Really Good and Really Cheap!
I have Bijou Blue (443D) and Caribbean Frost (446C). I got these way before I was on Beautylish, way before I even knew how cool these little guys are. After learning they were on the site, I looked at my polish collection- and there they were! So I finally tried them out, after they had been sitting in my nail polish container for eons- and I like them! Bijou Blue I chose for my toes- its a bright, shimmery blue- almost metallic. It looks gorgeous on, and has lasted for at least a week or maybe less. By a week's time I noticed some chipping at the edge of my nails and the tips. It took maybe two coats because these need some time to be worked up to opacity, they are iridescent and might need layers. It didn't take long to dry and the brush made for easy application. I chose a color not on the database that I had also purchased with Bijou awhile back- Caribbean Frost- for my finger nails. In the bottle this seemed more teal, but once worn, it shone a beautiful green-blue, almost frosty green alpine. Such a gorgeous color! It seemed more opaque than the toe shade but got some bumps (air bubbles?). After a week or more it flaked off at the edges and tips. They both shine brilliantly and have relatively good staying power, for lacking a base and top coat (Not there yet). I was so taken by them I found a bunch others at my fave Rite Aid for 99 cents- so I snagged Casting Call (462), Blue Moon (466), and Rain Check (464). Casting Call is a beige, warm dusky rose, Blue Moon is a blue-black ultramarine navy with a hidden blue green shimmer and Rain Check is grey-blue lilac with a milky, moonstone/opal shimmer. They are so beautiful- I tend to dress in muted, desaturated colors of teal, navy, purples and browns and warm earth tones and they fit my favored color palette. These are great back to school colors that will go with any outfit! And if these are as good as the others ones I'm in luck. I don't mind that they might chip a little earlier than usual- it just means I get to wear the next coolest shade! These three are so unique and beautiful!
Nothing Wrong with it
I have some colors that aren't options on here but they are literally ONE COATERS! The coveted polishes in a busy and impatient girl's collection. It just needs one coat and you're done. They dry at a normal pace not quick dry. The brush is good quality and the polish isn't sticky upon application and levels out. The price is awesome too.
I have a massive collection of this brand because I always went out and bought the newest colors, but some of the first colors I got in this brand were Black Creme, Dreamy Poppy, Red Red, and Lavender Creme. These got me hooked by not only the colors but the quality. And the awesome thing is is that these are really cheap! (if you look in the right places).
This is by far my most favorite nail varnish available in drug stores! It retails at only $2.99 (CAD) and is a "fast-dry" product--which above being fairly true to form, is mighty convenient. You can paint a whole hand with only one or two dips, also the texture is amazing, it's rich and velvety but not to thick in consistency.
It was love at first coat; but then I applied a second, and fell even more in love with this polish! It has superior coverage, it's fairly opaque and super awesome metallic-y/sparkle shine! It's like liquid chrome! it's wonderful!
I will be purchasing many more of these in the future:)
omg these are amazing! i only had a few bucks so i chose this one since it was 99cents. before i never like wet n wold nail polishes but wow these are great! with one dip you can do a whole hand! and you only need one coat per nail. the texture is thick but not too thick so it goes on really well!
