Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Jessica - Custom Color - Barely Blueberry #729

Barely Blueberry = barely a polish. Like its sister Strawberry Shake It, the formula is watery and streaky. I also think it's a poor stand-alone polish, as you'd need 4 coats to try to even out the color and reach opacity. Long drying time too. The color is a pale, white-based pastel blue creme, and it dries to a medium gloss. This chipped on several nails within a couple hours of wear …Read more

I bought this because I love pastels. This is a very pale, warm pink creme with a gloss finish. Besides the color not being the best with my cool skin tone, I'll only be able to use this with a glitter topper. It just doesn't look good as a stand-alone polish. The formula was watery and streaky, and it still wasn't opaque at 3 coats. This brand is a real disappointment. There are …Read more

This is a stark white creme polish that dries to a medium gloss. Being streaky, 3 coats are needed to even out the color. Two coats are adequate if you're topping with glitter or a SH Fuzzy Coat. Be sure to let this dry well in between coats or it will be gummy; it takes a long time to dry. This is my first white polish so I have nothing to compare it to. I put 2 coats of SH Wool Knot (Fuzzy …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Sugar Coat Textured Nail Color - Sweetie (#400)

Sweetie is a light yellow color that pops; it has no glitter. This polish dries to a matte, 'sugary' texture, opaque in 2 coats. I didn't find the finish rough at all. In fact it had a pleasing feel. I always use a base coat and top coat, and I did this here as well. Removal isn't a problem if you let the remover sit on the nail and do its job to dissolve, just like for …Read more

This is a light, murky green jelly polish with small & medium pink & blue metallic holo glitter. It's translucent after 4 coats, easily showing VNL, but it has an interesting squishy jelly finish. It could also be used over a solid base coat, but I really liked it on its own. The glitter coverage is light to medium after 4 coats; be sure to let this dry well in between coats. It has …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - For Audrey

I ordered this online and when I first saw it I was very disappointed with the color in the bottle. It looked like a dull, dusty blue. The online swatches looked much prettier. I was skeptical to do a full mani because I really didn't like it, but on my nails it looked so much different. I compared my nails to one of my Tiffany bags, and the color was indeed a true Tiffany blue. It was easy …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Nail Lacquer - Re-Fresh Mint

Comparing my For Audrey with Re-Fresh Mint definitely shows their difference, in that Re-Fresh Mint is a beautiful light mint green, not too bold or too bright. It doesn't lean towards blue like For Audrey; they're not at all similar. I had been looking for the perfect light mint for my fair, cool complexion, and I'm delighted with this. This is a creme, and it dries to a nice …Read more

Polishes - Nubar - Orange Cream

I said that yes I would buy this again, only because the color is just what I had been looking for. It's a light but not pastel creamsicle color. Most oranges are too bold and tough to wear with my fair, cool complexion. This has quite the yellow undertone which is very complementary for me. It dries to a medium glossy finish, and I like the grip of the brush handle, but the brush is a bit …Read more

This is a glitter polish containing shapes of diamonds, moons, and stars, as well as tiny sprinkles of holographic glitter in a clear base. Looks good in the bottle, but it's a nightmare to use. Pretty well zero glitter payoff. I had to fish out each of the bigger shapes from the bottle using a cotton bud. A real nuisance, and the effect wasn't even that great. Also, I had to tap down …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Fuzzy Coat Textured - Wool Knot (700)

I bought this because I saw an online swatch and thought it was cute. Wool Knot has very small turquoise and white matte bar glitter in a clear base. It looks kind of ugly in the bottle. I've applied it over a bold pink base color which is like the swatch I saw. From a little distance, over the pink it looks a bit like a purple mosaic effect so is interesting. It looks really pretty over a …Read more
