61. Fresh Paint Witchcraft (Found at Five Below a while back, can’t find it online)
62. A England Elaine
63. Essie Velvet Voyeur
64. Estee Lauder Berry Desire (Random eBay result – this seems to be unavailable in the US)

My pictures will be improving soon. In a few posts, I will start using the photos from my SLR, which are much improved.

Wow, I need to improve application near the cuticles there. Oy.
From index finger down – Fresh Paint Witchcraft, A England Elaine, Essie Velvet Voyeur, and Estee Lauder Berry Desire.

You can see in the picture of my nails that where I missed a coat is where you can see the real color. My index finger looks a lot bluer in this photo, and my pinkie is much more on the burgundy side, but I got away with everyone thinking I had the same color on all of my nails.

Thoughts: These are ALL good polishes. Especially impressed with the Fresh Paint that I think I paid like $2 for at Five Below. Application on all was easy enough, no brutal brushes or formulas to deal with.
Verdict: The plan for now is to share the Fresh Paint and the Estee Lauder with Mom, and hoard the others for me. I can’t resist a vampy dark polish.

What’s your favorite dark purple polish? Share in the comments.

Polish Project #5

26. OPI Do You Lilac It?
27. Essie Lapis of Luxury
28. Essie Cocktail Bling
29. Estee Lauder Tempting Melon (This was in a set of minis, I can’t find this online for sale)
30. OPI Sparrow Me The Drama

I was looking at my polish shelf and this project started feeling very overwhelming. So, drastic measures were taken.

5 polishes at a time.

R to L: OPI Do You Lilac It?, Essie Lapis of Luxury, Essie Cocktail Bling, Estee Lauder Tempting Melon, OPI Sparrow Me the Drama

On the nails:

R to L: OPI Do You Lilac It?, Essie Lapis of Luxury, Essie Cocktail Bling, Estee Lauder Tempting Melon, OPI Sparrow Me the Drama

I tried to pick colors that sort of went together, and it turned into a sort of Easter manicure. Luckily these polishes were all very similar in terms of staying power.

Thoughts: By some miracle, all of these had great application and formulas. I’m not normally a pastel kind of chick, so these polishes haven’t been utilized all that much. The Estee Lauder polish was from a set that I think might have been only released in Europe, as my mother-in-law bought the set for me, and she lives in Dubai. I think I need more Essie polishes too, all of the bottles I’ve tried recently have been great.
Verdict: Keeping all of these, the colors are fun and formulas are not challenging.

Variety post coming up next time, as well as a review of a night of polish experiments with my BFF David.
