Zoya in LC


Brand: Zoya Professional Lacquer

Shade: LC
(red coral color, glossy finish)

Cost: $$$

The Scoop:
I think Zoya only names their polishes after famous girls because somehow there's an LC but not a Jennifer. Really? Lawrence, Aniston, Garner, Lopez... Love-Hewitt... get on that!

Next Shade: Revlon in Pink Pineapple

MAC in Snob


 
Shade: Snob
(carnation pink color, glossy finish)
 
Cost: $$$
 
The Scoop:
This is a very girly shade.  It took 3 coats to get coverage that was mostly opaque.  I guess it's nice, but it's not really me.

Marc Jacobs in Blue Velvet


Brand: Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer

Color: Blue Velvet
(deep teal color, shimmer finish)

Cost: $$$$

The Scoop:
This shade is prettier in person, the shimmery finish isn't coming through here, but it's a very rich shade. Still not convinced it's worth the price, but a nice one, nevertheless.

ELLE in Pink About It & Bright Young Thing


Brand: ELLE Nail Lacquer

Shades: Pink About It & Bright Young Thing

Cost: $$$

The Scoop:
I got a dotting tool because it looks so easy to use on Pinterest. It's not. Looks blobby and took forever to dry. Maybe I need a YouTube tutorial...

Claire's in Snowball


Brand: Claire's Cosmetics Nail Polish

Shade: Snowball
(creamy white color, glossy finish)

Cost: $

The Scoop:
I know white polish is a trend these days, but I can't get on board. So I added these heart stickers to the middle of my nails and liked it a bit more. They're from Claire's too.

Shade: Emerson
(baby blue color, black speckled glossy finish)

This came in one my Julep Mystery Boxes.  I was skeptical at first, but I liked it once I saw the different speckled layers on my nails. Like a fancy Easter egg.

Sally Hansen in Booty Camp


Brand: Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips

Shade: Booty Camp
(pink & white camouflage pattern, matte finish)

Cost: $$

The Scoop:
These polish strips are fun and pretty easy to apply.  I don't know if I can deal with this particular pattern on every finger, but maybe an accent nail or two would be cute.

Essie in On a Silver Platter


Brand: Essie Nail Lacquer

Shade: On a Silver Platter
(silvery gold shade, blue and iridescent glitter with metallic finish)

Cost: $$

The Scoop:
This is a shade shifter, depending on the light it looks silver or gold, and the glitter is blue or iridescent. Lots going on here, but I kinda like it.
