Polishes - OPI - Grand Central Carnation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2011

OPI's Grand Central Carnation is a very warm-toned rosy medium berry pink polish with a subtle silver shimmer. My fair complexion with slight yellow undertones tends to give this polish a slightly peachy-rose tone which is not flattering to me. The silver shimmer shows up very well in the bottle but does not translate quite as well to the nails. Application was extremely good with total …Read more

Polishes - Rescue Beauty Lounge - -- Scrangie

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2011

Rescue Beauty Lounge's Scrangie is a medium purple polish with a heavy teal green/blue iridescent shimmer. The application on this was absolutely horrible with streaking and bald patches on the first and second coats but by the third everything was opaque and smooth. The drying time was average but it did seem to try to a semi-dull finish. The color on this polish is stunning outdoors and …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Tickle My Triangle

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/20/2011

China Glaze's Tickle My Triangle is from the Kaleidoscope Collection and is a medium pink/light fuschia very blingy scatter holographic polish. The holographic particles are multicolored and larger than the OPI Designer Series holos and more sparkly. Like the OPI, the polish goes on smooth as silk and not like a glitter. Application was a little on the iffy side with bald patches if you …Read more

Polishes - Orly - Royal Velvet

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/17/2011

Orly's Royal Velvet is a shimmery dark purple polish with a very heavy blue flash/duochrome effect. In some lights it's blue and in others dark violet. There is also very slight dark pink shimmer that is hardly visible; however, what this shimmer does is add a not-so-flattering bruised look around the cuticle area on my light complexion with slight yellow undertones. This bruised …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Draped in Velvet

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/13/2011

China Glaze's Draped in Velvet is a rich medium-dark plum/magenta shimmery polish. In the bottle it looks like there are microparticles of pink, silver, and blue that do not translate to the nail as glitter but do give it depth, warmth, and shimmer. Application was perfectly smooth and opaque in two coats (one could probably even get away with one coat). Drying timed seemed a little …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Nubar - Diamont Top Coat

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/13/2011

Nubar's Diamont is supposed to be a quick-dry top coat that rivals Seche Vite and Poshe. However, this did not dry quickly (15 minutes and still tacky) and an hour later was still dentable. I also ended up with bubbling on most of my nails with this top coat and sheet marks. The only upside is that it does give a thick, glass-like finish and there was no shrinkage (which occurs often with …Read more

Polishes - Nubar - Prize

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/04/2011

Nubar Prize is a medium redded pink-based polish with multicolored scattered holographic glitter. This looks a little more red in the bottle than it does on the nail. The application was opaque in two coats but this does dry very dull and gritty so a couple of layers of thick topcoat are a must in order to make the glitter "pop" and smooth out the roughness. Even with two coats of …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Russian to a Party

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/01/2011

OPI's Russian to a Party is a warm browned-red polish with a highly-shiny, shimmery finish. In the bottle, one would think there would be a gold element to this polish as it seems to have a gold shimmer; however, this does not translate to the nail. The gold microshimmer just seems to add a little bit of extra depth and warmth to this polish. It's a perfect fall shade of red. On my …Read more

Polishes - CLARINS - #230

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/18/2011

Clarins #230 has now entered the world of unicorns, rainbows, and leprechauns - unbelievable, hard to find, and absolutely magical! In the bottle the colors range from blue to purple to plum to gold to amber to red - you name it, it's in there! The microfine glitter changes to all these different colors depending on lighting and bottle angle. On the nail the base color is basically either …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Anklets of Amethyst

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/17/2011

China Glaze's Anklets of Amethysts is a sparkly semi-foil finish medium plum/purple/pink polish. (After three coats it's the exact color of an amethyst stone.) This could be considered the lighter but very slightly more foil little sister of FingerPaints Decked with Dazzle. Anklets of Amethysts has a shimmery foil finish with super-fine microglitter in silver, pink, lavender, and …Read more
