Polishes - Sephora Collection - Break a Leg Warmer

Perfect shade of grey. IMO, it has a little bit of blue in itself. It provides full opacity after only one coat. and it stayed on my nails almost one week long (on Essie's First Base and with one coat of Seche Vite) so durability is impressive. I really do love $OPI's polishes.

I love this color. I know that it is not something particularly unique and amazing, but it has that something in itself that made ​​me do some huge back-ups :D
Aaaaand - it's Chanel. When I'm wearing Particuliere I feel like a lady - even when I'm in my sweat pants and hoodie :D

Consistency is awesome - thick and creamy. Brush also is awesome …

Beautiful spring-ish shade. Bright fuchsia pink with awesome gold glass flecked.
I usually use 2 coats but sometimes it requires 3 coats.

Bright, vivid, and very very spring-y and summery-y. Aw aw, I love it :)))

Top/Base Coats - Orly - Top 2 Bottom basecoat and topcoat in one

I like this product but with Orly polishes only. And I use Top2Bottom as a base coat.

When I used T2B with OPI, Essie or China Glaze polishes there was no wow. Base like any other. But with Orly's is kinda super :D Orly polishes last much longer with this BC.

And I don't like it as a top coat. Dunno why, just beacuse I suppose :D

And I don't know …

Polishes - China Glaze - Channelesque

This is my HG in taupe's category. Maybe in all-the-best-polishes even.

It's a taupe with a lot of heather-ish hints in it. I love this lavender/heather-ish raise, it's fantastic.

Formula very ok - Channelesque needs only one coat. It's thick and creamy and opaque.

I'm glad that Below Deck is so similar to Channelesque, because I …

OMG gorgeous. This is one of my most precious polishes. I have a few bottles in back-up, because it's fantastic.

Dark purple jelly-like base with glitter, glass flecked and, tada tada, flakies. I love flakies soooo much.

I always use one coat of MM on some dark, creme polish (usually OPI's Siberian Nights or Essence's Thelma). And with it MM looks soooooo …

Polishes - CHANEL - Le Vernis Nail Colour in Paradoxal #509

Simply beautiful. It's a grey-ish purple with some nice purple shimmer which looks perfect in direct sunlight. I know that this polish is expensive, but it's worth every penny.
Formula is nice - it needs two coats, but this is ok with me. I can't say anything objectively about drying time - always use a coat od SV with my polishes, so Paradoxal dries quickly ;p

In …

Long-awaited continuation of Channelesque. More heather-ish than Channelesque but you can say that this is the same color. In use similar to original - thick, creamy, opaque after one coat. Me heart it.

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Eternal Optimist

Sooooo nice.

It's a beige with peachy undertones. In the bottle it looks more peachy than beige but on my nails it's definitely beige with peachy hints.
Oh, and on my hands there's not a mannequein hands effect - I have very pale skin.

Formula is watery, it needs three coats to be opaque.

Perfect shade of nude. Go get it :D

Very nice shade of 'steel' grey with some nice, delicate shimmer. LWF definitely has blue undertones, sometimes it looks more like grey-ish blue than blue-ish grey.

Catrice's polishes are cheap, they cost about $3 for 0.3oz. And they have great names, and shades, I'd have all colors from this new color palette :D. Formula of LWF is nice - not too thick, not too …
