Polishes - Essie - Peach Daiquiri

Peach Daiquiri is my a staple in my polish collection. It's a gorgeous hot pink color that leans a bit coral in the right lighting. The finish is very shiny and while the polish is not a true jelly, it has some squishyness to it on the nail.

I always reach for this color because it is a bright, problem-free polish. Application is a breeze and the color is opaque with two coats …

Polishes - Orly - Shockwave

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/06/2012

Shockwave is a deep, pigmented, vibrant blue polish. I wouldn't call this a true cream because it has a bit of sheerness to it but not nearly enough to consider this a jelly either. I love this finish because it gives the blue depth and makes the color phenomenal.

The whole reason I bought this polish is because I'm a huge fan of the BBC show Doctor Who and this is the color …

Polishes - OPI - Color So Hot It Berns

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/05/2012

This is my favorite red cream. It is a bright, creamy red that compliments my NC20 skin and is perfect in any season.

Like all OPI polishes, the packaging is fantastic with the wide, flat OPI brush. This polish probably has my favorite formula out of all of my OPI's because it is absolutely flawless. I can usually get away with one coat and it dries super fast. The color …

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - French Affair

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/05/2012

French Affair is a cool, bubblegum pink cream polish. It's super cute and girly on my nails but I have such a love-hate relationship with it, mostly because of the formula issues.

The polish applies very streaky and typically takes 4 costs to even out. It also has an unusually long dry time and tends to bubble because of the awkward formula consistency. The polish itself is very …

Polishes - OPI - Yodel Me On My Cell

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/05/2012

Yodel me on my cell is a dark, blue-leaning teal color. In the sunlight there is a much lighter teal shimmer.

This polish is very pretty, but it isn't special. I have owned this polish for nearly two years and only just used it this week. The formula and packaging are spectacular and it has a very shiny finish but the shimmer lacks depth and reminds me of car paint …

This polish has such a great formula! It is a medium toned pink with golden glassy flecks in it. It dries to a smooth, shiny finish. With a top coat, this polish lasts up to two weeks on my nails.

It has a fantastic application and is opaque in two coats. If I'm in a hurry to do my nails, I always use this for a no-fuss mani/pedi.

Anyone who is looking to branch out …

I really think this might be the best red polish ever.

It has a nice, red jelly base packed with many bits of red glitter. It takes 3 coats to be opaque and it has gorgeous depth. In the sunlight, my nails sparkle and almost glow. Ah, it is such a perfect color.

In high school, I wore this color on my toes for pretty much my entire senior year. I have a little less than …

Polishes - China Glaze - Shocking Pink

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/05/2012

Shocking Pink is such a great color but the formulation on the polish is TERRIBLE. It is a streaky mess that takes 5-6 coats to even out. The polish itself is very brittle and it chips terribly within the first day of wearing. It is a neon so it dries quickly to a matte finish but it looks lovely under a coat of seche vite.

I first got this as a pedicure and loved it so much I bought …

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter - Creamsicle

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/05/2012

I'm surprised to see so much Creamsicle hate going on here, I actually quite enjoy the shade. I do have naturally fair skin so the lipstick is the perfect nude lip for me and I like the glossy finish.

Application isn't easy. I always apply a lip balm before using Creamsicle because on dry lips it does highlight imperfections. I also need two or three coats for it to become …

I am absolutely in love with this lip butter! It looks so femine and cute on my lips and it goes with many of my makeup looks! I do think that the color would cause problems for some skin tones. I have NC20 skin with pale blue eyes and naturally rosy lips and cheeks. I was afraid the cool tones in this lip stick would clash with me but it looks great!

This is a cool-toned medium pink …
