Sinful Colors Hazard

I haven't done a review in what seems like forever. Sorry :P
So this is Sinful Colors's Hazard polish. It's sort of a pinky coral type color. I thought it was a pretty color and girly too. I love Sinful Colors nail polish because it is so cheap and most of the time last a good while. This one lasted a decent amount of time. I'd say about 2 or 3 days and it started to chip. Definitely not as long as some of the Essie, China Glaze, or OPI nail polishes I have tried, but what do you expect for $1.99? I thought it did a pretty good job when it came to quality and longevity when it came to how much it cost.
Overall: I would say this was a good color to use. I loved the color and the quality was satisfactory.

OPI Vodka and Caviar

I got this nail polish from the grocery store I now work at because they have some OPI nail polishes and they're all cheaper than what you could get at a salon. I paid maybe 40 cents less?
I loved the color of this polish. It's a vibrant candy apple red. The name amuses me too. I hated the longevity of it. It did not last long at all. I notice I have been saying this about a lot of nail polishes I have gotten recently. I need to break this trend somehow. Anyways, it chipped like the 2nd day I had it on. It started to fade on a lot of the nails too during that time. I was so disappointed with this. I returned it and I got my money back though.
Overall I would not recommend this polish. I guess I will just have to search for another pretty candy apple red color till I find one that truly pleases me. It chipped very early which was something I was not happy with at all!

China Glaze Watermelon Rind

Don't mind the messed up Konad nail stamp on my ring finger nail. I got bored one day and decided to do that and it didn't turn out right...oh well.
I had some problems with this nail polish. The main problem I had was the longevity. It did not last very long and started to fade on the tips after about 2 or 3 days. I love the color though. It is a glittery blue green color. I've mentioned before I think about how I hate glitters because they are so hard to get off, but with the China Glaze glitter laquers I have gotten recently they are not hard to remove at all! I was highly impressed about how easy this was to get off despite the fact that it's a glitter polish. I would recommend that they change the formula or something for it because the longevity is definitely something I was not as happy with as I could have been. I got many compliments on the color though so that is a good thing!
Overall: I would recommend this because of the color and how easy it is to remove, but just beware that it starts to fade on the tips after about 2 or 3 days.

China Glaze Peachy Keen

This is the final nail polish that I ordered in the mail recently. I have to say for the most part I was disappointed with this polish. I ordered this color not thinking about how it already looks close to the color of Essie's Tart Deco, which I already own. I have to say this color looks just like it minus that Tart Deco has a slightly more pink tone to it. 
The second thing that upset me was that this was very streaky. I put on two coats and it was still streaky. I would have put on three coats but I didn't have enough time. That was a downside to this also.
The Third thing that upset me was the size of the brush. I don't know if I just got a bad batch or something and the brushes were made slightly larger, but it did not make for an easy application. I have other China Glaze nail polishes and none of them have a brush that was this thick. Also the formula was a little thick as well which also made it more of a challenge to apply.
Overall: I would not recommend this and I would say it's not worth the money. If you're looking for something of similar color that is a better quality I would have to direct you to Essie's Tart Deco.

China Glaze Dorothy Who?

I got this from Sally's for 4.99 I think. Actually my mom bought it for me, so thanks mom! :)
I did LOVE the color. It was such a rich gittery blue, and even though it was a glitter it wasn't hard to take off at all! But like the China Glaze Adore review I did, this polish was bittersweet as well. It did tend to chip fast. I had chipping about 2 days later at the tips of my nails so that was really disappointing. I did love the color though. I have always loved vibrant blue glitters but I always hated how they were so hard to take off, but this one is completely different. I loved how easy it was to take off. Well I had to lay the nail polish soaked cotton ball on my nail for a few seconds, but after that it was completely easy to take off. If only this polish lasted a little longer it would be perfect! I used the Seche Vite top coat and it still chipped within 2 days. So that was sad. 
Overall: The color is fantastic, but the longevity was nothing to rave about at all.Oh! I also forgot to mention it took 3 coats to get to this opaque shade of the blue. After 2 coats I still felt like I needed one coat, which really was not a problem.

China Glaze Adore

This polish was bittersweet. I got this from Amazon. This is one of the other polishes I bought along with Lemon Fizz. I was indifferent about this polish. I got this for about $4. The price was good, application was easy and the consistency was good. Even the drying time was pretty minimal. I love the color! Absolutely love! This color has a metallic sheen to it and is definitely a gorgeous color! I think this is from the Romantique collection? I really should do my research more. 
The one major problem I had with this polish is that is chipped very quickly. It was chipping by the next day! I have one finger where it is cracked but hasn't chipped off yet, so I am hoping I can maybe save that piece with some top coat. Like I said before though this polish chipped so quickly! Even with my Seche Vite top coat...yeah that's right! I finally got Seche Vite top coat! But that's not what this blog post is about. 
Overall: I loved the color! Gorgeous, but the quality is pretty bad. Chipping happened the next day. It's a bittersweet type of feeling.
