First an oldie:
I officially don't like the thick formula or fat brush on Milani 'Quick Teal' but I love the colour. It really stood out against those leopard print shoes and was a welcomed change from the predictable red polish paring.
Trust Collins to expand their Sally Hansen line the moment after I said I have more than enough nail polish. The Complete Salon Manicure line is raved about on YouTube so you know I had to try it.

'All Fired Up'
I got 'All Fired Up' and while I wasn't blown away with the colour, the formula has the same 'self leveling' properties that Essie polishes do. This is a two coat formula, one if you're a Pro. To make the colour more appealing to me I used my Northern Lights Out The Door top coat. Listen, the fine holographic glitter in that will take any blah polish to Old Years Night ready.
Speaking of Essie:
'Bikini So Teeny'
This entire post was awaiting me using this. Many many thanks to Nikita of Beautiful & Unspolit for the hook up. Finally getting to use the infamous 'Bikini So Teeny' has made me realise two things: 1) Essie's formula has surely come a long way since this collection and, 2) I need to stop painting my nails at 3 a.m. This colour is a gorgeous cornflower blue but the formula is problematic.
I tried to walk away, but I remember someone saying on YouTube that 'Wintermint' was a dupe for a Deborah Lippmann polish. Then the Temptress Victoria told me the same thing. I couldn't resist. These Parfumerie polishes retain their scent after you put on top coat and even through numerous hand washings. Interesting. As with any nail polish line, I'd encourage you to get the ones you find most interesting.
Which leads me nicely into...
'Peace & Love & OPI'
From my February haul, you would have seen I picked up a couple rare ones. The photo above is doing this duo chrome beauty 'Peace & Love & OPI' no justice. I know I made the porn noises when I saw the colour shifts this polish has. Imma have to hide this one when Katrina comes over. She loves colours like this.
Something else I tried recently was 'Coin Flip' from the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear line. I'm not a stranger to this range and I'm very intrigued to try more. Two coats yields full opacity or you could just use one as a topper on a solid colour. As a stand alone polish it just screams "GLAM".
