Polishes - China Glaze - Cranberry Flame

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/21/2014

This is a gorgeous color, nearly an exact duplicate to Essie's "After Sex", though "After Sex" has a better formula and is easier to paint on. I found that Cranberry Flame is a little sheer and streaky and takes longer to dry. It needed three coats to be perfectly opaque on me and to disguise the streakiness. However the color is gorgeous so I would buy it again.

This review is for: "Sally Hansen strengthening for weak, thin nails fast & gentle nail polish remover with vitamin E & hydrolyzed wheat protein"

I've tried other brands of polish remover but I was really impressed with this when I tried it recently for the first time. It took my polish off much faster than other brands I've used and did not seem to dry out …

Polishes - Orly - Blue Collar

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/05/2008

I totally *love* this color! It's just about my favorite shade of blue nail polish. I'd say it was kind of close to Opi's "Just Groovy", only a little lighter and brighter. It's a perfect creme. I think you get could get good coverage in one coat but I used two anyway. I really love the quality of Orly's polishes. I've used other brands and I think Orly has …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Do You Lilac It?

Sep/05/2008

I love this color! It's a beautiful medium lilac creme. It applied perfectly (with the Pro-Wide brush) and was evenly opaque in two coats. It dried fast too, even before I put on the Seche Vite top coat.
You can see a photo of this color on my notepad :)

Polishes - MAC Cosmetics - Kloreen

Aug/13/2008

This is such a cool color! I don't know if Mac still makes it but I don't think they do. It's a shimmery blue-green color that reminds me of a mermaid's tail or something like that. It went on a little unevenly and was ever so slightly thick but it might be because it was a little old and could have used a drop or two of thinner in it. It dried pretty quickly when I used the …Read more

Polishes - Essie - After Sex

Aug/03/2008

I totally *love* this color. It's a gorgeous deep cranberry red (not even the slightest hint of orange, a definite cool-tone red) and has the same color shimmer in it, which gives it a cool metallic look. I think my nails look like Christmas baubles and I really love how the color pops against my pale while skin. I can hardly stop admiring my manicure with this color on. I've already …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Jumpin' Junkanoo

Jul/27/2008

I really love this color! It's a beautiful purplish pink creme shade that is very slightly sheer and almost like jelly type of polish. It's nicely opaque in two coats and paints on perfectly with no streaking. It's dries very fast also but I do use the Seche Vite dry fast top coat when I paint my nails. I have natural nails and so far have had no chips after three days with this …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Nail Lacquer - Yoga-Ta Get This Blue!

Jul/19/2008

I *love* this color! It's a gorgeous shimmery navy blue with a hint of purple/indigo. Easily opaque in two coats. It's actually opaque with one coat but I had to do two coats to even out streakiness. I bought my bottle online and the polish was just a little bit thick, which is why I couldn't paint it evenly, so I might have gotten an older bottle. I just added a couple drops of …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Orly - Bonder Rubberized Basecoat

Jul/08/2008

This was my first time trying the Orly bonder and I totally love it! I had tried Creative Nail design "Stickey" before and that was a disaster (I explained in my review on that).
The Orly bonder dried rather quickly and did not affect the drying time of the polish that I used on top of it. I would definitely buy it again.

Jul/08/2008

This review is for Piggy Polish brand nail polish in the shade "Polar Sea Ice".

This was my first time trying this brand of polish. I bought it at Ulta, though I don't recommend shopping there as they over-price *everything*. They had polishes priced at two or three times what I have paid when buying online at websites like 8ty8beauty.com or …
