Sally Hansen’s Pink Platinum colorfoil

Sally Hansen’s Pink Platinum colorfoil

Friday at 4:15 PM: Nice soft-but-not-pastel metallic pink. This formula applied very evenly, and didn’t show brushstrokes as strongly as Liquid Gold (though it does show them a little.) The color was also even, not streaky - definite win here. This is similar to China Glaze’s Admire, but this is just a bit cooler and perhaps a tiny bit deeper. They are both close, though. An advantage to this polish is that it’s thick enough to be easily used in stamping. Admire and the…

Sally Hansen’s Liquid Gold colorfoil

Sally Hansen’s Liquid Gold colorfoil

Friday at 1:15 PM: The formula on this one is a bit streaky, and doesn't spread too well. It acts more like a frost, than a metallic! The streakiness is a disappointment as well. I was hoping to have another good metallic gold for nail stamping. Sadly, it doesn't look like this one is up to the job. (I did a second manicure and shook the polish up a WHOLE lot more, and the streakiness was reduced...but it didn't go away, and the visible…

Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain in Tropical Frenzy (03)

Jordana’s Twist n Shine Balmstain in Tropical Frenzy (03)

Friday at 7:15 AM: Not a hot pink, not neon, but…definitely the brightest shade in this collection. I like the fact that it isn’t quite as intense a color as I thought it might be, though. It makes it…

Beauty from the Earth’s Pewter

Beauty from the Earth’s Pewter

Thursday at 4:15 PM: More ‘charcoal’ than ‘silver’ in this color - good for contouring and lining on just about anyone.

Beauty from the Earth’s Belle of the Ball

Beauty from the Earth’s Belle of the Ball

Thursday at 1:15 PM: Similar to Playful, which was brought back when BFTE reopened; but Belle of the Ball is a little deeper, a little cooler, closer to the “purple” side of periwinkle. Belle is also a matte finish,…

Beauty from the Earth’s Playful

Beauty from the Earth’s Playful

Thursday at 10:15 AM: I love this color! It’s quite a little deeper, but no less vivid, than Stila’s Periwinkle smudge stick. The foiled application isn’t my favorite, but that often seems to happen with matte-finish shadows…and from nearly…

Concrete Minerals’ Thrash

Concrete Minerals’ Thrash

Thursday at 7:15 AM: Such a gorgeous shade of emerald! And no chalkiness, it doesn’t stain nor start fading. When I use this as a liner with other, darker greens on my lid, I like how it makes my…

Zoya’s Brooklyn

Zoya’s Brooklyn

Wednesday at 4:15 PM: The successor to last season’s pale yellow glass fleck, Piaf (which was discontinued after just under a year in rotation.) All of the polishes in the Awaken collection have good, even coverage. The bonus is…

Color Club’s Sweetpea

Color Club’s Sweetpea

Wednesday at 1:14 PM: This polish attracted me because it was a deeper, cooler pink that would nicely transition from winter into spring and through summer. I was glad to find that the formula was thicker than Hydrangea Kiss…
