Straight to the pretties:
Rimmel Play Fast - Killer Queen
- purchased at Rexall (chain drug store) for $3.26 CDN
Killer Queen is such a gorgeous colour - a reddish purple base with gold shimmer. I am not the only one that enjoys this polish as I got many compliments while wearing it.
As with all the Rimmel polishes that I've tried, Killer Queen applied smoothly (and easily thanks to a wonderfully wide and nicely shaped brush) and covered nicely in two coats. Unfortunately, it is not the most sturdy polish - I had chips after only two days.
Sally Hansen Ista Dri - Blue Streak
- purchased at Zehrs (chain grocery store) for $5.99 CDN
I am a sucker for a turquoise polish - I probably have 10 turquoise polishes in my stash that are only very subtly different from each other. So when I saw my beloved SH Insta Dri polish in Blue Streak, I had high hopes that I could keep it and adopt out the other turquoises to good homes. It, however, was not to be.
Let me first begin by saying the colour is beautiful - this metallic blue reminds me of beetle wings. Neither is the problem with the application or consistency, as both were good. The issue is with the wear, or lack of wear to be specific. After less than 24 hours, I had chips and a bit of peeling. Not good.
Avon Nailwear Pro - Ruby Slipper
- purchased at avon.ca for $2.99 CDN
There's no place like home, there's no place like home... Ruby Slipper is exactly what you'd expect based on the name - a rich red base, packed with red glitter. This polish is a red lover's red (I bet Summerset would love this polish).
As with all the Avon polish I have used, the polish is quite good. Ruby Slipper applied easily (although the consistency was a tad thin), covered nicely (two coats for opacity) and wore well (only tip wear after two days).
So, grab Toto, channel your inner Dorothy and ease on down the road into Ruby Slipper.
