open mind.. its a fast drying product when exposed to air.... differnt strokes for differnt folks. Other then that I have not had any problems with my shatter and love to use it as much as I can! Cheers!
