Top/Base Coats - Poshe - Super-Fast Drying Top Coat

Jul/01/2012

This is my new hg top coat. Love it so much. I was using Revlon Quick Dry but like most quick dry top coats it did nothing to prolong the life. The first bottle I bought was great, but the second bottle was a bad formula that bubbles no matter what, so I decided it was time to look for a new TC.

I was using SV but it's just ok...and like most QD TC's it does not extend the …

Misc Beauty Tools - Tweezerman - Precision Tweezers

5.0

Jun/14/2012

I will never use another tweezer again. I've had these for years and they've stayed sharp and precise. Other tweezers just do not compare. It is so easy to grip and isolate a hair with them, and they have just the right amount of resistance. They work great for eyebrows and ingrown hairs. I know that $20 is a lot to pay for a pair of tweezers but these are definitely worth it. …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Stone Cold - Capitol Colours Hunger Games Collection

The color is amazing and really really unique. The formula is a tad tricky because it dries so quickly...the finish can be kinda lumpy if you don't work fast enough. The matte finish is gorgeous and it looks amazing under a shiny top coat as well.

Unfortunately it chips. I used base coat and top coat of course, but nothing helps. You won't make it 24 hours without a chip …

Top/Base Coats - Orly - Bonder Rubberized Basecoat

5.0

Jun/13/2012

This is my everyday, go-to basecoat. I like the rubbery feeling after it dries. It grips the polish and aids in a smoother application. I don't think it necessarily makes my polish last any longer, but I also work with my hands a lot so I don't know if there is a product out there that could keep my polish from chipping after a couple days. It prevents staining on my nails and makes …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Nail Lacquer - Bahamian Escape

The formula on this one can be a little tricky. It's a bit runny and it takes a while to dry. I do experience some pooling at the cuticles if I don't do very thin coats. It is opaque in two coats and is a beautiful color. The formula isn't THAT bad, but it isn't perfect, hence the 4 lippies instead of 5. I adore the color and use this polish all the time, so I definitely …Read more

It's a nice banana yellow. The color looks good with my skin tone and it doesn't look like nail fungus, which I think a lot of yellow polishes do. It only gets 3 lippies because of the formula though. I could not get it opaque for the life of me! I have all the other polishes from this collection (Up and Away) and I didn't have any problems with their formula. But this seemed …Read more

Shampoo - OGX - Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo

Jun/01/2012

I really wanted to love this shampoo. I adore the Moroccan Oil brand products but they are prohibitively expensive and I was really hoping this knock off would be at least a little similar. I love the smell, and I feel it gets my hair clean, but I wouldn't buy it again because it makes my hair SO STATICKY! It's crazy...I haven't had a problem with static in my hair for years but …Read more

Top/Base Coats - REVLON - Quick Dry Top Coat

Created with Sketch.

May/31/2012

This top coat works well for me. I have a brand new bottle of Seche Vite, but I still got some shrinkage with a couple polishes and it didn't end up as shiny as I wanted it. I don't get any shrinkage with the Revlon top coat. It makes the polish look flawless, even if there were issues with application. It just smooths everything out. I LOVE the high shine finish.

I will …
