This is a really bright color. I didn't expect it to be that bright in real life, even though I've seen it that way in photos. The application sucks like a lot of the Up & Away polishes. Three annoying stringy but thick coats. Some bald spots are left after two so I think it really needs three. I should've thinned it before instead of after. 5 drops of Seche Restore did the trick.
Also, I've seen Zoya say their polishes are B3F and also camphor free. I never knew camphor was in polish because I never smelled it in there, but this baby smelled like Campho-Phenique so strongly. You know, the stuff used to numb cold sores and canker sores. I think Carmex has it in it too, which doesn't make sense if it's supposed to moisturize your lips. Camphor dries things out. That must be a way for them to keep your lips chapped so you keep buying it. But I digress.

Shhh, I didn't do clean up, I haven't been feeling well so pretend you don't see the polish on my skin.
I've also been disappearing and popping up randomly. Sorry, again, not feeling well. It'll probably be like that for a while.

I love that this is for cancer, because my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 and died in 2008. She was the most precious thing in life to me. Enough blabbing about me, here's the colors.

At least Rain Storm will get more attention. I still wonder when Vintage Vixen is coming out. Fall I'm assuming. I can't wait! Oh, and these are coming out sometime in May.

Anyway, this is one of three Nfu Ohs that I got from the sale at Fabulous Street. It's the most awesome holo-y polish I've seen. It's a celadon green holo that looks really silver indoors to me. I don't even remember how many coats this was. 4, 5? I don't know I lost count after I dropped my brush and in a frenzied attempt to catch it, smeared 4 nails and had to do it ALL OVER AGAIN. I was hot boxing in my bathroom with those Nfu Oh fumes. I thought I was gonna pass out. And there's still some bald spots. The most annoying thing is that you can't go over an already painted spot or it pulls off the polish that was there. Oh well, it's worth it for holo goodness.
I also have my Canon working again, so say bye bye to crappy photos! Woop woop! It's still being stupid though so the pictures are still unsatisfactory. Excuse the stupid looking pointer finger it broke along with my middle and I can't bear to file it down.
There was no sun out, actually I missed the sun, so the outdoor pics are less than thrilling. I can take some tomorrow if it doesn't chip by then.

This is such a pretty stark pink pastel, but I was cringing while applying this. I did 3 coats on my left and 4 on my right. It just wasn't evening out and I still had bald spots. I recommend starting with a thin coat, then doing thick coats after that. Maybe the reason it was so thick and annoying was because it's been sitting with it's neglected, unused siblings for 6 months.
I was gonna do a comparison with Something Sweet, but they kept showing up white on my camera. So...I failed again?

There was hardly any sun, I had to play tag with it again. It was hard for me to get the shimmer to show up. I tried.
On an unrelated note, I was browsing on ebay and decided to see how much Clarins 230 was running for. $81!! The bids keep rising and rising. I can't believe that, it's the highest price I've seen for a discontinued polish. I though Rainforest and Creme de Menthe were high, damn!

I failed to take a color accurate picture. There was no sun out so it's much more red than this. It was a funny sight, I was running around chasing the little patches of sun that would show up for 2 seconds, holding my hand with the bottle in it up to the sky. I'm sure my neighbors think I'm even more deranged now.

I saved his life. He was being beaten down by one of my cats, Paloma.
