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.
