Beautiful dark brick red. Won't be repurchasing because it's too "winish" for my skin tone, but I will definitely use it up. Good coverage.
Requires three coats to cover evenly and it's not brown or red, it's a brownish-wine with more cool undertones than warm. Will not be repurchasing as it's too plain for me.
I'm on my second bottle. The best top coat ever. However, it does get thick quickly so make sure to polish quickly and cap it tightly.
Looking for a sheer white that will make your nails look clean and neat? This is it. It is the most perfect sheer ivory-white that makes your nails look naturally flawless and perfect with one coat. I love this on my toes and when going with clean, short nails on my hands.

Great products for younger skin. Used it in my 20's and loved the light gel and fresh scent. Hard to find but worth it for oily/combination skin that wants light hydration.

Oily, smells exactly like bananas, and too rich for my skin. Not memorable and did nothing for my skin after a whole jar's worth. I prefer Nivea.
Broke out my skin. :(
The best skincare products I have ever used have been Nivea. No need to say more.
I'm using 04 Nude and it is a perfect match for my NW20 skin. I use moisturizer before applying and the foundation lasts all day 8-10 hours with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish as my setting powder in Light-Medium and I reapply powder if my nose gets a little shiny on humid days. EDIT: From 5 lippies to 2. Breakout related to the use of this product. I'll wear it only for a few hours from now on but not all day. Horrible!
Beautiful nude beige that goes on streak-free and creamy. If you do one coat, it's perfectly sheer and gives you the clean lightly manicured look. If you do two coats, it looks like a creamy nude base and three coats (doesn't look good one me) but ends up looking exactly like the bottle. A very milky creamy with a touch of beige and nude and a hint of pink. Great on my NC20 skintone but a little too brown based to be my holy grail or to use for frenches. EDIT: 5 Lippies!! I use this with over one coat of sheer white base and it's my holy grail. The cleanest, best french I've ever had!
Creamy light peach that goes on streaky and milky. Horrible color! If you do one coat it's still usable, but the color streaks and if do a second, you end up with light orangey peach cream that looks absolutely horrible. God forbid, you do a third coat, and you look like you have glow-in-the-dark light orange nails. Not for french manicures unless you have dark skin tone. I am fair and this color looks horrible on me.
This products is so overhyped but does not work on my 4a curls. It's extremely sticky, took forever to dry, left a horrible residue and just my curls look gloppy and wet. I will never buy again regardless of how good it smells. It might work for a tighter afro-american 4b-4c-5 curl, but it did not work for my 4a texture.
Too pink/lilac and I prefer more nude based sheers for my french manicure. It made my fingertips look swollen and washed out. Did not like it at all and will never use again.
If you want to smell like an old lady, this is the scent to buy. Also, it doesn't last so you'll need to spritz lots of it on throughout the day.
My husband surprised me with the huge Eau de Parfum. I love this scent: mandarin, pear, chypre, citrus, patchouli and jasmine. Serious enough to wear from day to night. If you are like me and you love Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle, you will absolutely ADORE Miss Dior Cherie. :)
