Michael Kors in Sensation

Brand: Michael Kors Nail Lacquer, Sexy Shades

Shade: Sensation
(tomato red shade, glossy finish)

Cost: $$$$

The Scoop:
I know this is expensive, but I just can't say no to Michael. When I go for a bright red shade, I like ones like this that lean orange. I think it looks freshest on short nails. It also goes on in two coats and is super shiny -- for this price, it had better!

Butter London in Disco Biscuit

Brand: Butter London 3 Free Nail Lacquer-Vernis

Shade: Disco Biscuit
(fuchsia pink color, purple iridescent glitter finish)

Cost: $$$

The Scoop:
Here's an oldie from Butter that reminds me of my love of ABBA and 70s disco. The shade is great and the iridescent microglitter pushes it over the top, but I wish it wasn't so sheer. LOTS of coats used here. But it will make you look good on the dancefloor.

Brand: Revlon Color Stay Longwear Nail Enamel

Shade: Indigo Night
(electric blue color, glossy finish)

Cost: $$

The Scoop:
Today's my brother's bday, so in his honor, I went with his favorite color: Blue. This is a great one because it does stay on a long time without fading or chipping. Revlon's reliable like that. Just like my bro!

Sally Hansen in Crushed

Brand: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color

Shade: Crushed
(traffic cone orange color, metallic finish)

Cost: $$

The Scoop:
Summer has unofficially started, so it's time to show those pasty fingers and toes the sun! Only a bright color will do. Though, as much as I love Sally, this might not be the one. If it wasn't metallic, it could be great. But it is. So it's just kind of...cheap.  Color me crushed.

Nails Inc in Sloane Street & Knightsbridge

Brand: Nails Inc. 2 in 1 Pop Art Polish

Shades: Sloane Street & Knightsbridge
(bubble gum pink color with glossy finish & pink and blue confetti matte glitter with clear finish)

Cost: $$$

The Scoop:
Remember last week I wore a shade only suitable for girls 13 and under? Well, chalk another up for the tweens. I will say, this one looks more fun than it is. The pink needs a boost of gloss and the confetti needs to be applied so many times to actually cover your nail. Not worth the time, or money.

Sally Hansen in Flame On & Twinkled Pink

Brand: Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish

Shades: Flame On & Twinkled Pink
(hot pink color with iridescent finish & pinky gold color with glitter finish)

Cost: $$

The Scoop:
Sally's my girl but I think this color combo should come with an age limit.  Like nobody over 13 years old can wear it. So I had to take it off a day after I put it on. But if you're in grammar school, go for it!

Michael Kors in Rio de Janiero

Brand: Michael Kors Nail Lacquer, Limited Edition

Shade: Rio de Janiero
(pale rose gold color, iridescent metallic finish)

Cost: $$$$

The Scoop:
Wearing Michael Kors polish makes me feel fancy. And this one makes me think of the beach at sunset, which is where I wish I was instead of in my apartment glowing in the light of my laptop. This shade does not, however, come with a passport to Rio. Go figure.
