I love this color, and got several compliments when I wore it. Just the prettiest shade of rose pink with a great shimmer.

Applies smoothly, dries quickly, only 2 coats needed. The metallic finish does show flaws easily, but that's the nature of shimmery metallics. There is a slightly frosty finish, but it's far from strong. I don't think this polish is dated or tacky …

Formula is soft and easily blendable. Not completely waterproof, but wearability is very good. Retractable, so the formula doesn't dry out. Great for people who are just beginning to color their brows, or people like me who just want a quick and easy touch-up. A little expensive, but worth it for me. I haven't found a cheaper alternative that is as easy to use or as convenient.

A very pretty pink that is subtle and traditional. There is a slight frosty finish, but it's subdued enough that it isn't old lady-ish. A nice everyday pink.

It's almost sheer, and I needed 3 coats. It also began to show wear at the ends of my nails by the fourth day. Chipping, peeling, thinning. So while it is a cute color I will probably not repurchase.

I really don't even know how I ended up with this nail polish. It's a bright bumblebee yellow and certain skin tones can pull it off and make it look chic. I'm wearing it now and it looks better than I expected, but not my cup of tea. A little too unusual for my tastes.

It dries quickly, but is streaky and requires 3 coats. So not a good choice for nail art.

This is a very pretty gloss that adds a nice touch of color and shimmer on its own, and can make a red lipstick really pop. It looks red in the tube but goes on as a dark raspberry pink. A bit longer-lasting than some other glosses, but that's because it's kind of thick and sticky. A little too sticky for my tastes. Too thick to layer over softer lipstick without mess, and sticky enough …Read more

A dark blue that is not quite so dark it looks black. Has some very mild shimmer that adds some dimension. Dries quickly and is nice and shiny. Opaque in two coats. A must-have for fans of blue polish.

I've had this color for years and regularly return to it when I want a red nail with a little bit of pop. Even after sitting under my sink for 5 years, the only sign of this polish aging is slightly slower dry time. Formula is smooth and opaque in two coats. Dries kind of rough, so is best with a top coat. Great for a holiday nail but not by any means restricted to …Read more

I have Tattoo My Heart, which I think is no longer available from the MAC store. It's a nice semi-neutral coral pink. Good for everyday wear. Goes well with my skin tone.

This is sort of a mix between a gloss and a stain. It applies almost watery, and once setting remains soft, like you have a thick layer of balm on. Application can be a little difficult because of just how loose …

I do really like this color. It's a very bright, summery coral-pink, and it dries quickly.

However, the formula is streaky and needs 3 thick coats to provide a uniform color. Even with 3 coats, I can see some unevenness in the color on close inspection. IMO not acceptable for such a strong color.

My brush also came detached from the cap and needed to be glued back …
