NOTD: Nina Ultra Pro Molten Copper

This is a really cool, interesting color in the bottle, but unfortunately that doesn't translate so well onto nails. It's a light shimmery brown with a green, pink, and yellow duochrome. At times this is apparent on your nails, but for the most part it isn't.
I included this picture to show how it looks in the bottle. Here you can really see the green duochrome!

NOTD: L.A. Colors Blue Paradise

Light blue with a light orange-yellow duochrome. This polish is a bit too sheer for my liking, but it's definitely an interesting color! It reminds me of cotton candy a bit.

NOTD: China Glaze Frostbite

Really pretty dark shimmery blue. I was apprehensive to get this because I was afraid it would be just another dark shimmery blue, just the same as all of the others out there, but I found that this one is different for some reason and is definitely my favorite because it's a tiny bit lighter and more shimmery than the rest. In natural light the color almost seems to glow.

NOTD: Sally Hansen DVD

This polish is bad and good. The color, of course, is AMAZING. I mean, look at it! it's a really sparkly blue-purple, but not the chunky kind of glitter, the very small, smooth kind. The bad part is the formula; its VERY sheer and requires many coats, making it thick and goopy on nails. It also takes a long time for it to fully dry because of that and for some reason I find that when polishes have long drying times, they seem to recede from the edge of your nails, which is what you see in the picture below.
the purple duochrome:

NOTD: China Glaze Ruby Pumps

Amazing red glittery polish. I think this is an essential color to have, especially for the holidays! I wore it on thanksgiving =)
My picture doesn't do it justice, it's much sparklier in person!

NOTD: Color Club Trippie Hippie

Sorry for the tipwear, I had this one on for a few days. it's not as dark as some metallic dark blues, but its really pretty, I love blues like this.

NOTD: Color Club Pure Energy

Gorgeous medium blue metallic with a lighter blue shimmer

NOTD: Brucci Jaded

very pretty mint green frost

NOTD: Color Club Flair

nice orange-red shimmer

NOTD: Sinful Colors Purple Diamond

Really pretty light purple glass-fleck polish.

NOTD: Color Club De-luxe-cious

This color has a metallic, blue-grey base filled with subtle yellow, orange, green, and blue glitter. I didn't like this polish at all, I just don't think it looks good. The base color isn't that nice, and then the glitter makes it all bumpy (even with Seche top coat). Also, the formula was very thick and goopy.

NOTD: China Glaze Ick-a-Body

Really cool orange glitter in a grey jelly base. Reminds me of maple leaves, and it's perfect for halloween!

NOTD: Milani Pink Pop

Bright hot pink creme, but not quite neon

NOTD: Milani Cyberspace

Exactly the same as China Glaze Kaleidoscope Him Out, but not quite as holographic. still very pretty though!

NOTD: Nubar 2010, Over Black

This polish is... beyond words! I loooove flaky polishes! This is basically little metallic flakes in a clear base, but over black so that they show up as colorful. the effect they have is soo cool, it's a coppery color mainly, but also yellowy gold and then green on the sides. So many people would stare at my nails, puzzled, trying to figure out what exactly could create that!

NOTD: Chameleon Blue Sky

This is such an interesting color! it's like blue, green, and purple at the same time! Unfortunately, however, that mostly shows up only in the bottle and the formula is quite annoying to work with =(

NOTD: Color Club Electronica

Super gorgeous deep purple with a pink shimmer to it, not at all as blue as it appears in the picture, but cameras always do that with deep purples for some reason!

NOTD: Mattese What a Shock

Shimmery neon green, much more grass-green in real life

NOTD: OPI Don't Socra-tease Me

really pretty red with a slight pink shimmer.

NOTD: NYC Classic Coral Creme

not a fan of this one, I have to say. the formula was very annoying and the color was not too great, but this is coming from me, who doesn't really like pinks at all unless it's an interesting or neon one, so this didn't cut it.

NOTD: Zoya Happi

I think it's name basically sums it up, a Happi color! lol it's a super pretty bubblegum pink with a yellow duochrome. It has an almost glasslike effect, its hard to describe. Easily one of my favorite polishes!

NOTD: Avon Jade

Very pretty pastel green creme

NOTD: 10 Professional Nail Lacquer Put A Ring on it

Your basic chrome silver. meh. not too "wowed" by this, it seems like the generic silver that every brand has, and the formula is disasterous. When it comes to chrome silvers, I think I'll stick with China Glaze Millenium, PERFECT color =)
