Sally Hansen Tag Ur It

Sally Hansen Tag Ur It is a recent release from their Insta Dri line. I love this line with their wide brushes and unique bottle shape. 

Sally Hansen Tag Ur It has a great formula for a white creme, one of the best I've ever used in fact. Shown here at just 2 coats. We all know great white creme polishes are hard to find so I suggest going to the nearest drugstore and grabbing Tag Ur It soon!

Thanks for reading!

OPI You Don't Know Jacques!

OPI You Don't Know Jacques! was originally from their Fall 2008 La Collection de France but has since been made part of their Classics collection. It was a huge hit when released and is still a great color. Shown here at three thin coats - application was mostly good but the formula is very thin so the polish did flood my cuticles a couple of times. Still a winner though!

OPI Done Out In Deco

OPI Done Out In Deco was part of their 2009 Spring South Beach collection. It was then part of their regular lineup but has since been discontinued. I highly recommend grabbing it if you ever come across a bottle. It's one of my sister's top 5 favorite polishes of all time and she has a couple of backup bottles so she let me try it out. I understand why it's a favorite. Fantastic application for any polish, but especially for a pale creme  and a unique color. Amazing polish!

Nails Inc Hampstead Gardens

My sister has been going through her polish collection and discovered this weird but beautiful polish hiding in her stash. She's wearing Nails Inc Hampstead Gardens shown here at two easily applied coats. This shade is definitely not for everyone but it looks great with most of her wardrobe and is such a unique color. Great polish and thanks for sharing Ashley!

JIn Soon Charme


Jin Soon Charme is from their 2015 summer collection.

This is my first Jin Soon so here's information from the company about their polish line.
All JINsoon formulas are 5-free and formulated without harsh chemicals such as formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin and camphor. A high gloss nail lacquer that is long lasting with a chip-proof finish and a rapid drying time. This double patented formula delivers a long-lasting manicure with a rich and lustrous color payoff in a single coat.
Jin Soon Charme is a great color but overall I can't recommend this polish at $18 a bottle. The brush/cap is of the pop off variety with a stubby ridged handle and short brush underneath that I found awkward to use. It seems very cheap for the price. Also the bottles aren't quite full size, another reason I can't justify the $18 price tag.
The formula was typical of many pale cremes, streaky and not very self-leveling. Charme is shown here at three fairly thick coats. You can find a similar color for half the price and the bottle and rest of the packaging don't add any value. Am I missing something ladies? I'll pay for a high end product that feels high end (I have Rouge Louboutin!) but this line doesn't make the cut.

Sally Hansen Quick Brick

Sally Hansen Quick Brick is part of a limited edition set of Sally Hansen's Insta Dri polish line. Quick Brick applied like a dream and is shown here at two coats but I probably could have gotten by with just one. I absolutely love the Insta Dri brushes because they are wide and curved and just so easy to use. Great classic red cremes aren't hard to find but if you don't already have a few in your stash go pick this one up at your local drugstore!

LVX Indigo Bleu

LVX Indigo Bleu is from their Spring 2013 collection. This is my first polish from LVX. Here's a little about their brand directly from their website.
LVX brings you luxury and fashion without compromise. We are dedicated to launching the hottest collections for each season by translating the top runway colors based on emerging trends in high fashion.
Our philosophy is to fuse high fashion with nail color. We determine the top trends by closely studying thousands of runway presentations from renowned designers. Our colors are hand selected to be the top colors of the season.
Our long lasting, chip resistant and gel-like formula is free of the 5 toxic and harsh chemicals found in most common nail lacquer formulas. LVX products are formulated without the use of Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene and Camphor. We are devoted to providing you with top quality, socially responsible and vegan-friendly luxury products without compromising quality, durability and finish. 
 LVX nail lacquer is cruelty free. All products are produced in the U.S.A
LVX Indigo Bleu is a gorgeous super dark purple with blue undertones shown here at 2 easily applied coats. A very lovely color that never looks black even in low light.

However, LVX bills itself as a luxury brand and the polishes retail for $16. If I'm paying that much for a polish I want a nice bottle and brush and this one just doesn't cut it. I personally don't like pop off caps and the actual brush handle is stubby and ridged. The actual brush is cut very straight and I found the whole thing a bit difficult to use. I have other gorgeous blues that cost half the price and have nicer brushes.

Zoya Cecilia

Zoya Cecilia is from their 2015 Island Fun collection, shown here at 2 coats. It's very densely pigmented so it was a tiny bit on the thick side but still workable. I got lots of compliments on Cecilia!
