Applies smooth and dries satisfyingly. Looks nice on short nails too.
I have oily roots (gets oily within the day).Worst shampoo I have ever used. Made me get dandruff right after washing. Could be too drying, I'm not very sure but what I'm sure is, in the bin it goes.

This works like a dream, my cuticles love it even the rough dry patch on my finger (I write alot) is softer. I highly recommend this. Let me warn you, this stuff's addictive! Could be because of the scent :) Bought it online (overseas) because it's way too overpriced locally.Was still a little expensive for my budget, but hey I'm buying it overseas I have to pay for shipping and whatnot (but still cheaper locally by about 40%). Local Burt's Bees sell it for RM41, I bought it through an online spree for RM26, just some info for Malaysians out there!
Thankfully I got this in a mini bottle in the neon collection. Always been wanting to get it and I'm so happy I got a mini to try out first. I won't recommend this to anybody. It's so thick and takes forever to dry. The shine is not as impressive as other. I would recommend SV instead but some do not like the ingredients. Sally Hansen works wonders too as an alternative
Really streaky and dilute! Application was sheer and the color payoff was just plain black on my nails. Also, this chipped the very next day for me. Usually doesn't happen to OPI on my nails.Major disappointment. 2 lippies for good dry time.
I had thought this would be a great one because it is after all Burt's Bees. I personally hate it. It's super difficult to apply (transfer to lips) and it's way to minty for me. It stings my lips and has no moisturizing effect whatsoever. Disappointing.
I read some comments that this color does not suit tanner skin tones but it doesn't suit my fair skin tone (with yellow undertones) either. The application was almost opaque in one coat and dried like a dream . Sadly made my fingers looked as if my nails were pulled out totally and was left with bare flesh. Quite creepy to be honest. Gave it 3 lippies because it actually looked like a pretty light rose/mauve color when OPI I Lily Love You was layered over it. That combo was quite nice. I don't have to sell Dulce off now.
Have this in a mini bottle. I expected to see some hints of purple in this when spied on the nail but to me it just looked pure black. I was disappointed as I was considering getting the full bottle but that won't be happening. Yes it's steeaky and it needs a few coats but that's not as issue for me.
My lipped rating is actually 3.5 because to me it looked a little cool toned for my nc25 skin tone. But I got many compliments on how great the color looked. Even my grandmother loved it. So I gave her my mini bottle ( don't know if she'll wear it ) and bought myself a full bottle. Dry time is standard for OPI but it does need a few coats for complete opacity.
This is the prettiest glitter I've seen in a bottle. I can stare at it all day. I layered this over OPI my address is Hollywood and when the light hits, u can see yellow, purple, blue, green flecks of awesomeness. The chunky flecks didn't apply nicely but that can be fixed by practice.
At first glance at the pictures online I thought it was going to be similar to OPI Funkey dunkey. Boy was i wrong. It's better, more pretty. Loooks so good for me, which is rare for a purple. I think it's not too dark, not too light. Just nice. 2 coats needed only for complete opacity.
When I saw the review of this on scrangie, I wasn't a little bit impressed but it went on sale so I decided to try it out. Turns out its my FAVOURITE pink polish of all time. It just works so well against my skintone. I'm a nc25 btw. It looks better than in the bottle. There are too many nice things I can say bout this color. The dry time is also fantastic, brush also perfect for my short nails, its just PERFECT.
Using my second bottle already and the only time when my nail polish peeled was when I used OPI dim sum plum. Never had an issue with peeling after that, maybe it's because of the way I applied my polish. Tip shrinkage happens after a few days but that canbe overcome by the technique of tip sealing the nail when applying this. With this, my mani will last at least 4-5 days looking awesome. What I didn't like about this polish is the goop of mess and strings it produces when it thickens. Mine became unbearable after 5 months with a quarter bottle left. Not only it was impossible to use, it bubbled too. Don't know if I want to thin it because with the little amount left, the short brush doesn't help either. Will continue to buy this product because it does give the mani a glass effect which awes all my friends haha. Also since the nail polish market is relatively young in my country, Sally Hansen products are wayyyyyyy overpriced and there is no good top coat available, only the cheap ones made locally or from china which I'm pretty sure contain more harmful ingredients than this
This kind of holo glitter top coat is hard to find in my country , so I took a chance when someone I knew could get this for me. It's so beautiful, especially when layered over black, it looks like the galaxy! Only downside, it takes very long to dry. But otherwise it's good and unique, something that can never be found in the local market
I find this color very addictive, especially for my toes, they just look perfect on my toes even though I have a nc25 skin. A real must have, it's a happy color! Application good, dry time fantastic!
