NOTD: Hot Topic Chunky Green Glitter

Large and small pieces of green glitter in a dark green jelly base. I want to love this polish, but there's something about it, I think it's the formula/ the brush that i just don't like.. it was a bit messy because Hot topic has really bad brushes and it took 4 coats to get it this opaque.

NOTD: China Glaze Jitterbug

Awesome shimmery dark grey polish! It's a dark grey base with a light silver sheen of glass flecks. Great formula, this was 2 coats, and yeah, it's a great color!

NOTD: Color Club Wild and Willing

WHAT an awesome nail polish! I mean seriously, look how amazing it is!! It's a sort of light copper foil finish that reflects yellow, pink, and green depending on how you look at it. The formula is perfection, opaque in 2 coats, and I recommend wearing it without a topcoat.

NOTD: Sally Hansen Purple Pizzazz

I'm kind of disappointed with this color... It looks so amazing in the bottle and then you put it on and it's just a let down. In the bottle it looks like there's going to be so much pretty glitter, but on, barely any glitter is visible, plus it's in a completely see-through, jelly base. In person, the jelly base is not as see-through as it is in the picture with flash, but that's all it shows up as, a dark purple jelly.
The formula is pretty good, as are all of the Sally Hansen formulas, it was "opaque" in 4 coats, that is, somewhat not see through anymore. I guess I just wish the glitter would actually show up on nails.

NOTD: Zoya Crystal

I must say, Zoya has some of the BEST polishes I have ever seen, by far. This one's a gorgeous medium-light blue shimmer with tiny, sparkly flecks of gold all throughout it, that give it this unique sheen, that I think is best seen in the 3rd picture. Of course, the formula is amazing, this was 2 coats and completely opaque, no problems with application.

NOTD: China Glaze Metallic Muse

Another polish in China Glaze's Khrome collection. Gorgeous pale blue chrome, with an amazing formula, opaque in one coat! Definitely one of my top polishes!
I also added a coat of China Glaze Crushed Candy over it and I thought the result was pretty cool, since they're both around the same shade of color, but completely different finishes. The chrome really stuck out and lit up through the cracks.

NOTD: Sinful Colors San Francisco

Standard dark, shimmery green, a perfect Christmas green. The formula was very good, opaque in 3 coats and very smooth. Love it!

NOTD: Zoya Tangy

Awesome shimmery lime green! This is such a great color for summer and spring, so bright and happy! It also has this subtle peach-y duochrome that can, in the pictures below, be seen on the side of the bottle facing down, especially in the third picture. The formula is great of course, simply because it's Zoya and all of their formulas are great. It is a bit sheer though, this was 3-4 coats.

NOTD: Nina Orange Flame

Hey everyone,
I'm so sorry I haven't been posting even though I said I would... I have 2 posts for tonight though! This one is Nina Orange Flame, which is a typical neon orange. Of course, my camera doesn't capture the color properly, but I'm sure you've all seen some sort of neon orange at some point in your lives, so you know what it looks like. Good formula, a bit sheer, this was 4 coats.
I also got some of the China Glaze crackles and I LOVE them! Over Orange Flame, I put Cracked Concrete crackle and I really liked how it turned out, it looks like molten lava!!
