This is one of those polishes that looks so dark in the bottle but then you hold it in the light just the right way and you get the color. I had to work on angles for the photos so that this could work, but in the shot just above you can see the color in the bottle and on the nail. It is a really spectacular blue once you see it.

Thoughts: Good application and formula – a bit tricky with the color, but not bad enough to let go.
Verdict: Another for the share pile.

Bonus for today – I wanted to share my find from Target for the best glitter removal!

Target up & upâ„¢ Maximum Strength Acetone Nail Polish Remover Dip-It.

There is a BRUSH in there! All of those little plastic bristles make for incredibly easy removal of all polishes and the best experience I have had with removing anything with glitter in it. Yes I know the acetone is bad for your skin and nails, but I will talk about how I counteract that in another post. If you use glitter and have trouble removing it, pick this up for a few bucks at Target, because it will make polish removal SO MUCH easier. Try it out – use some moisturizer afterwards, you will be fine!

Polish Project #25

98. Cover Girl Gold Rush
99. Sally Hansen Aisle Be There (32 cents on Amazon!)
100. Maybelline Rock Out (Apparently an old Limited Edition, this is an eBay link.)
101. Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor
102. Orly Love Each Other
103. OPI Servin’ Up Sparkle

As listed above, random topcoats!

I decided not to wear these for the test, since they don’t really have wear to report on. So I painted a bunch of nails on the wheel with some black polish and went to town.

98-100 Cover Girl Gold Rush, Sally Hansen Aisle Be There, Maybelline Rock Out.

100 Maybelline Rock Out.

100-102 Maybelline Rock Out, Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor, Orly Love Each Other.

101-102 From Top- Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor, Orly Love Each Other.

103 OPI Servin’ Up Sparkle.

Thoughts: These are all serviceable. I don’t think I appreciated the slight flakiness that the Sally Hansen Aisle Be There gives off so I’ll be working with that one again. You can see in the bottle picture that I use Servin’ Up Sparkle quite a bit, it’s great for space nails when I need the glitter variety. The only one I might dump is Sinful Colors because it’s so basic, but maybe that’s good every now and then.
Verdict: They all get to stay for now. I am looking forward to the showdown posts for all of the “maybe” nail polishes I have identified during this process.
