I’m in Love with…LA Colors Hot Pink Nail Polish!

LA Colors Hot Pink Nail Polish Dollar Tree

I got this little gem at Dollar Tree! It’s the LA Colors Color Craze Nail Polish in the shade 516. This hot neon pink is one of my favorite colors to paint my nails -that and the color turquoise.

This nail polish performs remarkably well for a $1 nail polish. It only takes two coats to be opaque and dries quickly. It also is easy to remove and doesn’t stain my nails.

If you are looking for a fun new nail polish, I definitely recommend this one! They have lots of other fun neon colors like green and yellow!

Rimmel Red Steady Go

red steady go

I have reviewed 3 shades of Rimmel 60 Second nail polish in the past, and loved all of my previous shades. I love how this nail polish really does dry fast, and doesn’t need 20 coats to be opaque. The color I decided to grab is called Red Steady Go. It’s a fun, classic red shade of nail polish. I just love it! In this picture, I’m only wearing one coat, with no base or top coat. I like that I can paint my nails under 5 minutes, and have my nails come out actually looking nice! It costs $1.50 at Walmart, although I got it for $.50 with a coupon.  It’s a mini nail polish bottle, and only is only .27 ounces instead of the typical size .4 ounces. I actually like that aspect of this nail polish though –I really struggle to get through a whole bottle without it drying up and clumping on me.  All in all, I think this was a really good purchase, and I won’t be surprised if I ended up reaching for another bottle of Red Steady Go once it runs out! 🙂


Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polish



So, on Wednesday, in my Things I Want blog post, I mentioned that I really wanted the Revlon Parfumerie nail polish in Surf Spray. And yesterday, I mentioned that I bought it in my An Unlikely Haul post. So today, I figured I’d actually show you what it looks like on me!



I really like this nail color. It has a pearlescent finish to it, which I think is really nice. And the nail polish bottle doesn’t lie –once it’s dry, it really does have a nice ocean scent to it. It’s a really pretty translucent blue that’s perfect if you want a nice subtle look to your manicure/pedicure. The coats are thin, which lend this translucent look to the nail polish. I’m actually wearing three coats, for a more opague look. While I know a lot of people don’t like nail lacquers with a thin formula, I think they’re fun for softer looks. And because you can build them, you can wear Surf Spray as light or as bold as you want. I’m not sure if this is true for all of the Parfumerie polishes, as this is the only one I have tried. I have found that oftentimes there are different levels of opacity within the same collection, depending on pigment.

PLUS -Another great aspect of this nail polish is that it’s DBP, Toluene, and Formaldehyde free.



As for application, I’d say this nail polish is pretty typical for drug store quality nail polishes. One coat dries in a breeze, two coats take a little longer, and you have to be careful with the third coat. Even though the third coat seemed dry, I still managed to dent and smudge one of my nails when I was placing my SD card back into my camera. That said, a nail enamel dryer, or just some extra time would have taken care of this little issue. When it comes to applying evenly, I thought this Revlon nail polishes did a good job of not streaking weirdly. Also, I didn’t have that annoying issue of the tips of my nails not being coated correctly, which was nice.



Recently, I have started to take more of a look into Revlon products in general. Of the four “mega-brands” in my drugstore –Maybelline, L’Oreal, Revlon and Covergirl, Revlon is the only company that claims to distribute cruelty free products in the US (granted, their nail polishes are animal tested in China as required by law… but that’s a whole other debate). I also like that Revlon has more of a retro feel to their brand. And, looking over the years, Revlon nail polishes have been some of my favorites. In fact, I wore a Revlon nail polish for my pedicure for my own wedding!

Rimmel Blue My Mind Nail Polish


So, here is the review of my favorite Rimmel Nail Polish… finally. It’s called Blue My Mind, and it is part of the 60 Second Collection by Rimmel. It’s a beautiful mid-tone blue, and I think it’s perfect for summer. It is slightly glossy, and I love the color. It applies the most evenly of the 3 Rimmel nail polishes that I’ve tried (You can also see my beauty reviews on Mintilicious and Purple Reign!).



That being said, I’ve had it for a year, and it has started to clump. So, keep in mind that with the Rimmel 60 Second Nail Polishes, that they last a year. Thankfully, the bottle is small, and is super cheap –only $1.50, compared to the typical $4-9 bottles of polish you can buy at Wal-Mart.



What do you think? Does Blue My Mind look like a color you’d like in your nail polish collection?

Rimmel Purple Reign Nail Polish



So, I have another Rimmel 60 Seconds Mini Nail Polish to review. This shade is called Purple Reign, and I love it! It’s a beautiful, cool-toned shade of purple, and I love to wear it. The one thing I will say about it, is that it is a bit streaky, and does not meet its “one coat” guarantee. That said, two coats, or even three, leaves you with a gorgeous manicure or pedicure. It’s pretty easy to take off, and I love the fact that this nail polish comes in such a small bottle. As it is with me, so many bottles of nail polish, so little time… 🙂



Though it is streaky, I like Purple Reign a little more than the Mintilicious shade that I reviewed previously -I think the color is more flattering on my skin. If you’re looking for a fun, medium-toned blue-purple, this is a great option. And for $1.49, it’s a good deal!



Rimmel Mintilicious Nail Polish



I’ve decided to take up a challenge – Project Trash Ten -I found this awesome idea on the blog Lip Gloss And A Backpack, and am using it with the blogger’s permission. Basically, it’s a challenge to use up 10 full-size products (and/or 20 sample size products) before buying any new beauty products. And while I’m at it, I figure I’ll work on reviewing products that I have about my bathroom. Hence this review.

If you haven’t heard of the Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish, it’s a fast-drying lacquer that comes in smaller bottles. Instead of the typical .5 fl oz, it’s .27 fl oz. I have yet to finish an entire bottle of nail polish, so the smaller size is preferable to me.



This color, number 210, and called Mintilicious, is a pastel mint. The first coat goes on a little streaky, but the second coat looks good. It’s a nice even, opague mint with two coats, and I like that. It’s not my favorite of the four shades of Rimmel 60 seconds that I own, but it’s still pretty.



As you can see, it isn’t the right undertone for my skin. Anything warm toned makes my skin look red, which is a bit annoying. But, it’s not too bad. And if you’re looking for a warm-toned mint, this is the color for you
