SinfulColors - Treasure Chest and Emerald Envy

Today I'd like to share two beautiful new colors from SinfulColors' Crystal Crushes collection, namely Treasure Chest and Emerald Envy.  Take a peek!
I used Treasure Chest on all but the ring finger.  Ring finger is Emerald Envy.  Two coats on each nail.

I'm definitely a fan of textured polishes which is such a surprise to me.  What is neat about these particular polishes, especially Emerald Envy, is that they not only have texture but a bit of a shimmery finish.  I really liked these colors and they lasted for several days without chipping.  The only downside was that they stained my nails, badly.  But hey, such is the case for many polishes that I like, it's the nature of the beast. Despite the staining, I would recommend these for anyone who wants to try a unique take on the texture trend.

These polishes were provided to me for my honest consideration.

Sally Hansen - Triple Shine

I received five polishes from Sally Hansen's Triple Shine line to review for you.  The colors are Blow Bubbles, Make Waves, Pool Party, Drama Sheen and Clam Up.  I'll start you off with a bottle shot.
Here they are on my nails.  I used two coats of each polish.
I'll cut right to the chase, I was seriously disappointed with these polishes.  As you can see, even after two coats, they are EXTREMELY sheer.  The brushes were fantastic, nice and wide and easy to use, and the formulas applied with ease.  Thus, I was super-bummed when they didn't achieve opacity or even get close to it after two coats.  However, if you know someone young who wants to play with color but you don't want them to go overboard, these might be a nice option for experimenting.  

These polishes were provided to me for my honest consideration.

China Glaze - Bump in the Night

Today I'd like to share my thoughts on China Glaze's Bump in the Night.  It's part of their 2013 Monster's Ball collection.  Feast your eyes.
This is a Texture polish and as such, I was predisposed to love it just from the bottle.  Sure enough, it did not disappoint.  It provided great opacity in just one coat (though I used two for this picture).  I'm a sucker for a black polish and this is one I know I will wear often.
