Cult Nails Awakening, and Hypnotize Me

2 coats
I love colors like this, a little smoky, and murky.

I took off Awakening from my ring finger so you could see how Hypnotize Me looks on its own.
1 coat ove Awakening, and 3 coats on it's own.
This is awesoe as a layering polish! Look at all that sparkle!!!

I love this color. I had to buy it for the name!

Claire's Cotton Candy Scented Polish

2 coats
I really like this color, is has a little blue shimmer that make it really special.
It smells like the Cotton Candy BubbleYum gum, which I loved as a kid =P
It is still available at Claire's

Nails Inc Westminster

3 coats
with one coat of Matte About You: 
This must be older as well as I can't find any information on it

This is the only Nails Inc color that I have been really dissapointed with.
A streaky mess! Not even the Matte Top Coat is able to fix it.

I find it interesting that Westminster is also the name of one of the colors available at your local Sephora store, a lovely pueple. Not available on line.

Maybellin Purple Trend

This is a (very) brownish purple. I sound it at KMart, a lonely bottle in an almost empty maybelline makeup fixture. The KMart in Manhattan is terrible, but sometimes you can find some things.

Lavender- 3 coats

Pink- 3 coats

Take a look at your local Claire's location as these polishes are on clearance tight now =P

This must be an old polish as I cant find any information on it,
all I can tell you is that it was part of a set.

OPI Pros & Bronze

4 coats!

It is a very pretty glowy copper color, but I don't know if I will ever have the patience to spend the time to apply 4-5 coats! It is lovely as a top coat as well. Something other than my usual silver loves.

Layla Magneffect Metallic Sky

ONE COAT!!!
This is the last of the Magnetics that I have for now.
Aren't they cool?!!!

Comparison of Essie Dive Bar and Models Own Pro Midnight Blue

Index and Ring finger: Models Own Pro Midnight Blue
Middle and Pinkie: Essie Dive Bar
When I first saw these polishes in the bottle they seemed very similar, but on the nails they are very different. The shimmer in Dive Bar is mainly Teal and much smaller than the shimmer particles in Midnight Blue. The particles in Midnight Blue are teal and pink and blue as well. It is more complicated on the nail.

Nails Inc Clerkenwell

2 coats
Nails Inc Description: Deep Dark Teal

Layla Magneffect Purple Galaxy

1 (ONE) coat!!!
I love magnetic colors, I am going to have to pick some morcolors up.
This was only ONE coat, and it completely covered!
Also I would recommend that you wait a bit before adding your top coat, as it can pull the design.
