Skincare - Face - AcneFree - Advanced Cleansing Brush

I bought this on clearance a few weeks ago at a drugstore (it's not discontinued though, thank goodness!!) due to I assume a packaging change. I was a little skeptical on how brushing your skin could make your skin look better, but seeing people going crazy for Clarisonic, I figured I'd give a more affordable product a try before investing in the whole enchilada.

Now I …

Polishes - wet n wild - Blue Moon

Blue Moon is a navy blue with a green/teal shimmer. I bought this when I renewed my obsession with nail polish (been an on and off addict since I was a kid).

When I put this polish on, I did it in a dimly lit room in the middle of the night so the application stunk. I think I did 3 coats and I think that was mostly to even out my terrible application. Despite that, my mani lasted a few …

I absolutely love this color! It shimmers like you wouldn't believe and so many people were asking what I was wearing. The application was great, I think i got away with 2-3 coats. With my base and topcoat (base: SH Hard as Nails Hardener top: SH Insta-Dri Topcoat in the red bottle), my mani did great, no chips after 3 days of wear (when I wanted to change colors). I'm sure if I wanted …Read more

Polishes - NYC New York Color - Quick Dry Nail Polish - East Village 206

Jul/21/2011

In the bottle, East Village looks gorgeous! However, on the nail it's just way too sheer. I'm sure it's pretty layered, but I guess I was hoping for this color to just be more opaque.

Other than the sheerness, I didn't have any other issues with the polish or brush. The color isn't streaky, it dries quickly, and the brush is an acceptable size (not too …

This is a great color, it could be better. Like other reviewers, it takes quite a few coats to reach bottle color (which is a soft light blue with a scattered holographic effect). I did four coats the first time I used this polish, and while it did dry quickly, it chipped the next day.

However, where the real potential lies is when you layer using this polish. I layered this on top of …

This was my first insta-dri nail polish that I ever bought (other than the top coat in the red bottle) and I am very very happy with it! This is the prettiest sky/pastel blue that I've seen and It goes perfectly in ONE COAT! Gah!

The brush takes some getting used to, but once I learned how to maneuver it on my nail, I was pretty pleased. If you didn't know, the brush on these …

I'm a sucker for greens, so when I saw this in the store, I was immediately drawn to it. This one doesn't disappoint. It's a bright apple green with a gorgeous gold shimmer. The brush works well, and the polish does dry quite quickly.

I can't remember exactly how long this wore on me, the last time I wore it was when I was pretty rough on my nails (washing dishes …

I am in love with the Xtreme Wear line of polishes. It's everything that I desire in a polish. Great brush, great formula, excellent price, and fun colors. Two coats and you're all set!

Green with envy is a fun lime green that immediately caught my eye when I saw it in the store. It's gone on my toes once, and I finally took it off after three weeks-one month due to …

Jul/21/2011

I cannot express how much I love this polish. On a trip back home to visit my family in the states (I reside in Canada for the time being), I was extremely excited to pick up some sinful colors! I always loved the brand since I was a kid and I decided to hit up walgreens to pick out a few colors to add to my new collection of polishes.

I found Mint Apple and Boogie Nights (a coral …

As a huge jelly fan, when I found out this was a jelly, I picked it up right away! I personally really enjoyed this nail polish. I love the color and more importantly love that it's not completely opaque. Of course, the opinion of seeing VNL differs from person to person.

I didn't have too many problems with application. Sure, it's a bit streaky, but each additional …
