I used it once (last night) and my face started tingling... I woke up this morning and had little red bumps on my normally fairly clear skin (mostly my forehead and cheeks). Granted, my period is starting next week so my hormones are out of whack, but this doesn't normally happen to me.
I tried it again tonight and got the same tingling sensation and I find the red bumps were more …

I like the neon pink colour (it has blue undertones, looks a lot like "Barbie" pink), but there are a few things that I don't like about this polish: it goes on super streaky and needs at least 3 coats to make it opaque, and it goes on matte.

You definitely need a top coat with this nail polish, otherwise it looks kinda unfinished. I just got it as a pedicure the other …

I actually like this polish and colour. It's different than most of the colours I own... I tend to buy browns, deep reds and just darker shades in general.

This colour is a very light peach, so in my opinion, the name is pretty on point. Looks like they took white polish and added just a pinch of peach.

It takes about 2-3 coats and it does go on streaky, but nothing …

First I'd like to say, I'd definitely repurchase. No question!

This matte top coat is great, but I can't compare it to others because this is the only one I've tried.

I find it dries insanely fast, so no need to worry about that.

I read here that people find it darkens the colour of the polish. I never noticed it, but now that I've read …

I asked for this shade for Christmas and I am so glad I did. I LOVE it. It is a lot like MAC's Satin Taupe, but the difference is in the packaging and it is actually a bit darker than Satin Taupe.

The packaging is really pretty and different than the usual MAC eyeshadows. A couple of my friends were going through my makeup and both of them stopped and were both …

love this! a colleague sells avon and i bought this on a whim... so glad i did! just put it on now as part of my Christmas mani! the glitter is subtle, which is great. the light catches it in the prettiest way.
i've paired it with avon's "real red" nail polish, which is essentially the same shade of red but without the shimmer (i did my ring finger with ruby …

i would describe this colour as a deep grape. in some light, it looks black. i put on a base coat and two coast of BCC and it lasted a week (would have lasted longer but i finally got tired of it and took it off). for a nail polish to last that long on me is incredible. i have a lot of OPIS polishes, but this one seems to last longer than any of them. usually a polish lasts about 3-4 days on …Read more

omg, i just put this on and i LOVE it!! i've been looking for a brown polish that is "just right" and not too dark/harsh. this is it!

the best way i can describe this colour is milk chocolate that has subtle gold flecks that only certain light catches.

this colour looks great with my fair skin (NC15). i'm not sure how this would look on other skin tones …

I gave it a 4 because after only a couple of days, it's chipping. Plus, I got it professionally done at a salon and chipping soooo....

but anyway, I actually adore this colour. I picked it on a whim at the salon and love it. Think I'll buy a bottle now if I can find it.

It's a great neutral that is not overly shimmery. The light catches it and makes it look …

Sep/01/2012

i just bought this other day because my old black polish (which is now discontinued) is pretty much done.

this polish is very black and high shine. i find it goes on okay but i'm not a huge fan of the brush. it's hard to get it on evenly right away because the polish really accumulates on the brush.

i've also used essie's "matte about you" over …
