Polishes - REVLON - Cherries in the Snow

3.0

Aug/22/2015

Very cool toned raspberry magenta red, glossy opaque creme with no shimmer or glitter.
Typical Revlon quality formula and decent brush, doesn't get gluggy over time.
Quite a pretty colour and different to the deeper reds, bordeauxs, microshimmmers etc in my collection.
Nice on toenails or fingernails. I wouldn't buy it again as I have plenty of various reds to choose …

Polishes - REVLON - Super Top Speed - Zippy

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2015

I've had this polish for years and the colour is a classic, perennially summer, coral-pink creme with fine gold micro shimmer. Great for summer toenails.

It applies very evenly and opaque in one easy coat. It's a rapid dry polish and it does dry really fast. I can paint my toes and it's as good as dry in a minute. Two coats with topcoat a little longer to dry but still …

Brighter than Essie Mint Candy Apple and China Glaze For Audrey, though all in similar 'Tiffany' colour. Can look a bit streaky going on, the second coat can pull the first coat but the 3rd coat fixes this to a nice even finish.

Looks great on tanned or paler skin. I have neutral skin tone and this colour pops without being neon or cheap looking.

China Glaze for …

Top/Base Coats - OPI - Drip Dry

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/22/2015

OPI Drip Dry is a little bit pricey BUT it is something I won't go without. I've been using this for years and years. It's the last step in doing my nails, not only does it quickly and easily speed up drying time to within a few short minutes, but it also makes my cuticles look all smooth and tidy and moisturised.

The drops come in a small glass bottle with a cap that …

Aug/16/2015

HG nail file! Great product that lasts for years and just WORKS beautifully. Feels great in the hand, not cheap or flimsy, nicely balanced length. Price per use is very cheap, but bit pricey initial outlay, yet it lasts..

I have nails that are at times weak/bendy or peel or crack at the tips easily - so I need a file that's gentle yet effective. They don't wear out and are …

Polishes - Essie - Naughty Nautical

Stunning, slight shimmer colour of the sea, for me the perfect turquoise shade. I have no issues whatsoever with the formula nor application. I bought this in 2015 from Priceline in Australia. Essie is pricey here, I think I paid around $16 for this but I use it often enough to justify the price. Looking at older reviews, I think the formula's changed, I find it easy to use.

I …

Polishes - Maybelline New York - Color Show in Blue Freeze

3.0

Aug/08/2015

This looks great in the bottle, but then looks like a watery greenish cast and applies thin. To make this work and look quite expensive really, I've experimented and found you definitely need a base colour down first -- eg over a black base eg Essie Licorice, a couple of coats followed by shiny topcoat makes this look like a very dark blue black with enough shimmer to give it some …Read more

A full week before I got any chips and only then on two fingers, and I use my hands a lot at work, so without even being careful, no gloves in the kitchen at home etc, this has made my manicure last and last. In case the products used in conduction with this make any differencelast generally use: Essie Millionails (HG!) base coat to harden and stop nails peeling and bending, 2 coats of colour …Read more

Edit: I must say that while the peeling has stopped, it did continue for longer than i expected. It was not until i started alternating and giving my nails a break from this every 2nd week or so that they showed a difference. It did however act as a decent base coat and did slow up any chips from the peeling underneath, my nails did feel better. But it is not quite the HG I thought I had found …Read more

Polishes - essence - Colour & Go #162 Dare It Nude

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/10/2015

Colour& Go in shade #162 in Dare It Nude is an opaque cream with the slightest shimmer through it, again very much a shade that dupes more expensive brands. The nude is just beautiful.
Goes on in one to two coats and dries quickly, looks super smooth and shiny, very wearable colour. It has both warm and cool tones to it, I think it'd suit most skin tones.
I think these are …
