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.

Zoya Daisy

Zoya Daisy is from their Spring 2015 Delight collection.
Zoya Daisy looks like lemon drop candy with turquoise micro-shimmer. I love it! Shown here at two coats; it could probably use a third but the formula is great, especially for a yellow polish.

Revlon Banana Blaze

Yellow jelly polishes are so strange looking but I love them anyway! This is 3 easily applied coats of Revlon Banana Blaze. It's a sunshine yellow jelly with sparse silver glitter. I know it doesn't look great with my skin tone but Banana Blaze is still a keeper since it's so unique! I'll have to try layering it over some other colors some day.

Sation Lemon Pearl


Sation bottles are oval with thick glass bottoms. The new brushes are great for ladies like me that love wide brushes. You can purchase Sation's Big 3 Free polishes at their website. Sation Lemon Pearl is from their limited edition collection, California Gleamin', available now.

Sation Lemon Pearl looks like the middle of a lemon creme cookie. Shown here at 2 coats with a fantastic formula for a yellow polish. It's got a bit of shimmer but reads as a creme on the nail. I love it!

Sation Abbacadazzle

You can purchase Sation's Big 3 Free polishes at their website. Sation Abbacadazzle is from their limited edition collection, Candylandia. I love their wide brushes!


Sation Abbacadazzle is definitely a unique polish that I think people will wither love or hate! Shown here at three thin coats, it's a super squishy, sunshine yellow jelly polish. Fantastic formula especially for a yellow polish. While this is a great polish & a cool idea, it ended up reminding everyone of egg yolks & looked pretty strange on me. I'm keeping it anyway though! I think it will come in handy someday.

Zoya Darcy

Zoya Darcy is from their Summer 2013 Stunning Collection.

Zoya describes Darcy as a warm sunny yellow creme & I wholeheartedly agree. I don't have another yellow creme quite like it in my stash. Maybe not the most flattering with my skin tone but I'm keeping it anyway!
Zoya's blog recently featured a post about how to apply white & pastel creme polishes. These polishes are notorious for being rather difficult to apply well & I would include any yellow creme in this category. I decided to try the manicurist's advice of starting with a thin layer (not worrying about streaks at all), followed by a medium coat, followed by a final very thin coat to even out any streaks.
I have to say it worked quite well. The first thin coat of Darcy looked like a streaky mess but by the second medium coat, my nails only had a few streaks left. I finished with a very thin coat, just looking for streaks & I had an almost perfect finish. More importantly for me, I didn't have a ton of polish on my nails like I always do when I normally apply difficult cremes. I have a bad tendency to make my polish coats way too thick. I've been working to correct this bad habit & Zoya's suggestions will go a long way towards breaking me of this manicure mistake.

Zoya Solange


Zoya Solange is a terrific polish from the Summer 2013 Pixie Dust collection.
<p>
 Zoya PixieDust Special Texture Edition Image</p>
 Here's what Zoya has to say about this collection.

Infused with even more magic and wonder! Because everyone wants more of it... The color experts at Zoya went back to the lab and created six more beautiful, long-wearing textured, matte and sparkle Zoya PixieDust Colors for Summer 2013! The incredible and best-selling formula is sure to captivate with a magical sparkle and sugary finish like no other.

IMPORTANT PixieDust Application Information - Do not use a base coat or top coat. Apply 1-3 (for full coverage) thin coats of polish. Allow product to dry down completely matte in between layers for full textured effect. The PixieDust textured formula may take up to 10 minutes to dry completely matte. Once dry, the textured finish is long lasting, matte and ultra-glittery! 

Like all of the Pixie Dusts, I'm totally in love with Zoya Solange. It looks like they used the same exclusive pigment for this one as they did in Zoya Kerry (a new favorite!) Solange is a super cheery yellow gold texture polish with tons of sparkle. It's fantastic & unique & one of the best yellow polishes I've ever laid eyes on. Show here at just two easily applied coats; just be sure to wait several minutes between coats.

Zoya Kerry


Zoya Kerry is from the Summer 2013 Irresistible collection.

I've never seen a yellow metallic like Zoya Kerry! Shown here at three coats with no top coat. (I rarely use top coat on metallic polishes since they just don't seem to need it) Kerry catches every lit bit of light & reflects it back, making this polish practically glow even in low light. A gorgeous new favorite for sure!!

Lime Crime Crema De Limon

Lime Crime has released their first nail polish collection & they've done quite a good job. The packaging is fabulous, full of purple, glitter & unicorns. I love the bottle shape & the brushes are a bit wider than most which I always prefer. The collection, called Les Desserts d'Antoinette, contains a rainbow of pastel shades & an off white.  The formulas were all a little on the thick side & work much better with thick, as opposed to thin coats. Overall a very good first polish offering! Here's what Lime Crime has to say about their polishes.
7 pastel shades, inspired by confectionary delights from Marie Antoinette's table. Recklessly pigmented crème formula is rich, smooth and opaque in just two coats. Each bottle comes equipped with a flat, wide brush for superb control and flawless application. Never tested on animals. 3-Free.
First up we have Lime Crime Crema de Limon. A gorgeous pastel yellow with a great formula for a yellow polish. Shown here at 2 coats. One of the best yellow polishes I've tried & a definite keeper!
