Pretty pretty! Once again, my camera cannot take pictures of reds though. Strangely, the bottle picture is fine, but the nail picture has turned cherry red as always, I don’t get it! This polish is yet another that proves that I was entirely wrong in my dislike of Essie-this and every other Essie I’ve tried since deciding they sucked has just been lovely.

This is of course a base of Barielle Out-Gray-Geous, konaded with plate konaded with plate 64 and Barielle U-Concrete-Me.
This is not good. I was trying for something subtle with the two different gray finishes, but I don’t like the plate, I think. It just looks…sloppy.

Suntini was a random polish I picked out when I made my big Barielle order a while back, and I really didn’t expect to like it this much! It’s a seriously bright orangy red, and I really love it. Actually I’ve loved all the Barielle reds I got. Sadly, my camera is incapable of taking pictures of red polish.
Oh, and this particular polish wasn’t one of the crazy horribly thick Barielles, by the way.

Very nice. I’ve gotten away from wearing only mauve polishes lately, but I really like this one that I picked up on clearance at Ulta.
Cremes bore me, though, so I added CND Effects Crimson Sparkle. The Effect is very apparent in real life, but I couldn’t seem to get a picture that really captured that very well.

I LOVE this color. LOVE. It is the prettiest green ever, and I am so happy with it!! I even liked it well enough to apply the four coats that were required for opacity, and it didn’t even bug me!

Pink Forever is your standard Barbie Pink. I have others that I like better.
I added a coat of Amethyst Sparkle too, but it completely wouldn’t show up in any picture I took. It didn’t really show up on my nails either, so then I covered it with a coat of Copper Shimmer, which was much better. However, it wouldn’t show up in the pictures either.

Here are two very similar polishes that my eye always passes over whenever I’m scanning my collection for a polish I feel like using, because – well, they’re kind of ugly. They’re just so bright and not really me. They’re both very old also – notice the slightly different bottle on the Pure Ice one!
Wild Thing is a yellowy chartreuse that took four streaky, draggy coats. Yuck.

And now for the zillionth tiffany blue polish comparison currently on the internet!
Here we have the regulars: Nina Ultra Pro In A Tiff, China Glaze For Audrey, and Diamond Cosmetics Oh, Tiff!
For Audrey provided the best coverage, of course (China Glaze yay!), with Oh, Tiff! providing the worst.
In A Tiff – 3 coats, a hint of shimmer
For Audrey – 3 coats, could’ve easily stopped at 2, creme
Oh, Tiff! – 4 coats for complete opacity, creme

I really like this Konad I did today! I often have trouble finding colors that work together for Konading, but I think these work really well – I like monotone Konads the best, I think. This is Diamond Cosmetics Oh, Tiff! and Barielle Sweet Addiction, with plate 63. With the two colors right next to each other, the final result turned out much more green than Oh, Tiff! normally is.
