The color is just nice for some one who doesn't like to have too bright color on my nails.

I have this in Black Out and Fuchsia Power, and I love them both. Great shine, and wearability.

This nail polish is my fav. The color is perfect because I aim for pinks and golds. In the light it's pink with gold shimmers but in the dark it's a berry color. I apply two coats of this to get the most of the gorgeous color since it's a bit sheer. With a base and top coat this lasts me about 2 weeks. I'm really happy with the low price and perfect sized bottle.

Love love LOVE this color! It's very girly and natural but not so sheer that it looks like a non existant skin tone color-i hate those. It is definitely an "every day" colored polish-and just gives a nice, natural, polished look. I LOVE the shimmers in this too! It gives this rose color a little extra flare and looks gorgeous on my nails when i'm sitting on the beach. It is definitely versatile in that respect, and that's what gives this color a little extra personality. It is perfect for a casual day, isn't too much for the office or a professional setting, but once you get out into the sunshine the color just turns drop dead sexy!lol

I loved this colour, a mauve-rose with gold shimmer. I think if the light hits it he right way, the gold might warm this up enough to call it "coral". I found this easy to apply, so it must have a good brush because I can be very messy with nail polish but I managed to get this on perfectly. It's not to thick and gloopy and I did not get air bubbles as it dried. I do think it is a little sheer though, I had to add three coats before I could blend out the whites of my nails, if you know what I mean.

What a find! This is my current go-to shade for pedis. Not sure why it's called Almond Crunch as it's a light rose with a ton of peachy-gold shimmer -- not unlike MAC Rose pigment, in a way. I wouldn't exactly call it sheer; one coat is plenty but two brings out the coral tones. I canNOT stop peering at my pretty pedi and can see myself using this all summer and into fall.
Cheap too -- $2.49 at drugstores. continued >>

I love the Xtreme Wear polishes. They go on great with very little streaking and no bubbles...dries quickly and have great staying power. This color is a sheer natural pink on me...one of my favs.

I really like the Xtreme Wear line. It's one of the few nail polishes that don't peel off my nails, and I can go 5 days without chips or edge wear. Almond Crunch is a shimmery gold-flecked light rose-pink. I get absolutely NO coral tones from this polish that other reviewers have noticed. The gold shimmer warms up the rose base. 2 coats gave me full coverage. I adore this shade, the shimmer makes it special. I have a ton of nail polish and I plan to keep a backup bottle of this one. The brush is excellent, it's flat and extremely similiar to the OPI Designer Series brushes. No polish pooling at the cuticle line. I am very happy with Almond Crunch! If this one works for you, try Sand Lots, another favorite of mine from this line.

Despite its name that implies a brownish color, this color is a beautiful bronzed coral peach with great lasting power. It is easy to apply, however, I usually need 3 coats to get achieve the color I am looking for. For the price, $2.59, it can't be beat. I am ready to try other colors. Originially saw an ad for this in a magazine and am glad I purchased it.

Color: 4/5. It's a warm peachy pink with gold glitter. The glitter is not outrageous at all. I prefer a colder shade of pink, but this is very nice.
Application: 5/5. It goes on much easier than Sally Hansen's Diamond Strength.
Time until dried: 4/5. Pretty standard drying time.
Cons: contains formaldehyde.
