I’m a wee bit late in reviewing this collection but please don’t hate the player. Hate her nails. My nails have been crackin’ so badly for the past few months that I haven’t even been inspired to polish my nails. They are getting a bit better now and so I’m back with a nail polish collection that has been out for quite some time but still worth bloggin’ about. This is a massive collection of 12 polishes and so I’ll be doing 6 at a time. First up, the darker and vampy shades.
Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window is a dark olive cream and is one of those fugly shades that I surprisingly like.
Get in the Expresso Lane is a rich dark chocolate brown cream but my camera can’t seem to get an accurate shot of it. In the bottle it looks like more of a murky brown.
French Quarter For Your Thoughts is a cool-toned pale grey cream and not entirely unique but will be even more stunning when topped off with your favorite glitter topcoat. And please pardon my cracking cuticles. I told you my nails are goin’ through some thangs…
Road House Blues is an inky dark blue cream and wow, I am in love with this kid. It’s one of those blues that can almost look black but when you catch it in the light, be ready to be blown away.
A-Taupe the Space Needle is a dark taupe cream with olive undertones and another shade that I would consider fuguly. I don’t know, maybe polishes like this just aren’t flattering on my skin tone. What do you think?
Suzi Takes the Wheel is a pale grey cream and at first glance, it almost looks like French Quarter For Your Thoughts. My eyes may be playing tricks on me but I think FQFYR looks to have a little more green in it.
My favs? Definitely Road House Blues and Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window. Road House Blues, I thought, would be streaky but it didn’t give me any problems. I used 2 coats for each polish but when I don’t think a 3rd coat would hurt.
What do you think? See any you like?
