    For me, it’s away too little polish for the price. You’re paying for the name and (for me) who cares? I care about the product itself. I’ll stick with OPI, Essie and Zoya any day over this.

    My Nordstrom actually had these when I was there this past Friday!

  3. Natalia

    Surprised about the green and blue shades.

    ‘Frozen Fantasy’ and ‘Rosa Rosa’ have been in the line FOREVER – especially Rosa Rosa. I think there would be a bunch of people complaining of those colors (especially Rosa Rosa) were discontinued. Christine – are these a revamp of the entire line of Pure Color Nail Polishes, meaning, are these additions to the existing collection, or are they doing away with the existing colors? (BTW – I’m still cracking up at the np called ‘Oyster Cult’.)

  5. I am loving these colors…. <3 <3

    Ooh! I have been looking for a perfect brown nailpolish for a while, and chocolate crave might be it!!

    Will you show pictures of them on your nails? :)

    The same old boring colours… again! :-( We already have tons of reds and pinks so, why bothering creating the same polishes again and again!

  9. Lovely colours, wonder if I react to this nailpolish… Love the ones with shimmer!

    Will you be reviewing any of the estee lauder nail lacquers? I’m trying to decide between going from a few Chanel vernis or Estee Lauder lacquers and I’d love to see a review to hear more about the texture, use, streakiness et cetera.
