Polishes - China Glaze - Cha Cha Cha

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/02/2016

Cha Cha Cha is a grassy green full of bright yellow-green shimmer. I love how summery and glowy it is. The formula is thin even for China Glaze, and I needed three coats for opacity, but I found it went on evenly and was easy to control. It's a little brush-strokey, but not bad, especially as it was easy to put on.

Polishes - China Glaze - Liquid Leather

5.0

Apr/25/2016

Liquid leather is a really great, opaque black polish. Maybe there are variations in the formula out there, but I find it really easy to get a nice even opaque finish in a single coat. I can hardly imagine using 3 coats. It's perfect as a base for nail art or layering glitter/holo polishes - I don't wear black on its own much so the single coat cuts down on the time it takes to do a …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Essie - Matte About You

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2016

I looked at a ton of reviews and comparisons of matte top coats before picking this one, and I am not disappointed. It makes my nails super matte, and I love the effect over shimmery and metallic polishes. I have been obsessed with trying all of my polishes in matte form ever since I bought it, and I get lots of compliments on the matte manicures.

It goes on very easily and dries …

Polishes - ZOYA - Ziv

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/31/2015

Ziv is a beautiful gold foil/metallic polish, with tiny gold flecks in the smoother foil base, giving it just a little bit of extra sparkle. It's a nice true golden color, not at all bronze-y, and it looks great on my very warm, pale skin tone. It goes on nicely and is opaque in two coats with a good drying time, but it's kind of a pain to remove. Not as bad as a full glitter polish …Read more

Polishes - SinfulColors - Nail Color - Snow Me White

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/31/2015

I generally use this white as a base for nail art, not really into the stark white nails, and it works great for that. It goes on reasonably opaque and even for me. It's not quite a one-coater if I were wearing it alone, but because I am layering other things with it, I find a single coat to be enough for my purposes. Yes, it's on the thick side, but I found it to be smooth and …Read more

Polishes - Barielle - Berry Blue

Sep/30/2015

This color is beautiful, a deep navy blue that's still a very saturated color, not dusty or grayed at all. It's very dark indoors, but not too black, and shows up much bluer in bright sunlight. It's a creme finish that dries very shiny. Application was fine, it went on smooth and fairly even, and opaque in two coats. I like the look a lot, and it wore well, 4-5 days before it …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Just Spotted the Lizard

Sep/24/2015

This is my first duochrome polish, and it makes me want so many more. I love watching the shift! The gold base color is definitely the stronger, but the green shift is there too at the right angles. The colors work well with my warm skin tone and feel very autumnal, which is great right now. The formula is thin and a bit sheer, but it applies very evenly and it dries fast. Wearing it on its own …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Fancy Pants

4.0

Aug/06/2015

Fancy Pants is a pretty blue-leaning purple with a little bit of purple/pink shimmer. It dried lighter and more purple on my nails than it looks in the bottle. I was disappointed in how subtle the shimmer was on the nail - if I'm going to wear something with shimmer or glitter I want to see it! None of this in-between stuff. Though I think I would really like a creme in the same base color …Read more

I love this color so much. It is stunning, a nice deep blue jelly with scattered silver glitter that looks just like stars in an evening sky. I can't stop staring at my nails with this on.

I had a little bit of trouble with the formula, maybe I'm just not used to jellies? I like to apply nail polish coats about as thin as I can get away with, but with this polish I …

Polishes - SinfulColors - Sinful Nailpolish in Timbleberry

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/29/2015

My bottle says Thimbleberry, I have no idea if the different names correspond to different formulas or anything else. But I have no trouble with the application on this one, it's maybe a little on the thick side but self-levels well and is opaque in two coats. The color is a very nice saturated coral-ish pink. I like wearing it with Sinful Colors Hazard for subtle monochrome nail art …Read more
