I've seen Revlon Starry Pink/Popular quite often on NB, and decided to pick one up for myself. I layered it over Essie French Affair, and I must say, I'm not that impressed. All the glitters sank into the base polishes and look discolored. It's also a bit of a top coat eater, will probably need to add a layer of gelous on top to smooth out. When I count all the coats that goes …Read more

Very cool-toned cotton candy pink. Color-wise, i'm not in love, especially on my slightly warm skin tone. Application was a bit streaky, I applied 2 coats very carefully for opacity. Overall, I wouldn't buy this again, not very flattering on me, and the color is too Barbie-esque.

I actually bought this before I really got into polishes. It's a gorgeous coral cream, perfect for the summer. I really like it as a pedi. Application is amazing, super smoother, no streaks, completely opaque after two thin coats.

Wow, I'm amazed at how easy this applies, one of the few non-streaky whites! The color is a soft, milky sheer, very subtle and understated. I suspect with careful application, 1 or 2 coats will be more than enough. But I was in a hurry, and applied 3 coats for complete opacity. Definitely recommend this over a lot of the Essie PITA whites.

Ugh what a streaky mess. The color is gorgeous, soft white with subtle silver shimmers, but even after 4 coats, still streaky and not completely opaque.

I got this in Cheery Me basically for free with a BOGO 50% and $2 off coupon. Surprisingly, I find myself reaching for this quite a bit, especially when I'm wearing a red lipstick. Cherry Me has just enough color for a red lipstick touch up. It's also quite moisturizing and not too waxy. I do wish that it comes in a sexier package, I feel 8 years old when I whip this out.

I was so drawn to this deep, rich, jewel-tone green, I finally picked it up during a Walgreens sale. In the bottle, it looks like a metallic green, but on the nails, the green-blue shimmer becomes a lot more apparent. However, it was so much sheerer than I expected, a good 3 coats before it was opaque.

Shocking electric blue, got it per NB recommendation. Gorgeous color, adds that pop to any spring/summer outfit. However, because it is a metallic finish, I can see some brush strokes, hence 4 lippies.

I picked up this little gem after seeing it recommended on NB. It's a sheer, pale soft pink with gold shimmers. I wore 2 coats over 1 coat Essie Marshmallow, and it's the most classy and delicate mani. I feel like a princess when I have this on =)
