Polishes - China Glaze - Wagon Trail

Nov/14/2010

I wear a lot of black, brown, and dark colors, but this is one of my all time favorites. It's a very multi-dimensional color that changes whether you're indoors or out. If you're tired of plain black or the browns, Wagon Trail is one to try. It's a deep olive brown/black with shimmering highlights - extremely interesting. Application and wear is decent, but it's the color …Read more

I dislike the packaging with the tall bottles, but have several SH Xtreme Wear polishes. This one, however, was way gooier than most, so application sucked. Also, it was harder to remove than others in the same line. I probably had the misfortune of buying a bad batch, but whatever. Not totally in love with the color, but it was alright. Wear was good, probably due to the fact it was thicker than …Read more

Hate the brush, hate the tall bottle, but love the color. This was the first "gray" I tried and still my favorite, despite having about a dozen. The wear is very good, the color is even - no complaints other than the packaging. Will definitely repurchase, and probably is one of the few colors I'll use to the bottom of each bottle. Love it, and wear it often.

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure - Gray by Gray

Nov/14/2010

Not a fan of the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure brushes, but I'm getting better with them. I purchased this online hoping for more of a deep gray, but this more slate blue than gray. All the same, it's a really nice, neutral kind of blueish gray if you're okay with more of a blueish hue. The wear was great, though I did use a basecoat and topcoat. (I usually wear a basecoat …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure - Red Zin

Nov/14/2010

The fat brushes on the Sally Hansen Salon Manicure line don't necessarily agree with me, but I'm getting better with them. For the price (retails around $7.50) I would like a little more manicure-friendly brush, instead of something to paint the house with, but I digress. Red Zin is a gorgeous, deep red color without traces of orange, blue, or purple. This is a true dark red, almost …Read more

Polishes - SinfulColors - Call You Later

3.0

Nov/14/2010

This is a gorgeous color by itself or over other polish. Application was great, and the wear was incredible. However, this was the hardest polish - even of other glitter polishes - I've ever had to remove. I don't know if it was some unique combination of the polish underneath (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Green With Envy), or binding with the topcoat, or what, but I practically had to use …Read more

Polishes - SinfulColors - Sinful Professionals - Black on Black

Nov/14/2010

I wear dark and black-based polishes a lot and this particular brand and color performs as well as any brand I've tried (Orly, OPI, China Glaze, Rimmel, etc.) This is a true black and covers in one coat, for real (barring application mishaps). I buy this over and over again because it never disappoints. If you want black, you got it. For, like, around two whole dollars. Add a decent topcoat …Read more

Top/Base Coats - SinfulColors - Sinful Colors Professional Basecoat

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2010

This is a pretty inexpensive (1.99 at Walgreen's) product and is fairly reliable as a basecoat. It offers very minimal smoothing/ridge filling, and dries relatively fast. The dried color is an extremely sheer beige/nude. By itself it does scratch easily, but once polish is applied, it seems to perform satisfactorily. It doesn't seem to block stains very well when used with red or …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Maybelline New York - Express Finish Base & Top Coat #10

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2010

I bought a passel of base and topcoats because I've been looking for products that dry hard and fast, yet offer the protection and coverage I'm looking for. Maybelline's Express Finish Base & Topcoat is just... meh. I used it as a basecoat, and while it seemed to dry relatively fast (probably 1 - 1 1/2 minutes), it still had a soft texture that lent itself to dents, even though …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/14/2010

I've tried several drug store so-called fast dry topcoats, and this is by far the best. It dries the hardest, the fastest. I generally apply two coats of polish, minimum, followed by a minute or two drying time, then apply my topcoat. After applying the SH Insta-Dri topcoat within just one or two minutes I can survive minor bumps and scuffs with nary a dent or scratch to my nails. The shine …Read more
