I am 500 years late in reviewing these kids. In fact, I did a complete review of them on my YouTube channel but I wanted to be sure to do a post as well. Simply put, these nail polish strips have really surprised me. They do have their up’s and down’s but considering how many funky designs they come in and how easy they are to apply ,the up’s are WAAAAY up there. Hit the jump for more.

Amor de Lacquer: China Glaze Anchors Away, part I

This collection isn’t THAT new. It has been out for a few months and while it didn’t cause a lot of fanfare in the nail polish world, I think Anchors Away was one of China Glaze’s best collections. And I’m a little delayed at reviewing it but hereeee we go! First up, the darker shades…

I haven’t blogged about them much but I loooove L.A. Colors. I always manage to spot their nail polishes in beauty stores in New York City, but I have a super hard time finding them here in Florida. But giiiiirl, when I saw this set of 4 in CVS, I almost screamed.

And it was a whooping $6! I know, right?? That’s so hot! Wait until you see these babies in action.

Amor de Lacquer: Mannequin hands for brown girls

I first heard about about mannequin nails on All Lacquered Up. And since then, I’ve looked high and low for nail polishes that look close my skin complexion. I’ve found darker ones through Nubar’s Chocolate Truffle Collection (one of the best collections, EVER!) but never one that looks close to my NW45 skin complexion. OPI’s San Tan-tonio is about as close as I’ll get.

Amor de Lacquer: Wet N Wild’s polishes. Cheap n awesome!

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

Never ever knock the power  and awesomeness of cheaper brands of polish. I find that their formulas are just as good if not better than higher end polishes. And I’ve always known that about Wet N Wild polishes. Their Fast Dry Nail Color polishes claim to not only dry in 60 seconds  but they also have what they call a ManiCurve Brush. This brush is designed with a flat rod for even liquid dispersion and a rounded bristle tip.

And the most recent collection is named after some of our favorite TV shows. Check out Everybody Loves Redmond, Teal or No Teal and Buffy the Violet Slayer.

Pretty cool lookin’ crew, uh?
