Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Chelsea - Kelidoscope

5.0

Somebody at Chelsea never learned to spell, but don't let that stop you. This is one unusual, beautiful polish. I don't know that I've ever seen a duotone this strong before. It flashes green, purple, blue, violet, and every color in between. There's a whole lot of variation on the nail, and you don't have to go looking for different lighting situations to see color …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Not in Kansas Anymore . . . Red

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2008

I like this polish a lot. It's not anything really interesting, not like some of the other hard-to-find OPIs, but it's a great red-for-all-occasions. It's not as vampy as other reviewers have claimed in my opinion (or maybe I just calibrated my 'vamp'-meter to Black Magic Mountain, and this is nowhere near that level). It's a darker, brick red with faint bluish …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Sugarplum Yum

LOVE. This is the nail polish equivalent of MAC pigment's Pink Opal. I wear them together, in fact, when I want my eyes to match my tips. I like this color a lot. It's a strong duotone, it layers well, and it's a gold tone that pairs nicely with my cool coloring, which is rare. One of my favorites, not for the holidays necessarily, but especially for spring, where it gives a nice …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Black Magic Mountain

Dec/04/2008

I ran across a bottle quite by accident, but since everyone raved about it, I brought it home to see what all the fuss was about.

On the nail, it's a blackened plum, very vampy, with very subtle silvery shimmer. Ordinarily, nothing I'd write home about. I've seen a couple shades like it, though nothing exactly the same. So after a three coat and TC application, I stare …

Polishes - OPI - What's Dune?

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/04/2008

Okay, I'm nuts for anything holo, which makes What's Dune a HG polish for me. Why? because you can add it to just about anything and turn the other color insta-holo. Try adding it to Black Magic Mountain: WOW. It's like the chocolate of nail polishes: you can add it to anything, and it automatically makes the other thing taste better. Too bad it's so hard to …Read more

Okay, first off, I usually hate sheers. This is the exception to that rule. I usually wear only one or two coats when I put it on, and I actually love the way it glimmers subtly. The holo is there if you're looking, but if you're not it's just a pretty sheer blue. Gorgeous. It also layers nicely over lots of other blues, and over reds, strangely enough. A must-have, if you can get …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Sand-erella

I cannot say enough about how much I LOVE Sanderella. It's completely unique; there's nothing out there quite like it. The holo glitter shows up just as much on the nail as in the bottle, and the unusual lavender color is interesting enough that I'd wear it even if it weren't shimmering so brightly at me. I'm a sucker for holo polishes, so I loved the whole collection …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Day at the Peach

A HG pink. I'm not a pink person; I wear it only when I have to, and in general I like my mani colors to be brighter and more flashy than your average pink, but DATP is pink for the person like me. The holo here is crazy, and gorgeous. It shows up just as strongly on the nail as in the bottle. I actually got lucky enough to find this whole collection (DATP, Blue Moon Lagoon, Sanderella, and …Read more

Polishes - OPI - La Boheme [DISCONTINUED]

Wow.

I finally understand the hype. I found my bottle at a dusty, which I'm glad of because the online prices for LB are ridiculous. But once I got it home to try out, I was converted. This is a remarkable color, and I'm being very stingy with it because I'm terrified it'll run out before I can find more.

In the bottle, it's a complex mixture of …

Polishes - BORGHESE - Celestiale Silver

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/31/2008

There are no words for how much I love this color. It's a gold-tinted silver, that appears variously as silver, gold, olive, pewter, and bronze, in various lights. It really is a chameleon. It's lighter in tone than Chanel's Kaleidoscope, but the behaviour is the same.

The application is really nice, not at all streaky. My nails take two coats for complete coverage …
