Fun, girly color for spring and summer! It is an opaque baby pink with a creme finish. It is difficult to apply, but I've worn white nail polish a lot (which often gets streaky), so I guess I have had some experience. I can get it to look decent with 2 thick coats, but 3 is best. I don't usually do thick coats, but these pastel Essie polishes actually will even themselves out and …Read more

I got these in Laced Up and put a turquoise French mani tip on them. I cut the appliques into smaller pieces and was able to get a complete mani and pedi with just half the package. The wear was great, nearly 2 weeks before I took it off just because I didn't like the new nail growth showing. I put a clear top coat on it every 2 days though. I got tons of compliments.<br><br>I …Read more

My feelings for this product are so-so, but I only have one bottle, in Polar Bare. The formula can be somewhat streaky in this color, which is what doesn't impress me. The brush is okay, one edge of it is actually a little uneven, making application just a little off. I suppose in another color, with an unflawed brush, I may have a different opinion. The wear is at least average, though …Read more

Very, very pale mint green, almost with a greyish tinge to it, and opaque. A lot of mint polishes will play up any pink tones in the skin and make your hands look red, but this polish avoids that (at least on me) because there is not as much green. Application can be a little bit tricky, I needed 3 coats for it to look even. The second time, I learned to do a thicker coat- the polish doesn't …Read more

I am generally not into shimmer or sparkle nail polish, but I picked this up on a whim and do not regret it a bit. The pale pink color and tiny sparkles only show up if you layer several coats. I prefer to wear it with just one coat and a clear topcoat. It just makes my nails look super glossy and healthy because the microsparkles pick up the light easily. I don't have a problem getting the …Read more

Both my mother and I sampled this fragrance today. My mother thought it smelled very familiar and I took a couple sniffs and recognized a strong similarity to the Gardenia Lily line from Bath and Body Works, which my mother uses. There's brief fruitiness in the top notes, then it's pretty much all floral (a lot of gardenia- if that wasn't obvious from my previous comment). The base …Read more

Sweet, rich, caramel-goodness. I could tell there was some kind of white floral (the tiare) in it as well- I have a particular affinity for it. It's a warm comfort scent and generally a people-pleaser, especially in cooler weather. I couldn't smell the amber much from the bottle, but it bloomed on my skin. It is long-lasting on me, as I can still smell it fairly well 6 hrs later. I have …Read more

This is an intriguing and rather original scent, but it's never something I feel like reaching for myself. Overall, I would call it a watery (though not necessarily oceanic) scent, it kind of feels like cucumber with a pronounced metallic note, and a hint of anise when it warms on my skin. It's the metallic note- which I'm guessing is "ozone"- that I really disagree with …Read more

I don't know if it's because of the color I bought (Hush Hush), but this polish looks cheap. After 4 coats it still looked streaky. It was $1.97 at Walmart, so the price was affordable, but I wouldn't purchase again<br><br>The sad thing is that I have an older bottle of MegaLast polish, it was a larger bottle, in a nice sheer color called Lost Love #208. The coverage …Read more

Best classic red nail polish imo. I don't even have cool-toned skin, but it looks marvelous on me. Definitely a blue-based cherry red creme- very timeless or pin-up retro. I will definitely keep purchasing this as my go-to red shade!<br><br>Price was very reasonable (under $5) and I had no problems with application. Two coats was enough for even coverage for me, and I've …Read more
