Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Nail Color in Sparked / # 435F

I bought this product on a whim at Wal*Mart as I always love glitter polishes. When I was doing my nails for a Halloween party using N.Y.C. Chinatown polish and N.Y.C. White Lights glitter, I swiped this on my pinky nail out of curiosity. I was really surprised at how dense the glitter was. It's so dense that I would actually use this polish alone instead of layering it over another solid color. Applies great and dries fast. Would purchase again.

I saw this color in an add for New York Color in some random magazine and I just had to have this color. In the ad, it looked like a dark matte turquoise green a color I have been wanting to try for some time now. However, I was pretty disappointed when I tried the actual color. The formula was pretty runny (kind of typical, so I applied 3 coats). But really, it looked nothing like in the ad. Instead of being matte, it was really iridescent and almost frosty. And, instead of being a dark turquoise green, it looked more like a bright blue-green (not sure if that's the best explanation <_<). However, I couldn't be too disappointed about it, I mean, it did cost only .99 cents (w/ coupon). So far I've worn it about 2-3 times, any time I feel like wearing something different. I don't really like the color...and nope, I won't purchase it again.

This glitter is perfect for layering over other polishes, and it's really great how there's an even application of glitter with each swipe. The price is great and I really enjoy this product, so yes, I would purchase this again :)

I was on the hunt for an inexpensive purple polish when I found this color in Target. It was just what I was looking for, but I really expected the worst in terms of application. I was seriously pleasantly surprised to find that it only took 2 coats. I really love this color and would definitely purchase it again (it helps that it's only $1.25 lol). I love how it has a nice pearly iridescent finish to it--really nice, but not overdoing it.

I love wearing this color! It's my favorite eyeshadow to wear during the summer. I like to add just a light wash of this color over my lids, it looks gorgeous. This is the only Cover Girl eyeshadow I would actually repurchase and continue to use. I really hate the sponge applicator that comes with it (kind of rough on the skin), but it gets the job done.
I bought this on my vacation in San Francisco last year, and I'm a little embarrassed to say that at $18 USD it's the most expensive beauty product I've ever bought. That being said, I love the refreshing minty scent and the perfect cherry color. It's not too sheer nor too dark. The packaging however definitely leaves something to be desired. As soon as I popped the cap off of the tube the gloss began to ooze out, so I wound up with alot more gloss on my lips than I had intended. Even a small amount of pressure placed on the tube caused gloss to squirt out. Now that I've used a good portion of it, the tube is more manageable. I see the tube lasting quite some time, so maybe it was worth the $18 USD. I could see myself purchasing another tube in the future.
